Albany -- Video gaming fans are bundling up and bearing the cold Thursday night to get their hands on a hot item on their wish list.

A group of college students from Americus came to Albany's Circuit City to wait in line to purchase the Playstation Three gaming system.

The systems go on sale Friday, but there's a limited supply. This store only has eight.

The campers showed up at ten Thursday morning, even though the store won't reopen until eight Friday morning to sell the gaming system.

"We all have a little group we play Madden and stuff together. We're part of a fraternity, Kappa Sigs out of Americus, We all love the little sport," said Ben Worthy.

"Hey it's great. It's a good system. I've played it. It's pretty fun ," said Circuit City store director Scott Rook.

Circuit City store director Scott Rook says they hope to have more of the PS3's before Christmas. The video-game console comes at the hefty price of $600 for the 60 gigabyte version.
