Someone already lined up for the 3DS in the US!?

The Nintendo 3DS is coming out on march 27, 2011 in the US and we have an avid Nintendo fan already lined up almost a week in advance. If that's not loyalty and dedication, I don't know what is. But seriously?? 1 week in advance?!

This guy started lining up Monday with a buddy so they will be there all week fighting the cold in front of a Best Buy. It's apparently his tradition. He's done it in all Nintendo system launches and he just wants to keep the tradition alive. At the same time, he's looking forward for a chance to get free stuff for being in the first batch of buyers.

I know we all here love video games but is it worth spending your whole week for being first in line which you have already paid for??
