Black Friday Fever to the Extreme

November 21, 2011 -

How can you tell when it’s getting closer to Black Friday - the #1 retail shopping day of the year? When people start camping out in front of stores to get their hands on some outrageous deals. But maybe some people do get a little carried away with it - like the people of St. Petersburg, Florida who have already been camping out in front of Best Buy since Monday, November 14, according to CBS Tampa.

Locals Christine Orta and nine others from three different families set up a camp and started “occupying” a Black Friday line at a St. Petersburg Best Buy. By day five, Tito Hernandez, a college student originally from Brazil, took the front of the line status for his Black Friday team. The group is calling themselves "Occupy Best Buy."

“There are 10 of us, and we take turns according to our work and school schedules,” Hernandez said.

Hernandez is making the most of his time in the line by getting some studying done.

And what is worth camping out on cold concrete in front of a Best Buy store for nine days? Savings on what every college student or most Americans can’t do without: flat screen TVs and laptops.

So, when most people are climbing in bed and reaching for the antacids, Hernandez and his nine electronics-seeking team members will be ready to cash in on their “Occupy the front of line” status with ten TVs and computers.

So what are they waiting in line for? Best Buy is offering a limited number of Sharp 42″ Class LCD 1080p HDTV's for $199.99 each or Samsung Laptops with an Intel Pentium Processor, 15.6″ display, and 4GB memory for only $299.99.

PHX Corp@Neo_DrKefka @quiknkold agreed, I think everyone needs to just STFU and play Video Games10/23/2014 - 3:50pm
Neo_DrKefkaIn a #GamerGate Stream https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nd-BahVyFYQ they are too busy talking about Brianna's Wu appearance rather than her actions. Oh god our movement has become less and less about solutions and how can we can resolve these problems.10/23/2014 - 3:28pm
quiknkoldThese people are Arms Dealers selling weapons to both sides of this war, and I feel the only way anything will change is if everybody just stops. CTFO and play games.10/23/2014 - 3:28pm
quiknkoldI'm not specifically Targeting the Gamergate people on this. But There is one or two sick Freaks out there who get their jollys on this, and they are fueled by the war they are making worse.10/23/2014 - 3:27pm
prh99How much longer can the charade continue, the extremists have driven out the majority of people that thought it was about ethics. All that's left are the hooligans.10/23/2014 - 3:25pm
quiknkoldneeds to never happen again10/23/2014 - 3:20pm
quiknkoldand really I just stoped giving a damn about those articles, because the opinions of 7+ Articles does not change the fact that I am a Gamer, That I love Games, and that I am a decent hard working Human Being. And what happened to Felicia Day, who I adore,10/23/2014 - 3:20pm
quiknkold2 reasons why I originally joined gamergate. 1: I didnt like the 7+ anti gamer articles. 2 : I thought there was real newsworthy stuff pouring out of it like the stuff involving Phil Fish. As time went by, I saw no real fruiit10/23/2014 - 3:19pm
quiknkoldcalling for a #ceasefire. cause seriously, people on both sides need to just stop, step back to their corners, and relax for a little and just not deal with this. if something happens, fine, break out the bs again. But I will not stand idle by anymore.10/23/2014 - 3:18pm
james_fudgeQuiknkold: I was sad to see that happened.10/23/2014 - 3:13pm
quiknkoldthis arguement has become utter BS and I will not stand by when somebody who posts her own fears has those fears become true10/23/2014 - 3:10pm
quiknkoldWith Felicia Day's Doxxing, I am officially against Gamergate now. Calling for a #Ceasefire on twitter. This 'crap' needs to end now. Its BS that this happened.10/23/2014 - 3:09pm
Matthew Wilsoncrt's ran over 60 fps. its just publisher choosing graphics over gameplay10/23/2014 - 3:03pm
prh99MW: I'd tend to agree. When most tv's these days are 60Hz+ LCDs, a 30fps lock seems like a relic from the CRT TV days.10/23/2014 - 2:59pm
Matthew Wilsoncall me a pc elitist if you want, but I prefer 60 fps. that being said, Nintendo is one of the few developers that makes all their games at 60 fps. Platum does that too.10/23/2014 - 2:52pm
james_fudgeNeo_DrKefka agreed.10/23/2014 - 2:42pm
prh99Saddly Ubi has locked AC:Unity to 900p on consoles at least and 30fps for everything in the name of parity, and in the case of latter issue for a "more cinematic" feel.10/23/2014 - 2:36pm

prh99Not surprising, it's their MO. I don't think there really much more to be said for GG's values at this point.10/23/2014 - 2:24pm
