From The Associated Press: "Frustrated consumers lined up at retail
stores across the nation Thursday in what for
many was a vain attempt at obtaining what is
expected to be one of holidayâs hottest toys â
Sonyâs new PlayStation 2 video game console.
Scuffles broke out at some locations. In Minot,
N.D., police were called to a Wal-Mart store
after receiving reports of people were
threatening others waiting in line for the console."
