In This Game, Everyone’s a Nerd

sonypsp.gifTo many, blogging is the epitome of nerd-like behaviour. A person willfully sits in front of a computer screen for hours, playing around with RSS feeds, HTML formatting, linking and Halo scan commenting. Did we mention blog-rolling? Nerdish to the max. However there does exists a more extreme case of nerdocious behaviour, and it was on full display this morning/last night around the Blockbuster/Future Shop/tech stores of the city. Sony PSP’s hit retail stores today at 12:01 a.m., greeted by long lines of you-know-who’s. There was even a PSP release party at the Blockbuster on Avenue Road (rumor has it the Vanilla Pepsi was flowing!). Other game related nerd stuff is that cashes with real-money Texas Hold’Em set up for mobile phone use.
