Full disclosure: this comes from /v/, but there is photo evidence and multiple reports so I thought I'd post it here anyways.
At my best buy, the rep told us they only got one Station to set up. They expect low numbers that turned out to be completely wrong. There was up around 200 people in line at any time before 40 minutes till 8pm.
Rep told me they were completely unprepared for the event turnout numbers.
A best buy employee also talked about how Microsoft and Sony have contracts with them to limit competitor demo stations allowed in different stores.
Also in another thread I saw how a Microsoft employee visited a best buy to talk about the Xbox One.
The same thing happened to me where a dude in a Grey-white shirt showed up and asked why everyone was in line. We said Wii U. He said Why?! Why not just go pre-order the Xbox One. He talked about the Xbox One and started to talk to others in line.
People in line told him to leave them alone. He didn't wear a Microsoft t-shirt though.
Culver City here, saw some people in MS shirts, but too many people were bashing the xbone - they didn't speak up at the part of the line I was, but I saw them near the back
This video shows the person above.
Anyone here been to the events have a similar experience?
There was a guy wearing a collared Microsoft shirt at my Best Buy. I did not speak to him, but he was definitely lingering and speaking to people around the demo station.
There was a guy in a microsoft shirt at my best buy, but I'm not sure if it was relevant to this event or not. The best buy usually has reps from various companies (apple, samsung occasionally, microsoft) in it so I dunno.
This is hilarious though, regardless.
