Yeah there's nothing on the planet that would make me want to risk getting trampled unless it's like the apocalypse and there's cure devices that for some reason sell in limited quantities and cost $400 (in other words completely unrealistic)
Man I am so glad I preordered my console at a local EB games/GameStop in Canada right after E3
My launch experience was...
Wake up in the morning, eat breakfast, go for a jog, do some personal stuff, check GAF, then go out for lunch...
I later get a call from my cousin walking by the store telling me that the line had eased up and at around 2:30 in the afternoon go to my local EB games where the line was now gone... Chat with the clerks get my PS4 and go home
The most relaxing launch ever!
Edit: Also the funny thing is no hardware problems
