Bill trampled by masses of Mario Galaxy line-standers in Japan
Poor Bill (aka B-ill/Billz on the streets). He strolled down to a Softmap today to get his Super Mario Galaxy on, but nearly ended up hospitalized with a stepped-on toe after being caught up in a mob rush for the game, which came out today over there (official police photo of the scene above). The sheer numbers are breathtaking.
Actually no. Bill wasn’t there, he might’ve been somewhere buying the game, but this photo was taken by Siliconera on their journey through Akihabara, in which they found that not many people skipped work or school to buy the next chapter of the mega-est franchise of them all. Their photo evidence shows few lines for Galaxy, with most queues actually consisting of Ace Combat 6 (for 360) buyers, which also dropped today. Who’da thunk?
Me, that’s who. DOOM AND GLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!shift+1!
