Okay, who would like a report on what happened?
So I met up with a few mates last night and we drank for a few hours. Wandered up to Oxford Street for about 10:15 and had a look around at the front of the queue. They had a load of press and models in skimpy clothes posing and doing various things. One of their staff was dressed as 'the wanderer' I think.
So they opened HMV up and people started going in, and the queue was moving quite quickly. The queue only looked about 30m long and we thought to ourselves "we could be in with a chance here lads" so we decided to join the back of the queue. Shock horror. When we went to join the back we found that it turned a 90 degree corner in the street and went on for about another 500m NO JOKE! 3 or 4 deep and over 500m in length - we didn't even see the end of it.
At that point it was a full abort and we went to get the tube home
Anyway one of my mates went back there today and managed to pick two copies up, I'm meeting him in Witehall after work tonight to get it off him. Woohoo D3! I am not actually excited though as I hear they're having a massive problem with logon server bandwidth. Error 37 please try again later etc.
