They started handing orange PlayStation 3 wristbands around 9 in the morning. This thin piece of plastic guarantees you and console and the Sony folks are passing them out among the line. Get one and you’re definitely buying a PS3.

If you don’t have one, then it may get dicey.

It feels like I’m in kindergarten sitting in line. They won’t let you leave for the bathroom without the pass. They’ll be feeding us throughout the day, giving us menus to choose from. Throughout the day, they’ll be giving away freebies — key chains, etc.

In addition, the Sony folks said there will be three bands playing and rumors around the line that one of them is a group featuring former member(s) of Blink 182.

Below, a PlayStation 3 banner hangs outside the parking garage. It shows the 60 gig version of the console, and yes, it’s coming out today.
