PlayStation 3 Melee Watch: Riot Edition

The PlayStation 3 Mayhem reached UCLA-like proportions last night, as a Best Buy manager announced to 50 people that only 35 PS3 units were available. Ruh roh.

The crowd then rushed the entrance, which caused the manager to pull down the shutters and barricade himself in. Police on the scene labeled the crowd an "unlawful gathering", then used batons on people who were being uncooperative. To those baton-ed: better that than having to play through NBA 07 or Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire.
