Honestly, we left before midnight's first purchase. After we'd heard that the Times Square Toys R' Us had 5,000 of them (compared to 400 PS3s in NY, and 700 in SF), we knew that all would be good, and the Wii's would flow like water. But if you were wondering what went down when the clock struck 12, here's a photo gallery courtesy of our man on the street, Adam Frucci, and some Gizmodo readers who stuck it out past their bedtime.
