Gamestop is treading on dangerous ground (not really) by holding a joint Midnight release events for both Fable II
and Little Big Planet
on Monday, October 20th. I expect a quick and decisive bloodbath for the 360 Fanboys, as their Fable II costumes and associated weaponry should be an overwhelming favorite over the PS3 fanboys and their sock puppets. However, you can't count out those resourceful sock puppets, as their level editing skills give them the edge in using the local environment to their favor to take the two hours in line to make some ultra-complicated device that could give them the win. But then again, the Fable II wives and pet dogs make it three on one...Oh yeah, the lines start forming at 10 p.m.
