Why would anyone want to queue for a video game is beyond me. It isn't like it would be short in supply, like say theatre tickets where the demand far outstrip the supply. Not constantly refreshing video games sites because you are fed up with a certain hype can be a good thing. Just like the "revolutionary" fruit phone that was launched a few months back, overkill hype marketing can sometimes makes you hate the things associated with them.
Reminds me of other video gaming hypes - Mario 64, Twilight Princess, Final Fantasy VII, Goldeneye - all of which failed to live up to its mass-hysteria praise, at least to me.
