[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> So we're here in the Best Buy store right now, where all the madness is unfolding. We talked to a couple of people in the store, and here's what they had to say. >> Yeah, I got the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox RK. >> Buying hard discs and flashes. Just memory stuff. >> Memory. What did you guys come out here to buy today? >> I want to buy, like, a PlayStation 3, but I can't get it until Christmas. >> So what are you walking out with here today? >> I got a PS3; my sister's buying me a game, and a wireless modem so I could play online against other people. I'm just trying to have fun for my Christmas since it's gonna be cold, don't want to be outside being boring. So I'd rather just stay in the house and play this. >> Do you think the economy not doing so great this year has really had an effect on today, or not so much? What do you think? >> I think Black Friday's the day that people are gonna come to shop no matter what. And they're excited for it. We had people on line actually Wednesday night. When we left here, they were on line already for today. >> All right, so let's hop on over to the Circuit City store, see if it's just as packed. ^M00:01:05 [ Music ] ^M00:01:12 What do you think people are buying this year? What's hot? >> Well, TVs. A lot of TVs, a lot of Canon cameras, and a lot of SLRs, which is bigger cameras, basically. >> Why do you think everyone's going crazy over those? >> Because they're worth a lot of money, and today they're cheap. >> What did you end up getting? >> We bought ourself, like, Xbox 360, then these two cameras. >> All right, so I see you have both Circuit City and Best Buy bags? >> Yeah. >> You've been to both stores? >> Yeah. I've been to both stores. >> So what do you think the difference is between the two? >> Oh, this is my first time, but I think has Best Buy better deals compared to Circuit City. >> That does it today for us here in New York on Black Friday 2008. I'm Mark Licea. We'll see you later. ^M00:01:53 [ Music ]
