Gamers camp out for Sony's newest system

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Friday, a day many can't wait to see every week. It can mean the final stretch before free time away from work or school, but for the people that lined up outside of Best Buy Thursday night, Friday meant something more.


"We got the PS4 launching tonight," said Best Buy Electronics Associate Ryan Jerdon. "Everybody's been cheering, everybody's excited, it's cold, but it's worth it. They're going home with some good memories."


Memories that gamers like Jordan Rydzinski have been waiting a long time to have.


"I've just been looking forward to the PS4 for a long time. There's been a lot of rumors and now, it's finally here," said Rydzinski.


And he isn't the only one who's been waiting for this.


"We had a guy that camped out, he's been here since yesterday at 5," said Jerdon. "Yeah, he stayed all night, slept in his car. He's dedicated to get a PS4."


That dedicated man's name is Anthony Woodfork.


"I've been playing games since I was young, so I like to be the first one with one so I'm still a kid at heart," said Woodfork. "It's just like Christmas, (I'm) going to feel like a kid again."
