Only 16 hours to go until the Sony PS3's formal release to the public in Tokyo, Japan. The store did not want lines to form too early and forced would-be customers to the opposite side of the street.
Many other stores in Japan have taken to a lottery system to figure out who is allowed the chance to buy the new console.
The Sony PS3 will be released to North America, Hong Kong and Taiwan on November 17th. According to Sony, Europe won't be able to purchase a system until March, 2007.
