This Korean Couple Are Braving the Cold to Be First in Line for a PS4

Now that's dedication
While we sit in the comfort of our homes playing Knack, it's easy to forget that the PlayStation 4 hasn't actually released worldwide yet. The next-gen system is launching in South Korea on 17th December, and at the time of writing, there are already two dedicated fans camping out to nab their very own black box.
33-year-old Hong Suk Min and his wife planned this camp-out fifteen days ago, and brought along plenty of games and books to stop themselves from going stir crazy. They also packed a tent, hundreds of hand warmers, all manner of blankets, and a lantern. Oh, and some cold medicine, just in case they get sick. "It's hard being a console video gamer in Korea," the fan told Korean website Ruliweb. "But I wanted to show everyone that we are just as passionate. We especially wanted to show Sony Korea that our market may be small, but our passion is world-class." Bravo!
A couple of weeks ago we reported on an especially committed gentlemen who waited three days in line to get the first PS4, but this adorable couple are taking their fandom to a new extreme. Heck, it even manages to warm the cockles of our cold and cynical hearts. What do you make of this exuberant show of love for console gaming? Would you brave the cold to ensure your place in line?
