Sony's Playstation 3 release is not the only game system that has gamers excited this weekend.
Nintendo releases its highly anticipated WII console on Sunday.
At $250 it is the least expensive system that will be released this year.
Nintendo hopes its unique motion sensitive controllers, online capabilities, and innovative games will lure shoppers away from the competition.
This means retailers will only get a one-day break before the massive crowds return to the stores.
