Fan Waits 29 Hours for Gears of War 3 Release

Singapore fan William Ten has probably just proved that he’s more of a fan than just about any of us.  I mean, there are plenty of game franchise out there I love, but I can’t imagine any game I’d stand in line 29 hours just to be the first to get it.

If you’ve been living under a rock, Gears of War 3 officially launched today (Tuesday) to many eager fans, but none more eager than William Ten, a Nanyang Polytechnic student in Singapore.  He wanted to be the first person to purchase GoW3 in the city, so he lined up for 29 hours.

But it gets better.  He’s also taken time off for the entire rest of the week so he can play Gears of War 3 uninterrupted.  I’m not going to lie…I’m a little jealous.  If I could take off a week in order to play a video game, I’d do it in a heartbeat.  Let’s face it though, not many of us can feasibly do that, so we have to live vicariously through people like Ten.

On top of being the first person to snag the game, William Ten got a few other GoW3 goodies and collectibles for being first in line.  So this begs the question, what game would you guys be willing to stand that long in line for?
