Isaiah-Triforce Johnson, the guy who is renowned for queueing up ridiculously early to be one of the first people to purchase Nintendo products, has announced that he’s already lining up for Wii U. Johnson tweeted earlier today that he’s currently camped out at the Nintendo World Store in midtown Manhattan, ahead of the console’s launch on November 18th.
I’d do the same if there was a Nintendo World Store in my state.
He waited in line for one week for the released of the Nintendo 3ds @ Nintendo World Store. Pretty cool dude, a true fan for shorrrrr.
He might be a fan, but he’s also an extremist.
Does this guy even have a job? Or a life for that matter? ._.
A whole month?! Nuts….
Also crazy. I’ve never met a black guy who likes Nintendo.
How many black guys have you met? lol
I know a lot of black people who love Nintendo. In fact, I’m one of them. =p
So am I!
Wrong, that was at the Union Square Best Buy in Times Square. I know because I was the 9th person in line.
yeah i met him a few time during some nintendo events in nyc its funny you guys are talking about him didnt know he was that well known but he’s a cool dude. he kind of looks like a young ganon but its crazy how he legally changed his name to triforce now thats a fan for real
Must be a freaking black bum smh welfare thats why hes waiting in line for a week. GO BACK TO AFRICA JOHNSON
What’s wrong with you? Jealous?
What a nutjob.
I once got a nutjob from my bff, i figured out he likked sony so i ran and will be at, also for the entire time that believed are he coud if can.
English mother fucker do you speak it!?
grow up you sissy why u even hear, sony fanboy
hey, stop robbing my name.
Ohhh God he returns….
I’d do the same if there was a Nintendo World Store in my house
I’ll be camping in my house and waiting for the ups guy to ring my doorbell.
Perfect answer =)
yeah i preorderd it so all be camped out in my living room ha ha ha
is he stupid, he should be working to buy more games
Haters gonna hate
why i was hating him? is true and i would say the samething to any that did that escept me of course :)
yeah why is he waiting in line at all he should have just preorderd it like a normal persone no offenc to the people that are going to wait in line
You realize that even if you preorder it and want to pick it up at Midnight, you still have to wait in line to get into the store right?
nah ha- this guy is just a hardcore!!!
and maybe homeless
The guy sponsors gamers to go to tournaments, I very much doubt he has to work to buy games…
Get a job! lol
Ummm I think he does
How else do you think he afford camping there for a month AND get it as well
I pre orderd mine, no camping get to keep a life, have sex with my wife enjoy my kids. Etc
Wow life went pretty bad on you?
Hahaha xD you people act fast
That’s all I can say in this article
Usually I avoid comment like these.
Nah, you might not believe this but… Sex is awesome stuff.. Enjoy playing with yourself in the tent!
I know right, although i’m sure its kinda exciting and fun camping out or waiting in line for a midnight launch with a bunch of people, i went to a MGS4 midnight launch, so many bandanas
Same here man. It was crazy at my local gamestop that night.
I think at one point everyone was just shouting “Metal geeeeeear!” in Snakes voice
I was also at the MGS4 launch . But obviously I was in a cardboard box ;)
Lol wow that’s all I have to say! :P
That dude must get SO LAID!
Wow. No life, much? Someone obviously has too much time on his hands. I wouldnt wanna be near him by launch day. He’ll reek of month-old stink
I think he has someone to hold his spot when he has to use the bathroom, eat, shower, etc.
haha I’d so hope so
With a username like your u dont have much of a life either. Hur Hur Derp Derp…
He’s a gamer, he has many lives.
Hur Hur…? WAIT I DON’T GET IT?!?!
What’s wrong with the username kirbymario? I
I lik penises
umm.. I don’t know how to respond to that
Spammers gonna spam.
I don’t understand the username bashing when your anon name isn’t even all that special.
Coming from a guy who still uses hur derp.
Maybe you need a can of life to slurp.
What’s wrong with my username? please enlighten me
Really? Well, to be fair, he did name himself Triforce.
Wow. just… Wow…
But kinda cool at the same time!
I’m confused :/
his body is just more ready then ours, you guys are just jealous xD
He should’ve tried pre-ordering a month ago…
I’m virtual queuing on Amazon, does that count?
Only if you have a shit bucket
Well he got his name out there. Thats all he is going for the FAME and GLORY!! AhhhAhhhh!!
What a insane lunatic, what the hell is he gonna do and eat for the next 27-8 days……netflix and saltine crackers
Ur all just jelly.
Yea, I’m the most jelly person here. Let me go cry about not camping too Wahhh
play his 3ds and order pizzas
Waiters gona wait
Is ur name suppose to be very racist?
How can you comment on anyones username?
you know if i had a nintendo store near me i would be doing exactly the same right fking now. I dont give a shit bout what ppl think… All i know is that i would be standing right next to triforce johnson waiting for my Wii U FCK YEAH!
i live near nintendo world store and i pre-ordered my wii-u deluxe from there but i’ll be damned if i’m a wait like 4 weeks on a line
Hey gyes im back, sony is stupid and nnintendo rocksz. I think xboxs jealous becuase we hav mario bros 3
Welcome to the Herd…..
Dude…November 10th .___.
No thanks I’m allergic.
I rather get car sick.
Even though I drive a lot.
I’ll eventually grow distraught.
Wherers the dick picture??
i nevre had a penis picture, but i do lik penises
Then go and eat them all and stop waisting your time
Express delivery preorder.
Well if you were in Australia, you’d probably get it a week after release xD
Luckily i live in England :p which means i still get it a week later than him xD well…least im not camping outside.
Thats insane, but if that makes him happy…

20 odd days early XD!!!!!! this guy is my hero!!!!! 1-2 days , yeh can be understood and even that is a bit far fetched.
He will loose his spot in line when he is jailed for public masterbation to a picture of the princess
more footage of Paper Mario that will be taken down!! I’m so excited
I’m excited too :P
3ds games,wiiu games nintendo is hard at work to earn our money
FFFFFFFF- argh, cmooon, i need £350 for the WiiU, and another £80-£100 for 2 games, but this and Prof Layton are released soon…ugh, my wallet, she grows weary.
The red gravarar named “peteriuss” is a sycophant and he tries to slander me by prepanding that he is me.People if you are pissed off,ask sickr to ban him,second peteriuss the real 1 is me and the faker 1 is that a super racist bastard and an inhibited person who is simmilar to that von scrotum guy.He might be von scrotum…you never know.
Still don’t belive me?Then i’ll use my facebook account to comment here and if even that super racist copy my gravatar’s immage it will be no use
you silly cunt! thats a fake of the real peteriuss me. also you are fat and gay.
Really? Gotta say, he must be one committed fellow.
I don’t think I’d ever do that though xD
If i had a car i would wait in line early at Nintendo World, this year i preordered at gamestop for the Wii U. i got the Wii on launch at Nintendo World, long 8 hour wait i honestly could do it again, sadly my family claims they still feel the pain “lol 6 years ago” of waiting on that line so no line waiting at nintendo world for me this year. Nintendo world is a good backup place to get a Wii U with no preorder though, they had plently Wii’s for the rest of that day and week just fine, Nintendo World always gets a huge stock compared to other stores.
btw this is nothing new for the guy, he waited a month for the Wii at Toysrus Time Square at launch ;)
*folds arms* gotta hand it to the guy, he’s dedicated.
This guy has WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much free time…………………………
Mike S pretty much summed that up.
This guys deserves an award
I’ll say it again this guy is obviously trying to get attention. What does he win with being first??? It’s not he’ll be the 1st to have ever try Wii U. He had Ocarina of Time 3D but waited first in line to get it too even though he had it already. I highly doubt he’ll be waiting there for literally 27 days. I would assume that loitering around anywhere is against the law. I have such a passion for Nintendo like millions around the world, but this guy really thinks he’s special, when he’s not in any way. Also for anyone who says that we’re jealous, yeah I’m not. This guy clearly just wants attention, I understand his passion, but seriously it’s obvious this guys just wants people’s attention.
Your obviously a attention seeking whore *now shut and let him waste his dedicated life on something he doesn’t Need to do!*
Is he independently wealthy? That’s… quite a vacation.
That’s what I’m wondering. ._.
Fact; he’s not wealthy but In fact lives with his brother or parents
He has to wait a little less than 27 days from now…
He just wants attention. If he pre-ordered it, there’s really no reason to wait around. I could see waiting all day before. I’ll be at Wal-Mart a few hours before it launches as long as the one near me is doing the midnight release. But this is a bit over the top. Doesn’t he have a job? I can’t imagine how he can afford this….
I’m not working currently my Wii U is payed off. I could have done the same thing. However food and sleeping is what I question about this guys plan…
Did nobody know this guy or something? He’s been doing this for a long time, so why is this so surprising?
You can think of it this way: He’s a loser for doing something you think is stupid, or you’re the losers for not being as dedicated as he is.
Or we’re just suffering from mental retardation…
Man i beat this guy in smash bros and he still be talkin shit
by defalut im more of a fan than this guy… I preordered…
waste of fucking time, no one will be lining up for a midnight launch until at least a day or two ahead, and thats the most extreme, hes just gonna be an idiot camped out by hiself for 26 days.
Hes only trying to get articles, if he was a true fan he wouldved preorder. Its obvious that he’s an attention whore.
yeah really eneny one who was a true nintendo fan wloud just pre order by the way eneny one that did not preorder it walmart might still be doing pre orders they were when i logined to this site
Your right that any sane fan would either pre-order to get it instantly or wait 3 days before release but I watched his videos about he was waiting to get the 3ds and the guy is just bloody dedicated to Nintendo that admit it we all wish we could wait in line for a month but we all have work or school to worry about
Yeah I probably do it too if I lived at home, with no job, no life, and my parents paid for all my things :l
there is a chance that he is independently wealthy and doing nothing for a month is well within his reach without affecting his finances.
If he was Couldnt he just pay someone to stand out there for him?
I still believe he’s just an attention whore.
Lol i didnt even pre order mine yet
I didn’t preorder either– don’t have the money. And what money I did have I spent on the new Pokemon games.
This man is nuts. DEKU NUTS!
deku nuts really that still pretty funny
That’s some pure dedication. I remember seeing him all the time on Nintendo product launch day episodes on Nintendo Week. :P
Living the life lol
It’s happening again…Someone wants Nintendo’s money http://www.joystiq.com/2012/10/22/impulse-technology-drops-patent-infringement-suit-against-ninten/
Wow. This guy.
lol why sleep outside for a month when you could get it delivered to you by express mail the day it comes out?
Let him do what he wants. I personally would never do this. I would rather pre-order and get it when I have the time. Being first doesn’t really get you anything, anyways. Nothing is going anywhere.
He gets to spend more time with it than any other consumer on the planet.
Go Ahead and wait in line early…
I took off that day from my job, so I’m just going to stroll on into my job while cutting the entire line 5 mins b4 we open…pick up my wii u and accessories and just leave while waving to the people in linel
That’s where I am going to get mine…at least I might able to see him.
His Facebook profile doesn’t list him as married or in a relationship… weird.
I see what you did there. Being in a relationship only cuts into gaming time. Nintendo can’t allow that. Nintendo fans don’t get to be in relationships otherwise they can’t have world domination.
Am I the only one wondering if the cops or the employees of the store are going to eventually tell him that he can’t camp out there for that long?XD
This is not new the guys is a pure video game junkie. He lives and breaths video game. His technique is simple. He gets there the first day wait in line and when he needs to shower or sleep he calls one of his friends and they replace him until he comes back or another one of his friend takes over. He has been doing that for all major Nintendo events. When the Zelda mini concert they had at the Nintendo World store he was #4 in the line and we chatted for a bit and like I said his a pure Video game junkie but an OK dude. The guy is so well know but Nintendo he has meet Reggie and other folks from NOA several times.
i think this guy has a problom he is going to be one guy that is going to kill every one that he thinks live closer to a house then he is to his so he can be first to play
im exsagrateing he proble slash ther tires
I would have camped outside the manufacturing floor if I had more money xD
First in line, Last to get laid…
Some of us are above primitiv behaviour unfortunately
Let the YouTube videos begin!
I want to line up outside of the store at my eb games too for my Wii U. I wonder if there going to do a midnight release. Good thing its a sunday so I dont have to worry about work.
But seriously that early? How does he have money for this if he is camping for a month?! How can a work place let him off work for that long too?!
And I’m already…not on line. Don’t see a news story about me. xD
is he the worlds worst CAMPER see what i did there
