Check Out the Sad Tale of a PS4 Preorder Failure Caught on a Japanese Video

Early this morning the PS4 went up for preorder in Japan and Sony’s own storefront buckled under pressure, displaying errors and messages inviting users to try at a later time due to heavy traffic, while the console was selling out in minutes across the country.

Here's a cute but sad video from a Japanese gamer telling the sad story of his or her preorder failure. (PS4)

Sony should have relied on Azure cloud technology. Maybe their servers wouldn't have buckled under load?

Maybe your dad should've relied on a condom, then we would have one less stupid troll.

I believe it is a Voiceroid
voice synthesizer sort of thing.
If I am not wrong, it is the voice bank of yuzuki yukari V3
rottencheese  +   854d ago
why the downvote? I only suggested that it may be a voiceroid because of the arrangement of the voice samples.

Edit: there is also a possibility for it to be some other voicebank(or utau) due to the high pitch.

His or her pre-order failure? well if it's a guy he must have inhaled a load of helium.

EDIT: Apparently, it could be a synthesised voice. Oookay.

they could always go to the xbone preorder kiosk. hahaha

For sure there are NO problems with preorder stock, but who would want to place a wager on suspect hardware? Not me and neither would they easilly in Japan!

I would love to know what the Japan preorder no's would be for the eXBn0ne. I need a good laugh!
