DS TV Tuner Breaks

Today may seem like just Thursday to you, but to Japan, it was the day pre-orders started for Nintendo's 1seg DS tuner peripheral. The peripheral, which makes the DS capable of receiving 1seg digital television broadcasts, is being sold exclusively through Nintendo's e-commerce site.

Based on a report from Sankei News, one sales source may not be enough for the item. The news site reports that the start of pre-orders caused such a rush that Nintendo's servers were overloaded and people were left unable to connect.

The story is too old to be commented.
