So all in all the show itself was decent but the way they handled the Limited edition 20th Anniversary ps4s was a nightmare and left a bitter taste in many peoples mouths.  First off the mislead everyone by stating days before that they would have important information about how to order the anniversary ps4 during the keynotes and yet they didn't say anything at all on how to order it, that itself was a 2 hour sitting.  Then from outside sources rumor was that they would release something on Twitter, which they ended up putting up a statement an hours later saying "they will tweet out a link soon".  Then another 2 hours pass and they finally Tweet the link.  So far they dragged people along all day for about 5 hours.  So if you were lucky enough to hear from someone to go to Twitter you would find the link and it would lead you to a crashing website with error messages out the ahole. 

  I was sitting watching the entire event unfold with a few friends who were sitting beside me with laptops very excited to try and get this because they were die hard ps1 fans from the beginning and waiting for a cool limited edition console to make the plunge into next gen.  So after finally getting their anniversary Ps4's in their shopping carts and all the way to the final stage in checkout with paypal....the site crashes again.  They literally had those ps4's in their shopping carts for about 2 hours since the tweet refreshing furiously and finally they were removed and left out in the cold.  Now, my buddies are so pissed off they are seriously considering not even bothering with ps this gen and just playing PC for 3rd party games and Wii U for exclusives.   Why would Sony want to let so many people down on such a big weekend for them that is suppose to be very special.

I just want to ask.....so they were just going to buy it because it was a limited edition console and only play 3rd party games on it? No exclusives? I am asking because yous aid they are thinking about skipping the PS4 and playing 3rd party games on PC and exclusives on Wii U. Just curious



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...
