People will do some crazy things to get the latest game consoles. That is not just limited to any country. Folks around the world all go nuts at launches. On February 22 Sony launched the PlayStation 4 in Japan. This is the first time that a gaming console was launched in its home country last. The launch came after the PS4’s debut in the US and European markets.
Japanese folks who were hoping to be the first to get Sony’s next-gen console lined up at the Sony Building, located within the posh Ginza district of Tokyo, as much as two days before the launch date. Ryotaro Takanashi, an 18-year-old college student, waited for two nights in the winter cold to be the first in the group to get his PS4. “It felt so long. I couldn’t wait,” Takanashi said while he was in line with two friends.
I’m not sure how cold it gets there, but I would rather be warm and play my PS3, knowing I can get the console later. I guess it gives geeks some exercise and a reason to get out of the house though.
