Limited MGS4 PS3 Bundle Un-Buyable At Konami Online?

Update: We've heard that, due to massively crashed servers, Konami has stopped taking pre-orders on this bundle. We don't know if this is temporary or permanent, so stay tuned.

Original Story:

Hardcore MGS followers were probably overjoyed to hear about the "highly limited edition" MGS4 PS3 bundle, even if it was a little pricey and only available online. After all, one can't put a price on such a prized item for an avid collector, right?

Well, maybe Konami Online wasn't prepared for the onslaught of would-be consumers when the bundle went up for sale yesterday. We've been hearing nothing but bad news surrounding this offer - as Kotaku pointed out earlier - and we really don't know if anyone has been able to actually purchase this bundle. First of all, there seems to be a mandatory $500 insurance fee (refundable, but still), and that's not likely to go over well. Furthermore, most shoppers have reported a persistent 503 Error whenever they try to go to the Checkout. In short, trying to buy this "highly limited edition" has been a very trying and frustrating experience for just about everyone. What's the deal, Konami?

Now, because we have no idea how many of these bundles sold (if any), we don't know how much longer they will be offering it. However, due to this major screw-up, we imagine you big-time fans will still have your chance in the coming days, once Konami addresses the issue. If you haven't managed to make it work, keep trying!
