Interesting sightings
Nintendo Wii console and Nunchucks on display at Yodabashi Camera along with retail package of Wii-mote. Nintendo Wii info plate.
Playstation 3 kiosks with playable Ridge Racer 7 and PS3 game trailers at Yodabashi Camera.
Revoltech Mazinkaiser & Getter 3 on display at Kaiyodo's store.

AsoBitCity started taking preorders for the Nintendo Wii on November 3rd and only those with AsoBitCity member cards can place their preorders. They've now stopped accepting preorders when I went to Akihabara today. If only I had gone to Akihabara yesterday instead of watching the movie premiere of Death Note: The Last Name.

Most major game stores in Akihabara have signs up in their stores announcing that PS3 will be in stock on launch date, November 11th, with AsoBitCity starting to sell at 7am on that day and another store commencing sales at 10am on launch date. I'll try to place my preorders on Japanese sites but if I can't secure an order for one for myself, I guess I'll just have to spend the night in Akihabara waiting in line from the eve of the launch date in hopes of getting one.
