Interesting sightings
Good Smile Company's upcoming Rozen Maiden 1/8 Shinku on display at Kotobukiya's store in Akihabara.

Spotted Playstation 3 for sale at Mandarake's video game shop, Galaxy, in Nakano with 20GB PS3 marked up to 73,500 yen (original retail price: 49,980 yen) and 60GB PS3 marked up to 94,500 yen (original retail price: 59,980 yen). They only have one of each available for sale. I've not seen any store in Akihabara or Nakano that has PS3s for sale except for Galaxy in Nakano. Those units will probably be snatch up soon despite the high markup as it's still cheaper than getting it from Yahoo Japan Auctions or eBay. Thankfully I got my 60GB PS3 at launch date from a home entertainment store in my little countryside town of Tatebayashi, and the best thing is that I only waited in line for 2 hours and 30 minutes! Started lining up from 4:30am on launch date (11 November) and was the 6th person in line. They started handing out reservation tickets at 7am and then we're free to go anywhere until 10am that day to make the purchase. They only have 6 units of each type and I was the last person to get the 60GB PS3. The PS3 launch lineup of games suck so I currently don't have any games to play on my shiny new PS3 except for Ridge Racer 7 and Blast Factor demos. Guess I'll have to stick with playing the game demos and more to be available for download in the near future until a good PS3 title comes out or the price for Resistance: Fall of Man drops to below 4,000 yen. Lowest price I've seen for the game is 4,980 yen in a game shop in Akihabara.
