General Updates

Import Shipments Delayed
Due to what we can only assume to be crushing holiday shipping volumes, some of our Japanese import shipments have been re-scheduled until tomorrow. All preorders for PS3 Armored Core 4, PS3 Sonic the Hedgehog, PS2 Seiken Densetsu 4, and X360 Sonic the Hedgehog will ship tomorrow. Playstation 3 Official S-Video cables are also scheduled to arrive on Friday.

The remainder of this week's imports such the PSP Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops Bundle are scheduled to arrive on Tuesday of next week due to late release in Japan and the Christmas holiday on Monday.
BD Blu-Ray Remotes
Another batch of PS3 remotes arrived today and all backorders placed prior to Dec 21, 2006 at 05:31AM EST will ship this afternoon. New orders placed after that date and time are expected to ship on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Since the USA version of the Blu-Ray Remote is expected to arrive in mid-late January 2007, we'll likely stop stocking the Japanese version after next week and after all demand has been filled.
Parappa the Rapper PSP Pouches
Two Parappa pouches that were released in Japan last week will arrive tomorrow. PJ Berri sleeps like a log on one of them and Parappa lounges on the other. Similar to the LocoRoco pouch from Sony, the Parappa pouches follow the slim design of the standard PSP pouch included with the Japanese Value Packs. We'll post photos on tomorrow's update.
Japanese Wii Accessories Restock
Classic controllers are available for US$29 and the Nunchuk is on stock again at US$35. Pricing for Japanese Wii consoles are expected to drop to US$345 next week after the holiday rush.
