PSN Card for Hong Kong Playstation Store

International players are limited in the ways they can purchase content from the Hong Kong Playstation Network. Credit cards issued in North America, Europe, etc can't be used since the PSN billing system only authorizes Hong Kong territory credit cards. To help gamers get access to that "exclusive" content, NCS imports a supply of Playstation Network Cards valued at HK$200 today. We're supplying them for US$36.50. Our vendors in Hong Kong don't have access to the tickets at wholesale and had to pay retail and tacked on their mandatory handling charges to obtain them for us. Think of it as a videogame vigorish that's built into the price.

Orders for the PSN cards will be fulfilled digitally. Upon your purchase, an image scan of the 12-digit alphanumeric code will be emailed to you.

Please ignore the shipping charge during checkout since we cannot edit the online shopping cart to not charge a shipping fee for an item. Our shop does not process transactions in realtime and you will only be charged the fee of $36.50.

CGC 1/6 Scale Poison Statue

In the original Japanese Final Fight game, three heroes named Cody, Guy, and Haggar went on a mission to rescue Haggar's daughter Jessica from the Mad Gear gang. There were memorable enemies in the game including Rolento, Sodom, and of course, Poison and Roxy. P&R were biker chicks who wore short shorts and bikinis... in the hood. Poison was memorable for her hot pink hair and acrobatic kicks where she somersaulted and smacked Cody and company around.

Masauzi Yoshizawa of REFLECT apparently remembers Poison well because she was available as a garage kit earlier this year but a finished PVC figure version of Poison is scheduled to ship in November 2007 at JPY7140 or US$68 from NCS. Preorders are welcome.

Satsuriku no Django 1/8 Scale Donne Anonime

If you suffer from the little known disease "I-stare-at-cowgirls-with-boobies-and-guns-all-day-itis," Alter has the cure. Originally announced a couple of months ago, preorders have been opened for a 1/8 scale Donne Anonime (yes, that's her real name) figure where the blonde cowgirl stands on top of a unique pedestal with one of her pink-booted legs. Donne is a new character from a Japanese PC adult game called Satsuriku no Django where she engages in intrigue and action with other big-bosomed cowgirls and assorted rustlers. Donne's color-scheme is black, white, and pink - from head-on, she looks like a bird in flight. Donne carries two guns and one of them contains 20 barrels arranged into two concentric circles. That's some serious hardware for a hardcore cowpoke.
Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late November 2007 at JPY7140 or US$68 from NCS

Juicy Honey SE Sora Aoi Collection Cards v2

Sora Aoi (aka Sola Aoi) made her JAV debut in 2002 and quickly took the adult video scene by storm. With her fresh face and voluptuous bosom, Sora starred in over 50 movies for the production houses Alice Japan and Samantha between her debut and her contract expiration in late 2004. Sora went on to star in a dozen or so movies for the S1 production company between 2005 and 2007.

In Japan, adult actresses are generally accepted by the mainstream public and some of the more popular JAV idols gain an entry into acting on television shows thanks to their appeal. Sora made this transition although she still performs in JAV movies released in 2007. She also models for photobooks and of course, the Juicy Honey series. The first Juicy Honey SE Sora Aoi Collection was released on March 25, 2006 and sold out quickly. The second Sora Aoi Collection is scheduled to ship on November 23, 2007 and preorders are welcome today.

According to the product solicitation, every factory box includes at least 1 special card such as a bra hook card, an underwear card, or an autograph cards. Some boxes will contain 2 special cards. The new collection contains a standard set of 72 cards and 118 special cards which are scattered throughout the boxes in random assortments for fans to ferret out. Each factory box contains 12 packs and each pack holds 7 cards for a total of 96 cards per box. Preorders are available on our shop at US$58 per factory box. Due to the way our Japanese suppliers handle this product, please be advised that any "special" box cards will probably not be included since we've never received them in our other Juicy Honey TRC shipments.

Tank Beat 2 [NDS]

After playing and peddling the original Tank Beat when it was released last year, we didn't think a Tank Beat 2 would be necessary for a generally disinterested market. But it's on the way even if no one's clamoring. Milestone has started preorders for the sequel to the game which is scheduled to ship on November 29, 2007.
The preorder details mention that World War II campaigns across Europe and Africa will be featured in Tank Beat 2 and over 60 different tanks will roll on their virtual treads as they head for war. Wi-Fi play is available where teams of tank drivers collaborate or compete against each other.

Pia Carrot e Youkoso!! G.O. Summer Fair

Originally released on the Japanese PC in February of 2006, Piacci has designated the PS2 as the next recipient of their latest waitress interaction adventure. For the uninitiated, the Pia Carrot series began on the PC and PC-FX console in 1997 where gamers played the part of a worker at poppy's Pia Carrot restaurant and interacted with the wait staff.

Similar to previous games in the Pia Carrot series, players associate with 15 waitresses who work in the Pia Carrot establishment under the auspices of the Summer Fair season. The PS2 version of the game features a new scenario written especially for the console conversion and updated CG scenes to view. A special fan disc will also be included as an added bonus for first production buyers. Pricing is set at JPY7200 or US$65 from NCS. Preorders are welcome to ship on November 29, 2007.

Along with the regular edition of the game, a limited edition of
Pia Carrot e Youkoso!! G.O. Summer Fair will also be released on Nov. 29 which includes a drama CD and an art booklet at JPY8800. Preorders are welcome to ship on November 29.
