General Updates

BLU Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Blu-Ray
NCS expects the Japanese FFVII Advent Children Complete Blu-Ray + Final Fantasy XIII Demo in 2 weeks along with the FFXIII Cloud Black PS3 bundle. All of our shipments should be in by April 16 but we'll update accordingly if there are any delays.

ETC Sale of the Week Preview
We probably be posting up new Sega Saturn Fighting Commander SS joypads from Hori for next week's sale. They're about fifteen years old but are in new and factory boxed condition. Pricing will probably be about the same as the PC-Engine Blasters from this week.
The alternate item we're thinking about posting are Famicom Controllers from Bandai that are new, boxed, and in factory fresh condition. We'll figure out the preferred selection, take the usual photos over the weekend, and post up the sale item on Monday.
