DS Card Case 16 - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» We have a lot of Nintendo DS game cards that have been accumulated over the past few years. Their numbers tend to grow quickly week after week and month after month as hundreds of games pass through our fingers every year. All those games need to be stored and we have a good shelving system for archiving everything. For day to day storage however, one nifty bit of kit that Hori released last year is convenient for holding NDS game cards that are still "active" in our playing schedule.

The DS Card Case 16 was originally released in the summer of 2008 in three colors and holds up to sixteen game cards on two double-sided plastic inserts. The inserts are sandwiched together like the pages of a book and may be flipped open like a mini book. Hori has announced two new color variants (Blue and Lime-Green) which are scheduled to ship on May 21 and preorders are welcome today. Pricing is set at ¥760 or US$8.

General Updates

BLU Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete Update
A second largish shipment of FFVII AC Complete LE and "Cloud Black" bundles made it to UPS' distribution hub in Kentucky last night at 2:02AM but we don't see a dispatch scan out of Kentucky as of this morning. The shipment may still be delivered today after 2PM EST but that doesn't leave us with a lot of time to process/pack/ship a few hundred packages within a 2-3 hour time window. We'll do our best to get everything out though.
We'll post some more news later today to update the delivery status but if the shipment doesn't arrive on time, please note that it would be re-scheduled for Monday since it's unlikely that they'd try to make a delivery attempt on Saturday. New orders are welcome to ship on Monday.
PS3 Playstation Network Tickets Restocked
JPY3000 and JPY5000 tickets were restocked yesterday but the JPY3000s are already all gone. We still have JPY5000s for fulfillment today. Additional supplies of the JPY3000 should arrive in the next 2-3 days. The Hong Kong PSN tickets in HK$150 denominations are also in stock.

PC-Engine GT Com Cable - Clearance

NCS Sale Offering: April 17, 2009
Original Release in Japan: December 01, 1990

New and factory boxed PC-Engine GT Com Cable which links up two PC-Engine GT handhelds to each other. The packaging for our remaining inventory is in shoddy shape (see photos) but the cables inside are brand new, clean, and fresh. We also located some new PC-Engine GT units in our old stock but we think we're going to keep them instead of listing the units for sale. We might get nostalgic one of these days and actually want to play our collection of PC-Engine HuCARDS instead of flipping through them like baseball cards. «Photo Gallery»
