Zettai Zetsumei Grip - New JPN Import

«©NCSX» Irem's Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 3 game shipped for the Playstation Portable last month and Japanese manufacturer MSY has created a special accessory which holds the PSP and prevents it from slipping out of your hands. When playing games such as ZZT3, the excitement level can ramp up which causes sweaty and slippery palms to be the order of the day.

The Zettai Zetsumei Grip holds the PSP in its confines and is designed with a special "cracked asphalt" appearance which mimics the broken city that the game takes place in. The ZZ Grip may also be used as a stand since it has a support on the back which may be used to prop the PSP upright on a tabletop. The Grip may be used with the PSP-2000 and PSP-3000 models.

Revolutionary Road - New Release, In Stock

From the Publisher
Frank and April, a married couple in the 1950s, have always seen themselves as special, different, ready and willing to live their lives based on higher ideals. So, as soon as they move into their new house on Revolutionary Road, they proudly declare their independence from the suburban inertia that surrounds them and determine never to be trapped by the social confines of their era. Yet for all their charm, beauty and irreverence, the Wheelers find themselves becoming exactly what they didn't expect: a good man with a routine job whose nerve has gone missing; a less-than-happy homemaker starving for fulfillment and passion; an American family with lost dreams, like any other.
Driven to change their fates, April hatches an audacious plan to start all over again, to leave the comforts of Connecticut behind for the great unknown of Paris. But when the plan is put in motion, each spouse is pushed to extremes--one to escape whatever the cost, the other to save all that they have, no matter the compromises.
