Console Kuro (Black) - Japan Import Preorder

©NCSX» The Wii has dominated the latest generation of gaming consoles for a couple of years now and millions of players own a basic white Wii in their living rooms. NCS has three of them which are used in heavy rotation throughout the year. In this day and age of multiple choices and variants, it's a little hard to believe that the Wii has only been available in white. That is, until now. Nintendo announced the Black Wii recently and Japanese distributors opened up preorders last night.

The Black Wii features a glossy patina that'll probably look doubly cool when the lights are low. Not so low that you can't see anything but "dusky" so that some details and gloss can still be discerned. Preorders are welcome to ship on August 1, 2009 at US$319.90 from NCS.

Monster Hunter 3-tri Black CCP Pack - Japan Import Preorder

©NCSX» We got a little taste of Monster Hunter 3-tri in the playable preview that was included with every copy of Monster Hunter G for the Wii. The demo included two missions which gave players a chance to test the Remote controls and experience wholesale monster slaughter. When the full proper game gets released in August, players create a monster hunter and outfit him/her with weapons and tackle missions which invariably involve monster hunting. Different weapons featured in the game include swords, gun-bows, axes, hammers, and more. In addition to killing all manner of monsters on land, players will also get to dive underwater and kill monsters in the murky depths where serpentine creatures dwell. The special edition of Monster Hunter 3-tri will include a bonus Classic Controller Pro in black which looks like a smaller and cuter version of Sony's Dual Shock controller.

Please note that Japanese distributors included a stipulation in their preorder offer which states that preorders may exceed Capcom's initial production of the game. Preorders for the Japanese Wii Monster Hunter 3 Tri Classic Controller Pro Black Pack are welcome to ship on August 1, 2009

Nintendo DSi Red - Japan Import Preorder

©NCSX» Nintendo has started preorders for a red rendition of the Japanese Nintendo DSi which ships next month. If we were asked to describe the red color on the DSi, we'd probably have to use words like "flame," "cherry," "rouge," and maybe even "devil" to indicate just how red it is. The DSi is almost blazing and it's so red that it can potentially catch the eye of vandals and vagabonds who are generally attracted to crimson things.
Preorders for the NDSi Red are welcome to ship on July 11, 2009 at JPY18,000 or US$229.90 from NCS. Please note that Japanese NDSi handhelds can only display Japanese menus and can only download network content from the Japanese Nintendo online service.

Inkheart - New Domestic Release, Ships in 24 Hours

From the Publisher
Cornelia Funke’s best-selling novel, INKHEART, comes to life in director Iain Softley’s (THE SKELETON KEY, THE WINGS OF THE DOVE) feature-film adaptation of the same name. For 12 years, bookbinder Mo (Brendan Fraser) and his daughter, Meggie (Eliza Hope Bennett), have been traveling the world, poking around secondhand bookstores. Meggie correctly assumes that her father is looking for her mother, Resa (Sienna Guillory), who disappeared without a trace.

What Meggie doesn’t know is that Mo is a Silvertongue, and when he reads a story aloud, the details and characters come to vivid life. But when a character comes out of a book, someone has to go back in, and Mo is searching a copy of the book, titled "Inkheart," into which Resa literally disappeared. When Mo read the story aloud, unaware of his powers, she was sucked into the story, and the fantastical novel’s villainous characters were released. Now, Mo and Meggie have to keep evil Capricorn and his henchmen from realizing their diabolical plot, and send everyone back where they belong.

INKHEART is awash with colorful details. Capricorn has had to make do with a stuttering Silvertongue who delivers characters that are half-read: text from the book is tattooed on their faces, or they suffer some other malady, emerging from the book mute or with an odd physical feature. Paul Bettany is engaging as Dustfinger, a character who desperately wants to be read back into "Inkheart" and return to his family, portrayed by Bettany’s real-life love, Jennifer Connelly, in a miss-her-if-you-blink performance. Helen Mirren is good fun as eccentric, feisty bibliophile Aunt Elinor, and Jim Broadbent appears as the novel’s author, who is enthralled by the possibilities of Mo’s gift.

Inkheart (Blu-Ray) is in stock and ships within 24 hours.
