NEWS General Updates

Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep PSP Bundle
Due to a shipping delay from Japan, please note that preorders for the Kingdom Hearts PSP Bundles will not ship out from NCS until Wednesday of this week. Square's decision to release the game over the weekend in Japan instead of the usual Thursday release provided some nice logistical problems for exporters which caused this delay.
Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Game - Restock on Wednesday
Kingdom Hearts BBS is currently sold out and orders that were placed since January 7 will ship this Wednesday when the next batch of shipments arrive. The recent spate of orders for the game was an unexpected development since early preorder volume was pretty good which proceeded to peter out by the time December rolled around. The market is fickle.
