EDIT: Please don't ask me to send you any games. Thanks.

500¥ ($4 US) has got to be the cheapest price on record for Xbox 360 games.
Games are new, sealed and are USA versions (read: this is not evidence of the Xbox 360 failing in Japan!).

Choose from the following titles:

Kameo
PGR 3
FIFA: Road to the World Cup
Madden 06
King Kong
Tiger Woods 06
Need for Speed Underground
NBA Live 06

They are on the 4th (or 5th, I forget) floor with the import games.
Picked up Kameo, FIFA, King Kong and Madden for myself.

Crap!
I wish I knew someone in Japan who could ship those to me.
Must be a bad sign for the 360 in Japan...

Not really, these are the North American versions of the games which won't work on a Japanese 360.

Man I would buy 20 copies of Maddon 06, even though I hate the game, because it has my favorite feature.

John Madden not talking, because if I need to be told that if the quarterback throws to a receiver, while the reciever is in the end zone, it will be a touchdown. I should not be playing a football game.

I thought the games would work on any 360... If not, why send some to Japan that won't work there?

All those games are region protected.
Just as the USA has import stores that sell Japanese games, Japan has import stores that sell USA and European games.

How much would it be ship some of these to the US? At that price they might still be a good deal even with the shipping. I would love to get all of those actually, at this price. Would anyone be willing to bulk ship me those games? Or at least give me a price quote on the shipping.

King Kong for $5? If shipping would be $10 or less, I'd be all over that.

Nice find, have a few questions.

First, did they have several copies? I live in Iriya and will go there tomorrow to pick up the 3 I dont have already if they had plenty of copies.

Second, where is asobit located in relation to yodobashi or club sega? Just a general description of location would do since I dont recall seeing it in the time Ive spent there.

Thanks in advance,

RuneX

Is there anyone in Japan that could get copies of those? I'd take one of each game, and bulk shipping might not be too bad...

As my PM box fills up, I obviously made a big error in not writing, "Please don't ask me to send you any games".

This isn't your local Toys R Us, where you can walk out with bag full of games as a faceless customer. They know what's up.
I am 6'4" bald whitey in Tokyo. I like to go back to these stores.

Besides, it didn't seem they had that many left in stock.


EDIT: People don't really use addresses in Tokyo. Asobit City is in Akhabara on the main drag. It's on the other side of the street from Club Sega.
You want to go in the one that sells games...on the 4th or 5th floor (the floor that has import games).

Look for the sign that looks like this:

Thanks, I think I know where it is now. I know addresses are not exactly common, which is why I was looking for a reference point. Gonna head up there in a little bit.
