Anyone know the best place to go to find a Japanese Dreamcast in Tokyo? I've seen plenty of good deals on games, but I'm having a hard time finding a cheap system. I live in Nerima, but even with a couple trips to Akihabara, I haven't seen any below about 6,000 yen (~$60). I went to a Book Off near my house, but they hardly had any games; where are the big Book Offs? My Japanese isn't good enough to navigate the website. Where should I look for a DC?

Did you check Super Potato in Akiba? I'm sure they have a ton...although I don't know the price.

Yeah, they have them, they're just pretty expensive (like $60-80). I was hoping for something cheaper.

If you know anyone who speaks Japanese and will let you use their credit card, by far the best way to get DC stuff is Yahoo Auctions. I paid ¥3000 for a set of two DCs, two guns, three controllers, four memory cards, two rumble packs, Crazy Taxi, Sonic, Space Channel 5, and a dozen other games.


Finding used DC hardware in shops can be very expensive, I think because of the law passed last year banning the sale of used electronics with internal power supplies, unless they are inspected and given a stamp of approval.
