Where do you live? Try Wrexham... It's like retro gaming isn't acknowledged to exist!

Been there when I was in Japan!

Although the post is irrelevant, the first picture is of the shop, of those ruddy Namco Diaramas that I have been unable to buy :(.

It's TINY. Seriously. The shop is over 2 floors and there's enough space for two people to stand face to face, at a push.

Of course, if it's the shop I'm thinking of in Akibahara. It may not be.

Looking at one of those photos there seems to be some UK Master System stuff for sale. Is there much demand out in Japan for UK console and computing stuff considering they get pretty much everything out there?

I think i could bankrupt myself in minutes over there :D

My problem is I never seem to have any money on Sundays and I'm reliant on other people's plans if I want to go anywhere. My family still kick up a hell of a fuss if I want to go somewhere on my own. I'm 28 tomorrow!

The MS did pretty badly in Japan (in fact it only really got a foothold in Europe and South America) so there will be interest from collectors because of that.
