Yeah, I think you'll find there'll be more stuff than you'll have space and money for. I remember Artemio saying the same thing happened to him on his first trip. I had several trips to spread my stuff out on, but some of the boxes for these things are quite big and take up a shitload of space. Best advice -- take an empty suitcase going over!

You can imagine taking the cases when boarding the plane, if security wanna check the case out, they'll be rather surprised, won't they? Haha.

Yes.. I had a hard time during the later days, when I passed from the "But it, common-- BUY IT!" to the "It won't fit in there, and customs... " states. I'll see if I find that pic of my suitcase just before leaving Tokyo at home...

Luckily I never got my bags checked when I went through customs in those days. :)

I remember you showing me that photo. I had a look but couldn't find it anywhere.

I'm buying a new one before I leave. There's no chance I'd be able to take what I've bought in my original bags (considering they were almost full already, and I've bought a 60gig PS3 while I've been here). Decent sized suitcases are incredibly expensive over here, though. I've seen ones in Umeda's Yodobashi Camera for around ¥11,500, and that's the cheap ones!

I'm buying all sorts of crap here. I just bought a Pants Pankuro DVD today, under the fear that I might miss it when I get back home. I've bought some stuff that's very accessable in the UK, just because of cheap prices (¥1,500 Die Hard Boxset, ¥1,000 Live Doors CD, etc.). It's really wasting far too much of my space, though. I don't want to have to get rid of any boxes, but I might have to. :(

I'm planning to look in every single shop in Den Den Town that sells games on Thursday for that PlayStation Policenauts. It's a real insult to find out it was developed by Konami's Osaka division, and you can't find it anywhere in town! I've seen two copies of MG2:SS and had no luck at all with PS1 Policenauts!

I got a boxed PlayStation mouse for ¥480 in Sofmap the other day... still no PlayStation Policenauts.
I feel like I've tried everywhere, but I always manage to find somewhere more desperate and hopeless (record shops, book shops, a charity shop...). I'll get my copy either way (the things pop up on eBay the whole time), but it would be nice to pay a reasonable price for it.

I found a copy for myself in A-Too last night for ¥1,800. Original release, too! I'll check again incase they've re-stocked it.

No sign of the Book or Best editions? Weird, since they're newer releases of the game. :???:

Good to hear you finally obtained a copy, though.

I thought it was odd, too. Not that I'm complaining or anything.

I found and bought another copy. It was ¥1,880. I'll tell you how much the postage costs and send it next week (granted, you'll have to give me your address). I'm buying some MGS2 Trading Arts (they're cheap in Den Den Town) so if I get any duplicates, I might be able to give you a bonus, for having worried you.

I THINK that one comes with the light gun...but it's really hard to tell from the description...maybe that could explain the extremely high price.
