Judge Magister Gabranth’s helmet costs over a grand

By Spencer . September 15, 2008 . 2:59pm

True to life size Final Fantasy XII armor is expensive. The average rat hunter in Rabanastre can’t plunk down $1099 plus shipping and handling for a 1:1 scale Judge Magister Gabranth helmet. The Archadian empire is obviously loaded and if you are too you can pick up this collectable. The price easily eclipses all of […]

Naruto and his shadow clones get a price break

By Spencer . September 9, 2008 . 8:48pm

For one week Play-Asia is dropping the price of Naruto Shippuuden: Dairansen! Kage Bunsen Emaki down to $19.90. Tomy released the game this past February and since it has Shippuuden characters I wouldn’t expect it to appear in North America any time soon. Unlike Tomy’s many other Naruto games Naruto Shippuuden: Dairansen! Kage Bunsen Emaki […]

Declining dollar makes importing (relatively) cheaper

By Spencer . March 21, 2008 . 8:13am

Strange, but true fact: If you live in the USA importing games from Play-Asia is actually cheaper than buying them in Japan, if you include currency exchange. It’s been a long time coming, but the Yen to US dollar exchange rate has dipped below the comforting 100 yen for $1 ratio since last week.   […]

I think we mentioned how Play-Asia is stepping into the publishing biz under the moniker eastasiasoft. Their first project is Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer, a shmup built for PCs sold in some kind of mystery bundle package for fifty smackers.
