View Full Version : Getting a Japanese Xbox 360
05-01-2009, 06:22 AM
I want to play Death Smiles and all the other Cave conversions that are coming out. Raiden Fighters would be nice too. I was thinking I could partially fund this by selling off my LE Border Down, which is a game I do not like all that much. But it goes for a great price on eBay, and I would appreciate some more Cave shmups a lot more.
Any tips on where to get a Japanese Xbox 360? I probably only need an Arcade version, since I'll only be playing shmups, and maybe the occasional English language Asian released RPG. I noticed that Tales of Vesperia has come out as such.

I know a guy in Hong Kong who gets me all my Asian/Japanese imports. He sells me games for around £5 less than Playasia prices, and shipping is usually cheaper too. Anyway, he recently tracked down an Asian (turned out to be Korean actually) Arcade Jasper and I paid a lot less than I would have from the likes of Play Asia.
If you want his details then just let me know :) There was a major shortage of Jaspers throughout Asia until a few weeks ago, so you may need to be quick if you want one ASAP.
FWIW, if it ever goes tits up, he has told me I can ship it to him and he can then take it to the HK 360 service centre to get it fixed. I also have a couple of UK based contacts who do cheap, fast repairs too :)

I would very much like to have his details. Play-Asia prices are a bit steep, but I can't find them cheaper. Although my knowledge on this subject is probably more limited than it was a few years ago, when I was more into all this.
