Masaya Nakamura, the ‘Father of Pac-Man' has passed away.
We are giving our condolences to his family, friends and associates in Namco, He has given us the most amazing games to play, In the late 1970s and early 80s, they had the most awesome arcades, like Galaxian, Galaga, Pole Position, and Xevious. However, it was Pac-Man that wasn’t only the biggest Namco hit of that era, but also of the most important Japanese video games ever made. below you find the Xbox360 which was given away during a Pac-Man Tournament in 2007. Even today Pac-Man tournaments are still being held.
It's weekend! and that means we are showing here something very special. Remember the NES Samurai console from India? Well, this is the same console but with the box! A fan made this picture for us and even we had never seen the box before. Looks pretty epic!
a Massive Xbox collector is helping us out with our database! So far we have added 20 more Xbox 360 consoles to the site and counting!! the pictures he took for us are perfect as well. Check out this example, it's the Batman Arkham City Edition! Four were given away as gifts to people in the video game industry. One was raffled away by Rocksteady's and the remaining were raffled away at PAX Prime 2011.
This is a PlayStation Controller, a Memory Card and a console carrying bag.. all in one package! Sold in France only. According to the price tag on the bottom its high likely was 1290 'franc' (before the Euro) which is around 200 dollars!!
This Sega 32X box is high likely the best looking box there is! Knuckles is the star on this one, he is printed on all sides and also it has the game of Knuckles' Chaotix included, hes so badass that Knuckles is holding the 'X' with his rings, it's a cool small detail.
We have added 3 new discovered consoles that there given away at the PAX 2008 (Penny Arcade Expo) a Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3 and an Xbox 360! So far we can confirm that 1 of each are given away but we think that around 5 where given away if we compare it with other consoles that where given away there
We have added a new console to the site! This is a very special one!
This Xbox One Kinect Sports Rivals console was never for sale, never able to win, or gave away.

We where actually posting some more Xbox stuff but we had something in between we have not seen before We will post it monday we promise =) ! We have added a new Nintendo Entertainment System to the site! The Samurai Electronic TV Game!
At first we thought this was a Famiclone, but nope! We spoke with the owner, This system was only available in India! because of trade laws, In India before the 90s any international company would have to share their company name with an Indian company Just like Hyundai (Nintendo) and Samsung (Sega)
The owner confirmed that the power supply/controllers and the circuit board where originally from the original NES.
We have added another PlayStation 4 on our site! The Deus Ex Mankind Divided edition!
This was an Australian console, published by Sony on there Facebook! The winner will get this system and the collector's edition of Deus Ex Mankind Divided.
2 Days ago we said that we where on a business trip, we went to our friend Pokemaniak, the owner of more then 100 Pokemon Consoles complete in box He is also the owner of the famous Trozei and Corocoro 3DS systems. We went there to discuss some new variations and to take pictures for our new Collectors Gallery (which will be online very soon)! See this picture below for the consoles and follow his page on Facebook page!
In our PlayStation 4 variation page, we don`t use the variations with just the harddrive plates, (Just like the normal *New* 3DS Faceplate bundles) The reason is that you can buy those plates seperately in stores and use it on your own PlayStation or other console to look like it's a limited variant! This is not our way, in some bundles these plates are included, Japan loves them. Below is a picture with all the bundles that PS4 had to offer in japan. these where bundled with the console. There are high likely mising a few, this is because there is a new faceplate coming out almost every single week.
During a business meeting (will tell more about the trip later on) we discovered 3 new GameBoy variats in some old Japanese megazines and 3 more GameBoy Color systems that we know for sure how many are made!
Below is a collage of all the pictures that we have discovered! On the Nintendo page, we have more details about where they come from and with high quality pictures!
