Metal Gear Rising Exclusive Japanese Editions

Hello gamers!
Did you play the hottest Japanese game of the week, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance yet?

The latest title of the acclaimed Metal Gear series featuring Raiden has already sold 336,000 copies in a week since its release on February 21st, ranking as the best-selling game of the week! (*the number includes sales in Japan only) 

This game differs from previous Metal Gear titles in its more action-focused, dynamic gameplay, instead of classic Metal Gear-style stealth actions.

You can get Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance worldwide,
but Japanese versions have their own exclusive items to come with limited editions.
There are several different types of packages though, which, if you don't know, you could easily buy the wrong editions.

So I thought I could do a simple overview of different packages to help you get the right thing!

1. Metal Gear Rising - Premium Package
Metal Gear Rising Premium Package

What's in this package:
- Metal Gear Rising Revengeance game software
- Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Original Soundtrack with a steel case
- Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Art Book by Yoji Shinkawa
- Two magnetic Dwarf Gekko Figures that you can split and attach (so to simulate a  Gekko sliced in half by Raiden's zandatsu action!)
- DLC code for Raiden's custom costume "Cyborg Ninja"

2. Metal Gear Rising Premium Package Konami Style Edition

Metal Gear Rising Konami Style

What's in this package:
- Everything in the above Premium Package
- Full-body Raiden Play-Arts figurine (White Armor version, which is different coloring from regular Play-Arts Raiden figurine)

3. Metal Gear Rising Zandatsu Package (PS3)

What's in this package:
- Custom model PlayStation3 console with original Metal Gear Rising design (HDD: 250GB)
- Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance game software
- DLC code for Raiden's custom costume "Cyborg Nninja"

Now, those are the three main special editions you can get.
There are also Amazon editions, GEO editions, Tsutaya editions, etc. with DLC codes for different custom costumes and cards for Social Ops mode. 

Also, this is not an actual game package, but I thought it looks pretty neat... 

Seiko's WIRED x Metal Gear Rising Limited Edition Watch

What comes with this product:
- A WIRED (part of SEIKO) brand watch with original Raiden design (Only 1,000 watches were made!). 
- A metal plate with an illustration by Yosuke Shinkawa.
*The character actually wears this watch in the game!

If you have any questions about the packages, we can help you figure it out. 
Otherwise, have fun with the game!

Robot AutoMee S Cleans Your Smartphone!

If you are like me, who's too lazy to carry around smartphone cleaner, why don't you get AutoMee S so we can have more fun cleaning our phones?

Takara Tomy's new gadget AutoMee S is a handy little robot that helps you clean smartphone/tablet surfaces you wish.

This palm-sized little buddy, ran by a single AA battery, automatically slides and moves around on dirty displays and cleans it as it goes. And it's smart enough to find edges so you don't have to worry about it falling off. It's essentially a mini-Roomba for smartphones and tablets.

Now you can just sit back and relax, while the robot is doing its job!
For other color options (pink, white, blue), see here.
