Wow. This is basically everything you could ask for, all the way down to hopefully side loading extra games. Very temped this time.

Ordered the cab and controllers. Hoping the shipping on that deluxe bundle comes down so I can switch.

I’m hoping they do a Windy 2 mini then I can recreate a mini version of my house. Maybe I should buy a dolls house for them...

Edit: where do those NAC speaker pods come from in that video above?!
God I hope this Xenepp made Mame board is good.

The full shebang pack costs about 8,000 JPY more than the sum of the console and all three controllers.

What am I missing? What's the CD?

It seems like some of them have incorrect pricing. The cab and spinner controller has $200 shipping on it, but the cab alone has $27 shipping. :eh:

There's a strategy guide that doesn't appear separately?

Looks like it’s a 3-4 CD soundtrack bundle, a ‘guide’ and 50 mini marquees

I've done the maths on the deluxe version. £58 for the soundtracks, book and marquees would be fine by me, but for some reason, shipping is £113 more than buying the cab and 3 controllers. I hope that changes, but I think the issue is they've underestimated the separates. They usually ship by DHL and 3,860 Yen is a bit of a bargain there.

Someone on ResetEra emailed Amazon about the weird costly shipping and it's because they're currently estimating it via volume, or something like that. The response said if (probably when) the shipping cost comes down nearer to release, they'd refund the difference. Quite a lot to plonk down today though.
