From the publisher: Step into the most richly detailed and vibrant game world ever created. The Elder Scrolls® IV: Oblivion™ is the latest chapter in the epic and highly successful saga from Bethesda Softworks. Oblivion is the sequel to the best-selling, award-winning role-playing game (RPG) The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind®, named 2002 RPG and Game of the Year for Xbox®. Oblivion is another leap forward in role-playing with its combination of freeform gameplay and cutting-edge graphics.

An initial shipment of the Xbox360™ RPG The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has been arrived yesterday and early preorders have been dispatched. Remaining preorders are expected to ship on Monday. As most of our Asian Xbox360™ games, the title is priced at US$ 39.90 only. This game is NTSC/J encoded and only suitable to play on Japanese/Asian Xbox360™ consoles.


Game features:

  • Good and evil: Create and play any character you can imagine, from noble warrior to sinister assassin to wizened sorcerer.
  • Melee and magic: An all-new combat and magic system brings first person role-playing to a new level of intensity where you feel every blow.
  • Stunning graphics: Pixel-shader effects and high-definition televisions are fully supported to create unprecedented visuals, including lifelike towns, dungeons, and the most realistic forests ever created in a game.
  • Radiant A.I.: This groundbreaking artificial intelligence system gives characters full round-the-clock schedules and the ability to make their own choices based on the world around them.
  • Realistic characters: The game features over 1,000 non-player characters who come to life like never before with facial animations, lip-synching, and full speech.
  • Enormous environments: With its non-linear game play, the huge world of Oblivion is open for you to explore at your own pace, and shorter quests such as fighting bandits, mixing potions, creating magic items, and persuading friends keep the challenges coming.


From the publisher: In Kingdom Hearts II, players travel through the worlds of Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Mulan, Pirates of the Caribbean, Steamboat Willie and Tron as well as revisit worlds from the original, including Aladdin, Disney Castle, Hercules, The Little Mermaid, Winnie the Pooh and Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. The game features more than 100 Disney characters, and also introduces new, original characters such as Roxas, members of Organization XIII and the Nobodies, all designed by Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura, director and character designer of the Kingdom Hearts series.

Kingdom Hearts II features a new and improved real-time battle system which provides an increased selection of commands, such as performing special attacks and cooperative attacks with members of your party, adding strategy to the gameplay. Players can also perform the "Drive" to transform main character Sora into his various forms, altering his skills and abilities. Examples include the Brave Form, where Sora absorbs the power of Goofy allowing him to use two Keyblades; the Wisdom Form, where Sora absorbs the power of Donald allowing him to increase his magic power; and the Master Form, where Sora absorbs the power of both Donald and Goofy and increases both his attack and magic powers. These new features bring additional challenges and excitement to the players and further enhance gameplay.


Don't miss out on one of the most beautiful and fascinating PlayStation2™ games ever. Kingdom Hearts II is shipping today as US release version at US$ 59.90. Today's shipment will cover around 60% of all preorders. More supply is confirmed to arrive throughout next week to fill all remaining orders as well as for new orders alike.

From the manufacturer: Transfer Kit for Xbox360™ allows you to transfer data from your Xbox360™ memory cards to your PC. By using your PC's storage capacity to hold almost unlimited back-up 'images' of your Xbox360™ memory cards, you can archive and restore them at any time – you need never be short of save space again.

  • Back Up...
    Backing up your memory card couldn't be simpler. Using your Transfer Kit PC application and USB dock, you can save the entire contents of your XB360™ memory card to your computer's hard drive as an 'image' file. Each image file automatically logs the time and date of backup, and you can add your own descriptions and file names, so you always know what's where.

  • Restore...
    It's just as simple to restore an image file to your memory card too. Again using the PC application, just click on the 'Hard Drive' blade and you're shown a list of backed-up memory card images, replete with the date and time at which they were saved and the name and description entered when you backed up. Just plug in your USB dock and an XB360™ memory card, and you can restore the image file to the card and use the saves in your console once more.

  • Online
    When you've archived your memory card, you can email the backed-up image to your friends and share your saves with friends from all over the world. As long as the save or downloaded file is not locked to your own console or Xbox™ Live account, they can then use their own Transfer Kit to unpack it onto a memory card and use it themselves.


    Developed by Datel, the Transfer Kit suitable for Xbox360™ is in stock today, available at US$ 14.90 only.



    The Breath of Fire Sound Track Special Box is dedicated to all fans of Capcom's RPG series "Breath of Fire".

A total of 11 discs are bundled with the booklet in a high quality box set. The product is strongly limited to 2,000pcs only and surely not to be missed by any fan of the series...
