    Finally moving over to coming week, we are expecting once again a couple of extremely interesting titles, majorly for Gamecube™ and PlayStation2™:

    Starting with Gamecube™ we are expecting our probably hottest import title in this year. Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 2, Tomy's Anime fighting sequel appears to be outselling our currently hottest title from this year, which still is Konami's Winning Eleven 7 for PS2™. We have made sure to make sufficient reservations with various vendors to assure a smooth process of all preorders.

    Additionally interesting for Gamecube™ appears to be Hudson Selection Vol. 3: PC Genjin (a PC-Engine remake from Hudson's famous platform title "Bonk") as well as Namco's RPG Baten Kaitos.

    Moving over to PlayStation2™, the hottest items will be all around Sony's racer Gran Turismo 4 Prologue. Including the low priced game itself, we are expecting the following hardware all around the game:

  • Gran Turismo 4 Prologue
  • Gran Turismo 4 Prologue + GT Force PRO
  • PlayStation2 Racing Pack Ceramic White (Japanese version)
  • Dual Shock 2 Controller - ceramic white
  • Memory Card 8MB Premium Series - Gran Turismo 4 Prologue
  • Memory Card 8MB - ceramic white
  • Vertical Stand - ceramic white


    Everyone expecting the slightly lower priced Asian version PlayStation2 Racing Pack Ceramic White, it's confirmed for 2 weeks later on December 18th.

    Additionally interesting for PS2™ will be Hudson Selection Vol. 3: PC Genjin as well as another limited edition PS2™ console, the PlayStation2 Gundam AEUG Gold Pack.
