    JPY 59,800

      60k isn't a bad price, but weren't they already struggling to supply the western market due to high demand?

              Commonly referred to as South Korea. If you look for "Republic of Korea" on Wikipedia, it redirects to South Korea.

                Same with Taiwan, its official name is Republic of China or ROC.

                At any rate, when do we get them in Australia!?!? Want to get my 5yr old son one for his Lego games and Sonic collection!
