Non-Japanese gamers, prepare once again to be unbearably jealous of our overseas brethren. What could the tiny country be getting this time that the rest of the world will never touch? Could it be another fighting game or anime series? Or perhaps some unbelievably awesome piece of hardware like a limited edition themed console? This time, it’s the latter. Just take a look at the absolutely stunning PS3 system above.
JRPG fans have no doubt heard about the highly anticipated new Tales game, Tales of Xillia, which will be hitting Japanese store shelves exclusively for the PS3 later this year. The gorgeous themed console above will be available at retail as the same day as the game (September 8th) and will be bundled with the game and priced at the Japanese equivalent of $470. Furthermore, there are also some handsome pre-order bonuses such as figurines of characters from the game. Remember: jealousy is frowned upon, even in situations like this where I’m pretty sure I deserve to be. Tales of Xillia currently has no American release confirmed.
