Japanese Delivery Unboxing
We buy a lot of stuff from japan using the middle-man service provided by Buyee.jp (other services do exist, this is just our favourite).
Remember, if you buy from a different country you *might* be subject to customs charges when it enters your home country. If you’re unlucky you’ll get a pretty vindictive customs agent who checks prices on eBay to calculate costs rather than what you actually paid for the item – so be careful.
Outrun is probably one of the best loved Arcade racers out there. Designed by Yu Suzuki in 1986 it utilised the hardware created for the earlier Hang On and Space Harrier titles.
Because it was an incredibly popular Arcade machine it was ported to many consoles, we take a look at it on:
- Sinclair Spectrum
- Commodore 64
- Commodore Amiga (CDTV)
- Sega Megadrive / Genesis
- Fujitsu FM Towns (Marty 2)
- NEC PC Engine / TurboGrafx
- Sega Dreamcast
- Sony Playstation 2
