Collectors Are Stripping Japan's Rare-Game Paradise Bare

A visit to the delightfully named Super Potato (mascot: a potato with a face), one of the district’s most well-stocked and delightfully decorated classic game emporiums, turned up many empty shelves. In particular, the growing popularity of the TurboGrafx-16, known in Japan as the PC Engine, has virtually cleared out that section of the store.

I would love to visit Akihabara one day to experience the place myself.
