    It was one of my favorite sites to buy from for on retro imports video games.Last time i bought from them it was in the summer for batman,megdrive version of the game.Going back to october it seems they have completely shutdown and there domain is up for sale now.Does any body know what happen to them ? I know japan was hit by a tsunami around that time.

    oh man that sucks. i didnt order from them often but it was the first place i ordered any imports from, and it was a doozy.

    a quick whois.net search turns up this info:

    i am wondering if its a case of expired domain name squatting, might not have renewed in time and some one swooped in and is holding it ransom.
    i've seen it before

    About the same i haven't bought from them to often as of late either.Some times at least i all ways fond better deals at jgs for imports then on ebay.Now there out of business and that makes buying imports for older consoles a little more tricky for me.
