I love Viral stuff and this is no exception. I like that it’s in Japanese with English subtitles 😛 The next Viral video will be available in a couple weeks. Here is a sneak peak at the next advertisement.
I’m really excited for Tekken 6. I’m not sure if I’ll pick up the PSP version right away. I might if it’s cheap enough. It would be nice to practice on the go 🙂
Finally some details about the wireless arcade stick. It’s not bluetooth for one, so that means a USB dongle which is a little disappointing, but oh well. I’ll be getting some rechargeable batteries for it unless it comes with some. But 40 hours of life is pretty decent.

The box art looks pretty sweet. Glad I’m getting the Limited Edition 🙂
