Monster Hunter 3
Monster Hunter 3 came out in Japan on Aug. 1. Lots of people waited outside Yodobashi Camera, across the street from the Akihabara train station, to get inside and buy a copy. Almost all of them were playing games on their PSPs to kill time.
Down the hallway and around the corner, a booth was set up for the press announcement. The booth consisted of a spokesman standing next to a TV screen. Whatever the spokesman was saying was drowned out by the crowd noises, and the TV was just showing game credits when I walked by. The press just ate it up.
Just another typical 9 AM in Akihabara.
