Okay, so not exclusively Famicom, but there are a few Famicom consoles in their warehouse:



Lots of cool images on their blog.  Worth checking out Grin

I saw the photo on social media and I'm a bit questionning on the way they are storing their games. I'm not sure if stacking 30 Famicom in box at once is a good way to preserve them.

That's no FamicomBox...  I also thought it was a boxed FamicomBox!  But look again Smiley

It is a 'third party' Famicom Box basically.  Back then there were a ton of grey market type unofficial units.  It's not SFC, that is the unit underneath.

Those pics look nice.  I plan on starting my own preservation society in the next year or two, just thinking about the best options to make it viable.

Please check out my gaming blog, FC Game Land, for information and my own personal thoughts on Famicom and other imported games.  I will also list items for sale on there, for those who are interested.

Judging by that picture, can there be any doubt that the Famicom and Super Famicom are Japan's most popular retro video game consoles?

Fixed.

I think if things were still how they used to be, this shop would have barely any stock of the FC/SFC. I wonder if they have any sales data online.  Roll Eyes

I remember reading an article that said there where more households in Japan that had a Famicom than that didn't back in the day.
