Atari 5200 Guy Posted February 29, 2016 Report Share Posted February 29, 2016 Hey Atari IO Members! I have been wanting to try to import either a Famicom or Super Famicom since those machine appear to be the cheapest ones to obtain for now. I am leaning more for a Super Famicom mainly for a few games. No...I can't read Japanese...yet...but the games I am after I don't think require it (F-Zero, SimCity). Besides, the SFC looks better to me than the SNES does. Yea...I was one that saw the Super FC and said, "What the h-e-double hockey sticks" when I seen the Super NES. Anywho...for about $20 I can get one machine, one controller, and two or three games from a Japanese gaming website. I understand that shipping takes about 3 to 6 months at the cheapest option and ups the costs more. My questions relating to my point are: 1) When importing something like this does America charge a tax? 2) Has any Atari IO member ever imported a Japanese system and can give some heads-up? 3) Optional: What games would/did you get for the Super Famicom? I am trying to convince my wife to try to get one since I have a birthday coming up in a few months. So any pointers or suggestions that might help "seal the deal" I would appreciate it. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. I hope I can make this happen. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
