Hunting for a Japanese game mag from '92

Postby derboo » Sun Jul 15, 2012 10:37 am

Hi,

GaijinPunch suggested to ask here if someone could get access to this. What I'm looking for is an issue of the mag "The Super Famicom" published by Softbank, which is reported to contain a feature about the Korean console market of the time.

Judging by the timing (it says the Japanese editor, one Mr. Ohashi, stayed in Korea in early October 1992, this coming from the 1/1993 issue of Game Champ) it should be in issue 11/1992 or 12/1992, but I haven't even found any TOCs yet.

I'd be quite content with a good quality scan of the article itself, but I'm also ready to buy the whole magazine as long as it's affordable.

Moved to the main forum. I'd say this is on topic.

The only auction I could find for this magazine at all was this full set on yaj http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e122149411

Obviously a waste of money until someone sells the issue individually.
Ara Ararauna, Blue and Gold Macaw, 32-34 inches
They are adaptable, and enjoy being in social situations. They readily become adept at performing tricks, and seem to love doing so. Cost:$900-1400

Hmm, going by the issue numbers in that auction, it seems to have been at least a fortnightly mag, so the article should be somewhere in the 20s of 1992. Is it possible to contact sellers at Yahoo! auctions with questions? Probably only if you've got an account there, I guess.. Perhaps he wouldn't be able/willing to scan the article, but maybe he could at least check which issue it is in...
