Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

I don't know if the Japanese would want that.

Apparently, some do. In case you missed it, this is a Japanese auction...and it has bids! I thought you of all people would appreciate this, but perhaps the irony was completely lost on you.

I laugh and cry, considering that's mainly how I learned how to play Beatmania for the longest time. I just couldn't imagine seeing myself putting in Swap Magic for Beatmania US. lol.

They gotta play the US exclusives somehow!

Also, if I'm guessing right the top bid isn't very high at all (like around $16) which is pretty funny too.

It's because our cover art is so 1337.

Honestly, while this had to be one of the funniest oddities I've seen in a while, I also can't help but think of this scenario everytime I'm on this page:

Japanese buyer: Yes, I got Beatmania US.
(After trying to play it for 20 minutes)
Japanese buyer: WHAT HAVE I DONE? This is worse than Tokyo's public toilets.

While this thought gives me a good laugh, it makes me sad at the same time.
