Japanese hardware sales, Nov. 8 - Nov. 14: On the Bus edition

As we write these words, one group of brave, brave souls is driving down the loneliest stretch of road in existence: The pixelated highway of Desert Bus. You can show your support for these madmen by hopping into their livestream and offering some words of encouragement, or by donating to Child's Play through their site. We've decided to take it a step further -- we acquired a copy of Penn and Teller's Smoke and Mirrors, and are going to play alongside the LoadingReadyRun crew, minute for minute.

Okay, here we go! It's booting up! We're pretty excited.

... OH GOD NO IT NEVER STOPS.
