This was always one of those places my wife and I said we'd visit if we ever made the trip out to Japan.

Super Potatos (there are more than 1) are just mostly a tourist trap, so expect somewhat inflated prices on their ebay page. Best places to go while in japan are going to be Book Offs further from the main city. Outside japan then yahoo auctions is still decent if you're patient.

It's definitely a cool place to visit, but weirdly enough I've done most of my retro game buying at other stores. There's a few branches, the picture above is the most well-known store in Akihabara, but there's one in Shinjuku and a couple in Osaka as well. Maybe more.

 

I've probably bought a lot more games at RetroGameCamp.

A few of my Super Famicom games are still in the wrapping with price stickers on it and they don't seem outrageous. Maybe a little high, but RGC is a pretty prime location right on the main street in Akihabara so it definitely gets a lot of traffic of tourists just wandering in. The thing about Book-Offs and the like is that they tend to have more recent-gen trade-ins. I feel like its a lot more GameCube/PS2 gen and later stuff and then I'll often see like a 10-yen dump bin of Famicom/Super Famicom trash games. I'd imagine the RGC and Super Potatos of the world are already picking out the good stuff for themselves.
