Dreamcast wristwatch is a time machine
Sega issued this amazing Dreamcast wristwatch, with a timepiece inside a little silver console, back in 2006 – when the Dreamcast was already good and dead.
Now, amazingly, after its even deader, Sega has reissued the watch, and I find myself interested in wearing a wristwatch for the first time in years.
The only problem is that it’s $168.90, which is quite a bit more than a full-size Dreamcast. If that’s not a problem for you, NCSX has the hookup.
Want a limited edition yellow Virtue’s Last Reward watch? Pick up VLR from Aksys’s store right now on 3DS or PS Vita, and you’ll get one.
Now here’s the tricky part: if you don’t have the game, you might not know you want this tie-in item. So now you might have to gamble on buying the game under the assumption you’ll want one of these after playing it. It’s a nonary game-style mindbender!
…again, which you won’t get until you play it.
Golgo 13 watches, guys. You can live your life always asking “What Would Duke Togo do?” during those times (hur hur) when you have to make hard decisions, without having to actually wear one of those corny bracelets.
Seiko is releasing these two limited edition models (total of 1,500 units produced) in Japan today for around $725 and $800, and they’re going for around that much on eBay right now. My birthday is in seven days, y’all, and if you’re wondering what Duke Togo would get me for a present, this is what he’d buy — a watch with his own face on it.

If you’re ready to check out Chunsoft’s shockingly well-received DS “sound novel” 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, good news! Aksys is once again offering bundles containing the DS game and a replica of the odd-looking watch featured in the game — which, in real life, is a lot heavier than it looks (it’s pretty much solid die cast metal!). It’s $36.99, and it’ll probably sell out soon. This is the best deal you’re going to get on a game-and-watch-you-could-break-someone’s-jaw-with package.
In other DS deal news, the Dragon Quest Slime Speaker Stand is now down to $20.58 at Amazon, a price at which the accessory is very nearly irresistible. I know because I’m trying to resist it.

999 replica wristwatch now for sale on Aksys’ online shop. Previously available as a GameStop-exclusive online preorder bonus for Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, this timepiece can now be yours for just $4.99.
Sure, it looks like something you’d get with a Burger King kids meal, but it’s modeled after the watches all of the game’s characters’ wear when they wake up on a sinking cruise liner. It’s made of “heavy-duty metal and resilient plastic tubing, with a screen that appears to be solid metal until the button is depressed, displaying the time in bright, red digits” — don’t wear this to an airport!
By the way, everyone is totally sleeping on 999, but initial impressions have been very positive. If you care about review numbers, Nintendo Power awarded it a 9, and Destructoid threw out a perfect 10 for its “phenomenal” story. Chunsoft, by Jove, you’ve done it again!
Transformers watch. Okay, there have been a bunch of Transformers games, so this is game-related enough for me to post. Even if I couldn’t justify it, holy crap look at this thing.
It’s a REAL WATCH that transforms into a TOY ROBOT. The screen also displays little animations or the Autobot logo. It’s $300, which is totally worth it if you meet nerds all the time and want to impress them. I’ve extracted enough joy from just knowing that this exists that I don’t even have to imagine buying it. Besides, my watch might not be a robot, but it has a robot on it.
Game & Watch, minus the game.
