When I typed that, it was like I was typing one thing... then I suddenly thought of a logical, perhaps strategic reason to do so. My bad for posting something where I changed thoughts mid-sentence.

Given that, maybe waiting for the NX before releasing to China is more likely than we think.

That would be a dream come true for me. I'm more than happy to import and buy domestic just to get a head start on some things. Plus, just think of all the great Japan only stuff!
