One of the world's most famous video game stores, Japan's Super Potato, has finally opened up for international business thanks to its new, worldwide eBay account.

It might seem pretty strange seeing a shop be described as 'legendary', but for gamers everywhere, Super Potato really is as good as a store can get. The Super Potato brand actually has around ten stores in total, but the main store in Akihabara, Tokyo, has become something of a tourist destination – as well as a frequent stop for Japanese locals.

Described as "a museum as much as a shop," the flagship store (which is spread across three entire floors) boasts a vast array of video game, anime, and manga products, with a focus on rare Japanese retro games. Now, these products will be offered up to international buyers, although prices aren't cheap; according to eBay, some of the store's featured items are way above average in the price department.
