The Promise of Haruhi Suzumiya (PSP) Super Premium Box: something you can only hope to get

Famitsu gives us details of what devoted Haruhiists will get for their unwavering devotion and ordering the limited edition copy of Namco Bandai's upcoming PSP adventure, The Promise of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Top to bottom, left to right: a Mikuru lanyard for your PSP, a UMD case with the SOS-dan logo, stickers, a PSP bag with the school logo, the box, an artbook, a vertical display base (more on that in a bit), and special earphones.

What is the vertical display stand good for? Well, you can pretend to have a little chat with Yuki. The effects of which can also be achieved by talking to a wall...

...However, she announces the time. Just thinking about it is already making me hard.

And for those truly dedicated fans who reserve their copy of the Premium Box now, they also get this limited figure of Haruhi in Christmas swimsuit outfit by none other than MaxFactory, responsible for most of the Haruhi figures in the market right now.

The Super Premium Box costs 9,450 yen or ~$82.14, plus shipping, and the regular package (game only) is 5040 yen (~$43.81). And this great box will most likely NOT be available in a store near you, unless you live in Japan (so you're gonna have to import). Also, the game will probably stay in Japanese unless someone picks it up (pleeeeaaaasssseee...), but I suppose if you know enough Japanese it's all good. The game comes out on December 20, 2007, and stores like Play-Asia will have stocks of both the game and the Premium Box on the same day (note that you can't get the figure from here though), so nark your calendars and set your alarms to avoid losing to other Haruhi fans. :(
