How many quarters for a PSP?
I've always loved what you can buy in vending machines in Japan, including manga, underwear, and iced jelly drinks in a can. Now, Sony is taking the trend to the US with their introduction of their vending machines called "Sony Access" to sell everything from PSPs and mp3 players to blank DVDs to accessories like headphones to games and movies. Malls in Atlanta, Boulder, and Santa Rosa are lucky enough to get the initial rollout.
For the record, with a list price of $250 USD, it would take 1,000 quarters to buy a PSP, bring an extra roll for sales tax.
