Samus and Sagat unbox Guilty Gear X3d -SIGN- Limited Edition

Get a look at the PS4 retail box contents

Unless you have access to cool things like Daft Punk sets and laser beams, unboxing videos suck. They're all bad. I've even seen ones where people are eating while unboxing, and talking with their mouths full. Gross, right? Who would do th...
