Windows 8 Pro DSP Release Commemorative Packs

From Wiki
Complete Windows 8 Pro DSP Release Commemorative Pack (Regular Yū)
The complete regular pack for Yū, with OS.

The Windows 8 Pro DSP Release Commemorative Packs (Japanese: DSP版 Windows 8 Pro 発売記念パック) were special bundles by Windows Navi+ that came with some copies of Windows 8 during its launch in Japan. They included a Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse and a Theme Pack CD-ROM, and feature Yū and Ai Madobe. For both girls, there were three kinds of packs (so six in total):

  • The regular white pack, limited to 4000 units each for Ai and Yū;
  • The Nipponbashi variant (leopard box), limited to 500 units per character;
  • The Akihabara variant (golden box), limited to 444 units per character.

The regular and Nipponbashi have strictly identical CD-ROMs, while the Akihabara one has a different wallpaper and the "秋葉原リミテッドエディション" (Akihabara Limited Edition) mention on the CD-ROM. All three Packs also have distinct decorations on the mouse.

The CD contains three Full HD wallpapers of Ai and Yū, a fourth picture to be used as a password lock screen, and 44 short audio files of Ai voiced by Nao Tamura and Yū (Asuka Nishi). A .deskthemepack file is also included in order to set up the backgrounds and system sounds.

In the unlikely case someone ends up with a lone and sealed mouse box that is known to belong to one of these packs, they can be distinguished by a sticker: a regular mouse is contained if there is no sticker, the Nipponbashi one if there is a blue sticker, and the Akihabara one if it is green.

A Duracell battery (dated from around 2012-08 and expiring around 2019-03) is included in these packs, though if still present, it is certainly dead and probably even leaked. It can be advised to open sealed packs in order to remove the battery.
