Can anyone tell me where i can buy english software(games etc.) here in Tokyo?

The largest selection I know is at T-Zone main store in Akihabara. PC versions on the main software floor in a section in the back. Mac stuff is on the "import" floor. As usual, there is more PC than Mac.

The T-Zone store I mentioned for
English software is no longer. As far
as I know, there is no longer a
source for English software over the
counter in Tokyo.

There is now a small shop that carries a limited selection of English software, as well as a decent selection of English hardware (laptops). It's in Ebisu. Their info is at:
They also do hardware support, even if you did not buy the equipment there.

Newly discovered source for some English software. LAOX main Computer Kan in Akihabara has a good selection of the main Microsoft applications, a few Adobe and a few odd bits related to Japanese on English OS.
Prices are a bit higher than you woud find in the U.S.. But, at least they are available if you're in a pinch.
I'm told there are more stores in Akihabara stocking English, so I'll look some more and report.
