  • The Cashstar's logo is made using the Pricedown font (which is used in Grand Theft Auto's main logo). Plus, the name is a nod to Grand Theft Auto's developers and publishers, Rockstar Games.
  • The Power Ultra 3000 Pro printer makes an appearance as an easter egg in another Rockstar production, Max Payne 3.


There are a few different possible origins for the company's name:

  • The name may have been derived from the Japanese city of 掛川(Kakegawa), where there is a factory that makes glass for televisions. It may also be a play on words for the 神奈川県(Kanagawa Prefecture), a large prefecture including Yokohama City, just south of Tokyo in the Kanto Region of Japan.
  • As "kaka" may have been derived from "cack", i.e. "shit", and as "gawa" means "river" in Japanese, the name may be a play on the phrase "shit creek". "shit creek" is derived from the Scottish term "up shit creek without a paddle", which means to be in a difficult situation without an easy solution.
