So, for those of you who don't know, PlayAsia is a website where you can buy Japanese games, accessories, anime stuff, figurines, etc. I made this thread so people could discuss their thoughts and opinions on the company (I put the thread in game discussion because it's what they advertise a lot) Now, to start of, I bought 2 games from them before, so it's only natural I trusted them with a third game. I pre-ordered a game back in February on the 15th. It released on the 27th, only to find out my pre-order meant nothing in the end as they actually didn't reserve one for my order. I wait till March 1st and place another order for the game (I really would like to get this game) and it goes though with payment. Ok, everything seems good...until they ran out of stock, they didn't update if it was in stock or not. Make a complaint about this issue and they say they receive more of the game on the 16th. Ok, wait for 16th, now the 19th and still stuck on "preparing order" (still haven't received the game). They only messaged me when I made a complaint, no other messages/emails from them for 19 days. Sorry if this doesn't belong here and for the long rant, I just want other gamers to be aware of this site and not get too frustrated about it if you do decide to order from them or check out the website.

I personally have little experience with PlayAsia. I've ordered one game from them and that was probably 3 or 4 years ago. Didn't have an issue. Sucks what happen to you. Pretty scummy in my opinion. I did plan on buying a fightstick from them, but it was $100 shipping and fuck that lol.

I have never used them but can't say I'd heard anything particularly bad about them either. I always use cdjapan to buy my Japanese media and have never had any issues with them at all, though they don't carry the "Asian" versions of things like PlayAsia does.
