Damn yea, I just know it was listed under the region free one before cause I was looking at it 2 days ago when I ordered GRAW

but now there seems to be two versions one that is NTSC/J

Hopefully it'll be true, I wanna play TR

Sorry if I'm scaring people just noticed it went missing so got confused

My copy shipped today and the web site still says it region free. I also got an email from play-asia promoting the game as region free as well and now shipping.

I do not think anyone will have a problem, Play-Asia is a great company.

Mine shipped as well. *Fingers Crossed*

Hope it works on my US system. I know the website and email specifically says No Region Protection but they have the disclaimer on their compatibility website stating:

"Play-Asia takes no responsibility for the correctness of this information and in general always recommends only to purchase game software that has been designed for the system you own. "

My guess is they test it before they state it works on all systems, so I'm not too worried.

Yes they do test them. I have spoken to a customer service rep about these games on few occasions and they do test them extensively.

So far Blazing Angels works perfectly fine I have not had a single problem with it.

Mine shipped today too. In the same e-mail they said they are now shipping Okami too. I was about to order it before I realized I don't speak or read Japanese. And I don't have a PS2. *pouts*

My Tomb Raider Legend shipped too. Here is their reply when I asked about compatibility:

"We have tested with this Asian game and it works with the US console. But we will recommend you to confirm its compatibility before you placed an order as we may not able to cancel the order if your parcel was shipped out.

In case of any further question please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Best regards,

Tony

Yeah, the email doesn't seem to make much sense, but I'm just gonna assume it will work since they said they tested it.

^Call of Duty 2 is cheaper from Half.com and you don't have to worry about any of that stuff you asked about since it's the NTSC version.

Just wanted to let you know I ordered far cry a few weeks ago and got it in exactly one week from when I ordered. I was supsised how extremly fast they were. Others have said this but the game looks like the same exact thing as the american versions. Box, manual, and disc are exactly identical to the america version (my friend has the american verison). I can still log into the US xbox live, still get achievements. I really thought it was the american versions since I cannot tell a single difference. Me and my friend linked our systems and they worked fine, we both got online and everything..
I emailed play asia a few times and they always got back with me in about 15-20 hours. I wish more games were region free, but for now on I will be buying my games from play-asia!!!!

I'm all for saving money on games and these are really good deals on 360 games. But for some odd reason I find it ironic that a $40 game is considered a deal now. Boy... times have changed.

Uh, it's not that it's a $40 dollar game or that times have changed (which I find that ironic seeing how gamers paid the same amount if not more for new releases 15 years ago), it's that it's $20 cheaper than normal.

Nothing's changed really, but you've apparently just decided to change the meaning of what a "deal" is. If I really wanted Kingdom Hearts 2 and found it someplace for $30 right after release, then that's what I like to call a deal because it's signifcantly cheaper than it normally is at just about every other retailer.

I think you misinterpreted my post. What I mean is that last gen and the gens beforehand, $40 for a regular game was never considered a deal, but now with this gen it is. That's what I find ironic. Its like $40 has become the new $30 of past gens. Times have definitely changed.

AfterEdit: I'm talking about overall end price value, while I think you are talking about the value taken off of the original price. Two different things.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but even in the Super NES and N64 generations weren't there occasional $60 price tags? I recall paying pretty much $50 for everything on the N64 and Gamecube that was 1st party.

Keep in mind these are all also "1st generation" next-gen titles. I think $40 is a really good deal for GHOST RECON, TOMB RAIDER on a new console...as good as you'll find!

Yup. I remember paying $79.99 for Shadows of the Empire of the N64 since KB was the only place that had it. The reasoning back then was that cartridge manufacturing costs were high, thus the higher prices. When the industry switched to optical media, the prices went down. Wasn't that one of the big selling points to developers for using optical discs? Now we're back to higher costs, apparently due to higher cost of development. Sucks don't it?

I have a question for you all. I ordered GRAW from this site on the 11th of April and sill haent received it. This is my first time usung the site. So I entered in all of my info adress and such and payed with pay pal to save the xtra $5. I go back to the site today to check on the status of my order and it says no account is registered with that email address. Is this common when paying with pay pal? I have a email from pay pal stating that I did pay but have yet to hear anything from play asia. They dont have a number where you can call so I dont know what to do., I know that it takes alittle longer to get the game being that it comes from asia but I'm confused.

I paid with Paypal too and just got GRAW last Friday...took a couple of weeks but didn't have any problem. Whether you paid with Paypal or not shouldn't have anything to do with your account history not showing up...

So far I've made three orders from Play-Asia. Two have shipped and came in seven business days. I'm in MA. My third order (Farcry) is taking quite a while just to ship. I suppose it's because a lot of other people ordered it before me. I have no problem waiting a bit if it saves me $$. I have FFXI and Oblivion to keep me occupied. :bouncy:

Tomb Raider is working nicely. Play-asia gets two thumbs up from me. Thanks CAG
