Play-Asia brings another great sale with a goofy name, offering up 25% off all in-stock items that were not released in the last 30 days.

Check out highlights and the main sale page, or click the comments link below to see your fellow CAG's recommendations.

Think about summer, think about the beach, the sea and all that fun! Play-Asia.com is a sea of popular games, movies, discs and toys, come catch your long time favorites and discover lots more, join the many happy swimmers, sun bathers and octopus catchers at the seaside this summer!

Get ready to hit the beaches as the Summer Sale will commence from this very moment onwards towards the 20th of July, all in stock items will be reduced by 25% (yes you've read correctly, a whopping 25%!), just spot our Summer Sales mascot, the octopus, on our many product pages and catch him.

The octopuses are running loose throughout the website and only stay on a product page for as long as it is in stock. Some products are restocked regularly so octopuses come back every so often while others have limited availability so the octopuses never return once they are caught.

To avoid disappointment, get your baskets and water tanks ready and catch them as quickly as you can spot them to avoid disappointment. This octopus catching season is only going to last for a couple of days, start catching now and save plenty of cash in the process.

Hmm, this makes Coloris, Digidrive and Boundish bit Generations for GBA 7.43 each.

I'll have to consider those. I think I read that one of them is pretty much just Pong though.

I like the matching color for the Wii, but I just don't use corded controllers anymore whenever I use the gamecube controller to play a game that supports it. I always use the wavebird. If they would just make an upgraded white wireless wavebird for the Wii that allows you to play games and navigate the Wii's menu with it, then I would definitely bite, but otherwise, I just don't see the need really.

Oh, curse my internet filter for blocking Play-Asia! I'm sure the few things I want, that are usually low stock anyway, will be gone by the time I get home (if they're even in stock to begin with).

Picking up all three knocked one down to 6.43. I picked up all 3 as well as the Famicom Mini (Classic NES) Legend of Zelda also for 7.43.

They have some other Famicom Mini games also discounted, but none that cheap. SMB is 20.xx unfortunately.

Just copped that Battle Fantasia for $44.57 (shipped).

EDIT: Damn, those white and silver PS3 controller looks sweet as hell. I still have two unopened Sixaxis controllers from last winter though. It's not much of a loss as they were $20 each shipped (Amazon), but I'd rather have different colors. Rumble is a plus ;)

nice prices, Amazon's spoiled me with no shipping/no tax though. kills me to see $34 shipping. Guess I'll have to take a couple games out and see if it's any better.

The shipping rates kill it for me. It's still good for import games though, but I don't know of many import games that are good to have.

Wow, I ordered two games that are on the sale literally 1-2 weeks ago (DJ Max 2 and Initial D: Street Stage).

Do they do any price matching like Amazon does within 30 days? :(

The octopus is not showing on the game I want. It's in stock and regular priced all the time. Dang it.

You can't use a coupon when there is a sale going on right?

Um, really? $3 for shipping a game from Asia is really quite a bargain..

Right. They don't let you double dip.

If you only have non-sale items in your cart, however, you can still use a coupon.

I think this is finally enough to convince to buy Ouendan. I loved Elite Beat Agents, and I bought Ouendan 2 from YesAsia several months ago. While I'm at it, I think I'm going to add two Bit Generation games as well. Looks to be about $51.53 plus shipping for all three.

EDIT: Shipping costs $5.90, so the total will be $57.43. Gotta think about it a bit more before I pull the trigger. Any advice?
