Play-Asia.com or Akiba for me?

Pretty simple question. Looking for those that have run the mill at Akiba and also those that have hit up Play-Asia.com

I see tons of games for about 4,500 at Play-Asia...with no shipping to Japan, while Akiba seems to be alot of chance in searching for an English title, usually used, and usually in the 7,500-8,500 range.

Any one got any finalizing comments about my observations (other then shipping time)?

I always used to go to Akihabara but never again. 8000 yen for a videogame? No thank you!! You're far better off going into the trade forum and buying from the States, or getting friends to mail you games. It doesn't really fulfill that impulse buy feeling but you end up paying a lot less for games. I would like it if we could have a stickied "Japan Game Trading/Selling" thread in this forum. I know I have games that I'd like to sell and I would like to buy some as well.
