Glad I decided to get school girl zombie hunter from amazon.

Best buy has been coming soon for like a week, and now it's sold out. It never even went up. lol.

 

Why do they do that? Sometimes best buy is awesome, but sometimes stuff like that makes me hate them.

 

They have me by the balls, though because no other place offers discounts on CEs.

 

i thought prime also did discounts, did for me, only didn't seem to work for some of the cheaper new games

Wow I guess it did better than expected if its breaking the 20$ pattern since xillia.  Even hearts r hit 20 and it was a limited print vita game.  I already got berseria when it was on sale on amazon for 24$. Glad I splurged for once since typically its after I buy it that games magically plummet in price.

i always have that same luck, i just look at it as still got a deal just not the best, worst is when i wait, all the inventory is magically shifted to sold by some third party and the price gets jacked up

I think it could be because they changed it somewhat recently. So all orders before the cutoff are fine, but newer ones may not get the discount anymore. Or are you still getting the discount for CE's on an order you could place today?

They changed it that you don't get the 20% off on released games anymore.  Only works on pre-orders.  Also they haven't been doing the 20% off on the CE or LE ver. a lot more lately.  Like the Xenoblade 2 CE.

Apparently the Aksys Black Friday sale has started, lasting until 11/27.  It kind of sucks, though 20% of the proceeds are going to the Red Cross which is nice.

Just fyi, but PA's current sale is glitching like crazy, similar to the 2 for $25 Vita sale glitch last time around, so if anyone is interested,

Caveman Warriors is the key to the glitch, so make sure to have that in your cart, and every following PA exclusive title added will get zero'd out, and you just pay the shipping.

 

The core sale is supposed to be a BOGO on PA exclusives, but clearly, it's much more than that currently.

 

Happy hunting all! ;D

 

Fingers crossed it'll get fulfilled like last time. ^___^

Does it work on anything else? All of those kinda look shovelware-ish to me..

I've tried other things, but it doesn't.

 

The reason it worked on these is because the regular promotion is BOGO on these games, but I've tried adding other ones too, but no dice.

 

If you do try it though, make sure you don't go through normal Paypal checkout at the beginning, and go through the website checkout, and then pick Paypal payment method where you enter the code GEMATSU..

 

If you go straight from Paypal, it'll charge you the full amount for some odd reason, but the latter method seems to work just fine, albeit, I have checkedout for awhile, so hopefully the latter still works.

 

If anything, the value here is just too great. ;D

Wow that's insane... and it got fulfilled last time?

 

I put one in for local delivery to a family member to lives there and got free shipping. I could've also chose Store Pickup which would be weird... But hopefully it works. Or should I have gone with express delivery?

Hard to say.

 

You were able to checkout okay with the glitch?

 

Also, I think express might've been better since they prepare it faster, so less of a chance for it to be cancelled maybe?

 

Who knows.

 

Since you actually have relatives there and free shipping, that'd be amazing, assuming they'd be able to ship it to you for less. ;D

 

And yes, the 2 for 25 glitch orders were fulfilled last time. ^___^

I neglected to apply the coupon, but put in an order using PayPal and the total came out correct.

I would've included Caveman Warriors if I knew it was eligible. lol.

Ironically, it was the only PA exclusive title that actually wasn't listed on the sale page itself. XD

 

That's probably why it broke the sale. ^___^

Got in on this, thanks man!!! But I also went ahead & cancelled my previous order of just Rive PS4 & Tachyon Project Vita.

How long does it generally take for the funds of a cancelled PlayAsia order to return to the original form of payment used??

I'm just happy for Imouto Paradise 2 soon....1 was a pretty fun Nukige. Of the two games I'll play one of them.

I never even bothered before because I assumed they fixed it. Anyway they changed the payment screen to worldpay or something like that. I've never seen that before. I kept my 2 previous orders though in case they cancel this.

The issue is more getting a refund if the order is cancelled. Play-Asia likes to just give you store credit and call it good instead of actually giving you a refund. You may also want to look into the name of the site if you're wondering why people are trying to get games cheap.

It's in the top left area on your order details through the website.
