Is this poll directed at importing japanese games only?

If not, videogamesplus.ca PAL represent.

I import accessories or game soundtracks on rare occasion, but do not import games. (That option wasn't really covered in the poll.)

Ah, I do forget that we are supposedly an international forum. *looks at crappy soccer sticky*

Basically, it's more of a question about how often people shop at Play-Asia. I'll keep this going for about a day. Thanks again to everyone who has responded.

Sorry, I've only ever dealt with NCS.

Don't import much anymore since the Saturn died off in Japan, and I only own one PS2 import that I snagged about a year or two ago from NCS.
 
I use DVDBoxoffice to import games from the USA/CAD to Australia. I've found them to be the cheapest place to get stuff, the Canadian prices give me a very similar price to Australian dollars, and The cost of getting stuff from them end up being between 20-30AU CHEAPER than buying it in a store.

I've bought a few things from Lik-Sang also. I ended up buying Sonic Heroes a few months before it came out here, 20AU cheaper.

I'd say I like stores which keep the shipping inside the price, ie "Free Shipping". Much easier to note everything.

Yes, I use to buy from them every two weeks, depending of the week offer that is the feature I like more of them. The shipment is cheap, reasonably fast and I like they have so much stock. Lik-Sang is great for new games, but they haven´t oldies or offers.

I import all my games from...oh wait, I live here

Die ;)

A foolish thing to forget when asking about game importers - I'd guess the percentage of PAL gamers who import is much higher than the percentage of US gamers who do, for obvious reasons.
