    What are the best online retailers for Asians around the web? I happen to stumble upon YesASia and Play-Asia, but I was hoping there were more, because both sites are pratically the same anyway. So yeah, any help, guys?

    Actually, yesasia and play-asia are quite different.

    Apart from play-asia generally being more expensive, yesasia offers free shipping for all orders above 39$ (and mark all their packages as gifts, so generally no tariff regardless of where you order to). Yesasia also has stuff from Korea and China unlike play-asia.

    Also, Hong Kong-based dealextreme is great for cheap unlicensed stuff.

    This seems like the kind of thread to ask something i've always wondered..

    What are most your localisations? Forgive me, I'm an ignorant American. If you live in Thailand, lets say, what are the bulk of the games you're playing, in regard to language. Are you usually stuck with either English, Japanese, or one of the PAL copies with the big European languages? And if so, I would assume gamers in Asia either adapt and become fairly literate in another language, or simply miss out on some of the beauty of games with a large bulk of dialog?

    I'm sorry, what?

    Anyhow, thanks for the other links, guys. It'd be nice if you'd site any other online retailers for Asia you know of.
