I only noticed the Free Shipping section when I was checking to see what speed delivery I was wanting to try out. While 21 days may seem like it's too long, I don't think it's that
bad and I'm willing to wait that long. Especially since I'm stingy on money and I'd rather not spend it like a idiot and leave some for overtime.
Actually, scratch that. As soon as I sort my details out and other stuff, I'll consider making a test purchase off play-asia instead (seeing as it's somewhat cheaper). If I'm happy with their services and the customs isn't sore to my wallet, I'll just keep buying off them in the future.
Edit: of course knowing my luck, I'll probably forget to sort my details and I'll probably just end up using amazon instead.
@chouchou - Or maybe it's because Japan isn't within the EU. I know for a fact that when you usually buy games from places that are within the EU, you don't need to pay any customs at all (although there's a slight chance you'd need to pay VAT duties but I've never been hit with that when I use to buy cheap games from places like Italy). It's only when buying out of the EU that you get hit with customs and stuff.
And as for that group, I don't think I've heard of them. But I do remember seeing feminist's tear it apart about how it promotes rape culture
and I've also seen idiots (mostly from America) about how Europe is getting a retail copy and how they're getting hit with a Digital download
game instead. But as for the last part I'm really not sure but what I do know is that the culture here isn't the same as what it is in Japan. Then there was that article a few years back about how Sony EU was banning imports from Japan hitting UK / EU shores and Play-asia following through with it.
