Dealing with Play-Asia

I totally bought Borderlands. Like. I totally own it. Two copies actually. One for me. One for my mate. It is both tight and sweet. 
 
I technically own it.
 
I have ordered two copies off Play-Asia and am just waiting for the delivery and I just want to know...How long exactly does it take to process a fucking order?! You have my money. You have my address. You have the address through my PayPal account aswell. Shouldn't it be a simple matter of putting these two games in a box and giving it to FedEx to deliver to me post haste? No. For five days I have seen them processing my order. 
 
I originally thought that I would do it this way cause it would save me thirty dollars off the price of two copies which I think is cool but had I known it would take this long I would have paid the extra to get it immediately, I mean, I'm not mocking Play-Asia here but, I'd just rather pay a little bit more and get it right away. 
 
Anywho. Yeah. Can't wait regardless.
 
I downloaded Space Invaders Extreme. That game is awesome. I also acquired the Soundtrack (Space Invaders Extreme Audio Cluster) and that is not so awesome, I don't think it resembles the awesome beats I hear in the XBLA version which is a huge let down of sorts.
 
Thats about it.
 
School was cancelled today which makes it even better. Yeah.
 
Gone.

I  have ordered all the Phoenix Wright games from play-asia. It took about two weeks for each of them to reach Norway.

Australia.

I have a 10 day turn around for regular shipping (from Hong Kong) to Australia for $3-4 postage.  It always turns up within those 10 (business) days, mostly around 7 (business) days and I couldn't raise a single complaint about them.  If I wanted it quicker i could pay more, but why waste money on unnecessary postage that could be better spent on more games  ^-^

I'm pretty sure I paid a fair bit for postage using FedEx.
 
 EDIT: Shipping US$ 18.90 (~21.19 AUD). Seems a little steep heh

Then they should be tracking it, but if it hasn't shipped yet, they must not have stock.  E-mail them and ask.

@oldschool: They said it was instock when I ordered. I mean, if this were any other game I'd be fine but...it's fucking Borderlands man!

If it was in stock, there really isn't an excuse (unless it went out of stock almost immediately after you ordered it).  I would e-mail  them.  The anticipation  will make you appreciate it more  ^-^

Emailing them sounds like a solid plan. The anticipation is killing me duder.

FedEx to Poland is more like $30. That's why I just use Air Mail ($3-4).
As far as getting the thing shipped it should only take a day if they have the product available, and you should get an e-mail and a message in your Play-Asia account that it's been shipped. E-mail them. Delivery is of course another thing.

@Poki3: It says its in stock now aswell. And They're still "Processing Order" Which I've seen for fucking daaaaays. Should shoot an email shouldn't I?
Posted by Poki3
@Synthballs: I think you should. All (2) of the items I ordered where shipped the next day.

I sent an E-Mail and am now playing the waiting game. So fucking annoying.

I've had very limited and spotty results with Play-asia. But they're so cheap I can't complain.
 
I had to cancel my Batman order from them because they were out of stock when the website said they actually had stock. I didn't realize this until 2 weeks later.
 I ordered GTAIV from them and it arrived in about 3 weeks (To Japan by the cheapest (free) postage).
  Finally, I ordered Dragon Age last week. They processed the order and posted it within 2 hours... Now I am waiting for it to arrive.

This is racist. It's cause I'm white. And Male. Completely opposite to the key gamer demographics!
