So, we've all seen topics before on the best place to import the original Story, V-pets, etc. Some time has passed since then, so does anyone have any opinions on the best, current places to import Sunburst/Moonlight? Play-Asia isn't actually that bad when it comes to DS games, usually at least matching eBay's prices.

Do you have a preference? If so, post and give us a few notes as to price, shipping, quality of customer service etc. It will be greatly appreciated, so many thanks in advance.

I preordered mine from Play-Asia. It's the first time I've preordered from them, and so far I've been pleased--it shipped a couple of days ago. I don't have the actual game yet, though. ^^;;

I wouldn't use YesAsia if you have to have it now. They're reliable but extremely slow. If you're patient, they'd be good. I've used them many times for CDs and Tamagotchi and never had a problem. (I have the Savers Best CD on preorder from them, actually.)

There's also NCSX (http://www.ncsx.com), but I've been a little wary of them ever since the first Digimon Story came out--it was listed as being in stock when I ordered, and two weeks later they changed it to "backordered" and canceled my order. Preorders are probably safe, but shortly after the game's out might be another story. ^^;; (I couldn't preorder last time 'cause I was going to be out of town on the release date...)

I'd recommend Play-Asia as well.

I've ordered the Japanese version of Pokemon Pearl, and it came without any problems I could see. It wasn't the quickest in the world, but I had ordered it during a holiday in Hong Kong, I think, and it was before the weekend. Not mention I had chosen the cheapest order type. :p

Price wise, it also seems that you'll pay the same no matter where you order. I was lucky enough to snag the original from an import store in Hong Kong for $35, but as the popularity of the Story series has risen recently, I don't see that happening again. Thanks for giving me some options (looks I will be going with PA though).
