    I tend to grab stuff closer to release. Not sure if I want to go ahead and grab it now or wait longer (I've already grabbed quite a bit, and truth be told if this game wasn't in English I'd not exactly be leaping to preorder it). I'll mull it over for a little longer...

    Ok, now that's a game that I'll gladly preorder. I'll wait and see if Nippon Yasan has it for pre order though, much prefer them to Playasia these days for price and shipping time.

    Definitely picking up Lost Song and Moero. These Chinese+English releases are a godsend!

    Not heard of buygame2.com. Have you used them many times? Are they reliable?

    I was referred to it by a friend. It's more expensive, but is said to be "legit and reliable" from what I've read.

    I'm new to imports in general, but play-asia sounds like the better deal to me. From what I read though, both of them are legit. I just check buygame2 to look for a release date.

    Just got an email from play asia about Moe Chronicle (as is seems to be being called now) and decided to have a quick look to see if it would be getting a English cover variant and found the below image on the HK PS blog. It has the telltale English memory card box, going to have a bit more of a poke about and see if anyone is carrying a HK variant.

    EDIT: So far I cannot find anywhere listing anything more than an "Asia" version with English, I've checked all the listed platinum retailers from the bottom of the blog post aswell as buy2game and play-asia

    With regard to Sword Art Online: Lost Song, do you think it'll get a version like the above? I can't decide whether or not to order the Asian version with English subs.

    There certainly seems to be a few of the higher profile games getting these versions. I would wait and see personally, its unlikely the asian version will totally sell out like the seemingly more limited English versions

    I think its a pretty good possibility of it happening as well. The first game must have done well enough for the second game to also get an Asian version with English subtitles. I don't really mind which version I get though, as long as its in English.

    Play-Asia have replied to say they don't think they will be getting a HK English variant of Moe Chronicles.

    That said they said the same with Oreshika right up until release so they might closer to the release
