    Play-Asia’s 2010 Lucky Lunar New Year Sale starts

    by Jenni Lada on Feb 3, 2010 at 02:32 PM

    It’s every Play-Asia customer’s favorite time of year – time for the annual Lunar New Year Sale! Until February 11, 2010, over 5,000 in-stock items at Play-Asia have been discounted. So if there’s an import game, console, peripheral or toy you’ve been watching and pondering purchasing, now could be the perfect time to pick it up. It’s easy to tell if an item is on sale – there will be a tiger icon on the product page and a note below the price telling you that a limited time offer is available.

    And, like usual, the raffle is on again this year. Play-Asia has 30 prizes ready to give away to people who purchase qualifying sale items from the site. (Like I mentioned earlier, look for the tiger on the product page!) Of course, the top prizes are simply wonderful. First prize is the limited edition Final Fantasy XIII PS3 Lightning Bundle. Second prize is a Japanese Wii and two games. Third prize is either a DSi LL and two games or a PSP and two games. Fourth prize is a GP2X Wiz and leather case. Customers can also have a chance of winning one of six $50 store credit vouchers or 20 $20 store credit vouchers.

    Don’t be disheartened if the item you want is out of stock when you first check. Just plug in your information at the site and ask to be alerted if Play-Asia restocks. Some of the items will still be available at their lower, Lunar New Year Sale price if they restock before February 11.

    Personally, I was a little disappointed this year. It seemed like a lot fewer in-stock items were on sale this year than there were last year. I probably won’t be splurging, unless Fatal Frame 4 (Zero: Gesshoku no Kamen) is restocked and is discounted.

    Roaring Lucky Lunar New Year Sale starting now! Nearly 5000 discounts and the chance to win cool prizes!

    Kung Hei Fat Choi! It’s Lunar New Year again! Some of you may be wondering what this Lunar or Chinese New Year is about: The Traditional Chinese Calendar is based on Moon cycles and starts a few weeks after the western New Year. This festival is the most important, and joyoys time in Chinese societies. People buy new clothes, sweep their house and children get red pockets.

    Every lunar year is represented by an animal. Last year, it was the ox that represents hard work, and this year is the year of the tiger, promising adventures and dynamic. These big cats are natural leaders, we certainly hope that they’ll lead everybody to a happy and prosperous year.

    To welcome the Tiger, will start into the New year with the Roaring Lucky Lunar New Year Sale, with thousands of brilliant bargains and a chance to win awesome prizes.

    Look for the goodies left on your Christmas wish list, there’s a good chance that they’re now available at a lower price. We have carefully reviewed our inventory and the result is a total of around 5,000 in-stock items, we have around 2000 games, 200 console accessories, 400 toys, 200 books, 800 music CDs and around 1000 movies.

    But this is not all! Like we’ve done with our sales in the past, you will again have the chance to win fantastic prizes such as consoles, games and store credits. So what are you waiting for?

    And this is how it works:

    Now Tiger will guide you to where the Sales and the Lucky Draw are. The cheerful big cat will stop by the bargained products between February 2nd and February 11th, snap up the goodies and there you go, entered into the Lucky Draw. The more you buy, the more you save and the higher your chances of winning our prizes.

    The winners of the 30 main prizes will be announced in this news post during the last week of February 2010 and will also be notified by e-mail.

    Yet, be aware. Some products are restocked regularly, so the tiger comes back time and time again, yet for limited versions, such as toys and music, once the tiger leaves (out of stock) he never returns. Set your priorities and plan your shopping strategies.
