    Just a heads up for everyone that is waiting for the official component cable to arrive in these shores (Gameplay told me a few days a go that their next estimated delivery is the 30th January) that Play-Asia have them in stock at £20.51 before delivery. Should save you some money on all the Ebay auctions.

    It was mentioned on another thread that some act of god, earthquake or something, has befallen Taiwan and they are now behind on their orders.

    I'm in the same boat as you and krill, ordered back in Nov and missed out by a day ordering to get one of the stock they had in then. Still waiting for it to be dispatched.

    Anyone received their lead yet? Mine shipped 30/12/06 but no sign as yet. I guess the 30th was a Saturday and then there was Sunday and NYD but it still seems to be taking a while. I'm sure that most things have been received in around a week when i've ordered before.

    Hmmm looks like it's gone walkies, sent an email to Play Asia. Cheers guys.

    EDIT:

    One thing guys - did it just fit through the letter box or did it require a door knock? Just wondering if it's maybe at the depot and that the postie hasn't left a card.

    Mine was left with a neighbour so I assume that it was a door knock job.

    Thanks for that, i'll check with the post office tomorrow, but I guess it may have been returned to sender by now if everyone had their delivered over a week ago.

    I wouldn't be worrying too much just yet CAS. I order alot from playasia and despatch to receipt here is usually pretty bang on two weeks.

    My orders from November/December have been taking an age though, a DS game that was despatched from them on Dec 3rd finally turned up a couple of days ago, and another which was despatched Dec 11th turned up yesterday.

    I'm still waiting for a few items that were despatched after those including a Wii component cable which was despatched on Dec 22nd & my copy of Viva Pinata which sadly does seem to be lost as it was despatched Nov 18th(first one to go missing from playasia & I've had loads of stuff from them). Playasia are looking into my lost Viva Pinata as we speak.

    Anyway, as you can see, playasia packages do seem on a bit of a go slow for some people, I wouldn't worry for now;)

    I guess, cheers Tetlee :). Do you think that's more down to the Argentinian postal service though? I don't know how efficient over there however as my South American experience only goes as far as Peru.

    It does tend to be slower, but not that much slower. As I mentioned, usually packages from playasia arrive pretty much bang on 2 weeks after they've been despatched so this delay certainly isn't typical.
