Play-E chu pattern (Black shop)



Playe sent out an email yesterday at 3.30pm saying that there is an ongoing cashback promotion right now (Email title is "The Return of the Cashback!"). Buyers will just have to spend $80 between the period of Feb 17-19 and a $40 cashback will be credited to their Playe account.



Received another email at 2am today saying that there is no such promotion going on right now. They said that the previous email was sent out due to a system glitch. WAD THE FISH is this?! Told 3 of my friends about the promotion and they have already bought something from Playe. This is unacceptable even if they do allow full refund. If i am not wrong, false advertising is considered as criminal offense. Super unprofessional shop!

Not really 50% off, since it's store credit. Best case scenario, you buy $80, get the $40 cashback, then buy another $40 item. So the savings is $40 out of $120, that's 33% discount. But you probably won't find items exactly at $80 (maybe more, or maybe less so you add a second item and the total overshoots $80 quite a lot) or $40 (you probably buy another $80 new game instead). So the savings may be $40 out of ($85+$85), perhaps 23% discount. And you only have 1 week to spend the casback, you may forget (then it's 0% discount) or you may buy something you didn't intended to (ok I have $40 I don't want to buy a $80 new game so I get an old game that's $50... so they basically clear stock on something that wasn't selling).

They must have considered all of these already when they planned the promo and made the poster. They probbaly have second thoughts about it (should put "first 50 customers only" or "lucky draw 10 customers picked each day") and ate their words. Bad PR.

There are many other game shops u can choose from. Their price is always SRP and their service isn't that impressive too.

becus the entire world was getting 'normal' edition upgraded to biz edition for free (except sg) and sega has only started printing the normal edition after release which is what i was complaining about earlier but ofc, u all would rather pay 20$ for biz upgrade and support this nonsense

sibei jialat one here, cut people throat is number one, up price by $20 for that few pieces of cheap card?

asia PSN oso one kind, the purpose of digital game at first was to charge cheaper becuz no need box and disc, save cost save the earth eco friendly,

but look the price now? like no much differences from physical copies.

like this might as well go for physical copies? at least when freak time comes, needing of cash, can sell it away.
