Funding of game development[edit]

Play-Asia.com had funded the development of side-scrolling shooter Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer.[2][3]

Play-Asia.com suspended EU Sony importing[edit]

After the lawsuit against Lik-Sang for importing NTSC-J PS3s and games to the EU, Play-Asia announced that it would no longer be shipping PlayStation products to the EU.[4] [5] Regardless of this, Play-Asia.com still ships PlayStation 1, PlayStation 2 and as of late 2010, select PlayStation 3 titles to certain parts of Europe.
