Most PC games these days available for sale in Taiwan are only available in Chinese. It’s damn frustrating if you ask me, as this was not the case three or four years ago.
I have contacted several Taiwanese distributors for companies like Activision and EA Games. They both told me that it wasn’t worth it for them to pay for the rights to distribute the English version of big name games . They couldn’t offer me any kind of special offer order either.
Basically they said that if you want an English version of a PC game you are on your own. Ordering from the US means you have to pay twice the games’ worth.
I found this useful site, based in Hong Kong
They have a limited selection of English PC games, but they do ship for Free to Taiwan. They are also very fast in delivery.
I’m wondering does anyone have any more Asia-Pacific sites that ship out English PC games, for less than it would cost to do so from the US?
The site I posted above does not have some titles I am looking for.
Thanks to anyone who has any ideas on this issue.
