    56 orders in total. They were godsent after I moved back from the UK to Belgium. There's hardly eny e-tailers here and the few there are aren't that good price wise. It was usually cheaper to buy from Play with free shipping.

    Last 2 or 3 orders I tried to place though they threw up "we can't dispatch this item outside of the UK" though. For some really silly things too.

    I'll have to find a new place to source games/boks/DVDs from the UK then.

    Sad to see them go even if, like others, I haven't used them for a while since October 2011.

    We all had pretty decent taste back then, it seems. I'm not sure I dare post what my last order was. :D

    This was the first purchase on my account, but I first used them in 1999 I think for the R1 DVD of the Matrix.

    X-Men: Special Edition (2000) (Region 1 DVD)
    Sold by Play.com

    Dispatched 11 Dec 2000

    They were THE place to use for import DVDs when the players first came out and dirt cheap too.

    Last order was 2006 mind so been while!

    It's funny seeing all the early DVD player adopters here who must have paid through the nose for their machines!

    Weirdly that was my first order from Play as well, on 17th Jan 2004. I thought I ordered from them before then but apparently not.

    142 orders in total, the last one being Sonic Generations on 25th Jan 2012, but I ordered from them very rarely after 2009.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Perhaps what is most disturbing is looking through those lists of purchases and working out how much of that stuff has never been used/played.

    I have just done that and there was a staggering 496.50 of unplayed games(that wasn't even including unwatched dvd's or unplayed cd's).

    What a monumental waste...

    I think The Matrix was one of the first things I bought from them as well (it's obviously not quite a complete list).

    Looking at my recent orders I have actually used them a lot more this year than I thought, mostly CDs and daily deals, the 32gig USB sticks for 9 quid were great.

    Amazon.com (pre-Amazon.co.uk existing).

    Order Placed: May 21, 1996
    The Ravengers : The Ravengers (Cyberpunk 2.0.2.0.)
    Holo Men (Cyberpunk 2.0.2.0.)

    They're both Cyberpunk 2020 tie in novels (not a bad read IIRC), so say I'm eager to see the Cyberpunk 2070 trailer is an understatement.
