As many of you I have a JAP PSP and am looking forward to the US release so we can get some proper games in English. I know that a number of games will be released on the 24th in the States, like wipEout Pure and GT4 and stuff, but where do you think we should get them from? I tried Amazon.com, playusa.com and ebgames.com but they don't ship to the UK for games. gbax.com, which is UK based, will stock them a week or so after they are released. Do any of you know of any reputibile US games stockists that will export them to us in the UK?

Cheers!!

trouble with Uk shops is that they get them after the 24th after theve been shipped to the uk. You might as well do what i have done and pre order a load of titles from lik-sang. Shipping aint too bad at all 15 for express delivery (1-3 days) and games are 31 as opposed to the 40+ you will pay in the uk
Dont forget about import duty though

that's a good point meloe. I was just looking on LikSang and the free delivery is 7-14 days, which is rediculous. I can't wait that long! Maybe i'll go to LikSang and pay extra for fast delivery! Cheers.

eBay is your best bet for the time-being, i ordered NFS Underground Rivals on Tuesday, it arrived Thursday. maybe it was somewhere in the UK where it came from, so your better off looking for people who are selling in the UK - theyre about the same price (40) and theyre sometimes quicker than Lik-Sang and other sites like that.

Sometimes you get charged by customs, sometimes you don't.

It's just the luck of the draw :-(
