We just picked up Tony hawk.
But they also had GT4, and a few EA titles.

Do you know what happens with regards to pre orders & shipping??
I presume that if all the items are out on different days then I would have to pay shipping for EACH item??
For those that have used this compnay, what in your experience is the likeliehood of the package getting tagged by Customs??
I would assume,that, if it does indeed get stopped, then there really isnt that much of a saving over buying from a UK shop?

still som minor savings. yes you will definately get stopped by customs! They want their taxes, best bet sometimes is to buy off an independent seller (off ebay for example) and ask them to send it as a personal gift with a low value, and you will avoid import duty. As to the other question, Lik-sang charge you as soon as you pre order.

Asking for the game to be sent as a personal gift is breaking the law. If you get found out you could get a kicking off the state and still pay customs.

They sold Tony Hawk to us yesterday.
We left the store with it.
In fact, the guys suspects he will run out of games before the systems even arrive.
I've attached two pics.
Sorry they're blurry.
The camera sux.
In 30 minutes, I'll call and see if they got any today.
Gonna get "Ape Escape:On the Loose" and "Ridge Racer".
