I'm looking into buying PC games from America, would I experience any compatibility issues here in the UK? - It does say it's compatible with Windows machines...

There is only one compatibilty issue I can think of and thats the compatibility between your wallet and the tax man should you get more than £18's worth in one go!

The mail forwarding company I'm hoping to use is willing to 'write anything that I want' on the package. I received a CD from someone using the same company and even though I paid 67 quid, it says on the package 'Value - $1.75' :w00t:

Anyways since we're on this topic I understand consoles from America have several compatibility issues, but does that apply to the hand held consoles as well - i.e. Nintendo DS Lite, PSP etc etc?

Portable Consoles are Region Free for games, PSP is Region Locked for UMDs :)

Cheers, so that's the green light for the Nintendo DS Lite?
