The Uk may have a new model by then, so who knows if it will be worth it in 4months time.

The pound to dollar ratio may be completely different as well.

Go for it. I think you have a good chance of bypassing customs if you allow room for the PS3 box to enter inside a suitcase.

With the current exhange rate: 80GB with motorstorm £243, 40GB with spiderman 3 blu-ray £195.

get a 40gb one from there its only 200 pounds. unless u want extra usb ports and wanna play ps2 games then get a ps3. also my cousin got through customs by removing the box.

What if you wanna keep the box though?

yh thats the problem. you might have to wrap it with christmas warping paper or something and include a message saying to xxxxx happy christmas. so they mark it as a gift and dont charge you tax on it.

Let me give you some advice which could save you some dosh. I posted this over on AVF aswell.

If you are staying at a hotel (or anywhere as long as someone is in to sign for it). I suggest you order it off of Amazon.com

You wont have to pay any Sales Tax if your billing address is in the UK. I've done this a few times (not with a PS3) and it's has worked great. Normally go for 2 days shipping. Amazon.com is cheaper than most stateside stores anyway.
