Thanks for this, will come in handy.

Indeed....this means you can get Gears of War for about £19.55 delivered! Now that is a bargain.

and guitar hero 2 which has been out longer than 30 days :-(

i want this game

[SIZE=2]I think its quite expensive to ship Guitar Hero anyway...possibly around the £25 mark just for shipping![/SIZE]

Would this discount apply to a 20gb hard drive?

And would it work on my UK XBOX360??

will all the games for a ds work in the uk????

I've never been charged import duty with Play-Asia. Simply say you'd like it marked 'gift' in the comments section when ordering.

Excellent, been wanting crackdown since I missed the deal last time, thanks for this

No, not for UK accounts. It would work on a UK machine with a US account though.

You can set up a US live account on a UK machine with the "Hotmail US address trick" - can't find the link right now but it should show up with the right Google search.

Don't know about the lag.

Restrictions? Some US-only marketplace downloads are blocked when connecting from UK IP addresses. No big deal.

Ah i see. I was hoping to use the US marketplace since its much cheaper and bigger. Do they aslo stop you from downloading TV content etc.

Sorry for sounding thick but is there any difference between games from us,asia and uk?

For the 360?

Some games are region locked which will only work on a machine from the same region as the game.

Many asia-region games are region-free (so they'll work on any 360) and in full English. Full list here:
play-asia.com/paO…tml

Game content is pretty much the same (it has to be, for worldwide Live compatibilty although it's possible that some regional versions of certain games may be censored).

Box and manual artwork/text may differ.

Only issue is that gamestation, game etc etc would not take foreign versions in as part exchange. So take that into consideration if you like to trade in

Is the Wii region free?

how much can u spend without being charged import taxes



I think anything over £15 - £18 ish you meant to pay customs tax on and it varies depending what the item is.I've not ordered before from these so can't advise if worth having items sent seperately if you want a bit,as I don't know about their shipping costs etc.
I had some shoes once from eBay come from America and they worth $80 and I had to pay customs fee to release them from Royal Mail,I had £10 to pay so really about 25% of the value if you just consider $80 being worth around £40. Royal mail charged me a fee on top of taking the customs fee which was nearly as much as the customs tax in 1st place,and I paid cash too! However the shoes were worth it.I usually ask if sellers can mark as gift but for the shoes on their pages it said they don't take custom forms requests etc otherwise I don't have much bother paying customs tax on anything else I have had but they been low priced items.
