Found 4th Jun 2008Made hot 4th Jun 2008
I don't know if this is available any cheaper anywhere but its £31.99 delivered from Movietyme.

I've used them loads of times in the past for my PS3 games and can highly recommend them.

Cheapest I've seen yet, however not guaranteed to be a PAL disc...
Granted its region free but that does limit trade in value/liklihood for those interested in that sort of thing (my expensive kids mean I have to trade to play sometimes :P)

Also their street date is listed as June 17th when the release date is widely regarded to be 12th of June so don't expect it on release date...

Voted toasty for those that want to take advantage (I'm a pass personally).

Also take into account the Metal Gear Online servers could possibly be region locked.

Guaranteed not to be a Pal disc as its an import site.

Good for those able to wait but my Game order (36.99) has reward points ad quidco as bonuses bringing it to a very similar price for release date.

you could have problems with updates as well. if an add on pack comes out a UK downloaded add on might not work on a US version of the game.

It won't but it's very easy to get on the US PSN to download that version anyway.

I bought COD4 from movietyme, have all the new map packs, get updates, play online, etc, etc, with no problems whatsoever, and I would imagine that Metal Gear will be exactly the same.

i know thats what i said isnt it?:?
alot of people have had problems with COD4 new map pack, with US version of the game and UK addon.
and if the servers are region locked you cant play against UK people.

Ive never had any issues with updates for NTSC or NTSC/J games. Additional content you have to pay for might be an issue. In those instances (like my NTSC Warhawk) you have to have a PSN account for that region. I have 3 accounts on my PS3. Handy anyway, so you can download content that is exclusive to each region !

Knowing Konami, online play will be IP locked as it was for the beta, this doesn't look like a great idea

You should have done the ASDA deal last week, guranteed to be PAL too!

i saw movietyme had it at this price a while ago - the problem is the delivery time - its anythin up to 2 weeks

I wasnt it sooner than that!

Not UK... COLD

Pathetic Delivery times from here. For a game everybody wants so quickly I wouldn't even think about these. I bought Burnout Paradise and Devil May Cry 4 from them and both took around 2 weeks. I've just pre-ordered from shop to for £36.99. I'd rather pay a 5er extra for having it on the day rather than having a game that may or may not be online compatible over here. That said..... if you aren't in a hurry. go ahead

Yes i have done the ASDA deal, is it not avaliable anymore?
Also it was slightly cheaper. Im not going to vote this hot or cold.

Seen a few uk posts on game sites of people getting the game already, anyone got a game shipping email yet? Hoping ASDA online is as bad at keeping release dates as the retail stores. want it this week!!!!!

A seller on ebay had about 10 of them on yesterday, and was promising to get them posted out yesterday afternoon providing the payment was made in time.

I checked his feedback today, and he was genuine as people have received the game from him already and left him positive feedback.

Think he was charging £34.95 for the game plus about £3 shipping..

Got mine on order from Game.co.uk for about £32 delivered, they have always delivered new releases 1 day before the official release date in the past.

how did you manage to get it for £32 batman??

I've just looked on the game website and its showing as £39.99.

Did you use a code or something??

Used the £3 off code MODGAMER and then used Quidco (11%) so about another £4 off, if you have a reward card then you will get another £2 reward points.

"Q: Are shipments Liable To Import Tax & Duty?

A: Yes as a rule all items over £18 in value are liable for Customs Tax & Duty.
Customers of this site are responsible for paying local countries import taxes / duty and are none refundable by us."

Good deal, but I would go with Batman's for peace of mind.

Seems like online is going to be region locked

I have mine pre-ordered for £31.93 from The Hut, only 1 week to go :w00t:

Yes, that seems like a better deal. £32 is a good price for a PS3 exclusive game that has been rated very highly by the press but as someone else mentioned about Movietyme, they are very very slow to deliver the goods.

I once ordered 4 items at once from them, 1 of them, which was in stock took 3 weeks to arrive.

So personally I would go with other sites if the price is the same or even a little more.

Choices (online) and Blockbusters (instore) have this fort preorder for under £35 -

I may cancel my Hut pre-order and grab ot from Blockbusters as I have £26 credit.

Gosh, Ive just read the rumours that this game will have very long cutscenes up to 90 minutes long.

Apparantly the reviewers have been told not to mention this or the loading times in there reviews.

I cant hack a 90 minute cutscene like.

5% cashback from Choices for using Quidco too, bringing their price down to £32.76 delivered.

Never used Choices before??? so does anyone know what their delivery times are like.
