Off to the States for 3 months, any ideas what to buy??

Found 6th Aug 2008
Hi guys, im off to work in New York for 3 months from end of aug - end of nov. Was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations of what to buy while im out there; either will be alot cheaper or will be released over there and not here. Am i right in thinking that the ipods bought over there (apart from the chargers) will work the same over here? Will a US wii or xbox360 only play us games?
Any advice welcome!
Cheers

I have always found ipods to be about same price.
Think most electronic equipment may show slight saving but nothing major!
Clothes and shoes etc are always a lot cheaper......
Century 21 is a good clothes shop down near twin towers site

Dunkin' donuts - yum

dollars $ ?

Seriously though I have found kids toys cost in dollars what you pay in the UK in £'s designer gear & electricals can be good but need to check on compatiblity

Gap clothes, and if you want to make a killing on eBay - Gap maternity clothes which you can't get over here.

Op kids clothes are cheaper in New Jersey no sales tax BTW

buy some big boxes of reeses pieces and give them to me..pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I was just about to suggest these !

"Will a US wii or xbox360 only play us games?"

I don't think so mate, but PS3 gam,es are universal ! (Although they can only connect to their orginating regions online servers)

Hope that helps,

I always thought that but not true, it's down to the game itself...

I'm off there in November, looking to bring myself back a God of War PSP... don't forget though you can be taxed on anything over £120 odd pounds on re-entering the uk if they can prove you purchased it out there! - Chuck the tags and crumple evrything up!

Just to clarify, I think you're saying that:

a) PS games are universal
BUT
b) Depending on the game as to if you can use UK servers for online gaming

Just wanted to verfiy mate :thumbsup:
