A little help needed

#1 Posted by BreatheEasy (144 posts) -

Hey, I'm from the UK and I'm looking to take advantage of the region free capabilities of the PS3. Does any of you guys from the US have any good, reliable, cheap sites I can ship PS3 games from over to here?

Thanks in advance.

Not really sure on cheap US sites, but Play-Asia is usually pretty cheap.

Yep. A lot of the time you will have to pay shipping, so the price may equal out to what it is in the UK. But yeah, Play-Asia is a reliable site and has almost everything on it.

Amazon has free shipping on a lot of orders over $25, but that may only be for the US. I am not exactly sure, but it could be worth a shot.

Unfortunately, that free shipping does have a price: a loooooong-ass wait time. It can take up to a week to get your package shipped, then equally long to get it delivered. I say just pay the damn one or two-day business shipping cost, and be done with it.

I'm in the UK and I use Videogamesplus.ca to import it's a Canadian site and the customer service is great, every game i have ordered from them took only 3 days to arrive which is great seeing as most UK based sites take the same amount of time,  you do have to pay shipping though , i Usually use them if a game is released in the U.S weeks or months before the UK rather than the cost.

Nah, for Amazon Canada at least - it takes a few days to be processed and is usually sent the next business day. So if you order something Monday, you have a good chance of getting it Thursday or Friday. At least that's what it's like for me, I order a lot of stuff from them.

I doubt the shipping would be free if you live outside Canada for Amazon.ca or live outside the US for Amazon.com. You would probably have to pay a ship charge, and it would take a bit longer to ship out as you said.
