So I just renewed my giantbomb subscription and got a 15$ coupon, so I check out their store see a shirt that I like and is 15$, I put it in my basket go to the checkout fill out my information and click continue. Now I end up on the payment page, and I'm shocked to see that the total price has now gone up to 64$, because it added the international shipping fee.
Now I get that international shipping will cost me some money, but 49$ is not what I had in mind. I've ordered and bought stuff from countries like the US, Japan and china before. and usualy shipping fees are anywhere in between 10-20$. Heck, I've even ordered shirts from US based stores and they only had a shipping fee of 6-7$.
I really think Giantbomb should add some other options for international shipping that are not fed-ex. Because 49$ is just batshit insane, it's nearly the price of a 1-year subscription to their website.
edit: It seems I was too quick in my judgement, I went through the process of filling out my information 2 more times and on the third try it gave me more then just one shipping option. The cheapest one for me was through USPS and was about 17$ which is not to bad. So I guess this post can be removed as it's pointless now.
For the most part I would like to see new IP's, though I would not be opposed to a new Medievil game. A game like Uncharted would also be welcome, as long as it's a new setting with different characters. Maybe as someone said before something based on blade runner, or something steam punkish.
I don't really mind the alck of backwards compatibility, I just hope that in the future I can play the ps1 and ps2 games that I bought on psn, and possibly even the psn titles. The only annoyance about all this is the fact that I lack the room to have all my consoles out in the open, so I have to find a place to store them. Having to get them out, and getting them set up when I feel like playing a ps1/2 or a ps3 game, is just a hassle.
