    www.videogameimports.com do the regular pack for £220 and the value pack for £250. They are based in the UK so no import charges.
    Play Asia is about £20 cheaper before postage is added. I've never bought anything that large from them before but I've never been hit for import charges on any games I've purchased from them.

    Did you have to pay any customs charges from lik-sang?

    I was going to purchase my psp from them but on their site it says they cannot guarentee that you wont pay import duties on the item and if you have to pay import duties they wont refund the amount. This put me of so I got someone to bring me one back from Japan instead

    I was also going to use lik-sang. I have used them before loads of time without any problems but the import charges would be steep on this with a few games.

    I am getting bored of waiting now but think I will wait for the US release, will end up being much cheaper.

    Import Madness seems the best deal to me. £200 but you dont get any games. I heard the US version will come with spiderman 2 movie.
    I know the movie is not that great but least it comes free with the machine.

    Spiderman 2 is a great movie ! And the street price for the basic console over there is around £104 nearly half the UK launch price. There are some brilliant bundle deals as well. Eb Games are doing pre orders for the Value Pack, one official accessory and any three games for around £220.

    Thats only £40 more than the UK value pack launch price ! If you think that games are likely to retail at around £34 and accessories £20 its a big saving really.

    Unfortunately they wont ship to the UK, so its looks like a trip over there sometime in March.

    Whoops maybe not :

    "(10) Export/Import Duties, Taxes, Brokerages Fees and Shipping

    The user is responsible for all charges or taxes regarding the shipment of their item. By ordering or using any part of this site the user accepts these terms unconditionally. It is up to the user to determine if importing these goods is allowed / legal in their country as Importmadness.com, co.uk is not responsible for opened or seized shipments at the destination country. "

    Definately going to wait for the US release.

    Do not use these W*nkers under any circumstances. They promised me no Import Charges on my DS & even put it in writing to me. I was contacted by Fedex to say that charges were indeed due & Import Madness (Based in Canada by the way) were currently under investigation by UK Customs because they fiddle the figures on the paperwork. My Invoice said that I had paid about £17.00 for my DS !

    :devil:

    Is the computer video game place a good reliable company? They are based in the UK so I should imagine I would not be charged by customs.
    I will wait for the US version because I want wipeout, metal gear acid, ridge racers and need for speed which apart from ridge racers wont be out untill us release. I get a bonous in May as well :)

    I got my value pack from this place and included free next day special delivery for £249.

    http://www.virginpulse.co.uk

    Not sure they have any in stock right now mind! They were also doing the regular pack for £200 but I can't see these on their website anymore.
