    Yes I bought my Premium in Austria a month or so ago with the sole intention of bringing it back to England. There wasn't a problem with shortages out there. In fact they have the German version of the console, which is the exact same mainland Europe packed console that goes to all the main European countries including the UK.

    So yes UK games work fine, only thing you need to do is change the plug or just buy a Europe to UK adaptor.

    edit:

    Just read you live in Austria in anyway, so yes just buy UK games it's fine.

    If you're in doubt and have already bought the console, buy a game in Game and you could always take it back if it doesn't work under the 10day rule!

    He is hardly going to come from Croatia to buy a game out of a Game store.
