Games like Gears of War 2, Left 4 Dead etc are going for about £28 on renchi.com, my only concern is can i trust the website. Has anyone on here bought from there before? Good experience?

There are a few things you have to consider before buying stuff from Renchi.com:

1. They are based in Hong Kong, so expensive postage and customs/tax may apply.:thumbsdow
2. They specialise in import games, and most of the cheap games are NTSC (either Japan or US) and not all of those are region-free, i.e. they won't work on your console. :thumbsdow

Long story short: I would go for a UK dealer instead and pay the extra 5-10 quid or use a site like play-asia.com to check the compatibility before buying an import game. Play-asia.com is actually a quite nice site in general - I used them when I bought the US version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl (months before the EU release), and they were very good.:thumbsup:

^Good advise there, as for renchi, they've been about for a good number of years and as far as I'm aware are reputable enough. I also tend to use playasia most of the time though, either them or videogamesplus(who are baed in Canada), both very good from my experience.

A fairly new site(or I think it is anyway) that caught my eye for region-free games is gamehubs(again based in Asia), good prices and free worldwide delivery. I haven't used them as yet but the site appears to be well run and I like the fact you can view customer feeback and ask questions in the Live Chat section. They also seem to get region-lock information way ahead of playasia & videogamesplus(haven't seen them make a mistake yet).

[EDIT]By the way, I doubt Left 4 Dead will be region-free as it's on EA(most EA games are region-locked), gamehubs are advertising Gears of War 2 as region-free(price = $49.90 delivered) though so that's likely a good bet.

gamehubs - Nice looking site but I don't seem to be able to see their physical address or contact info anywhere, how do you know they are based in asia? I can see PA's and renchi's.
