    As above, the cheapest place i have found is here :-

    http://www.newageconsoles.com/prod_view1.asp?ProdID=gcusconsolep

    I want a new US one from the uk because at least you get some kind of warranty and preferably a modded one but not essental but it must be US! Anyone know of a cheaper place?

    Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't be overly concerned about having a warranty. There is very little, if anything that goes wrong with consoles. I've owned them all throughout my life and not once has anything developed a fault.

    Saying that, £150 is as good a price as you could ever expect for a modded US machine so I would say go for it from New Age Consoles.

    :)

    Damn. Wish i'd have known that before having paid out £180 + £43 taxes to get mine from Lik-Sang. Mind you it is a sexy orange colour. :D

    The problem was that i ordered a US dreamcast with a mod chip so i can play all reigons, it took about 4 days to process the order even though it was in stock! but when i recieved delivery and tried to play it i found that it never had the stepdown with it which it was meant to have. I phoned them up and they sent one out to me 4 to 5 days later which i was not happy about. When i was finally able to play it i tried to play a PAL game but it never worked, so another phone call and i got them to pick it up. I finally got it back after about another week which again i was not happy about but it worked in the end. Just not very good customer service in my opinion.

    End of rant! :mad:

    Trouble is there prices pretty good so its up to you if you want to risk it, maybe it was just a one off or something.

    Thanks for that Dan,

    I ordered SMB ON Sunday evening and received it Tuesday am (Monday was a a holiday) so pleased so far. Maybe problems were a one off. I'm going to order GC from them - which is best US or Jpn (is language the only difference) as both are modded to play each others region.

    Did you try gameimporters - only difference was no stepdown trans. included in price

    How much did you pay for SMB inc. p&p? I would think that the problems i had was a one off. I think that i am going to get my GC off them too i would get the us one but i think that they are near enough the same anyway. Have you used that gameimporters? Also another one to try is www.videogameimports.com they are pretty good, my mate has brought a fair bit off them and no trouble. They have got some cheap games last time i looked and a second hand US GC for about £115?

    I got SMB for £24.99 incl. p&p (looking to buy sonic next, same price)

    I've not used gamesimport - they are based in Edinburgh - spoke to them by phone - if buying games & console they would offer discount on shipping - although del. approx 7-10 days.

    Looked at videogame imports when buying SMB - £22.99+p&p- out of stock at time - back in now though. They had US GC for £130 new, now sold.
