    I was reading on videogamesplus.ca and playasia.com that the US version is region-free, nothing is confirmed about the asian version yet as far as I can see.

    I was going to import from videogameplus for £39, until I found out the postage is about a fiver. Certainly more than I'd want to pay.

    Ideally I'd like it for about £35 delivered. I'm assuming other 360 gamers here are considering importing as well, where are you getting from?

    I checked movietyme.com and only see the PS3 version listed on that site.

    Littlewoods have it for pre order, surely you can use the £15 off £25 spend to order it?

    I got mine from a seller on eBay for £33.99 delivered, probaley your best bet for paying the price you want with no risk of customs.

    When I ordered it had a dispatch date of 16th June and now his new auction is listing 22nd June so I am hoping my order was from the first batch he is getting and his auction now is for another batch.

    Just to add, I ordered from gamehubs.com who are doing it for £31.99 with free shipping. Might take a while though. I spent an extra £5 to upgrade the shipping to UPS 2-3 days so only £37 and hopefully here by the end of the week.

    Will this work on a UK Xbox then with no flashing etc?

    Will MS kick you off live if they see you playing this early as its not released here till later this year?

    It will work fine on a regular 360. Think like multiregion DVD etc. MS shouldn't boot you either. I have an NTSC-J version of gears of war 1 which is region free and I play online and in co-op with friends with different versions and it works fine. This'll likely be the same.

    Yes its region free and you wont have any trouble playing this as I have been playing US and Asian releases on my 360 for years, some of them before the UK release.

    Got a response from the guy I got my copy from, says he should be instock the 16th so might have this in just afew days :)

    Have you used this website before?

    Also, looks like we're getting the best version! I was going to buy it on PS3 until I saw this!

    I was gonna get the PS3 version, however the IGN review states that the 360 is superior and the 4gb install sucks ... i hadnt seen it on LensofTruth despite checking daily, thanks for the heads up (although i disagreed with their UFC comparison :rolleyes:).

    EDIT: Wow thats quite a serious comparison. No arguing there that the PS3 versions is vastly inferior.

    Nice one ... for you LOL. The reason i went for gamepit is because he stated shipment due on the 19th on his product description, whereas PLAYuk states 22nd. Oh well, cest la vie :rolleyes:

    Last week PlayUK was listing the 16th, think he must have sold all his first shipment and the listing now must be for his second batch.

    There are places offering the UK release for less than that but you will be waiting until the end of October, importing the US release is the only way to get it on the 360 now.

    I ordered from gamehubs.com who advised they'll be getting stock on Friday. It was £31.99 and I paid an extra £5 for UPS 2-3 day delivery. They said I'll hopefully get it Monday or Tuesday.
