    Anyone seen the article on xbox-scene.com, seems you can get GRAW from play asia and it's region free and in English and costs $39.99 with $3.10 worldwide shipping! Bargain or what...

    http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-dw-49-en-70-1924.html

    I know it says at the top 'Compatible with xbox360 for Jpn/Asia systems only' but if you scroll down it shows further compatability with PAL ticked.

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    £22 inc postage. Although you go save on postage for multiple orders

    Its £22 for the first game, and then £20 for anymore you order at the same time.

    Has anyone on here bought from this seller before?

    Yeah, play-asia still looks like a good deal. Possibility of getting stung by customs I suppose but I think the chances are slim, and even if you do it should still be cheaper

    What about the risk of VAT, is it likely you'd get caught?

    I doubt it to be honest, and even if you do it should still come to < &#163;30

    But can you also get hit with custom charges as well as VAT?

    Tejstar:You don't get charged both VAT and custom charges. There'll be a final figure (depending on who delivers your game/item) which relies on the value of the item and any handling charges for courier.
    For further info look here:

    In the past, play-asia were easy to avoid customs with. However if you order from them now, chances are you WILL have to pay extra in import charges.

    Thanks themanwithapc, think I'll avoid this then. Besides I've already got GRAW and nothing else I want... yet!

    Yeah, I think GRAW is the only Asian game to be region free too. If you want a bargain, just try the LX direct thread.
