    Try Next-Gen. Metroid Prime and others available now at £44.99 with great service to boot :).

    You can also order direct from the USA from the likes of Tronix or NCSX. Prices should be around £38 after delivery - Priority Letter Mail usually akes around 3-5 days to arrive.

    I've been using Tronix and NCSX for a long time now. Both are excellent and I've never had a problem yet :).

    Their prices can't be beaten but unfortunately (at least in my experience), their service leaves a lot to be desired. Delivery times can be many weeks unless you had your pre-orders in early.

    dont forget www.cduniverse.com

    the good thing about them is their online store mechanic is great. you can order something, get two items to ship together or seperately. cancel part of an order if you like.all online


    i am currently trying a new company i foundc alled buy rite but i dont think i am that impressed with them. back to cduniverse i think

    MOVIETYME.com are also good for the odd game. £34.99 plus free delivery. They are launching a full games section in early january

    dvdboxoffice are the cheapest by far and have free shipping i must admit i have been very lucky with them and pre orders, i ordered mario sunshine from them and received 4 days after launch, but they do tend to get very low numbers of latest games so they are prob best left for games which have been out a while, if your looking for new releases goto www.videogameadvantage.com they have big stocks of new releases and i have never been told a game was out of stock prices are good (about $45) shipping is by USPS and very competitive

    Can I use imported games on a Gameboy Advance platinum (UK model), or do I have to stick with UK retailers?

    If so where are the cheapest online retailers?

    (bit desperate to get a few GBA games to go with the console I just purchased as an Xmas present)

    You can use games from any region on your UK GBA. I doubt you will find cheaper prices than the likes of http://www.play.com (UK) though.
