    Was just wondering where people are going to order the US version of Resident Evil 4 from as there are only a few weeks to go until it is release and I dont want to get it from DVDSoon as I am sure it will arrive with customs charges but apart from them I dont know where to look so would be interested to hear where other people are planning to get it from.

    I've ordered from Play-Asia.com about a month ago, I've chosen EMS courier shipment which is an extra £12 but the whole order still comes to less than £40. This way I'll have the game delivered in time for the weekend folowing release, I can't wait for it, looks unbelievably good.

    Thanks for the posts.

    Think I will go with Play-Asia with the normal shipping option as the last DVD I ordered from them with normal shipping arrived in less than a week so hopefully the same will be true this time.

    One question though, does anyone know if Play-Asia are customs friendly or not as I dont want to recieve the game and a £9.00 customs bill ?

    It is indeed great. Well, on the basis of the demo I have (came with Famitsu Capcom special mag). Have had mine ordered from dvdsoon for a couple of month or 2 now. Bit cheeky that they take payment when you pre-order. Also, (unlike every other online shop), if you cancel they give you store credit. Every other site only takes payment when the item ships. Still, they are cheap, extremely reliable, and used to mark down the value of goods. Having ordered some 30+ times and having never paid import tax, I'm reasonably confident I won't be paying this time (touch wood).

    However, I've bought an XBox a month ago and have been buying a load of 2nd hand games cheap. What with getting PES4 and MP2 for xmas, I'm happy to wait for RE4 now.

    Can't wait for this to arrive. My pick for Game Of The Year already :laugh: IMO there is nothing on the horizon that can beat this game's atmosphere and style, certainly in the survival horror genre.

    Dunno, there's the new Zelda game out mid 2005. Possibly Mario 128 late 2005. :)

    Mario 128 seems a bit doubtful, but I'm definitely with you on Zelda - that could turn out to be one of the greatest games ever.

    Apparantly Mario 128 will be a GC game, just no one knows when it wil be released. If it's as revolutionary as Nintendo claim, perhaps around the XBox 2 launch!? Maybe....

    Unfortunately for PS2 owners, it won't be out on PS2 until the end of next year, and IIRC, it hasn't actually been confirmed for release over here at all.

    Dvdsoon still haven't shipped mine. Should have shipped by now considering I pre-ordered Nov 4th. Especially as they took payment then! Rather than on delivery. :mad:

    I've seen both dates. 12th and the 11th posted on sites and in mags. I had thought that the 11th was the USA date, and the 12th for Canada.

    Dvdsoon were packaging mine yesterday, so it should be posting today. A day after it's release. Considering I live in the UK, you would have thought they'd have posted it early so that I would get it on or near release day. That's what Play.com do when I've pre-ordered from them. Sometimes I'll even get a game on a Sat, 2 days before it's official Mon release. I won't be getting RE4 til at least a week after it's release.

    Out of interest, how much was the US Gamecube? as you can get a UK one for about £40 and a copy of Freeloader for £10.
