    Unbelievable but true.

    Went on to amazon.com and found this title at $10.99 (US), that's £5.90. Read further and found out that it was an import (to the USA) from Europe, in other words the version released here.

    So nipped over to amazon.co.uk to check out the price and lo and behold to us UK punters it works out at the princely sum of £15.99.

    So let's see - they go to the expense of importing it to the USA from Europe and it costs £5.90, yet on the same company's UK website the price is almost triple!

    Even with US postage added on it still works out at half the UK price. Needless to say I purchased from the US site.

    Rip-off Britain indeed!
