    I personally went for one of a reputable ebay seller. Other than that look at Expansys or Lik-Sang, Play-Asia or Yes Asia. The two asian sites will take a little longer to deliver though. Avoid the likes of DVD Box office & DVD Soon. Video Games Plus seem to have been shipping them out though so they may be worth a try.

    Yeah I eventually went with eBay. Make sure you get one from a seller that already has it in the country. Not only will this make it quicker to get to you, but you also won't have to pay custom charges.

    If you buy from eBay before you bid make sure you ask the seller if you can collect the PSP and also ask for their address even if you can't collect it. This will show whether the item is actually in the UK and you'll have the sellers address if anything goes wrong. I learnt the hard way and lost £235 to a conman. Luckily I got their address and am taking them to court.

    I went for a honk kong based one but prior to ordering I emailed a few previous customers. All had received their PSP's quickly and had no customs to pay as the iPSP's were marked down as a toy & a gift.

    yep that is correct I ordered mine from them earlier with tony hawks remix, ridge racer and some cleaning cloth thingies. the total came to £209 plus £35 postage.

    I have ordered from them before and considering they are based over the pond the delivery was fast enough about 4 days.

    If you want the Spiderman UMD film you will have to go for a US unit and one of the first 1 million US retail units that had the copy included free. UK EBay sellers wont have any stock of thse as they were only released in the states Last Thursday !

    I went for a reputable ebay seller in the states. He has a rating of 12,000 plus, he shipped it as gift with a nominal value to try and avoid customs. It was shipped same day I paid for it and has provided a tracking number.

    Its currently in transit :)

    I paid £185 shipped registered insured for the US value pack with Spiderman 2 umd.

    As far as i'm aware the same problem that has affected DVD Soon. In Canada they have only had the Gretsky Pack released to people who have ordered a non Gretsky pack have bought a product that (by all reports) doesn't exist in Canada.

    I haven't personally ordered from DVD BO but the only company that i've heard of that's found a solution is VG+. They received a small amount of normal packs & the rest (& all future packs) are all Gretsky's. They have therefore offered customers the chance to upgrade their orders (at extra cost) to get the Gretsky packs.

    I'm not sure what DVD BO are doing as i've personally not ordered from them but it may be worth you contacting them to see what the situation is.

    I think its confirmed now that US PSP games will work on a JPN PSP and vis versa.

    As for VG+ I pre-ordered Wipeout Pure from them and it shipped last Monday, should hopefully arrive tomorrow and I was told before I ordered it that it would be marked as a Gift with a value of $20 so customs shouldnt be a problem.
