    It will depend on these factors:-

    Price in US (more to the point price charged by companies that are willing to ship to the UK)
    Release date in US and UK

    Usually people go for an import console if they can't wait the 6 or 12 months it takes to come out in the UK. In this case it would seem that it's going to be a simultaneous release so there's less incentive to get the US version anyway. Assuming it's priced aggressively in the UK I doubt it will work out that much cheaper to import, especially considering import prices at launch (and this will be near Xmas so it's going to be in demand) are usually extortionate anyway.
    I'll wait and see what happens for now to be honest, preorder it at gamestation or somewhere in the UK, you can always cancel when the firm details are released if you change your mind.

    Cheers
    Andy
