*This thread was originally for the S/E PSP LE's but due to a good amount of CAGs asking this to be an EU/UK LE thread I have decided to change it to that. We will try and post the cheapest price for these among all the UK sites that ship to the US. :D

*This thread has been transformed now to a thread for both CE's as well as games that are exclusive over in the UK/EU. :)

FAQ



UK Retailers (That ship overseas):
*Beware the dreaded Mailer! ;)



The Hut - Zavvi's Sister Site
Zavvi - Free Shipping!
game.co.uk/gamestation.co.uk - These are the same now
hmv.com - Currently down due to administrative issues. Cannot order.
shopto.net - A lot of my friends order from here in the UK. Apparently they ship really quickly too.
amazon.co.uk - At least last I read, they seem to ship PS3 games but not 360. Unless they changed that. I can't seem to find anything regarding it by clicking their help.
play.com - They ship internationally and seem to get a good share of exclusives

EU Places That Ship Overseas:
amazon.fr
amazon.de


Current Promo Codes (mostly Zavvi & The Hut):

None

They probably deserve after getting gypped out of many games in the past. Also sometimes they have to wait a LOT longer to get games than Americans.

Also the hut.com (which also does US shipping has the same price). I listed zavvi because they have always been prompt and their shipping charges overseas are not bad.


zavvi is 100% a clone of thehut (it's owned by thehut and the only differences are seriously the names and color schemes), so it really doesn't matter which site you order from ;) I use zavvi just because they're the site I've always used to look at UK import prices, but I'm guessing either is fine.

And yeah, their shipping charges are excellent for overseas buyers. It converts to around a flat $4 per item or so, and at the pre-order prices on these three LEs it came out to around 81 pounds, which is $130 if the exchange rate remains about what it is. Definitely have my pre-orders in for all three.

Wait, didn't some people complain about their condition of Demon's Souls - Black Demon edition? As I recall some of them were pretty squished upon arrival. Is there any way to make Zavvi ship in a sturdy cardboard box?

I only bought from Zavvi once, but I can vouch for their prices and shipping. I purchased Demon's Souls and it came well packaged. Now I'm tempted by this.

They basically shipped them in a flimsier version of those "boxes" Amazon uses where it's just a piece of cardboard wrapped around the item.

Mine was surprisingly OK but I'm not sure what they would have done if it was in bad shape.

Here is the amazon.co.uk listing, more expensive, and they don't have Tactics Ogre. They have some art work though.

I didn't order Demon's Souls from them but my KH: BBS LE & FFXIII LE's both came in great condition. There was a very small cut on BBS but that might have not been seen when they packed it. I suspect it was when they got them in and opened the box.


EDIT: Added Lord of Arcana to the OP as well. Forgot about it. :razz:

I think that it's likely that Lord of Arcana is going to move so few units that the LE will go on deep discount before it goes out of stock. Hence we can probably forget about that one for a while ;) (though I love that red PSP case. Why don't they do this with EVERY game?)

Regarding zavvi problems, I don't know anything about problems with Demon's Souls or any other game but let me give a word of advice to people ordering. Even though they offer international shipping, their site is poorly designed and won't let you complete your order unless you enter a UK postal code no matter what country you're from.

You pretty much have to get around this by entering any kind of text into the little box for entering your postal code as it doesn't verify that it's a valid postal code. I just entered "USA" in that box on all of my orders and they went through just fine.

I was thinking about getting the LE of Tactics Orge, but then I remembered that there's going to be DLC for it and I really don't feel like going through the hassle of setting up an EU PSN account and all that just to get it.

Yes because Paypal can't hold funds. So if you use PP they will charge you when you order.

That Tactics Ogre LE is tempting... not sure if I should jump on it now or wait for a price drop. It seems like LEs in Europe are always always limited.

I think it's more likely for Lord of Arcana. The other three games already have existing fanbases, and on top of that there's just no online coverage or hype or advertisement or anything for Arcana. It's a dark fantasy Monster Hunter clone and just not something people are going to be in a rush to buy with DQVI, Tactics Ogre, Neptunia, and others coming in a few weeks. I'm gambling on this one and hoping I can get it for the equivalent of $20 or so, just because I love PSP LEs.

What sucks is only digital PSP purchases from PSN will work with the NGH when it comes out next year, and if you get those, you miss out on all the extras that come with the UMD versions.

Oh well. I'm a game collector and will only by a digital copy if there isn't physical. I do wish the NGP was fully backwards compatible though. Maybe they'll release a little like plug in UMD drive? That would be awesomesauce.

That would be awesome but I think the days of Sony catering to owners of previous hardware is over. It began with them removing PS2 BC from PS3s, continued with the PSPGo not being able to play UMDs and will continue with the NGP still not playing UMDs. It is the sad reality...

The thing I hate about that is that my PSP will eventually wear out, and it's the only way to play my PSP library. I feel like I need to buy an extra to keep on hand. At least with Nintendo handhelds you get backwards compatibility for quite a few systems so it's not such a big deal.
