I decided I wanted this but I can't find it on the dvd.uk.co site. Does anyone have a direct link?

It isn't there anymore. I'm guessing it is on backorder so they took it off the site. Just keep checking.

Nevermind, it is there but strangely if you search for Prince of Persia it only comes up with the remake one that came out a few years ago, but if you go to ps3/adventure games it's on the first page

Here's the link in case anyone is curious

http://www.dvd.co.uk...y-in-hd-ps3.htm

Shows in stock too :)

As an alternative, I picked up a copy from Ebay seller shopto_outlet. About $34 shipped. Not bad. Seems to have a good rep. I got a shipping confirmation within 48 hours. Haven't received it yet though.

nothing yet, and mine shipped the 8th..

i'm starting to worry cause i needed it for a xmas gift. has anyone else received theirs yet from dvd.co.uk? thanks


Well let's see

Mine shipped out 11/29. I got it 12/14, so a couple days over two weeks.

Ok, that eases my mind a bit. I ordered mine on 12/03 I think and it shipped 12/08 but I have yet to receive it. Hopefully it arrives in the next few days. I'm not in any hurry I just don't want it to get get lost.

I'm waiting on an item I ordered from Amazon.co.uk that dispatched (shipped) on 12/02/10 and it hasn't arrived yet. Apparently, that whole area is in the middle of bad weather off an on for a while and it's delaying shipments.

Here's the direct link:

http://www.shopto.net/PS3/SALE/PS3PR14-Prince%20of%20Persia%20Trilogy%20HD%203D.html

Right now, it's available for 15.85 BP. I can't remember what shipping will be to NA, but I don't think it's too bad. I've just finished the registration process (requires credit/debit card verification), so I'm going to put my order in and update with the shipping cost.

UPDATE: It's on sale right now @ Shopto.net, so get it now while the gettin's good. I paid 15.85+2.50 Int'l Royal Air Mail, so 18.35 BPS or $29.11 USD according to the PayPal conversion rate.

In for one at that price. $29 is a damn good deal for an international exclusive.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I ordered from dvd.co.uk and it is "In Dispatch" and my card has been charged. I assume that means it's been shipped and I should receive it in the next week or 2.

Does anyone know if there is a surcharge for using a US credit card?(I.e. will visa charge you more money for buying something from dvd.co.uk?)

I used a MasterCard and was charged some kind of weird fee. It was a little less than $2.

Ok.

I decided to send them an e-mail. Three weeks is a bit absurd.

Will do.

According to their policy it says that if you don't receive your item in 14 days that they will issue a refund or ship you another one and THEY will go after Royal Air Mail for compensation. Of course I would imagine that is only with shipments inside the UK.

Was this fee you mention a separate transaction? If so, I think it's a verification charge from the host site, which is standard for orders that will be shipping overseas. I used my CC at Shopto.net and was charged $1.04 so they could verify it, then the charge was reversed the next business day.

Hi,

We can not class your order as lost until 25 working days have expired. When this time span has ended and you still do not have your order please Email us and we will be glad to help.

Kind regards,
Jason B

This is the e-mail I received from them last night...

Hi

I'm very sorry that your order has not arrived yet.

Your order was dispatched by Royal Mail Airmail, TNT Post, or the most appropriate carrier for your area on 08/12/2010 from our warehouse. We advise that it normally takes 4 - 6 post working days for a delivery to arrive and most items do arrive well within this time frame, however, it can sometimes take longer.

Unfortunately we do not have an option that allows the tracking of deliveries once they are in the postal system so we cannot provide a tracking number to trace the parcel en-route. In the worst case, we can not consider a parcel lost until 25 post working days have passed, however, this does not happen very often and it is still very likely that this shipment will arrive within the 25 post working days. Please note that post working days are counted as Monday through to Saturday and exclude bank holidays.

If you have not received your order within 25 post working days from the dispatch date, please email us at help@dvd.co.uk and we will arrange for a replacement to be delivered. Please include in your statement: your order reference number, date of dispatch, the delivery address and confirmation that it is correct. You must also state that the order has not been received. We will use this email as evidence for an investigation and claim that we will make with the postal service, as well as confirmation of a lost parcel.

Please accept our apologies for this delay in your order. We find that the postal service is usually very reliable in their delivery of parcels. Some parcels do still go missing and we understand how frustrating this is. We will make sure that we arrange any replacement as quickly as possible.

Kind regards,
Vicky
Customer Services Team

a bit off topic but....a friend of mine in scotland sent me (pennsylvania) a package around the middle of last month that i still havent received. i thought maybe it was lost since it normally doesnt take this long to get something from him, but seeing that all of your games took forever, maybe my package will eventually arrive
