Use borderlinx, I made a post about borderlinx earlier in the thread last month detailing how to get it done
edit, I have not got an email from amazon uk just yet, asking me to cancel or update my addy, but I will definitely use borderlinx if and when I do. Seems like an ideal workaround for cases like this, it looks like they charge about 10 bucks as a handling fee, and we would pay the actual shipping charges for the second shipment, maybe 15 bucks all together to make sure you that your pre order goes through.
I am sorry you had your order cancelled, I was able to change mine in time to my borderlinx address. The amazon UK standard shipping cost to anther UK address is free, but I am paying about 11 pounds in taxes(called VAT in UK), and I will pay about another 15 dollars in shipping and handling to borderlinx to ship the package to me when it arrives. Borderlinx will give me a discounted shipping code for my first purchase with them, so that is something, but all in all, I am going to be paying about 20 dollars extra than what I would be paying if I just stood in line on the day of the launch at gamestop, or best buy or whatnot, and bought a USA version for 80$US + tax. I may end up doing that as well to try to mod one of them but at least I know for sure I will be getting at least one of these consoles. I had to take extra steps, but it is worth it to me for the peace of mind, I know a lot of you ordered from amazon of UK and may be fretting that your order will get cancelled after reading about other people on here getting their orders cancelled, This is one way to make sure that it will not get cancelled.
