How are the grey markets importing games/consoles so cheap? Can we do it ourselves for personal use?

Recommended Posts

so currently games like Uncharted lost legacy are going for 1900 and persona 5 for 3000  in local grey market. I was wondering how do they get the games so cheap? are they dodging customs? are there better ways to import than playasia or Amazon.com?

as for ebay,look for sellers selling imported/cheap copies and ask if you can deal outside ebay. i wont name them here.
and for palkia, try any of the shops on the back side after entering from gate 1. skip shop 1 and 2, they have crazy high prices.

Yes they don't pay customs, that is the whole point of grey markets. :P

Plus they don't have to pay distributor margins so that too decreases the cost.

This is why you will find consoles to be almost at par with US /dubai prices( slight difference of 2-4k)
