Game was so far the one place we all went to for PAL imports. But i think ShopTo actually turns out the cheaper and better option. Here's why

1. ShopTo has some great discounts and cheap weekly specials. Game's prices are often very close to MRP.
3. Game parcels have started attracting customs duties.
4. Game charges a little more for shippping. But ShopTo shipping amount multiplies with each additional item, Game's doesnt
5. ShopTo does not include an invoice or any indication of the price anywhere on the parcel so even if customs open your parcel (which they havent for me), they have no way of knowing the value, hence no duties.
6. Both Game and ShopTo offer a very basic form of tracking via the RoyalMail website

My personal experience with ShopTo

1. PES 2008 for PS3
Had preordered it. It reached me the day after the release date (2 days after dispatch). This had to be by accident because people in the UK who had also prordered the game got it after me. No customs duty

2. Kane & Lynch for PS3 (dirt cheap on a Weekly Special offer)
Ordered it on Feb 5, dispatched on Feb 6. Delivered on Feb 20. No customs duty.

It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.

The Euro/Pound thing is for display preference only. The price remains the same.

The weekly specials are usually priced between 14 to 25 euros if I'm not wrong.
