Yep, plenty of cheap PS3 games can be found on UK sites like CDWOW. I've used this site and others (www.dvd.co.uk & www.thehut.com) numerous times and will likely never purchase locally again. With free shipping, they (CDWOW) make for an even more attractive option.

LittleBigPlanet $59.95
http://www.cdwow.com...ct/view/3700006

Resistance 2 $73.95
http://www.cdwow.com...ct/view/3700008

Motorstorm 2 - Pacific Rift $61.95
http://www.cdwow.com...ct/view/3842175

Mirror's Edge $59.95
http://www.cdwow.com...ct/view/3846310

Dead Space $51.95 (This is the Game of the Year)
http://www.cdwow.com...ct/view/3500310

A lot of 6 month old games around the $30 mark too.

I ordered from the hut (360 game) 3 days ago and they are still "processing" my transaction!? DVD.CO.UK processed and dispatched a game order in one day, long story short it will take amazing prices to get me to order from the hut again.

The also charge 50% more than DVD.CO.UK for postage, hutt needs to lift their game.

I'm going to check out amazon.uk but something tells me their postage prices will be outrageous.

Not everything online is cheap, just some of the stuff they've got. BTW, I don't buy online multiplayer games like MGS4 because they have region restrictions or something. Anyways, please let us all know any good deals out there online or local. :D

Would be keen to find this out too - being an Aussie website I guess I (perhaps erroneously) assumed it was local shipping. Just bought Dead Space and Singstar Abba (presents for me and my wife respectively). I got the email confirming my order and suggesting that 'rest of world' (which is everyone but UK and US) might be waiting 7-10 days.
I've had it sent to my office address and by my count including today there are only 7 business days before Christmas!

Just slightly off-topic (sorry), can you the standard GHWT or RB (aka Logitech) mic with Singstar ABBA?

me decided today that i want to offload the pink DS i've had for almost a year and never used :rolleyes:
baby told me that eldest wants the new animal crossing game :D
here's hoping it's the DS one and not the Wii she's after ^_^
means i'm gonna have to buy another game :rolleyes:
but on the plus side, if she's willing to ' borrow ' the DS long term i finally get my white one :D :D
so now i got to hope, and start watching for a decent game bundle :lol: :lol: :lol:
so if anyone notices any bundles going with Animal Crossing or a decent RPG, you know where to find me :D

Unfortunately it MUST be the Singstar mic afaik - it doesn't recognise the GHWT mic & asks for Singstar mic...

I am in Sydney and delivery is normally under a week. CD Wow ship from Hong Kong regardless of which country site you purchase from.

Unsure, BUT you can buy Singstar PS2 with mic's and it will work - Singstar PS3 SUPPORTS BC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://threespeech.c...s-compatbility/

PS2 singstar is ~half the cost of PS3 - but mics are wired not wireless...

LittleBigPlanet for 17.99 pounds plus 1 pound shipping.

With a currently pretty decent conversion rate, will cost about $45.

In UK ATM most consoles games are <30gbp & under. I know that SHOPTO.NET is currently doing Res 2, LBP & Motorstorm 2 for 19.99. What with the strong aus to the gbp there are bargains to be had

Yeah I'd bought Singstar Abba and Dead Space for a combined $92... I logged on yesterday to check my status and it said my order totalled around $130. WTF?! So I clicked on it - I paid $39.95 and $51.95 respectively. Current prices are $42.95 and $82.95!
Both have been dispatched too, so there's every chance I'll get them before Christmas thankfully. Looks like I got in just in time!

WTF?! That sucks! I paid $51.95 for it less than a week ago, then it went up to $82.95! Oh well... I suspect this is for the people that don't need it before Christmas. That's a bloody good price!
