I was wondering if some of our international friends could point me to a site or two in the UK that ships games to the USA. I know GoGamer here does some, but they don't always carry the latest titles. I want to get Evolution GT when it comes out, but I don't think they have a US distributor. Any help is appreciated.

Gameplay (http://www.gameplay.com/) is your best friend, they are the biggest games etailer in the UK has full catalogue of new releases every week and they will ship games worldwide include USA. :)

games.net is a UK based seller I have ordered from.

I recently ordered Call of Cthulhu from them and got it in less than a week.

I would have suggested play.com but they don't ship to the US. :(

I've personally used sendit to pick up a copy of GTR international version when it first came out (ironically, int ver wasn't released in the US for a long while)

Ironically, the shipping and handling costs and time, were about the same as ordering from most places in the US..

Don't bother with EGT. I tried it out and the game is trash. If you want a GT sim, this is not one- this is a trashy game. If you are looking for a GT arcade game, than there are other better ones out there.

EGT has a terrible damage model and there is almost no damage to it. You can rail ride to victory, the AI does some really bad stuff (if a human in a league did the stuff the AI does, that person would be barred from future racing). The sound is OK, the tires losing grip is actually pretty good. the graphics are OK, with tracks being very good but cars are not very well done and there are no in-car cam views because there is no interior car modeling.

Save your money, EGT sucks.

www.playusa.com does I think?

WIth that said www.gameplay.com is a good bet, their prices are reasonable, they have been around at least 10 years (I remember them being mail order in video games magazines), and they tend to ship pretty quickly.

I hear you. That's not too surprising. Here in Australia, ordering from overseas avoids the top two taxes, which can add up to quite a bit, the GST (Government consumption tax) and the EB tax since, EB owns 80% of the Aus market and makes no effort to provide value to customers. So you typically save 30% and often get the game early. Battlefield 2 still costs $99 (US$73) at EB, though other stores sell for much less.
