1  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Question regarding importing. on: November 04, 2006, 06:30:58 PM
Seeing as I'm new to these boards I might as well introduce myself.

I'm a 18 year old male living in Belgium, Europe. I've been playing videogames ever since my brother introduced me to the NES when I was a little kid. Which in terms introduced me to the a lot of fun genres including RPGs.

Now that's done I'll explain my question.

As I said in my introduction, I'm from Europe and everyone knows that Europeans have to wait quiet a bit longer than Americans/Canadians for RPGs to arrive here...if they arrive that is...

But with the PlayStation 3 I'll be able to import my games without having to worry about region locks as far as I know. Thus my I'm kind of wondering if anyone could elaborate on the process of importing a game.

I know you just import it from a store/auction site meaning we have to pay the cost for the game + shipping costs. However I have no idea what the custom costs for 1 videogame are and if there are perhaps any other costs I'm unaware of.

Perhaps some European importers could post how much their imported games costed them (including customs + shipping costs) to see if it is actually cheaper than buying them in shops here.

Thanks =)
