I really would like to get my hands on a copy of MUD FIM Motocross as well as probably a couple of other games that are PAL and region free if the price is right.

What is a good online retailer which ships to the USA that could help my find what Im looking for?

Also, is there a list of region free games on here somewhere?


Thanks!

Ebay or Amazon is probably your best bet.

www.play-asia.com

They are a reliable retailer from Hong Kong, and they ship games worldwide. You can find many PAL, NTSC-J and NTSC-U games there.

Following this link (http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-14-71-fc-49-en.html), you can find all region-free games they have, and also choose games from other regions in the menu on the left.

Thanks for the info Bistric!



Im left with one more question. If a game says Europe No Region Protection and Ive already played the NTSC version I can play this new european region free version and earn a whole new set of 1000 gamerscore?

Not sure about your new question. But I recommend Zavvi for PAL imports.

Not all games from different regions stack,the list merely informs you which you can play from different regions/PC which will give you gamerscore as another game on your card.

And if you're trying to get PAL games, try making friends with someone in the UK and get them to ship games over to you :P

The spines on the artwork are different with pal and ntsc, ntsc ones look alot better

Yes easiest way would be someone who ships them, because the shipping from EU to US is fücking expensive.
Add me, we can figure something out.

I've used Play-Asia before, and can say that they are top class for service. What GTA 4 came out, I got it £24 new and sealed including p+p. I didn't like it but later sold it for £33 on ebay. Profit ftw.

UK based, but brilliant service. They specialise in shipping to Australia, but will ship worldwide. Unsure of postage to US, but to Australia its free.
