View Full Version : Import GH3 to Sweden?

10-29-2007, 06:46 PM

I refuse to wait until the release here in europe, so I've decided, or I've almost decided to buy it from USA. I need some answers before I decide to import this game from USA to Sweden.

Q1: I need some serious proof that GH3 is region free and that it will work on my "Swedish 360" (proof like links or that it worked for you).

Q2: I dont know anything about the shops in USA so I would appreciate some tips. I want the game only (CD), nice price and fast delivery.

Thanks in advance!!!

The place with the best price.. You will risk that the customs take it thou and you have to pay extra fees.
I would choose play-asia from them I think, shopped from dvdboxoffice also but long time since last time now, customs have never taken from them, but as I said long time since my last order from there.

http://www.egamia.com/wiki/Region_Free_Xbox_360_Games (http://www.egamia.com/wiki/Region_Free_Xbox_360_Games[/font]) that place list region-free games, but it's not that fast on updates. Know of one place that’s better but that’s for download releases so don't want to post it here.

But anyway GH3 is region free I'm sure, play-asia http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-dw-49-en-70-2c1y.html (http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-dw-49-en-70-2c1y.html) list is as "No Region Protection" also.

That guide was pretty good, well if it had a search or something to jump forward it would have been better but ah play-asia ftw! And even if the customs take it will be cheaper then buying from Sweden so :p

Allright! Should I order from US or Asia?

10-29-2007, 08:15 PM
Don't think that matters so much, both are outside EU so both risk to get stuck in customs.

Both have english language also, the box cover seems to be the same also. But guess manual and so can be in Japanese in the Asia version.

Ok. I'll order the US one then. Tack!! :)

Edit: Why would the customs stop a game?

Not stop, just add tax and so.

Umm ok. Thanks a lot!

yeah this happened to me when i shipped a few hd-dvds from the states, i had to pay about 20 tax just to get them which kinda sucked, but i still saved quite a bit than if i'd got them from the u.k. :P
