That sucks for UK gamers. What I don't get is if $60 is £32 then why do they say it will be £50? I have more respect for UK gamers if they pay that much more than US gamers.

That is the how much we should pay if we lived in a fair world, but we have to pay £50 retail price :mad:

I just did a little calculating and £50 is $93.2249! As a little compensation the UK has better sports, Doctor Who, and beautiful scenery. Wouldn't it be cheaper to import US games seeing how they are region free?

Yea But Doctor Who comes back in december plus you get a whole season before us. I ended up download every episode and had to watch them on my computer.

Plus a ton of the non-MS games are region free and i bet test drive will be too if you want it enough.

yea that is why there is a magical kingdom. where you can buy anything you want for a mere fraction of the price. and this magical palace is known as www.ebay.com .
if your in the UK just buy from a US seller. its insanely cheaper than buying from a UK seller. Although the shipping will prolly be a little more expensive, its still worth it.

Thats only a 4 month difference. Doctor who is on a 1 year delay, and in my opinion is a much better show than lost.

i think lost is pretty cool. really confusing though, especially if you miss an episode.

If you watch BBC in the states you get it pretty much the same time as us- like Top Gear etc is 2 weeks behind.

Stuff like SCrubs were approx 18 months behind, same with most other shows.

And Lost is in a different league to Doctor Who

Yeah, Lost is awesome! Somehow they've still kept it interesting, although there is not that much to do on an island for another series
