    I stay in Australia and was wondering where you guys buy your games from so far I have three games and I have bought them from JB-HIFI as it was cheaper than sony, Eb games and big W. the prices and the games are

    Assassins Creed - $100 Aud
    COD4- $100 Aud
    guitar hero3-$139 Aud with the guitar

    I want to buy uncharted which was of $79 Aud and now its $109 Aud? the prices are rising of good games in australia well atleast in JB-HIFI, Eb games, Sony.
    any advice for where to buy games would be apreciated

    I was wondering this myself. I live in the US and have no objections to buying used games but I haven't seen the cheap prices that we are used to. The PS3 as been out for well over a year now...where are the $19.99 games? Where do you buy your games?

    £9.99?! That'd be a dream, an amazing dream, but still a dream :/

    That'll never happen, at least here in the UK, in the shops the cheapest you ever see (in the sales etc.) is £17.99. The newest games are always £34.99 or above (RRP is £49.99 for most), eBay is the only place we ever see anything cheaper than £15.

    lemnur i know how you feel, we get ripped here in Aus. I stopped buying games locally (unless their on special) and now import my games from playasia. You'll save bout $20 to $30 depending on the game, not a bad option if you don't mind waiting bout a week for the games to get delivered.

    yep, the games are new, just Google "play-asia" it'll be the first result. All they do is sell the games from the US or asia were the prices are a lot lower then Australia, I've bought most of my games from them, never had any problems. The PS3 games are region free so they work on an Aussie ps3 no problems. For example COD4 and Unchartered are both going for $75 now, alright saving compared to here for $100 to $109. As i said it's pretty good if you don't mind waiting about a week for delivery, you can also then get games same time as they're released in the US instead of waiting months for the AUS release.
