JJA in the UK

Does anyone know of any stores planning to sell it?
I can't find any, which is getting me very annoyed.

We used to have an EB Games UK branch, but a store called Game bought them out. Game seem to have no plans to sell it, and EB Games US (www.ebgames.com) are selling it but won't ship to the UK.

I'm really stuck here. Can anyone help?

Buyritegames don't ship to the uk, but buy.com does. I didn't check the other one.
Thank you!!!



Why is it so many US websites won't ship here? To avoid cheap imports or something?
It won't work anyway (just look at www.play.com, who specifically buy R1 DVD's and ship them around the UK).

Oh in that case I guess it doesn't really matter if he can buy it or not.

I dunno about the other sites, but from what I've heard, buyritegames is evil, I've heard of lots of people never getting what they ordered from there.

Resellerratings only has one comment on them, and it is very negative.

Eek. Sounds like a company to avoid. No matter how many of them were resolved, 120 complaints is a heck of a lot.

Well, for a company that does that much business, it's not, really. But still, I'm not dissagreeing.

I guess so, but I've looked at reports for many, many companies, and that's the most complaints I've ever seen.

So have I, and it's not for me (;

Oh well. I think we agree that this is not a good company to buy from.

Yes. Sorry - I'm argumentitive today. ;-P

Regardless of how much that is, an unsatisfactory record is an unsatisfactory record. It would be best to buy it elsewhere.

Not only is JJGBA a pretty messed up console game. It isn't even published in Europe at all, as far as i can see.

Has anyone seen it in a European store or webstore?
Shipping from the US is horribly expensive. Not that i will buy it (don't even have this console thing), just wondering.
