There's an omnibus version containing all three. You might find that cheaper.

Hopefully these will stay unaffected by whatever that drove TGC to stop shipping to Germany...

free shipping helps. plus day-before-release delivery with UK versions. almost too good to be true these days.

55€ for FFXV
60€ for the Last Guardian
45€ for Vita games (wtf)

I used Coolshop when the GBP was really high, since buying in € was cheaper during that time, but nowadays they are really expensive in comparison to most UK shops.

Uncharted 4 currently on sale on the psn store for £25.74 including + discount. If you buy £25 credit from cdkeys, the game works out to just under £22 if my maths is correct.

Is that likely to be the cheapest price this year?

Does the psn store allow you to use two different methods of payment ? If I top up £25 can I use paypal to pay an extra 74p ?

Pretty sure I've done that before, although I think there is a min top-up of £5.

No at the same time, I mean if you top up, It should be in chunks of $5, but if you buy the thing directly with paypal it will charge you the xx.75p (except if it's less than $5) or that is how it used to work, I don't know if they changed the rules.

extra 5 =(, if you go to the support chat and explain them the situation they may give you a 5% discount or something, so you don't have to top up, it worked twice for me with thing like that that where less than 1 =).

(I think the chat is only NA, so you'll have to call them maybe?)

Just got a message from SimplyGames telling me that my copy of Rise of the Tomb Raider for PS4 has been already shipped. This is almost a week ahead release date (11th October)

Has anyone who pre-ordered the game got the same message?

You can preorder on Amazon.it (it's 59 euro) but I'm not sure when they'll dispatch the item because there is a warning that say that due to high demand they can't guarantee to ship the orders at launch day.

Just to let you guys know, I phoned Sony and they said you can use two separate payment options, and it worked for me! Only took the extra 74p from Paypal.

Shopping for broadband is such a joke. I'm still having to do ridiculous math to find out the cheapest deal.

I waste my time shopping around, call up TalkTalk and they're like okay okay £28.75, unlimited fibre, unlimited calls and line rental. Down from the £50.45 they wanted. For those of you without TV packages what are you paying for fibre?

I moved into a place at the start of February and ordered Virgin fibre and then had a few weeks of them dicking around getting permission from my landlord and then another few weeks before the install date. Then they cancelled 3 days before they were due to install and now I have ADSL through BT (which, has thankfully been pretty good for DSL and close to the theoretical max). It's still not fibre, though.

One of my previous ISPs was the infamous Comcast in the US and they weren't as shit as Virgin.

I had Virgin as a student and.. eh they were great one year. Then they swapped our modem and it went to shit at 3.30pm every day. I figured bandwidth management kicked in around the time the kids got in on that particular modem. Wouldn't be against trying them again but I'd definitely cancel if they had noticeable management.

I pay something like £19.85 (loyal customer discount) for BT Infinity 2 (78MB), unlimited. Plus £18.99 phone line rental.

BT is reliable once you get past the customer service aspect,Virgin Media is fastest if you can get the 100mb/s or 300mb/s upgrade option. £18.99/17.99 line rental is standard, it depends on what you want to pay extra on top of that.

What you need realise though is that all UK ISPs use the same engineers.

Square Enix games do tend to get very cheap very quickly, but this might be an exception. Since we know this will be one of the few 4K games on PS4 Pro, people are buying it just to have it ready for that.

Might not go very cheap before that.

Since they are banned, I just ordered on Game UK instead. Game UK is also responsible for the official Nintendo UK store, right? So they should be somewhat safe?
