Hey everybody,

So, I have a PS3, and a collegue of mine is visiting his friends in the US. He asked me if I wanted to order some games and let them be delivered there, so he can take them to Denmark.

Now I was wondering. What is the cheapest online store for videogames? I was looking at Amazon.com at the moment, but was wondering if there were cheaper places, since I'm a cheapskate cool

Thanks a lot, and cheers!

Check to make sure your PS3 can play games imported from the US, there could be some regional coding that prevents it.

If you know someone with a membership, Costco is the way to go. Their stock is tiny--usually only a handful of the most recently released games, but they'll undercut retail prices by $8 or so.

Otherwise, go with either Amazon (the free shipping is nice) or just buy used (GameStops are all over the place).

Are PS3 games region encoded? You may want to make sure that when you get them, you'll also be able to play them.

Thanks a lot!

PS3 games are regionfree luckily =)

Gamestops would be an option, but I don't want to let him run errands while he could be drinking beer with his friends he didn't see for so long

Cheers and thanks again!
