    lol i know how expensive games are in Lithuania, i have a old friend from there, i am not sure where you can get games shipped to your country, perhaps try import games websites.

    well I bought army of two Asian version then I got double pwnd region lock and no pal support (I thought they are region free ) but some games weren't [​IMG] so I need some reliable site for importing a game to my country at least.
    by the way games cost here 40% more then paying for the game + paying importing fee around 21$ and were not getting new games.

    I use eBay, more and more, for my imports.

    Usually getting them very cheap, and in a week, or less, from Hong Kong or the US.

    Just make sure that whoever you buy from, that they will put down a lower value on the customs sticker, so you wont get hit for customs fees ... if they will also mark the item as a gift, all the better.

    Sellers who are too honest, can end up costing you more money lol

    Plenty of eBay sellers take pre-orders.

    Wont take long to find what you are looking for on eBay ... just search by name of game, system, and certain keywords ... for example, say you are looking for GTAIV on the PS3, to pre-order ... just enter the following into the search box ...


    GTA IV PS3 pre

    play asia is good, they actually have a guide on their website showing games which have no region locking, and are reliable. Ever considered cdwow? I think they ship everywhere also, they used to be reliable, but haven't used them for a number of months now.

    cd-wow are not as good as they used to be ... their selection gets weaker all the time ... play-asia is good, but not for everything.

    Emailing people who have things you want is always good ... you can often talk people who wont ship to your area into it lol
