    Simple but possibly stupid question - will the console come with an "English" language setting? and will the preloaded game only be in French or English as well?

    Any other differences I need to know about - its £100 cheaper than the UK version

    Thanks

    All EU games have all language options.
    UK is very multicultural now a lot of people living in UK cant speak let alone read English.

    Yes but UK customs seems to target Amazon packages.
    Here's to hoping

    No it incurs french TVA tax which is inclusive in the price which means its cleared into the EU so customs cannot charge for what is basically a "Free Trade" item. They should only charge you if its coming from one of the EU Special territories (which includes Jersey and Guernsey).

    Shipment is now with Hermes UK :-)
