    Prepare your butthole, though. It'd be cheaper to just buy another 3DS for this region and games for that.

    Using a credit card isn't that bad. I paid my dad cash to use his. Though I'm not sure if the rest of you have parents that trust you that much.. No offense

    I think amazon.co.uk does ship to USA, though I don't know for sure. I know that they do ship to the netherlands. and sometimes games are even the same price including shipping.

    *edit*
    and I think amazon.co.uk is reliable too unlike ebay.

    Some items yes. I know for a fact that Amazon CA won't ship video games to the US, so UK might be the same way.

    Ok ok ok

    Why the heck do you have a PAL 3DS if you are in the US? I suggest getting a NTSC-U one while you are here, and buying U games because you can read english. Europe has to wait longer for releases and shiz. If you can read english you might as well get ahead and order games from US stores. OR am i missing something.
