    Their shipping is insane. Even for just the two standard copies, not the limited edition, Its £19.99 (which is $27 US) to ship them to me in the US. That is literally the most expensive shipping from any company. I've got a PAL CE of Ni No Kuni being shipped to me for "Postage & Packing: £4.95" which is bound to weigh more than two vita games lol.

    NIS EU is £7 and I won't even start about 365games or Marvelous EU.

    A tenner would be fine but this is insane for shipping from EU to EU in fact.

    It would be crazy if a scalper on Ebay had a better price for it in the future. xD

    I simply don't get how all these places consider themselves "european stores" when their prices follow the uk standard that's not extensible to continental prices.

    That. 100%

    I fear for post-brexit times, actually. When we'll be paying import taxes for UK games :(

    It's been more than twice that I've had to pass on games because of this stupid and greedy policy

    Almost seems Rice don't want to bother with foreign customers by scaring them off through shipping cost. But then, why only charge me £6 for shipping to Germany, like the actual intl rates were that different?
    I cringe every time I see people use "UK" and "Europe" interchangeably. At least in our little niche of the gaming world things seem massively in favor of the UK as opposed to the rest of the continent.

    AllHasRed Though I do agree with you on the gaming front, I'm actually very bothered when people say "This will release in the UK and Europe". Like they're not part of what is officially the European continent. Like they're not (for now at least) even part of the EU? When it comes to games and all though, and they say "it comes to Europe" and it's only UK... that's different!
