    My old goto site www.gamescafe.com.au for price searches has turned to shit. It used to cover like 50+ stores, now it's like 5 in a poorly made layout?

    Anyway... OzGameshop for about $57, other UK retailers for about $60-65.

    As for the special editions. www.mightyape.com.au have the Ellie or Joel editions for ~$90 with a free tshirt thrown in.

    Add it to your cart, go to complete checkout, and see what happens.

    They remove VAT.

    or you could just purchase from dvd.co.uk who are cheaper like I said :cool:

    the same as all the other UK websites, anywhere between 1-2 weeks is the norm, sometimes less.

    From what I've been reading, the reviews aren't just "OMGBBQ Bro, Naughty Dog is the bomb, 99/10 for Last of Us bro".

    It seems like ND have actually done a solid game this time, which can't properly be compared to anything else as it's a new IP

    A lot of people said that about Bioshock Infinite, which I found to be a little less than impressive. A solid 7/10 (Would be 8/10 if I didn't suffer game breaking crashes). But naughty dog usually blow an experience out of the water... Uncharted 2 is hands down the best game of this generation... not the prettiest, but an epic journey.

    Agreed.
    I havent played Bioshock infinite yet, but Mark Serrels (of Kotaku) said that this is the Bioshock Infinite of this generation.

    I've been impressed with everything Naughty Dog have done this gen, loved the Uncharted series and this appears to have topped it

    Hate buying console games so close to release as they are so freakin expensive, but may have to make an exception

    Only got a 7.5. Should I read other reviews to get another perspective?

    I know for sure i'm getting the art book for this game, the world they have created just looks beautiful. I'm actually as excited for the book as the game haha art nerd.
