Help? Need someone in the UK...  
I need to order a Fullmetal Alchemist game from the UK, but Amazon.co.uk doesn't ship to the US.

Can anyone purchase it for me and ship it to me? You will be fully reimbursed (and probably + commission). I'd prefer you had feedback somewhere. ^^

Any help is much appreciated!
PS
The game is not that expensive... I'd estimate around $20-$25 USD before shipping.


Okay, I found one on Ebay that's German/English for $27. It's not the regular, I guess... normal Europe edition, but it has an english manual and text, so it works! But if anyone is still willing to help me order the one I found, it would be much appreciated to not have one with a bunch of German mixed in. ;)

Thank you all ^^

What game are you trying to purchase??

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood for PSP. The UK has an english version. I believe its a fighting game. I can only find it on Amazon.co.uk. The few I found on Ebay were twice the amount.

I'm just confused on why it won't ship to the US because I've had to purchase audiobooks from amazon.co.uk...and I'm in Texas.

It could just be that specific product that doesn't ship to the US. I've had that issue with Amazon.com items not shipping to Canada.

I had the issue with Audible telling me that I can't purchase certain audiobooks because they are not available in the U.S....but then I go and buy them from Amazon.co.uk and never had a problem. *facepalm*

Then again, I purchased from a marketplace seller because they were old audio books on tape. Though the game in question is sold by individual sellers as well with international shipping quotes listed.

I really hope someone can help me out. I signed in w/my account on .co.uk and chose my address (in the US) and it said it couldn't ship to me even though the seller, IIRC, could. :( I'm just so bummed!

:( That does suck. Hopefully, we have some UK fans here though that would be willing to help. :)

Try contacting the seller directly? Maybe you can work something out that's not through Amazon.

Because Amazon doesn't ship video games across countries. It's kinda illegal, but people do it anyway.

does the manufacturer have a US distributor?

With shipping and everything from the UK to US don't you think it'd end up coming out to close to twice the amount anyway? I'll be moving to the UK at the end of the month so I could probably help you out if you don't get a response but I'm just thinking with shipping + the conversion rate its going to end up costing you $40 or more. :(

Well, on the listing I found, the game was only $20ish and the shipping was about $10ish... The other one I found was $42+shipping... so its closer to $50-$55

If I don't find anyone else or another way, would you be willing to?

Sorry I just now saw your other message. Yeah that shouldnt be a problem. Just PM me at the end of the month/beginning of October if you could to remind me about it. :)
