I believe it will; as far as I know, the PS3 isn't region locked.

I've played Korean and EU games on my North American PS3, so I believe it will work. I don't really see the downside in pre-ordering.

As far as I know the PS3 should be region free for games. I imported a US version of Homecoming to play on my PAL PS3 when Homecoming was first released, and I had no trouble.

It will work. I imported Homecoming from the US and it worked absolutely fine on my PS3. Has the date really been pushed back for the UK again?

According to the facebook konami team the date is now 29th.
So thats kinda why im thinking of taking the plunge and ordering US verison
should get it a good week or 2 early if i preoder with amazon today how long do you reckon it would take after release date to be delivered?

Just keep in mind that if you import from the US you'll be locked into downloading DLC from the US PSN for that game. Apparently it's not that hard to make a PSN account for different regions, but it's something to keep in mind.

It depends on their shipping times. I remember when I ordered Homecoming, it took a good week to get here. But then I ordered Homecoming from a different website.
Amazon are usually quick at dispatching things for release, but to come across the Atlantic you're looking at about 5-10 days.

If its preordered will amazon dispatch before the 13th of march? Or can they only dispatch it to me after or on 13th

Since the game prices are ridiculously high in my country, I always import them from either the US or the UK and never had a problem.

Zaavi are offering this

Haha, it's me, "Pyramidbread" :D €80 is pretty steep O_O (Though how much are games usually in Euros?)

Lol good name BTW Its a small world for us silent hill fans lol

Should get it for 50 euros in gamestop on release day so paying 80 seemed crazy just for a 2week headsup.

I have to have money for the HD collection aswell over here theyll charge the full wack id say.

Normally they send things out a day before release date so they arrive on or just after their release date. But to ship to the UK you are looking at at least 5 days AFTER the US date. Maybe longer. It's hard to say with international shipping.
From what I remember, I got Homecoming a week after the US date, but like I said that was with a different website.
Also it depends what kind of shipping you get. Standard takes the longest and is up to 2 weeks. The fastest Amazon do international is 2-4 days and that costs about £15.
