    Iíll be in Paris at the end of July until the 9th August, so I could potentially redirect merch overseas for you. But last time I sent a package to the US, it was close to Ä50 (arguably, it was quite a big box).

    If youíre interested let me know and maybe we can sort something out.

    I found the head of Playstation Gear for Europe on Twitter, explaining that I'm a big WipEout fan with a location problem. I live in the USA.

    It really, really irks me how this game gets ignored by everyone here. I've been doing my part, of course. I've spent a bit over $100 for a $40 game, and I don't even have a PS4 to play it on yet! Anyway, we'll see what he says.

    All we want to do is give Sony (MORE) money after all. Why make it harder for us?

    It's not difficult to arrange international shipping to meet customer need. If they don't want to make money, then screw 'em. Take your business to RedBubble, or wherever, and let them incur the loss of potential sales.

    I've been here for this series since the first Wipeout was only pictures in a magazine, and a CG demo in a kitschy movie about hacking. Since then, Sony has done absolutely #*&%-all to see that support for the series is anywhere near equal on both sides of the pond. Between having to bend over backwards for DLC content in handhelds, having to buy a game two or three times via import to get region-specific packaging, and now seeing a UK-only giveaway for the Tigron model, it has become pretty clear that Wipeout is essentially a single-region series that releases outside of EU as more of a formality than anything.

    I just wish they wouldn't justify doing nothing over here by saying "Oh, but it doesn't sell here!". But if they put forth the same effort over here that Playstation UK does, it'd sell like crazy!

    As it is, they have nobody to blame but themselves.

    International shipping is legit murder though. I had a tiny box sent from LA and shipping it cost close to £30 on import/customs fees alone. For something the size of a friggin' USB thumbstick. Jeesh.

    They really should get their heads out their asses and just get a US-stationed facility, though, because it's dumb how many Wipeout fans there are in the states that they keep ignoring. Then again it's happened both ways for me (plenty of amazing things that have been US-only -_-), so it's not just Wipeout.


    Saying that I've got some friends in LA I might need to buy a few for. Will have to see. :/

    That's just it, they DO have a US facility! They just haven't stocked any WipEout stuff! No excuse, Sony!

    Yeah, this really sucks. They even advertised it on the US blog...

    The only option is a package forwarding service which would cost a ton.

    If you can bring yourself to trust me, I'll be in Paris end of July/until 9th August. I'd send the items to your address overseas and would only ask you to send me the price of delivery via PayPal.

    Oh, I trust ya AdHoc. And I may end up taking you up on your offer. I guess that my point is, that I shouldn't have to go through such lengths to get this stuff. Sony should be eager to take my money themselves, you know?
