Importing from Japan / USA
« on: August 28, 2012, 17:16:57 PM »
I like my NTSC stuff, but I've never really looked into importing from Japan or the USA as I assumed one would have to pay a lot of import tax or whatever. Anyone had any experience with this?

Thinking specifically about consoles as I know you don't get charged if it's under a certain amount.

I dunno about consoles but I have imported loads of games from both Japan and the US and its very rare I have been hit with customs charges.

I know dcultrapro bought his Jag CD from the US as it worked out much cheaper.

There is a guy in Japan I buy loads of Saturn games from and his prices are not only insanely cheap but so is the shipping and sometimes I get the games in less than a week!  :o
