    Save a Few Pounds at PlayUSA.com

    Posted by Joris | June 15, 2006 at 03:59 PM EDT |

         Attention all Europeans...JTA's good friend Iain writes in on how to save a few Pounds on each of the OOT DVDs. Here is what he discovered:
         Quick bit of news. Play.com are offering the UK versions of the new SW:OT DVDs on pre-order at £16.99 each. However, their international store PlayUSA.com is offering UKbuyers the USversions of the DVDs at £14.99 each. Now, if this is a mistake (which is likely) they are obliged to honour the original price to those who pre-order at that price.
         Thanks Iain!!
