NOK has usually been a little stronger, but a tad weaker than DKK. Right now it's stronger than both (but almost equal to DKK). Still, ordering from abroad is awesome. Now if you weren't aware of this already try using biit.no, it's a site that shows you Amazon's prices converted to NOK which also excludes the British VAT unlike the main Amazon does. It also shows you how much you will pay if you cross the limit of 200 NOK (which they don't seem to enforce that much these days).

I'll have to try and remember that one for later since it might be useful for the future.

Though on that note, another problem with stores in this country is that you're damned lucky if they have releases of a lot of games. Sometimes it seems only the big stuff comes over here. Some places being worse than others. >_>

I have decent experiences with Elkj°p, but even they don't really have everything I need. I thought to buy Tales of the Abyss when that came... It took me about 8 months before I actually had it and then I had to get it from Amazon. Also growing up about 30 km from the closest store I got used to ordering online as a young age. I've got to agree that it's a problem though.

Generally speaking I have good experiences with them as well, but not on the price point. Much like with others, I've found other stores to a bit less expensive on certain things overall. Platekompaniet has had a tendency to mark down non-AAA stuff by as much as 100 to 200 NOK by comparison(I think even AAA stuff may have been slightly cheaper, but not sure). So yeah distances and what not has led to me and my eldest sibling adopting the use of online ordering as well. I don't know if Amazon sells consoles(they probably do, but I've just forgotten if they do), but it'd be bound to cheaper with them than what I'd have to pay for in the store itself. >.>

Also we may be getting slightly off-topic...

It depends a lot on luck, both Platekompaniet and Elkj°p may surprise with a great deal every now and then. I find that Elkj°p usually got a bit lower price on brand new games than many others, but Platekompaniet got the best , Easter, spring, summer, fall and Christmas deals. They also got a lot wider array of games when you order online than Elkj°p, that and lots of anime and manga.

They are both good stores though.

Youch that seems a tad expensive knowing here in the UK it will cost ú400.

Think I'll just stick to getting a Wii U and ride out the next gen on it for a change.

Good stores I've not had much of an issue with aside from the pricepoint... And a certain laptop I shall not name incase of Elkj°p.
