Have you looked on E-bay? Or tried the Bioware/Interplay online store? I can't imagine that there is no place to purchase ToB online.

Keep looking; I'm sure there's a copy somewhere.

Cheers,

Amazon will likely have it and they have warehouses in the UK; next day delivery and you can buy a second-hand but still mint edition cheap. DO you have a local PC world? HMV and WH Smiths sell it too, as does Virgin megastores. Are there no Game or Electronic Boutique shops in your area?

And no, ToB is not Abandonware and cannot be downloaded; if you find a site that has it it's a pirate and should be reported to Bioware as it's infringing on copyrights.

That doesn't include shipping fees, Dundee. Though $5.99 is hardly a lot...I've seen WH Smith selling BG SoA AND ToB in a small little DVD case for £10, though. And the original BG for £5 with ToTSC.

Ironically, $29.95 is more expensive than what I bought my copy for. I assume that that particular quoted price is in US dollars. £10 is cheaper than what I bought it for though. I got mine roughly at US$24.32 after conversion.

Even worse, I bought mine for £30.00 when it came out-I think that's about...$42.00? I'm not too sure on the conversion rates, correct me if I'm wrong.

£30.00?

Based on the 2.65 rate, that will be S$79.95 to me! [img]graemlins/crazyeyes.gif[/img]

Egads! That be expensive for an expansion! The most expensive game over here is Warcraft 3 at S$69.90. The highest that I have seen for a non-collector's-edition game is S$75.00 for Diablo 2.
