Even Amazon's release date is Dec 31st so I would not have too much hopes.

Amazon UK has it for £358.33 after 20% tax deduction + £8.48 shipping = £366.81 total including shipping ~ S$738 * 1.07 (GST) = S$790. UK Amazon has a release date of November 22nd.

I forgot about good old co.uk. Yes, that's very reasonable option. They deliver pretty quickly and often costs less than from the US (if shipping costs not nil).

No more regions on Xbox One. It might affect the Bluray and DVD playback though. I tend to order games from UK anyway, as there are cheaper, better promos and free shipping (e.g. Zavvi).

Are there any other UK based online shops for electronics that ship at reasonable rates to Singapore? I recall somebody mentioned a big one some longer time ago but I don't remember the name any longer.

Maybe Game.co.uk ? The problem with other than Amazon websites is that they won't deduct 20% VAT.
