Ordering

How do I search for items?

The easiest way to find items is to use the "Search Gameseek" field located at the top of each page. You can select and search in singular categories or do a general search that covers all the categories on the website. Searching can be done by selecting inside the search box, then typing the specified details and clicking on "Go". Try to keep your search simple, for example: If you are searching for Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, instead of typing the phrase "Grand Theft Auto San Andreas" by entering just one word in the search, eg. "Theft" or "Andreas", you will find what you are looking for much easier.

Alternatively you can search for items by category. This type of search will pick up a more broader range of results. For example if you wanted to view a list of Racing games for the Playstation 2 console, you would first click on "Sony PS2" situated underneath the "Browse Platform" box on top left of the site. You will now be on the Playstation 2 homepage that lists everything for the Playstation 2 console. If you browse down the category list on the left hand side of the page you will see the Racing category situated beneath "PS2 Games". Click on "Racing" and you will be able to browse our entire range of Playstation 2 Racing Products.(click here to go back to the top)

What are your Speciality Shops? (Shop by Brand)
This is just another way of searching for your favourite products. You will notice that "Speciality Shops" are situated one section below the "Browse Platform" box on top left of the site.You will notice that there is 12 shops already listed in this box (eg. Joytech, Logic 3, Logitech etc.) Click on any of these stores or alternatively click on the "View all Stores" button and it will take you to the store list. Here you will find suppliers of all the games & accessories stocked by us. By clicking on any of the company logos you will be directed to a unique specialist page for that supplier.

What is Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode?
3D Secure is a new technical standard developed by Visa and MasterCard to further secure CNP (Cardholder Not Present) transactions over the Internet. MasterCard brand their system as 'MasterCard SecureCode' and Visa call theirs 'Verified by Visa'. It requires the cardholder to provide a personal password or pin number when paying for goods online with their credit card just as they would provide a pin on the high street. This ensures that the shopper is who they say they are when providing card details to an online shop. Cardholders are reassured that when they sign up their card is protected from fraudulent use on the internet. For more information about this please click here.

To exercise your right of cancellation, you must give written notice to Gameseek by email giving details of the goods ordered and date received. Notification by phone is not acceptable. If you exercise your right of cancellation after the goods have been delivered to you, you will be responsible for returning the goods to Gameseek at your own cost. All returned Items must be in the original packaging and sent to us within seven days from receipt. Returned goods must be still sealed, unopened and in perfect condition. Goods that do not comply with this may not be returned.

Please Note: Do Not Return any item before contacting us first. Most Returns can be prevented if customers contact the manufacturer of the goods before contacting us. For example, its likely if a small part of a product is broken or damaged then the manufacturer will send out a replacement part free of charge.

Our Returns procedure involves customers receiving a Returns Authorisation number before sending the item back. Without this RA number you will not be able to return any item. If you do so, the return will not be dealt with. So please contact us first. If the return is agreed by us then you will need to put the RA number (that we will give you) clearly marked on the outside of the parcel and on a note inside the parcel. This helps us deal with returns more effectively and efficiently.

You may return any unopened item within 7 days of receiving it, for a full refund. We will refund your card once we have received and processed the item. We will only refund delivery costs if the return is a result of our error. We cannot refund or exchange an opened item unless it is faulty, or if the item was sent to you through our error.

You are advised to package the product adequately as we cannot accept liability for any damage incurred during delivery back to Gameseek.

Please note: You do not have the right to cancel the contract under the Distance Selling Act if you have collected goods or if: the goods were delivered outside the UK, or if the order is for computer software which has been unsealed, or if you are not a consumer i.e. a company, partnership, sole trader or any other commercial body or registered charity.

I Have received a game that is not Shrink Wrapped - does this mean it is not new?
It is a fact that most games, sold on the UK market, do not come shrink wrapped or with any form of factory seal. It is very common for games for other consoles to arrive with no shrink wrap. They come direct from the manufacturer like this. In most cases it is the retailer that actually reseals the item. We do take great care to ensure that all the products that we supply arrive in the best possible condition. (click here to go back to the top)

What is regional coding?
Regional coding is a system implemented by games and film companies to allow them to control when products are released throughout the world. It stops people watching movies or playing games earlier than the companies intended. The UK is based in PAL or Region 2. This means that if you live in the UK you will only be able to play PAL games or watch Region 2 DVD / UMD Films on your player unless your player is Multi Region compatible. Gameseek only sell PAL items and Region 2 DVD or UMD products.

There are six regions:
Region 1 - USA and Canada
Region 2 - UK, Europe, Japan, South Africa and the Middle East
Region 3 - South East Asia and East Asia
Region 4 - Australia, New Zealand, Central and South America, Pacifica and the Caribbean
Region 5 - Africa, India, Russia, North Korea and Mongolia
Region 6 - China

What region is my Games Console?
All UK & European Home Games Consoles are automatically coded to PAL.However, PC games can be bought and played on in any region as they are a Universal format. Also Handheld Consoles (eg. Sony PSP and Nintendo DS) are also Universal - they will play games from any region.(click here to go back to the top)

What is region PAL?
PAL Items are only compatible in the UK, Europe, Australia & New Zealand. (click here to go back to the top)

What is region Universal?
Universal Items are compatible with any hardware. It does not matter which country you bought the hardware from. Examples of Universal Products are: PC Games, Sony PSP Games and Nintendo DS Games.

What is Dolby Sound?
There are a number of different variations of Dolby:

Dolby Surround is the earliest form of surround sound. It is a three-channel process meant to recreate a theatre experience. The Dolby stereo track is channelled into the front left and front right speakers. A mono signal is created electronically by comparing the differences between the left and right stereo signal. This is then fed to both rear speakers.

Dolby Pro Logic is an advanced version of Dolby Surround, adding a centre channel speaker for music and effects. It is a four-channel system that directs the information to certain speakers. The four channels are the set of front speakers, one centre channel speaker and one rear speaker.

Dolby Pro Logic II is a dramatically improved, updated matrix surround system, based on the principles used to develop the original Dolby Pro Logic decoding. It provides you with multichannel surround sound from any stereo source. Pro Logic II further enhances the sound with a full-range stereo surround output and a greatly improved steering logic, resulting in high channel separation and an exceptionally stable soundfield.

Dolby Digital is a multichannel format introduced in 1996 and presents 6 discrete audio channels. (Also described as 5.1) 5 of the 6 channels carry the entire bandwidth of sound with the 6 the speaker or LFE (Low Frequency Effects) Channel carries all the low-bass sounds. This enables you to maximize your action-adventure sequences with fuller explosions and sound effects. You are still able to hear bass sounds from your left and right front speakers even without a subwoofer, but you won't experience the full impact of audio without a subwoofer.

Dolby Digital Surround EX adds to Dolby Digital 5.1 movie soundtracks a third surround channel, reproduced by speakers positioned directly behind the audience. This extra rear surround channel works with the usual left and right surround channels to produce an intensified realism that draws you even further into the action.

What is DTS?
There are two different variations of Digital Theatre Surround sound.

DTS Digital surround and Dolby Digital are almost the same. The basic difference between these two formats is the method of compression used to fit the original audio data files onto the DVD. In theory, DTS sound should reveal slightly better quality than Dolby Digital as it is less compressed, however in most cases you would be very hard pressed to tell them apart. This does however mean that since DTS sound takes more space to store on a DVD, there is sometimes not enough room for the same extra features that are to be found on non-DTS discs.

The DTS and Dolby formats are not compatible, and require their own branded decoding chips on AV receivers and processors, as well as separate digital outputs on DVD players. DTS and Dolby Digital will continue to co-exist in the marketplace.

DTS-ES represents the world's first 6.1-channel Discrete Surround format. Expanding upon 5.1 surround, it adds an additional dedicated centre surround channel. A new DTS-ES receiver is required to experience the full discrete 6.1-channel mix. At the same time, all DTS-ES discs will be fully compatible with 6.1 Matrix decoders and 5.1 Digital Surround.

What is THX?
THX is a set of technical specifications designed to standardize the performance of surround sound. George Lucas developed these standards shortly after the film "Star Wars" was created. He did so in order to standardise the audio and video experience in theatres across the world so that his films would be represented as they were made, essentially trying to recreate the original. Manufacturers of all theatre and A/V products have been giving a set of performance specifications that their products must meet in order to qualify for THX certification. THX is a certification that can be an indication of how well a product has been built - although it should not be the only indication. Some manufacturers choose not to participate in the certification program, preferring instead to build their product to their own specifications. (click here to go back to the top)

What are the Age ratings for Games?
In the UK, age ratings for computer and video games are determined by a two-tier system that works within voluntary European guidelines known as PEGI and the mandatory BBFC regulations as determined by the Video Recordings Act of 1984. The voluntary PEGI system is one of the most robust in Europe and, in terms of rating criteria, is the strictest. It is supported by the entire value chain from software developer and hardware manufacturer through to publisher, distributor and retailer.

3+ - Suitable for those over 3 years of age.
7+ - Suitable for those over 7 years of age.
12+ - Suitable for those over 12 years of age.
16+ - Suitable for those over 16 years of age.
15 - Unsuitable for those under 15 years of age.
18 - Unsuitable for those under 18 years of age.

What are the Age ratings for DVD and UMD?
Certification is a legal requirement for all DVDs and UMDs released within the UK, including their respective bonus features. The aim of certificates is generally to restrict certain age groups from watching certain films, although they can also be used as an indication of a films content for prospective viewers.

E - Exempt from certification.
Uc - Universal, particularly suitable for children.
U - Universal, suitable for all.
PG - Parental Guidance. Some scenes may be unsuitable for young children.
12 - Unsuitable for those under 12 years of age.

What is a Superbit DVD?
Superbit titles utilise a high bit-rate digital transfer process which optimises video quality while offering a choice of both DTS and 5.1 Dolby Digital audio. Basically the disc space normally used for value-added content and multiple audio streams is now being used for optimising the picture and sound. Superbit DVDs are encoded at approximately double their normal bit-rate while maintaining full compatibility with the DVD-Video format. The result is picture quality that provides outstanding detail. Superbit DVDs play on all current DVD players and do not require any additional equipment. Currently DVDs are encoded to optimise space for the feature plus added value and audio streams. The Suberbit collection converts the physical space ordinarily devoted to added value to higher bit rate video transfer and both Dolby Digital 5.1 & DTS audio. (click here to go back to the top)

Other Frequently Asked Questions

The game you have listed has now gone to budget label - will i receive the game in the original packaging or the budget packaging?

We understand that some die hard gamers prefer to have the game in its original packaging so where possible we will allways send the original product. However once a game has been reduced to the budget label it means that the game is no longer made in its original packaging. Therefore we cannot guarantee that you will get the game in its original packaging. However most importantly: the game is exactly the same, its only the packaging that is different!
