what's awesome is the Euro is already significantly weaker right now against the USD compared with just 2 months ago.
Hopefully this trend will continue.
and import discs from the UK are cheaper than ever right now also.

Ya bastards. All my discs from France, Germany, the US and Japan are going to cost me a bloody fortune. I've had to cancel quite a few pre-orders to make ends meet.

The pound is at it's weakest against the dollar for over 5 years. The senior British politician is the shadow chancellor (i.e. he's not in government) so take his predictions with a pinch of salt. That said, there is a possibility of a run on the pound because of record government borrowing. In short, no-one knows what will happen.
