Guidance in Singapore
Posted 02 December 2011 - 03:04 AM
I just moved to Singapore about 7 weeks ago. It's been great so far. I left my Xbox 360 thinking people would want to use it but it seems that it's been sitting in the back of the car... in the sun.
Anyway, I'm thinking about buying a 360 here. What is the best place to do that? What's the regular price for a console here? Prices just differ so much around here from shop to shop. Challenger seems to be the one place where the price was the best. I want to play Gear of War 3 so I don't mind getting that one - even though the console itself is hideous. Too bad there's no Arkham or Skyrim version. If anyone has one for sale then please let me know - even the older ones would be ok.
I'll also be traveling around the region so if you guys think it's better to get a deal somewhere else then please let me know.
PS. If you are ever up for a drink or something, that'd be great. I need to meet people here.

There are other reputable sellers around the country, so it'll depend on where you live, cause they probably all have them at the same price. Microsoft has a significant local presence there, so there definitely is a standard retail price... Which shops did you visit?
There are several variations of the console being sold there, same as how the US has the 4GB Arcade version, 320GB Elite, etc, so it's up to you which you'd prefer.
Definitely NEVER EVER get anything gaming related from shopping centres like Lucky Plaza and Sim Lim Square though. The latter is great for buying PC parts and assembling your own desktop, but for console gaming, they're rip-offs.
I actually sent you a PM with more advice on game collecting in Singapore, so if you're still in the country and need more help with that, do let me know. I'll be happy to help.
