Okay, so I started a similar thread on another forum but now I think it really belongs here.
I want to buy a PS3 slim in London during August, so I was wondering if you can recommend some stores to buy from.
I looked online, and besides Zavvi, it seems to be rather expensive - so i'm looking for a reliable store that sells it for cheap(er).
Are the Zavvi prices the same in store as they are online?

Regarding PS3 models, I prefer a store that has the newer models: CECH-21XXB.
I don't know how common it is to find one, so what are my chances?

Thank you!
Thomas. :bouncy:

I might be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure there aren't any Zavvi stores left.

It's going to be tough to match online prices wherever you go, personally I'd go to GAME, gamestation or HMV, they sell a lot of them so you're pretty likely to get the newest model - prices will be average though, unless you manage to find a good deal online and collect in-store. Someone who lives in London might have a better idea though. ;)

What is an average price? Less than 250GBP for the 120GB version?

Do you know if Dixons are selling PS3's at the Luton airport?

Thanks Viper139, but I don't think i'll get to visit Walton on Thames.
I'll mainly be in the center of the city.
