Sony Entertainment has announced it is reducing the price of its PlayStation 3 games consoles.

In Europe the price has been lowered to 299 euros, in the US to $299 and in the UK to £249.99.

Sony made the announcement at a press conference ahead of the 2009 games convention - Games Com - in Cologne.

It also announced it was ending production of its current PlayStation 3 console in favour of a new lighter, slimmer model with a 120GB hard drive.

The prices are very tempting, wonder how much the dealers in Kuwait are going to 'over'charge us for it.

Well you could always order it online :D

Of course after comparing the prices in Kuwait and factoring in a 2 week delivery time and the shipping charges.

Surprisingly enough some items are cheaper in Kuwait than Amazon ! I was looking for a Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens on amazon and it was around 38 KD. When I asked for the same in Ashraf they quoted 37 KD and would knock off 10% since I'm a regular :D

Yes. Some things actually ARE cheaper.

But then you do get some awesome deals online (I have).

Plus.. most of the things end up rather late in Kuwait markets, but have been available online for quite a while.

even if the lens would cost you KWD 39, I would still suggest buying it from here would be a better option.. Why wait for 2 weeks just to save KWD 1.

:D

No , I meant the lens is cheaper here in Kuwait. The total would be around 33 KD ! I thought he was kidding !

Oops.. guess my post wasn't as clear.. Here goes:

Yes. Some things actually ARE cheaper in Kuwait!

But then you do get some awesome deals online (I have), at times.

Plus.. most of the things end up rather late in Kuwait markets, but have been available online for quite a while. (which is why, although they are cheaper in Kuwait now, I still ended up paying more, because I ordered it online and had it before it was available in kuwait)

even if the lens would cost you KWD 39, I would still suggest buying it from here would be a better option.. Why wait for 2 weeks just to save KWD 1.

:D

(the last para is..

that in my case, price is not the only variable to be considered.

If you want some thing now, there is no harm in even paying extra in Kuwait (in case it's not cheaper in kuwait) and getting it now itself, rather that order online and wait 2 weeks for delivery)

What I was trying to highlight was - it's good you are getting it cheaper in Kuwait. But in case Kuwait prices were a bit higher, and the difference was a trivial amount, I would STILL suggest that getting it from Kuwait would be a better option, simply because you would have the item immediately.

exactly ! :D

Of course, the availability factor is not applicable for ALL the products.

At times, the item is available in Kuwait within a reasonable timeframe.

As perhaps is the case with the camera lens you are referring to.
