Pricerunner shock find!

15 Replies 549 Views Created 01-01-2007
Hi all i have just been on pricerunner searching for fifa 07 on PS2. whilst searching for fifa 07 i stumbled accross links to sites that are taking pre-orders for PS3s.

My advice is to wait until Sony release a definite UK price before pre-ordering as there is a chance that you could get 'ripped-off' by pre-ordering too early as the prices stated on these sites are way too high.

I worked out yesterday by converting the price of the 20GB PS3 from euros to GBP and adding 17.5% VAT that it works out at about £394 (whether or not sony sell at that price is a different matter). The 60GB version will cost about £79 more than the 20GB inclusive of VAT at 17.5%. The 60GB version will possibly sell for around £473 (if sony decide to sell at that price, of course).

the link is:

most websites will only put up prices in the general region of what is expected, they will change when sony announce an official price, otherwise they will lose a lot of pre-orders,

Yep, think that's where the extra price may have come from :smileywink:

All EU countries have their own VAT.

Re: Pricerunner shock find!

Littlewoods I know are catalogues and are always expensive. Lxdirect may be the same. However £500 for a 60GB and Motorstorm isn't a rip off...well, not much.
