Businessman, you can get them at Amorn across from Cheronsri Grand Royal, the shopping strip. also At Xgames Shop, in same area. One of the shops has an Xbox or maybe both not sure, but the Xbox has been there since December last year....hmmmmmm guess the Xbox wasn't receive like it was else where.

Also my wife has a second Play Station 2 and TV for 8000.....but that up to you. :roll:

Thanks Pop,i should have just sent you a pm for info.

I have not seen any X box games for sale so maybe that is holding back sales.

ps. I would sincerely consider waiting for the next wave of games machines to be launched before buying from a shop as prices are pretty much guarenteed to tumble with the launch of the new PS3, X Box 360 etc.

But then again it may not happen in Thailand :?

Sean is correct about the price of the PS2. Currently in the UK you can buy from Amazon for ฃ97 post paid. The 360 launches before Christmas & Sony will have to do some serious price cutting on the PS2 if they are not going to let Microsoft capture the market completely this year.

I have until Christmas,so a few months for the price to fall.However i don't think PS III will be here for years.

Businessman, Play Station 3 coming out in the spring I think, and I like the looks of it, also giving variaty of colors too. Xbox 360 earlier or just about the time also. I want both :twisted: :mrgreen: If anything, Microsoft and Sony will come out with thier new items at the sametime or very darn close to each other. :yikes:

I would imagine the difference between PS2 and 3 would be less than the jump form 1 to 2.No reviews as yet.All they say is they want to make it expensive,a luxury item,the Rolls Royce of game consoles.However they must compete with Microsoft.Cannot see it myself.

PS3 is in the spring as you said, I can't find that they have announced a price, yet.

The both look mighty impressive pieces of kit....the only downside looks like the games are going to cost a fortune

That will make 'copies' of games a pretty good business to be in, I guess.

The guy that invents the 1st chip that allows them to play copies will become pretty wealthy, that much is for sure.
