My exams ended on the 6th May 2009 and immediately after that, went for some retail therapy and bought a Nintendo Wii from Qisahn.com located at 545 Orchard Road #05-07, Far East Shopping Centre. It was kinda of a last minute decision to buy Wii which happens on the day before while studying for my Statistics & Probability (ST2334) paper.
The 3 of us, myself, Suqin and Kelvin (for his girlfriend’s birthday) bought the Wii together. We thought that buying 3 Wii together there would be discount, but unfortunately that is not the case. I spent a total of S$390 on this while Suqin and Kelvin each spend S$378 because they did not get the 3rd party component cable. Hong Jun also helped to inject some money into the economy by buying Wii Fit (that will be my next buy) and Weiquan bought some board games.
Received two Xbox 360 games via courier today from 2K Games which is part of Take-Two Interactive. Take-Two does Grand Theft Auto, Midnight Club, Civilization, Bioshock, Major League Baseball, NBA, NHL, etc.
Bioshock 2 will be released sometime in September 2009 and it will be on the cover page on April’s issue of Game Informer.
If you bought Street Fighter IV for Xbox360, you are entitled to an exclusively free Street Fighter IV Calendar. You can redeem it from Challenger at Funan or Best Denki at VivoCity from 12th February 2009 to 28th February 2009.
Remember to bring along the receipt together with the game. I did not bring because it was not stated and that was a wasted trip!
Pre-ordered my Street Fighter IV for my Xbox 360 a couple of weeks ago at Mega Multimedia. Mega Multimedia have 2 shops at Jurong Point, 1 at JP1 and 1 at JP2 as well as at Century Square. The guy told me that if I pre-order now I can get S$5 off the retail price. I thought it must be quite a good deal. Yesterday I was there at Jurong Point and I went to ask when Street Fighter IV is coming, the same guy (I remembered his face) told me that it has been delayed till next week. I was like WTF? I know that SF4 will be launching on the 12th February 2009 because my friend in Microsoft told me about it and it is unlikely to be delayed.
At night, my good friend Paranoia aka Benjamin MSN me saying that the shop he pre-ordered from, Game Score which is located in Funan, has already called him asking him to come down and collect it today. I was quite pissed off with Mega Multimedia after that and I intended to call them in the morning to clarify. But before I could call them, they called me this morning and asked me to collect my pre-ordered SF4 as it is already in the store and told me over the phone that the price is S$85. So I thought on top of that, I will get another S$5 discount which makes it S$80, but the guy say S$85 is already the discounted price.
Got my hands on the standalone Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Premier Edition from The Software Boutique for S$79.90. There is also another version of the Premier Edition which is S$89.90 and it is bundled with a T-Shirt and a 2GB Thumbdrive.
Two decades have passed since the demonic denizens, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, wandered the world of Sanctuary in a vicious rampage to shackle humanity into unholy slavery. Yet for those who battled the Prime Evils directly, the memory fades slowly and the wounds of the soul still burn.
SINGAPORE April 29, 2008 – Microsoft today announced it is lowering the estimated retail price (ERP) for its Xbox 360 consoles in Singapore. At the new ERP of S$499 for the Pro version with 20GB hard drive (previously priced at S$620), the Xbox 360 will give consumers more accessibility and opportunity to join the high octane world of interactive digital entertainment from Microsoft.
The prices of the Xbox 360 Arcade and Xbox 360 Elite will be lowered too. The Xbox 360 Arcade is now S$399 (previously S$459) and the Xbox 360 Elite with 120 GB hard drive is now S$699 (previously S$799).
Got the Xbox 360 Pro Console at a special price of S$450 at Funan’s Challenger, the usual price is S$669 Thanks so much for Ian for the help he given in this. I think a couple of us who went to the Xbox 360 2nd Anniversary Private Party held early this month also bought it at that price. I think I am the first one to collect it though.
