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.

Got my copy of Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath from The Software Boutique for S$89.00. The bundle includes the game itself and a limited edition Razor Deathadder mouse which really looks ugly with the EA logo replacing the Razor logo.
I did not even complete Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars because my computer will restart every 15 minutes once I tried to play the game, which I think is due to my graphics card (ATI Radeon X800XT) heat issue. I bought this game to collect it and once my new computer comes in June 2008, it is time to play.
Nseries WOM World has selected me to help Nokia beta test N-Gage and they even sent me a Nokia N81 8GB all the way from UK to Singapore by DHL.
According to the user agreement, the phone will be on loan to me for 2 weeks, but hopefully they can extend it for me as I am still waiting for my Nokia N82 from Nokia Singapore (it has been 3 months, sigh).
