So recently I’ve been going around Rihab, Alghanim and Virgin to look for good offers for PS3 games, so far the best option has been Rihab, however there is annoying trait at Rihab. They sell region one games at a higher price despite the fact that the PS3 is not region coded, and when this is argued with them, they will tell you off. This is largely disappointing specially for games which get banned from Kuwait like Assassins Creed, GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption and etc, as you can only get them in Rihab.
I myself get my games from Rihab from a shop keeper I know, who is really smart, he knows about hacking and everything so it is easy to deal with him, last year he sold me three region 1 games for 16KD same as the cost for region 2 games, whereas when I went to another shop just to check prices, they were selling it for 21 KD.
Another annoying trait around Kuwait is old games being expensive, games like MGS4 still cost 23 KD + despite it being almost 3 years old now, I got the game for 5 KD from USA last summer, this applies to Rihab as well sadly :|.
Finally games which are a major hit with people are just bloody over priced, last year during MW2’s release, i got mine on launch date for 17KD (region 1), whereas other shops were selling for 35KD and not even the limited editions.
This week Black Ops finally came out, and many people had got the game by friday, as they pre-ordered them. I myself am getting the game next week during eid, when I get my money :P. Anyways Alghanim has said on their twitter and facebook that Black Ops will cost 21 KD from tomorrow, and they have limited stocks. I myself find this quite expensive, as I can get it for 16/17 KD from Rihab from a shop keeper I know, who sells at Cost Prince(actually many people do).
So far Alghanim has come out with some good offers on new games, like PES 2011 and FIFA 11 were being sold for 16KD on certain days, and they have different offers occasionally.
The one game which is just massively over priced here is Guitar Hero or anything similar to that, I got GH5 for 60$ with Guitar, whereas over here it is being sold from 60KD to 100KD.
So where do you go to buy your games, and what are your favorites?
