    Is anyone, (who already has a PS2), thinking of selling that to fund buying the smaller version?

    When you add an item to basket it says vat and postage will be calculated upon checkout.

    Hi,

    I drive along that road every day and there is no shop front for a console shop at that address. I'll take a closer look tonight on my way home.

    maybe its not a shop but a warehouse type (not an actual warehouse) thing.

    well, i would agree with you guys, because prices are too good, id pay them a visit first before i order

    there have been some queries about that site on another forum. They are avoiding it too. Seems too cheap!

    mrtbag,

    That's what threw me! The postcode and address do not match.

    132 looks like a residential property. (Victorian terrace)

    There is a games shop way further up Fishponds road called, GameScene, I think. But I don't believe the website and that company are related.

    hornydragon, it is a long drive and one I've been doing for 6 years and will be doing for another few months until my job goes to Bangalore in July next year! The joy of being in IT for a large corporate :mad:

    I agree it looks dodgy, but just to check it out, I have mailed them asking if I could collect one from them to save on postage. If I get a response I will let you all know.

    The manual says it can be set up to output progressive scan, which is good although it is restricted to 480P and NTSC discs only.

    I've ordered mine from Game with GTA: San Andreas and Tiger 2005 for £145.
