    www.play.com are doing the PS2 at £129 delivered.

    This maybe a national offer as the price was dropped in Europe from euro250 to euro199, so others may follow this weekend.

    The X-Box is £119 so is that the best price on the net ?

    Will I be hit with customs duty if I order this from Play ?

    I dont think so, I think they are a Jersey based company, I only think that you get hot on products imported from europe.

    maybe best to mail them first and ask.


    with R-Type Final , gradius V and metal slug all on the way and the awesome VF4 Evolution, the PS2 still has loads of life left in it for me :) and it this price people should have one if they havent already.

    Plus some of the early games like ridge racer V that alot of people didnt bother with because of mediocre reviews at the time can now be bought for a couple of quid.

    You will get hit by customs and have to pay VAT and import duty (17.5% and 10% respectively) boosting the £129.99 PS2 to £153 with VAT and £168 with import duty as well.

    I just recieved the Animatrix from play.com and as part of the address label it a had a full customs sticker with the value of the product (only £11.99 so no VAT), a cross next to 'merchandise' etc. Anyway, even without the label, a parcel as large as a PS2/Xbox would almost certainly get noticed. It did sound to good to be true.

    i doubt you would get stung on import of a PS2 from play (a PAL) their was a similar offer on a DVD player at CDwow, they would only ship to a UK address. I reckon £129 delivered is the price dispatched from in-side the UK!
    PS check first!

    Rindless,

    I found it by just typing in "x box console" in the basic search field, then clicking on the grey search button. This quickly returned a a page of results with the £89.95 "Buy It Now" offer about mid way down. Not that I'm buying though.

    AJP.
