Considering buying a console. Editing: I bought an Xbox !!!

Okay, another little thing I need to know.

If I order the PS3 and GTA IV in the same package

And do not have the GTA IV in stock, will the shipment be delayed until the game

Will come to stock and then the two products will be sent together?

------------editing--------------------

Ok I'm almost sure going for it so let me summarize all the expenses and tell me in the end whether it's worth it.

So, this PS3 costs $ 450 (NIS 1575):

GTA IV costs $ 65 (NIS 227.5):

http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-bp-77-1-49-en-15-gta+iv-70-1vgg.html

Shipping - I went for the cheapest and it came out to me 146 USD (511 NIS).

In case it gets caught in customs - 27.5% which means around NIS 636.

Total: 661 USD (or 246 USD if caught in customs).

And in shekels - 2313 shekel (or 2949 if caught at customs).

what do you think?

The price seemed ridiculous to me.

It is worth bringing a console when you are in the same country and you can bring it without shipping costs + VAT and CBS.

Bring a console that is at the same price in the country, wait a long time and lose responsibility does not seem to me the most worth doing, to say the least.

I moved a few days ago at some computer store in the mall (I live in Eilat) and the price was around the 2650-2700 for PS3.

There was another kit with 2 signs + 2 games or something like that while some 300 weighed.

The price of the Elite Xbox was also around the same price

ה Was in the 1800 area if I remember correctly

What I am saying is that the purchase seems more worthwhile to me in Israel.

I do not know about the others, I bought XBOX360 ARCADE FALCON in the US, someone from the family brought with him, rose a little less than 300 dollars and that's it.

A little more money on accessories (more signs, batteries, power converter that will fit the country).

No problems and no hard disk and nothing, the card The 256 MB that comes with it has dozens of games.

Maybe if I downloaded things from Live or expect to use the console as a media center. But as far as I'm concerned it's for net gaming and doing it great.

In the future, I might also connect with Leib if I wanted to experience it.

Say all XBOX360 ARCADE is FALCON?

If you are still deliberating between the consoles, then read the The next comparison.

An in-depth comparison that lists the advantages and disadvantages of each console in each category (multimedia, graphics, online, etc.)

In the end you need to put your finger on what's important to you On the console.

An article from nearly six months ago, quite a few things have changed:

* Most companies will no longer delay releasing a version to PS3

* The PS3 store has been upgraded seriously and I've heard quite a few people say in response that this is an almost superior experience to the 360

* As far as the number of games is not yet comparable, the 360 reached 1000 recently

* Graphically or operationally there is also no change except perhaps the fact that the games that go out to the two consoles already look and do the same thing

As for most of the talkbacks I have read, it is likely that there is a mixture of hardware on the arcade consoles (as well as the other 360 types) when some are Falcon and some are not

Before I write the response I want to tell you something.

Do you know why I did not respond all day?

Because I was busy plowing on GTA IV About my uncle's 360 !!!

I played close to 10 for hours and I went over 15% of the game!

amazing game!

And now for his own purposes.

The truth, I thought, was that it was more profitable to buy from the country

While the addition is tiny and it seems to me the most logical there is, I think I'll go for it!

HWzone, what would I do without you, you do not know how much you helped me!

I will inform you about the purchase of the console.

Thanks. : xyxthumbs:

From what I know, the PS3 has a global power adapter, meaning whether it's American or European it does not need a power converter. I know for a fact that it's like this on PSP and I know someone who understands an interest, who strongly believes that this is the situation on PS3

The link to PS3 developed by Heath brought to PLAY ASIA explicitly written 110V and there is no mention of 220V. Even though I never bothered to look into it.

As for most of the talkbacks I have read, it is likely that there is a mixture of hardware on the arcade consoles (as well as the other 360 types) when some are Falcon and some are not

There is a sure way to know if this is a Phalcon, and that is if you check that the power supply that comes with the console is the new 175W and not 203W. Sometimes it is written on the label of the package, although sometimes 203W is written and 175W is still in it. If buyers in the US can always be returned by chance and receive 203W and do not even need a reason.

Of course, this is valid only for physical purchases and not for purchase.

You're welcome

Games are better for you to buy dance

Consoles are not that either you do not have how to exercise warranty and this is a great delivery

In the future that the services will improve, it will be possible to buy games directly from the companies

Through the network

There's a bit of it on all the new consoles

But the next generation can be excellent without having to watch and without a drive that can be screwed

I recommend you buy from HMV.co.uk Excellent store I ordered them from my xbox 360 Elite and got me including Fedex shipping Customs 27% All 2300 NIS 1200 NIS cheaper than the country I'm talking about Halit really pays off and comes within 3 days highly recommend .

Ido, I would like to hear more details about your order .... I entered the site you offered and the price there for the package ELITE is 260 pounds sterling ... it is 6.86 * 260 = 1783

Add Shipping 18.5 Pound Sterling = 126.91 Together Total 1909.91.

Now, this is really a nice price my questions are: 1. What about customs / VAT in Israel (in a simple calculation I get to 2400 - which is still likely) 2 ...

And if you can explain a little more about how the whole deal was done ... How did the package get to you? Did you have to go pick her up? These and other certificates?

Thanks in advance,

Question if possible: I have read somewhere that in Israel you can not connect to a Sony network and play network games or for example use a service like Because of something that Isfar did not do. Is that true? If so then there is no point buying the console

Question: If I can: I read somewhere that in Israel you can not connect to a Sony network and play web games, or use a service like PLAYSTATION HOME because of something that will not be done. Is that true? If so then there is no point buying the console

And further on to this question, is it possible to connect NTSC to be bought in the US, to the Internet here in Israel (to LIVE)? I realized that there was some interest in the serial identification of the devices and they may not be allowed to enter the Lev if they are identified outside of the area where they are supposed to be sold (USA)

Take a look at this Fedex shipping help that comes within 3-5 days sometimes even in two days it's very fast and it's by air not by sea.

Recommend only a very important thing very much I was in trouble with them that my international credit card was registered at my parents' address and I sent somewhere else so they blocked me and everything and was a whole story and would not recommend it because it was a one-day follow-up.

And you need to add to the price name 27% customs + VAT.

This is very profitable because in Israel it costs 3500 NIS and it is also more lucrative than the US because a transformer is needed and the shipment costs much more.
