Zavvi the place to be if you want hardware this Christmas, it seems.
The UKs Zavvi media chain has slashed the price on Xbox 360 consoles in the run-up to Christmas, with fears of a high street price war following hot on the heels of the news.
The retailer is selling the Xbox 360 Arcade pack for just £99.99, whilst slashing the Premium pack to £149.99 and the Elite to £199.99.
Also, they have cut the price of the PlayStation 3 to £269.99, and have also dropped the prices on several high class titles such as Gears of War 2 and PES 2009, which are both at £29.99.
A Zavvi spokesperson stated Our organisation believes in giving our customers the best deal and service. Weve put in place some great offers on Xbox hardware, giving customers the best value possible in the run up to Xmas. We appreciate how peoples wallets are being tightened because of the economy.
This move isnt necessarily surprising, given that the Zavvi.co.uk website has stopped taking orders due to their supplier - Entertainment PLC - going into administration as part of the Woolworths fiasco. This is one way to raise capital to buy stock, I guess.
