Many of the videogame shops at the Al-Rihab Complex are preparing for Eid; the time of year where kids of all ages show up with pockets heavily-loaded and craving to get their gaming fix. The competition gets pretty intense and prices tend to fall rather sharply so you’ll see posters and pinups like this one plastered everywhere begging for your attention.
What took me by surprise was the fact that PSP games (US: $40 KWT: 5 KD) are selling for a third or a quarter of the price of Nintendo DS (US: $30 KWT: 15 KD) games! Hm.. I guess I should have asked if they were selling UMD or MemoryStick-based games.
With the US launch of the Xbox 360 just a 20 days away, I think this is a perfect opportunity for retailers to clear out their stocks and make way for the new generation console.
