Sony BDP-S300 S$999


Recommended Posts



Saw today's ST Digital Life that Sony is selling it at S$999, while Amazon is US$399. Why can't Sony priced it the way as it priced PS3, meaning better value than US? Just like Toshiba player ...  :(

 

let me answer this:

 

it's bcos our market in SG is too small, so we must be realistic and  pay more. 8)

Guys you really should look at things objectively before getting emotional.  The S300's official US price is US$499 before tax.  This number converted to S$ + 7% GST is very close to S$900 plus.  Plus the S300 here is able to play PAL disc, an additional feature that the US one is incapable.  Therefore it should be slightly more.  Sony Singapore should really be *praised* for doing the right thing, instead of being criticized like this.  Even the older model S1, the official US price is US$999 before tax, again very close to S$ price.  What's more, comparing prices of a local B&M store to an Internet vendor is not fair, because there is no equivalent internet vendor here.

 

I had hoped Pioneer Singapore could do the same thing for their Kuro HD models. (Their SD models are effectively close to US price).

the only problem with PS3 40G is that it is no longer backward-compatible. May be i should forget about playing PS1 and 2 games with PS3.

If I understand correctly, the 60/80 GB PS3 is only backward compatible with Japan games. It might be better to spend $250 on a PS2 and able to play "all" games.  :)

Pete cover this on the PS3 Thread.

IMO, Not so bad lah... already have denon 1930 to play cd and sacd so no issue there..

Maintaining both PS2 and PS3 is a pain though, so might as well go with 60GB model and save console space.

 

Depends on what you need really.

I guess i will just buy 40G one just for playing movies and PS3 games. No use to hold on old games anyway.  ;D ;D
