I checked through most stores around Mauritius before I finally got a PlayStation 4 and these are my conclusions:
- Don't buy your new console in major outlets such as Galaxy. The consoles are very expensive there. Sure, you get a game or two in the bundle, but it is almost always cheaper to get the console and the game separately. In many cases, you get crap games anyway. Considering how expensive the games can be, you don't want to end up with crap ones.
- Cellbest and One O One have the best prices. Depending on your haggling skills, you can even knock the One O One price a bit.
- I hear MicroMania is great too, but I have not been able to confirm this.
- The average price is Rs 13,500 for the console without any games. If you go ahead and buy a couple of games with the console, One O One and MicroMania are very happy to negotiate a package.
These are the groups where I've seen the most activity on Facebook:
if you have fibre optics and are willing to spend part of your bandwidth dowloading these games.
