Do we buy a wii before we move to Doha frm UK

By seb1

We are moving from the Uk and have promised the kids a new wii when we move, are we best off buying it and the games in the UK or can we get it all easily in Doha? Thanks for your answers.

its available here but if you get cheaper from your foreign money, why not buy it there. You might blame yourself later on in doha if you find out its cheaper in UK.

Hi... with the current exchange rate it is far cheaper to buy most products in UK. None of the oulets here have adjusted any prices to match the current rate changes.

Wii+Wii sports is £175 on Amazon. The price Aisha quoted above works out at about £245, so cheaper to buy the console in the UK and I expect cheaper to buy the games in the UK a well.

(For example, Playstation 3 games cost about £60 here, which is way more than in the UK.)

It is available her all over the place. The rate for the basic wii is about Qr1300.-/1400.-. However the additional games are not really available.So compare prices and make up your mind. However do buy the additional games to the package there.
