The Sexiest Boutique on the Net

Advantagesgood range of reasonably priced games

Disadvantagesnone

Electronic Boutique

AdvantagesGood Managment, Recent Deals Signed, PS2 release.

DisadvantagesLot of hype on Sony PS2 release,

"Here we have a computer software retailer which at this point last year was seeming to struggle. A Profits warning at Christmas and a downhill ride for the share prices, and with that many unhappy investors. This was due to the high discounting that was taking place in the sector. Price was started out between companies such as Tescos & Dixons, Electronic Boutique had to follow suit. The shares hit an all time low of 25p, however the management ..." Read review

"EB is a waste of time stop going to their site or store go to this one instead - http://www.gameoveruk.com/ - it is quick, effiecnt and down right cheap! OK so the web site is boring has no content, no picture or descriptions of the games that they sell, but hey the prices are so damm cheap, all the latest releases on the Playstation are only £22.99 with free delivery, if you walked into your local EB store they would be £29.99! What a saving! They ..." Read review
