Where to buy in Mauritius

Beitragvon Bernard » Di Jan 13, 2004 4:10

Hi There,

I hope I am not intruding on the incorrect forum with these questions but I am travelling on Holidays from Sydney next month, for some sun, relaxation and shopping. I was wanting to know if playstation games are easily available on the island. How much will it cost and where can I purchase them from ? Does Mauritius have copied (pirate) versions of the games that I should look out for ?

Also, does Mauritius sell DVD's. Not only the originals, but copied versions too.

Thanks for your time.

Bernard

thins 3-4 year it's illegal to sell pirates music/movies/software/games.
BUT, you still can find them, i want say that it is easy, but it's possible.
I'm not to sure about DVD's, because in Mauritius people use still vcd's.

so if you have open :shock: you can see them.
regards

Hi Bernard,

you will find CDs, Vido-game-CDs etc mostly on the road with some hawkers.
Also in some villages you will be able to find shops specialised on such stuff (i.e. Goodlands).
(they even have a kind of guarantee: if the cd doesn't work you can change it...)
I know some people coming over from the center towns up to the north to buy software-CDs as well...

All originals are also available in the big shops.

but as you might/should know: all that stuff is illegal.

Best regards,

Joana
