Datablitz is now open at UP Town Center! #UPTownCenter #Datablitz
Founded in 1995, DataBlitz started by selling software and games at reasonable prices. And today, the gaming and multimedia store still follows the same ethos. Only now, it's more of an institution than it is a store. With multiple locations throughout the country, it's the best source for almost anything under tech.
Games are what you came here for, and DataBlitz has plenty. Get lost in the store's offerings for the Sony Playstation Vita (PS Vita), the Sony Playstation 3 (PS3), the Sony Playstation 4 (PS4), the Microsoft Xbox 360, the Microsoft Xbox One, the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo 3DS, the Nintendo Wii, and the Nintendo Wii U.
What keeps customers coming back is the store's reputation when it comes to the best prices as well as for selling all-original games. According to DataBlitz's site, "We believe in giving our customers value for their money and in buying from DataBlitz, our customers are assured not only of the best prices on original games and software plus quality customer service and support that comes with each purchase."

3| Sony Centre
If the Playstation is your preferred console, then you're in luck because Sony has its own store that's centered on just the Playstation. Plenty of Sony Centres also have games, and you'll have no trouble finding a location since there's one in almost every part of the country, from Baguio to Zamboanga. The only downside, obviously, is that it's only good for those that have the PS Vita, PS3, and PS4.
4 Toys "R" Us
Despite its size, the Toys "R" Us gaming section isn't one to miss. Dubbed R-Zone, it has the latest consoles and games to match. It's definitely a smaller selection than the rest of the shops in the list, but it's still worth checking out when it comes to prices and availability. The Toys "R" Us site has a pretty good catalog of what it has on hand.
