America’s Black Friday might be hogging all the limelight at the moment, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great deals out there for us Brits – Sainsbury’s has slashed the price of the 12GB PS3 Super Slim. (PS3, Sainsbury's)

amazing deal. i see this has a better deal than having the option to buy a wii u with all the games for the same price.

the ps3 is the most powerful console on the market with the best and highest rate exclusive titles that supports the best media formats so this is the best deal for getting a home console or media player streaming device

What's grammar got to do with it?

On topic; this really is amazing. Know why? Because this means you can get a brand new PS3 and PS Vita - both as game bundles - for the same or less money than a WiiU...

Crazy times :O And sure to make early adopters consider their options.

To those that disagreed to my above comment; I didn't mean to provoke anyone, just to help people get the best deals.

In UK Amazon.co.uk offer white Vita & CoD Black Ops & memory card for £189.99. Add that to this PS3 Super Slim price of £138.74 from Sainsbury's and you pay £328.73, which is 2 consoles for less than the 32GB WiiU RRP.

Another disagree, lmao!

Guess what? Amazon in the UK are now offering a bundle: a 500GB PS3, a Vita and PSASBR for £329!! That's less than £350, isn't it?

To disagree is to wish it wasn't so! But it won't change the truth :P
Makes me wonder if ps4 will have 12Gb models to keep price down. WiiU is similar to this.

Also Nazi in the room.

Ur tripping mate the wiiu is very much the most powerful its got a slower cpu but its got lots of edram and modern tech ie out of order execution ect and the gpgpu basically does cpu tasks that ends up making the wiiu over all cpu power much more than any ps3 get a grip.

The gpgpu takes zero hit on graphics when using all its cpu power in other words the wiiu is a gpgpu focused console that supports dx11 comparable shaders shader model 5.0/Compute shader 11/Tons of edram thats directly on the MCM mother board which makes the edram alot more relevant basically the wiiu is a graphical beast as michel ancel said it handled uncompressed textures that were in super HD resolution and it still handled it no problem at 60fps says it all if u ask me.

Why did Michel ancel say they had problems with fill rate on Rayman origins Ps3/360 and frame rate issues if ps3 is so powerful ??

Yet wiiu can handle super HD textures with zero slowdown ?

Also Michel ancel said to ONM that BGAE2 is a good fit for wiiu and said its very powerful.

Children calm down with the pointless arguments. One system came out 6 yrs ago, the other came out LAST WEEK. Should anyone even question which one is more powerful? Although I haven't tried a wiiu yet, Ps3 is where its at for me.

Let me shed some light on this. Yes the PS3 is still the most powerful home console. The PS3 defintely has the better processor. The WiiU's processor is just basically 2 Wii processors. The WiiU has the better GPU vs. the PS3's. The WiiU has more RAM than the PS3, but the PS3's RAM is faster. Lets see if the WiiU will ever produce a game that looks better than Uncharted 2. I doubt it because working with slow RAM is extremely frustrating for any software developer.
