20 bucks less than 499 ? and how about the shipping ?

wow do people really need 20 bucks to play all the great games later ?

Here in California Amazon.com DOES NOT charge taxes on any of their products. Match that with the "Free Super Saver Shipping" and you've just purchased a, hard to find (apparently), 160Gb Ps3, with two games, for $479.99 TOTAL.

At the store, if they have the same drake and pain offer, it would be $499.99 + tax = $554 (%9 tax) So you're actually saving $74

I bought my PS3 as the 80Gb MotorStorm bundle, i had a coupon for %20 off on anything at K-mart (a black friday related coupon) so it was only $400 + tax and it was still while they were giving away 5 free blu-ray disc with purchase (mail-in offer) So I got a great deal and mine has some B/C (which i never use) so i don't know why people waited.

Idk, maybe this shows how much people are awaiting a price cut. This was only a $20 cut, imagine the response when it gets a serious price cut later down the road...

20$ bargains are incredible deals!

FarEastOrient3068d ago

Just imagine the sale through of a bigger price cut...

That the Wii and PS3 remain in the top 100 (around 25 and under). Pretty amazing at first but then I noticed they often have these deals and with the cost of taxes not included in many states, it only makes sense to buy it from Amazon.

Although, in regards to the PS3, if you want one cheap you need to get it fromt he SonyStyle Store. They are still running the add for a PS3 for 250USD. If you want one and can only afford 250, the Sony Style Store is the way to go. I can't count the number of friends I have that actually have bought their PS3's through Sony and paid 100 to 150 less than retail.

this probably means a new SKU soon if they are no longer at retail stores and Amazon has lowered their price probably to quickly make room for the new one.

Starts September 24. PS3 Slim announced. The 160Gb PS3 will become $399 without Uncharted, and the PS3 Slim will be $299.

I'm probably way off, but it's the internet. We say things and when they turn out to be wrong we forget that we even said it.

I don't think they'll remove Uncharted, unless they pack another game with the PS3. Afterall, for Sony to pack in a Sony game with the console is pretty cheap to do.

I'd say that if there's a price cut, it will most likely be of 100$, expect 2 new hard drive sizes and hopefully, both SKUs will come with a game. Maybe a more family friendly game like LBP for the cheaper version to attract the cheap ass casual gamer and a more "core" game with the more expensive model.

What a good package. Uncharted is a great game. I just reviewed it on my blog if any of you are interested in the game.
