Adverts are plastered all over the tabloids this morning. Most are offering a chart game at half price when you buy a 40gig version.

If PS3 does win this generation, we'll all look back and say, this was the point the tide turned.

And dont forget, this is PS3s first real christmas as in being available all over the world, with stock and games to boot. I think they will do well.

i think the best deal ive seen is the 60gb playstation with any 2 games from a selection all for £349, now that is a barging. oh i think it was argos if anyones interested.

Since there are many good games coming for the PS3 in this quarter of the year that alone will probably lift the sales of consoles. In order to confirm how important the price is they should do a comparison between the number of sold 40GB vs 60GB version. If it´s say 5-1 (40GB-60GB) then it´s confirmed how important price is.

Go PS3 Go. Time to catch up.

Edit: PS3 is Number 2 on Amazon UK now.
