The Playstation 3 Slim gets a huge price cut in Germany. It only costs you 238,99 euros.
If they keep up the price war, then you can bet many Germans will be online playing the best console this gen. Kudos!
Wow! Wasn't it like 299 euros? That's a good drop.
Yes it was 299, so if you plan to get a Ps3 do it now, it wont last long! Aldi started it with a bundle (second dualshock and wipeout HD fury) for 299€. Media Markt followed with the 240€ deal (console only, no games included). At the end (as always) Amazon lowered the price to counter Media Markt (also 240€) but gave you Borderlands free on top!! Unfortunately the Borderland bundle isn't available anymore.
How much in U$S are? this is something I want to know because in America is $300 but in Europe is €300, how much is the difference
300$ are 200€
man I can't believe you fail the basic math lol
€300 are $445 PS3 costs $560 here in Iceland, lucky Germans. :P (It was about $730 at launch here, I bought it at that price, it was and still is worth it :P)
Oh, the bias on this site!!! http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/...
in my country, SLIM is more pricey than fat ps3 :) ill logic :D ?
Germanys largest retailer have currently a strong price competition. ALDI (~4000 stores) started with a very attractive offering. Over night Mediamarkt and Amazon Germany discounted the PS3 also, to compete with this ALDI offering.
The PS3 FAT also cost 330 euro there before the price cut. PC gaming dominates in Germany, just look on Amazon as an example.
I checked Amazon.de and the price of a slim is 309€. 238,99€ for a used one. Please be more accurate when posting please.
It's 309€ if you get it over Home and Hardware. Go to "55 neu ab EUR 238,99" and choose the first one, it's Amazon, a new one of course, and only 240€
it's currently not available (out of stock) but still listed for 239€ btw: already #1 @Amazon.de game bestseller
when its 100 euros cause thats how much its worth.
So with that logic then I guess the 360 is worth 5 peso's Yea yea that's about right. Wait did I just say you had logic I must be slipping at this late an hour. To put it in playground terms your a dummy fuddy. And now in adult terms, mommie says your a mistake.
but you would buy the 120GB HDD for 100$ and Wi-Fi for 80$ and 50$ for XBL (every year)??
German hardware sales : August: 1. PlayStation 3 - 36.000 Stck 2. Wii - 35.000 Stck 3. Xbox 360 - 13.200 Stck September: 1. PlayStation 3 - 88.000 Stck 2. Wii - 31.200 Stck 3. Xbox 360 - 16.300 Stck (kudos to Japan-Fan for the original post in the Gamer Zone)
Obviously the 360 is selling less worldwide because people are waiting for the price to be dropped down to what it's worth, free with a 300 dollar rebate to cover the extra expenses you need to waste on it.

good facts there, bud. Have a bubble on me. >_^
thanks for the info
WOW another price cut shows how desperate Sony have become.
this is just a price fight between some large retailers in Germany, Sony is not involved in that
Meh your not even trying.
so are you
The Xbox 360 (and the Wii) are getting killed in Germany by the PlayStation 3. Xbots are so so sooo owned these days. Pathetic.
http://www.medion.com/ms/al... + a REAL Full HD game. No upscaled bs. Only on PS3.
Nice price !!! It's perfect ! XD
Worth Every Penny...er erm Euro or is it Cent... ;-P
Microsoft dropping the 360 price and all that is so so desperate.. Sony price drop is an absolute stroke of utter genius..
Sony has nothing to do with these pricecuts. It is the huge german retailers that are fighting amongst themselves. Good for consumers. Good for gamers. Good for Sony. Microsoft is getting killed these days. No price cut on earth will bring sales back for that piece of crap they call the Xbox 360. Microsoft failed another console generation. What else is new?
Bubble for u
Only German Media Markts and Aldis get cool stuff like this :(
Im being a little sarcastic, looks like you never picked up on it.. Check out the Walmart 360 Price promotion comments on another thread.. Oh and "Microsoft is getting killed these days. No price cut on earth will bring sales back for that piece of crap they call the Xbox 360. Microsoft failed another console generation. What else is new?" Fanboy rantings if ever I saw 1... Look, Sonys had a couple of really good months, but they are still in 3rd place.. Microsoft hasnt failed, they are making money.. Sony are losing it.. I dont think you understand the word Fail..
..Microsoft does not give a rats ass about consumers and their hardware and software are piss poor. Why has the RROD-issue never been fixed? Why are there no new IP'S? Why does it cost money to play on-line? Where is the Blu-ray? Where is the Wi-Fi? Where is the HD? Fanboy or not. Only a true idiot would buy an Xbox 360. Period.
Thats what it should be like here in sweden too. PS3 slim STILL costs over 400 USD.
Taxes/VAT included the PS3 is about USD 450 here in Denmark.
I think they're just hating on us vikings, 'cause y'know, we looted all their stuff back in the day. Now they have new stuff and are viking free so they make us vikings pay extra for getting them. That's my theory at least. :P
This is Awesome Germany deserves a price cut after a long time waiting for PS3 slim.
Sony aint in it to make money, they are here to make you feel all warm and loved.. 1...RROD yes theres still problems, but you get it fixed for FREE, unlike the £135 bill I had off Sony 14 months in.. 2...New IPs, there are, open your FANBOY Eyes.. 3...It costs to play online because Microsoft makes money from it duh. Sony had to do theirs for free because of Xbox live.. Its a long term plan from MS. I.E. Next time around the console will be close to FREE and theyll make their money from Live. 4...Theres NO blu ray?? Thats why MS is over 6 million in front. They could release earlier. PC titles!! --- No Blu ray.. 5. You pay extra for Wi-Fi.. Sony has it built in.. Sony cant get the cost down any lower because of all the built in extras.. Good move by MS.. Can keep the 360 cheaper at retail and make money on each console UNLIKE SONY. 6. HD LOOK again.. Oh and Sky on 360 is great... Check it out UK owners...
EasilyTheBest you need to look again cause you don't know what your talking Sony cares a hell of alot more then Microshit does. 1.RROD M$ haven't fix it yet what is taking them so long to fix one simple problem? Answer:Microshit is preying to god that it won't happen again but it does alreally is shows that M$ doesn't care. 2.Xbot don't have any new IPs why do fans care? Answer:Xbot fans cares because there going to be the ones buying the new IP so this shows you a dumbass EasilyTheBest. 3.Microshit online services cost money to play with your friends,also xbot live is helping M$ get money why haven't Sony doing the same thing? Answer:Microshit is a greedy company and all they think about is money, now with Sony they want to give that power over to the consumers to support their fanbase like the consumers did to the PS2. 4.Microshit don't have any Blu-ray or HD-DVD player in there xbot's why? Answer:There no such thing is no need for Blu-ray or HD-DVD thats a lie EasilyTheBest M$ was talking with Toshiba for HD-DVD in there console in tell they stop because M$ is too damn cheap to put them in side of 360, thats why have Sony PS3 with Blu-ray players built in them. 5.EasilyTheBest Question and Answer:You pay extra for Wi-Fi.. Sony has it built in.. Sony cant get the cost down any lower because of all the built in extras.. Good move by MS.. Can keep the 360 cheaper at retail and make money on each console UNLIKE SONY. 5.My Answer: the real reason Microshit charge extra for Wi-Fi cause their trying to milk xbot for every last drop of what its worth which is not worth it. Sony have built in Wi-Fi cause they just don't want your money and be like M$ but they want you to invest your money for a 10 year life cycle in the PS3. 6.M$ have no HD games all the games are in 480p by upscaling and EasityTheBest don't believe what M$ said in blogs,website articles cause their lying. 7.sky on the 360 well PS3 have free online also we have a web bowser so what else is new for 360 then nothing.
Well said DK_Kithuni_71 yea I agree where is all of this suff in xbot because I haven't seen none of it out of the box plus where is the real High definition games Microshit we never ask for upscale games that are clearly in 480p.
everyone goes apesh1t and laughs because microsoft is getting "desperate." ha, just an observation.
That's the truth. Just go look at the comments on the article about the $100 gift card at Walmart. That one was full of desperation theory idiots.
Your avatar gets me excited for Project Needlemouse. :)
Germans gotta have it.
I´m a Germany guy too! So my English speak is not the best;) .. Thanks to Aldi! For a Year, Aldi sell the PS2 for 99€ and not for 129€! Then MediaMarkt made a Price Cut too to 99€. In the same week Aldi sell the PS2 for just 77€! And 2 months later at E3 09 came the officiall price cut for it. And now the same play with the PS3!
