It has just started selling in the UK for £199 at Sainsburys.
if the prices are actually going to stay this low ps3 is going to blow up into a massive hype again sort of like how not many people had a ps2 till 2 later when it went down abit well none of my friends did lol then ps2 was talk of the town cause everyone could offard it
permanent 199 price would rip sales charts
im gonna finally get me a bluray player
Just like the PS3 price drop and great new game(UC2) Sony could do the same this year with GT5. The PS3 slim is cheaper than the fat to manufacture but I doubt it could drop to $199 if does however it's gonna pump life to the console war PS3 vs. Wii.
ps3 and wii are at war??
Dang. It's for the fatty. I already have a fatty. I was hoping to get a couple slims.
I didn't even know they made 160 GB fats. Do they still make fat PS3's?
€200 in belgium with 4 games and 2 controllers at Saturn if my fat one gets YLOD again i will buy a new one cuz repair costs almost 200, fuck BC, i still have 2 PS2 consoles(and BC on the PAL 60 gig PS3 is glitchy anyway)
This is one heck of a deal for anyone who has yet to pick up a PlayStation 3, or would just like to have a second one.
Yeah, it's quite a fair price! Just in time for GT5!
is that of a fat PS3. Still a great price if it's the fat PS3.
now, if Sony would make that price cut official...
If thats a fat, leave it, go for the Slim, even if you pay extra. Much less power consumption, smaller chips, less heat, less chance of YLOD. With this gen solder without lead is used, and every single bit of heat you can reduce, reduces the possibility of solder that breaks on the GPU/CPU's pins and brings RROD/YLOD...
I thought you were a MS fanboy. How things have changed since last year.
Yeah I've noticed a load of The Mart postings have level headed and or positive things to say about the PS3 now. Shame the the user name is like the tattoo of your ex girlfriends name, always having xboxkings in your user name will keep anybody at 1 bubble in a PS3 thread....no matter what u post.
F*ck that, I'd take the 60gb any day of the week over a slim. The slim is the poor mans ps3. The 60gb is the premium and absolute best. 4 usb ports, memory card slot readers, backwards compatibility, chrome trim, spiderman lettering, the classic power switch, and just plain looks better than the slim (no offense to slim owners). If my ps3 does crap out, I'm buying another 60gb. I cant ever see a slim ps3 replace my 60gb ps3 unless there are no more 60gb ps3s available.
my original 160 gig is still alive (and with a new 500 gig hdd)
Yeah but I have 40GB Fat PS3 and have had it since almost launch with no problems. I am extremely happy with my fatty
Ill need 2 get Slim, my PS3 died the other day, PROPER died, couldnt even fix it
Yes, I Was Going To Get A PS3 Too When The rice Drops, This Is Brilliant, Now I Can Play Xbox 360 Exclusives & PS3 Exclusives (Cant Wait For GT5).
Dude Stop Writing In Capital Letters.
I ask people every time why do they write like that with a capital letter before each word....never ever do i get a reply back.
Thumbs up for being incredible.
This whii mean the end of this so called console war .. Hmm remember the last time ps3 had price cut
If Sony announce a price drop this week it could hit Kinect sales pretty hard I feel as people will consider a PS3 instead of Kinect. A price drop in time for christmas would be perfect timing. Blu-ray can't be holding it back anymore as you can pick up a blu-ray player for £40 for a PC now so diodes are not too expensive anymore. They could sell at $199 and still make a nice profit and blow MS out the water this christmas.
Holy shit, 199? Wow if this price drop is official, and not just some crazy deal, shits going down. Edit: Just checked the site, its still 299, http://www.hhgregg.com/Prod...
@ im-12-years-old I Write With capitals Before Each Letter Because Its A Habit
That doesn't make it any less annoying lol
That's just weird.
I prefer the look of the fat one to match the glossy tv and xboxS, uses more electricity but seeing how it's only for blu ray thats fine, you can't beat that deal but this kid was selling a ps3 fat with dj hero,modern warfare 2, and medal of honor for $225. I got there to late he just sold the console for $185. The ps3 and xbox can be had for cheap cause there's so many versions of them which we all win in that case but I would bother getting a used xbox if it wasn't a slim model.
I still don`t think the PS3 needs a price cut to be honest. The PS3 has been selling tremendously, demolishing the 360, and nearly even with the Wii for the year despite being more expensive than both. Not only that, but Sony is making solid profits on PS3s now, I just don`t see the rush for a price drop. That`s not to say a price drop is a bad idea, because a $200 PS3 will ruthlessly trample anything that gets in it`s way, you better believe that.
Hopefully they don't try to force a new HDTV on you with it, as their employees are on commission.
Very nice price. Apparently its with a $100 rebate OR a giftcard through Email. Still, thats a very nice deal.
it will die soon like every ps3 (like the 60,20,40 and others gb models)
lay of the crack my friend it is melting your brain
my 60gb fatty still alive you monkey-troll !!!!
my 80gb still going after near 2 years and outlasted all 3 of my 360s...
PS3 for $249 is next up and maybe even for Christmas 2010 or $299 with GT5 included. Sony is looking to beat out the $199 360 and their flagship game can be the tipping point. Polyphony Studios only has to make 2 games per PS system. GT6 will be launch title for PS4
