I get the impression that there is a ton of stock left as places are STILL taking pre-orders and guaranteeing launch day delivery.
If this continues I expect a quick price drop and the removal of the silly bundle deals people are doing.
If you can, wait a few weeks is my suggestion (for what it is worth).

I can confirm that certain stores have a vast amount of surplus stock and if you want the console come saturday you'll be able to walk into the store and buy one...not good news for the best console...oh well

Dixons are doing it with free delivery, there's a £15 off voucher. If you buy via Egg card you also get 5% off. There's a possible quidco on top of that, but I have yet to have that confirmed.

I've managed to get it for £390.00 via the Dixons route.

Although, if you want a game with it, there are some other deals which give you the game at an effective £15-£20.

Hope it helps.

I bet there will be a big price drop before Xmas. Don't think even that will tempt me though.

Wahooo....

Recieved a call from GAME. Mines been allocated. Pickup on Friday!
So going to cancel the Amazon preorder by calling them up!

They have 112 machines this week, and only a few spare.

So I really doubt this is going to be a FLOP at this price.

Yes it may go down. but hey thats with all consoles. :thumbsup:

In console terms, 112 is a small allocation for a shop and they'll be dissapointed to have spares on release day.

Enjoy your PS3 though as i think it's an awesome bit of kit but just overpriced in my opinion. :thumbsup:

:giggle:

Is that all Game are going to have?LOL

I know a certain store :whistling: who will have more spare machines than game have in total.

The console wont flop too many people will still buy it...I'll wait for a price drop or the certain title im waiting for.Whichever comes first.

I've just pre ordered mine on virginmegastores website, 10% off for using a virgin credit card and 5.5% quidco hopefully so around £360 quid.
now to get a game lol
#15
i spoke to my mate in comet they had 27 delivered only 5 preordered!
#16
its going to flop, its 7th in the console rankings at the minute, I can't see the European launch helping it alot for a while yet anyway. Cancelling my pre-order, unless anyone else wants to buy it?

In Norther Ireland BTW

Sorry to go off topic but, any console that has stock on shelves in the first month of release would appear to be doomed to failure.

The illusion of an item being sold out due to demand only drives the demand further so any replen stock is snapped up instantly.

Things may pick up for Sony and it might be a sellout, but i wont be jumping on the bandwagon for a while to come.
#18
it might not sell very well but I wont say it will be a failure

you will never know what happen if sony do reduce the price, how many people would jump at having a blueray player less than £400?

or just wait till christmas when more exclusive titles are here and all the kids starts to rule the world :)

everyone was optimistic when xbox came out.. but even now ps2 still have better sale than xbox even 360
Ill wait and see

I dont think its appropriate to discuss these here.. as its a deal request forum not a console bashing forum. some people have their preference so let them be.
I own a 360 and not buying a ps3, do you hear me stop people from buying?
I for 1 will definitely buy a ps3 no doubt about it, its just there is no games I fancy yet. Once pro evo is out, Im going to buy one regardless of the price, and I can tell you there are at least thousands in pro evo fans are waiting to do the same.

15 hours to gooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! who's queing up @ the shops???

I bought my tent package from the hot deals section on here, will be using it tonight. It's a decent sized 2 man tent so should be able to accommodate everyone else that is in the queue also.
#21

#22
Funny cos there's people starting to queue in shops to get one for midnight ? Dont know why they just dont get one off tinterweb. This why I think ebayers will still sell their stock as some people cant be bothered to look about. Argos orders are being sold when argos are still accepting orders -daft.

Even worse news for Sony now it's confirmed that UK PS3's have serious backwards compatabilty problems with PS2 games due to the crappy cheap emotion chip clones that are in them meaning that about 90% of the old back catalogue won't work in them.

yer but there will be a patch ! to fix it:P

PSTHREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Dixons are still pushing the PS3 on their homepage as they clearly have stock. But they are very unspecific about delivery date which suggests they ain't treating it differently to any other product they sell which means it will turn up a week late. Surely they must be aiming for delivery on launch tomorrow - that's the whole point of having a launch date!!!

Anyone had any delivery confirmation off them for tomorrow?

Guys, the best deal was give to those who queued in London at Virgin till midnight. they all got a free flat screen tv!!!!

Ehhh??? :? I'd have brought one for that alone and sold the PS3

After a quick trip round the shops in Peterborough this morning, they seem to be in plentiful supply everywhere. I'll wait till Sony get desperate and slash the price on them.

Almost feel sorry for those that brought them to sell on for a profit on eBay..........HA HA HA HA HA!!!! Yeah right!!!!
