For £20 more can't you get a brand new Slim console from Sainsbury's via their 20% off deal, and have 40GB more and an updated model...?

Ah, but for an extra £50 on top of the £180, you could get a 500GB HDD & enclosure, to install yourself and install the old 120GB in the enclosure (to use as a backup drive). Its very easy to upgrade the PS3 HDD

The Blu Ray Player is worth £100, so you're getting the console for just £79.99p. Good deal.

You may find this is possible on the PS3 now.

Ermm...no you are getting a Blu Ray Playing console for £179.99...the Blu Ray Player isn't worth £100 as its a games console that happens to play Blu Rays, and whilst the PS3 is a decent enough Blu Ray Player, it is not a match for a dedicated player.

I got the last 250gb in Gateshead on Friday. :)

Plenty of 120gbs though.

Errm no! The PS3 is an excellent Blu-ray player. I use it with the Optical out to my Surround Sound system and the set up is outstanding.

Agreed.
I'm not a massive fan of the PS3, but I must say, Blu-Ray playback is better than the majority of dedicated players I've seen!

I think the community of dedicated Hi Fi enthusiasts would know more, I own and use a PS3 myself but notice connected to my receiver it lacks sonically the dynamics of even my older dedicated Profile 1.1 Sharp Blu Ray Player.

The 120gb with definitely have firmware 3.41 on, or lower.

I agree. Also, the Blu-Ray Remote Control (around £15) is very good and well worth the cash to improve your multimedia experience on the PS3. (I even used it as an extra controller in Little Big Planet to complete multi-player areas).

Not if you want a single remote control experience it isn't, the Logitech Harmony add on is extortion to turn the PS3 into a multimedia experience, and as I said :

Cicobuff is the PS3's worst owner. He comments on most PS3 deals and tries to give a negative side. If theres a PS3 topic, 9 out of the 10 times Cicobuff has commented!

This is a good deal, well spotted.

this is why they should bring in a minimum age on HUKD. Start at age 8 to get rid of infants like this oO

More like a realist, I never said this was a bad deal, I was commenting on how ridiculous it was to say you are getting a games console for £79.99 because the Blu Ray side of the console is "worth £100"

It is as ridiculous as saying the Xbox 360 is a cheaper games console because the DVD Player side of it is worth £30, or the PS3 or the Wii is a cheaper games console because the web browser replaces a laptop or a netbook.

As a owner of a Wii, 360 and PS3 I don't need to be a defensive fanboy on any of the 3 current gen consoles, and can see positive and negative sides in each.

I think Sony know how to make Blu-Ray players, since they like invented them.

xbox dvd drive analogy doesn't work because most people already own dvd players - so you wouldn't buy an xbox for the dvd player.. however many people who buy a ps3 do not own a blu-ray player..

So in your opinion then buying a dedicated Sony Blu Ray Player would be worthless because you may as well buy a PS3.

Because of course, Sony know how to make Blu Ray Players, as long as they put all the quality of one in a PS3 but forget that the circuitry and DACs in a dedicated Blu Ray Player should be better. oO

Paid this for a 2nd-hand 60GB a month ago!
To add fuel to the debate, it's not just a blu-ray player, it's a 120GB online media hub too!
Unlike many stand-alone players, the Blu Ray also automatically recieves updates like BD-Live & 3D without effort or cost.
Admittedly, my ears are not tuned to recognise the difference between a flea burp and a gnat [email protected] but I'm sure that I'd be paying a lot more for all my audio kit if they were!

Great Deal!
