My mate has been looking for a 60gb console and I came across this one yesterday. Dont think you can find them anywhere else other then ebay.

Good price I feel for what you are getting. A saving of £159.96

Well done finding these in stock OP. Voted Hot!
#4
are they really rare now?? I am selly one for £300 with warranty, should I be asking more....?
#5
They are rare to buy in the shops. You will not find any in high streets now. (well I don't think you can)
#6
Sod that price. When they were on clearance they were going for £325ish afair.
#7
£300 with warranty is way to low

i would go up at least another £50 if not £100

:0
#8
430?

Bah Humbug
#9
why the hell is this deal going cold??? These are rare now, have more memory than the 40gb, are backwards compatible and have more ports!!!

Find one cheaper brand new!

I would be intrested if you are selling one.
#12
Its pointless.... I just got the press release that Sony might be releasing the 80gb with Motorstorm and the DUALSHOCK 3 here in the UK as soon as NOVEMBER!!!!

Rather wait................
#13


No they split the company up. The online bit remained as it was.
#14

Thats new, Sony have repeatledy said the 80gb wont be in the Uk. Care to spill the beans on your info :thumbsup:
Besides, the BC of the 60gb is the main draw, not the capacity.
#16
Apart from the extra 20 gig and backwards compatability ( I don't have a PS2) what other reason to pay so much, I don't see this as a great deal, sorry.
#17
Voted hot from me, it's expensive, but cheaper than anywhere else.

I sold my PS3 with one game for £450 the other day.
#18
40G PS3 is quieter and uses less electricity.

If you want to play PS2 games - use a PS2!

Sorry, COLD from me.

What if you want everything in one neat package?
And how many of you people that say "its quieter!" have heard the 60GB version? Its by no means noisy!

I work for a company that publishes the sad sony mags..................................

SONY need to get a bigger market share and obviously need to market the dual shock 3 controller now that their lawsuit is over.

This is why they are going to bundle it with the 80gb consoles which are only software emulated ps2 games like the uk 60gb models.

So to push production what Sony are doing is preparing the 80gb models in the 60gb model shells back at their plant..... so they can drip feed them in the market at XMAS time, you know like the wii.......

short of stock, out of stock, none available for the UK then mysteriously a few days before XMAS they are available everywhere.........................

unlike the Wii they PS3s will be readily available so that Sony can make a killer and by then the smaller chips are going to be cheaper to produce and they will have other 3rd parties making their LEDS for the blu ray :)

I didn't get the marketting job :(

True I suppose, but it doesn't play all the games anyway.

My mate has the 60G, my 40G is quite a bit quieter, due to it having the smaller CPU die, thus using less juice (no bad thing!).

Can't see why anyone would pay 430 for a 60G when I got a 40G + Fifa08 + Assasins Creed for 299.99 from Asda before X-Mas (as they didn't have Tiger Woods 08).

That's why I voted this bargain as COLD.
#23
might be a silly question but are PS3 and wii's region coded? ie:..by game and/or B'ray movies?

PS3 games - no.
PS3 Blue Ray - yes & no. Some are, most aren't

WI games - yes
No BR on Wii

I've yet to have a sp2 not work on mines. and stuff the planet and my electric bill!
But yeah, I wouldn't pay anything over £350 for a 60GB when a 40GB would suffice.

LOL, and im pretty sure they said the DS3 could be released as early as Q2 of 2008 when they released it in japan.

Im pretty sure me and csi smell something, and its not roses.:whistling:

LOL - We dont all have a time machine and can go back and get asda prices in december!

Find us a better price for the product and then its worthy of a cold vote. That the idea.

my ps3 60gb is silent unless I put my Lee majors hearing aid in :thumbsup:

Because there are games available only on the PS2 such as the FF, MGS series that are worth playing plus you can pick up cheap games on eBay, etc.

And I enjoy watching black and white movies as well :thinking:

I don't think this about whether you can find a cheaper one, its more about is it worth at this price? I think the answer is no.

hot from me, i posted similar but everyone voted cold, now rare brand new, good find!!

All the more so considering its the £350 rrp pack with TW added. Pretty sure the rrp of TW isn't £80:?
#33
whats the best 40 gig deal at the moment?
#34
there's an error with the link on the site, on the title it says Tiger woods pga 08, yet in the details it says pga 07..... which is it to be?

So you never play retro games? You are missing out big time! graphics are great but playability is the key to any game IMHO. Not to mention some people have a £200+ singstar collection that they dont want to have to re-purchase :thumbsup: Not me though - honest guv ;)

Plus an extra controller.

Everyone comparing it to 'this' console and 'that' console and 'another' console that 'might be released need to remember that this is a 60gb PS3, no more, no less.

It's an inflated price, but if someone can point out a better deal, please do so.

Still a bit of a con though. Pretty sure I made a few posts back then telling people who wanted them to buy them at the time, for some reason a few people were convinced that 'better' packages would come out nearer xmas. Obviously they didn't understand the concept of 'discontinued' :lol: But if somebody's desperate for one I suppose this is the way to go. Tbh though I VERY much doubt these will materialise.....

By the way, regarding the PM, I checked for the posts but they were gone. Must be a slight delay before they get purged;-)

Don't you know, you're supposed to leave the light on when there's nobody home ;-)
