nice deal would turn out cheaper than the 280 deal for just ps3 but wat they should do is have a selection of games and pick one game plus 40gb console for 299.
voted hot and repped
#2
Thanks ^^^

If you put a bit of effort, this would actually be cheaper then the Shopto price, because Fifa 08 is an easy sell for £30-35, considering it is a new game.

So the price could work out about £265 for the PS3 on its own :).
#3
blackwood store have got a handwritten sign up below these posters saying or any other game in top 10, not sure if this is nationwide as the poster was very ghetto lol

Very good deal...possibly even better than Shopto's deal. Voted hot.
#6
That's a good price considering Fifa is always a game that retains it's value for a while, so you can play it for a while and exchange it at places like CEX, as Rbentley suggested and get the console and a free rental for a lower cost for the console on it's own. :)
#7
Have Blockbusters still got that 'voucher book' deal for £25??? Could that save us even more?

isnt this the cut down version wiv some stuff removed

isnt this the cut down version wiv some stuff removed


Yeh, u cant play PS2 games and its a slightly smaller hard drive, but thats it!
#10
Voted Cold, this is the stripped down version wthout backward compatibility, less USB ports and other things
#11
It has 2 less USB ports (why would you need to use all 4) and who the hell wants to play PS2 games anyway when you have a PS3!

Voted hot.
#12
you can get xbox 360 plus fifa 08 for under £250
#13
You cant vote cold because its a cut down version???
thats the whole point they have cut out the arguably almost pointless features, and reduced the price.

You can argue all day about whether en end of line 60gb is better value (which of course it is) but...

Good Price/Good Deal as far as I can see (definition of good deal/price, cheaper/better price than similar spec system elsewhere on web/high street)

but why would you pick an Xbox over a PS3??
#15
They are scrapping the 60gb ver (with backwards compatibility) hence why it is selling for 349 from 10th October with 2 games - to get rid of stock. Oh, and BTW the 40gb ver also doesn't have the chrome trim apparently.

How does that make this deal cold...you're not voting on the product, you're voting on the whether the price is good or not? This price is potentially cheaper than any other retailer if you trade in FIFA08 at somewhere like CEX :roll:
#17
Voted HOT. I have the "full" PS3 and don't play PS2 games and like PAUL7331 said why would you want to when you have a PS3? I only ever use 1 USB port at a time and have never used the memory card reader either! Good deal if you ask me especially when I paid over £400 for mine!

... Erm because its BETTER and more POWERFUL :giggle: (I have a 360,PS3 and Wii) - just compare ANY games (esp multiformat) to see how inferior the PS3 is :giggle: :giggle:

I know I shouldn't really rise to the bait but one look at GT5:Prologue makes your statement look silly :giggle:

the best is yet to come...devil may cry 4, metal gear, gta4, god of war 3, the getaway give it time, (as the xbox has been out far longer then the ps3) then see what you think :p

NEVER confuse hardware power with bad programming.

FACT is none of the software houses have yet got to grips with the PS3, it is however a much more powerful system technically, and at some point it wil eclipse the 360 (which is from a programmers perpective just a decent PC hence the current ease of programming)

FYI i also own all 3 consoles and there is no doubt the PS3 is streets ahead in power and potential, however the 360 has better games (and more of).

Which has no WIFI or HD Film Playback, add those to the X360 and your looking at another £160!
#24
The price is now about right (real shame that it had to be stripped of PS2 compatibility to get there).

To be honest though, it's a games console and as a gamer I'll wait till it has enough good & unique PS3 titles to make it a worthy purchase. Looking at Sony's release schedule that for me looks like next April/May (by which time there will undoubtebly be a further price cut). :)

Is anyone else completely fed up with the constant 'my system's better than yours' rubbish? This sites about finding the cheapest deal for a particular product, and even if you think the PS3 isn't worth it this is still a very good deal in comparison to most other retailers.

Voted hot.
#27
I completely agree...the recent 'debate' if you can call it that is getting tedious.
#28
i have the 360 and the Wii and the PS3

i pissed off i bought the PS3 as there in nothing worth playing on it.. not turned it on for 2-3 weeks. however it is a great machine and i will be happy when some games come out.. but till the then i remains the most expensive paper weight i have ever bought

Your 60GB unit has 4 USB ports and memory card readers, as well as backwards compatability, which allows you to play PS2 games.

The 40GB version only comes with 2 USB ports, no memory card readers and does not have backwards compatability, so it can't play PS2 games but it can play PS1 games (which obviously the 60GB unit can too).

Apart from that there are only some minor cosmetic differences...the chrome strip is matte silver on the 40GB version and the vents near the USB ports have been removed.

http://www.game.co.uk/PS3/Hardware/~r332728/Sony-PlayStation-3-Console-40GB/

This PlayStation 3 model does NOT feature:

* Backwards Compatibility with PS2 Games
* Memory Stick Card Readers
* SACD Playback
* Ethernet Cable
* 4 USB Ports, this model features 2.


The new 60GB starter pack will also come with two first-party games.

so that is all you can still connect wirelessly to the i net? still play online? wireless controllers etc?
#33
Yep, everything else is the same.

... I am not at all confused m8 :roll: Ive got a BSc(Hons) in Software Engineering so i do have some knowledge. Without getting all technical when it comes to building and running GAMES (not spreadsheets) the 360 is just better designed for it, both in terms of hardware and development tools. I dare say PS3 will be 'wait till the next games come out' till the PS4 is released and never catch up to the 360. Yes, those GT5 screenshots look nice, but after downloading the video from PSN I personally think the 30fps speed really harms it (as with a few PS3 games). The one thing I do like the look of (hence why i bought a PS3) is HOME and Little Big Planet (but Im still waiting). At the end of the day, all i know is i have a 360 with about 80 games, a Wii with about 20 games all of which i enjoy. I spent 400 quid on a PS3 and have 3 games (RFOM,Motorstorm and F1) and arnt that impressed by any of them :-( ... Yes there will be good PS3 exclusives (unlike Lair/H Sword) such as GOW, but why buy a PS3 right now ?!?!? Without been too negative and PS3 bashing, I do have to say at least it is more reliable unlike the 360 which ive gone through 4 :thumbsup: Also two of my 360 owning buddies also have a PS3 and they think its superior and the sun shines out of its AC socket ... so each to there own :thumbsup:

BC is overrated anyway. Sure, it's been handy to us early adopters who haven't had much else to do with our machines other than play PS2 games. But despite the popular line, the PS3 is getting a good array of titles this winter, albeit in many instances games that are also available on 360, and 2008 is looking rosy, so there's going to be less of a need to give two hoots about playing last gen games.

Who spent any time over the last three years playing PSone games on their PS2?

No, please do go technical...I for one am interested in hearing the reasons and please don't patronise everyone next time, some of us do have an understanding albeit limited.

BTW only the replays in GT5:Prologue will be at 30fps, it has been confirmed that the actual ingame action will run at 60fps.

80 games?? how much do all those games cost?? think your xbox must be modded within an inch of it's life - likewise for your wii too since for the life of me can't come up with a list of more than 4/5 games i play on my wii..
