I've just picked up an 80GB PS3 with Infamous for £229.98 (£199.98+vat) from the Makro in Bristol (Cribbs Causeway).
They also had an 80GB PS3 with Killzone 2 for the same price.

The one I got was on clearance from £249.98+vat and the Killzone 2 was on clearance from £229.98. Funny as they have the PS3 on it's own for £255+vat!
Not sure if this is nationwide.

Unfortunately no sign of Killzone 2 on it's own for £11.49. That would have been a nice package!

How can this be cold?
#2
I thought it was quite a good deal!! Even if it's not available to everyone!

Excuse my ignorance but how do I upload photos?!
#3
Dunno why cold mate, someone probably jealous that they just paid £300, have 9 degrees of heat from me.
#4
You mentioned "clearance" - were these just one off's? that could be why people are voting cold.

If this is available nationwide and plenty in stock, it should get hot enough :thumbsup:
#5
this will get hot, good deal for ps3 and latest game:thumbsup:

The label did say "reduced to clear" on both the Infamous and Killzone ones but the Bristol Makro has just been "improved" and redesigned so they could be shifting a few old boxes to make room for new ones. I was going to ask but there wasn't anyone around...typically!

Taking into account if you want to sell Infamous, CEX will give you £24 cash for it, £206 is not a bad price for a PS3 (albeit without a game!)

9 degrees from me, thats flipping amazing, probably alot cheaper than you can find on 2nd hand ps3s from ebay and so on

#11
How much were there mate? I live in bristol too :p.
#12
Good deal and worth some heat.

The internet is saying the ps3 slim is being announced at GamesCon on the 18th though, so you may want to hold off and se how this ends up being priced.

There was only one on the shelf, maybe more but I didn't check. They had one of the Killzone 2 too.
Good luck!

Yup, unless you are desperate for one right away I'd wait. The new model is supposed to be a lot smaller and quieter as well as being cheaper.

Possibly, but I doubt they will be too different (just smaller and revised). The last thing Sony needs now is a RROD situation!

And if it turns out having a USB post at the back, it would be worth paying alittle extra :-D

Sony execs have said the cost of the PS3 components has dropped by 70% since launch. I'm assuming this is mostly the cost of blueray lasers, but none the less, theres more than enough room for PS3 to launch a lower cost version without cutting any corners.

Its rumoured to only be £40 cheaper

LMAO that literally ain't possible mate PS3's hardly make any noise.

Also the rumoured differences are no on/off switch at the back and otheros feature gone.
#24
as most of you say , "rumour" , so this is still hot until there is gonna be a PS3 slim lmao:p;-)
#25
Great if you're self employed. Maybe even a little profit in it for ebay?
#26
Voted hot, inFAMOUS is one of the best games I've played, love it.
#27
Slim will be here at the start of September... consider that not a rumour.

That said, the price cut the 80gb is getting wont drop it to less than it's selling for here, so this is still a good deal.
#28
Fantastic deal if you can get one - have some warmth.

Couldn't agree more. Wasn't one of my "wanted" games for the year but found it really good fun so much so that I went the extra mile for the Platinum trophy.

Mine isn't, like a lot of people mine sounds like a jet taking off after a bit of play.

This.

After 15-20 minutes the fans on mine kick in and becomes one of the loudest consoles I've owned :?

That said, these are 80GB consoles so the don't really suffer the same problem. Also when the Slim is out in a few weeks, the prices of these 80's won't be much different to this, so it is worth picking up one now if you want one!
#32
If it is noisy then let it breath! I bet it is either enclosed in tv/video cabinet, pushed up against wall or something else that means hot air is coming out the back and immediatly re-entering.

Place it on the middle of a table (not carpet e.t.c) and then turn on, does it make a (fan) noise after a while? if no then re think current position - if yes then you have a fault or dust blocking the inlet - remove with vacum or compressed air.

have a bit of heat.....
#33
I've been hearing the "ps3 slim" rumour for so long now i don't believe its coming (personally). It was announce at E3 that sony have no plans to release a slim ps3 but that may have changed...and why would the slim be cheaper than the older model.. surely it'll be more expensive so they can shift all the old models!

the 80gb model is whisper silent!! i got mine few weeks ago can't hear anything..m laptop is louder than the ps3 lol...

Great deal!! i'd get it...
#34
Mine is a 40gb one (so quite old) that I got in an argos deal about 6 months ago - it's very, very quiet...quieter by far than the Sky HD box is sits on top of. I definitely wouldn't hold off waiting for a rumourer quieter version - I know a few people with PS3s and you can't hear any of them.
And you should get one - put in a bigger hard disk and it's a great media centre.

going to makro today in Glasgow, heat added

Good luck! I hope you manage to get one :)

i read an article about the ps3 being 70% cheaper to manufacture.
they reckon that they will now be able to sell the ps3 and break about even, where as they were making a loss before.
Scorching deal.

Im waiting for the price cut, tho i fear that it wont see better prices than i saw around christmas last year when they had a ps3 with 4 games for £296. even with a price cut
#39
Sell infamous on ebay for £25 and youve got a 80GB PS3 for £205.. sounds good to me!

None in Southampton makro, console only priced at £254.98 exc. VAT
