Breaking my lurking silence to post a first deal!

Visited the Argos bargains store in Stanley this afternoon on the off chance of a cheap PS3 to play the Uncharted series on, after playing Golden Abyss on the Vita.

Surprised to find a big bargain star across a wall of PS3s saying "All PS3 consoles now £119.99"

They had 120Gb's 160Gb's and yes......loads of 320Gb's......less than £120 for a 320Gb Ps3 - I'll have one of those, thanks!

Can't imagine the 120's will go at any great speed ;)

Will post receipt proof as soon as I can work out inline URLs!

Great deal - although HUKD-ers should be aware that the £119.99 price is actually only available to those who are able to win the competition of entry. To enter, simply drive (or worse, bus) into Stanley and try not to get stabbed or set alight - winners will be selected at random. I jest, Stanley isn't too bad, now Consett on the other hand...

Potentially, yes.

What I will say is the one I have here is absolutely immaculate, so if it's a refurb, I'd say it's a full manufacturer refurb and all absolutely as brand spanking new.

I'm an xbox owner and just wanted to play uncharted, so I figured if the games were £45 each at launch, if I can get the games and the machine for less than £150...it's like I got the machine for free as I would have bought them new if they weren't PS exclusive.

If a customer returned a truly faulty good, then Argos would probably return them to the supplier/manufacturer. However as we all do with Argos, we return things that just aren't for us, or we have changed our minds about. These are the goods that can't be sold as new. Can't be returned to the manufacturer/supplier, hence is sold at a clearance price.

Occasionally some faulty stuff gets into the mix, e.g. items that are hard to test for reliability being turned on once for example. To take the PS3 for instance. There may be a PS3 with a faulty fan, that isn't noticed till you've been gaming for an hour and your console overheats and starts crashing. To Argos, this might be sold as a fully working clearance product...

It's a lottery basically. But with the odds often in your favour.
