This remote control uses Bluetooth wireless communication to operate playback of Blu-ray Discs (BD) and other types of disc media on the PlayStation 3 system.

Cheapest I have seen this product, was stickered up with a 'sale' sticker @ 12.99, they had tons of them in the Barnsley store. Hope this helps someone, instore only i'm afraid.

is that Game online or instore? cos the online game website is actually run by Gameplay - bottom of page:

I thought it was £12.99 but only if you were buying a PS3?

there was nothing to say that in the Barnsley store, just a sale sticker saying £12.99

good deal, hoooot!

They werent marked down at Coleraine when I was in earlier. I wasnt looking specifically for them but was thinking that tesco had them cheaper than the price they were at there which IIRC was £16.97 or something like that.

same, went to game in several different places to check this out but all saying 12.99 when purchased with a ps3

op did u buy this dude? or are u posting up what u saw?

Can see this dropping below the £10 after Xmas. Not in any need for it at the moment so will wait till then.

Great price though, good to see it gradually falling.

I have no time to the store, but still it's hot

Whats the point? Why not just use the controller or am I missing something?

Does anyone need another remote. I already have 3 to many.

Yeah can confirm the price in the Barnsley store too, saw them the other day.

Is this really worth getting when the controllers are wireless? I can't decide if it's worth it...

Not a bad price. I reckon we'll be able to get it for 9.99 sooner or later

depends on the actual user
my father can never understand the dualshock3, i bought him a ps3 as a bd player last year and hes still clumsy to use it and cant decide which button to press
this is more like a normal dvd player remote - d-pad, enter, play, stop, eject ,etc

great deal, thanks

I'll check the price at stores in Preston tomorrow.

bought through play.com maybe better deal?

Last time I went into my local game store, they told me they don't stock the official ps3 remote instores and I've never seen one @ Game (except online)

If you use your PS3 for watching DVDs or other media a lot, fiddling with the controller becomes a pain, especially when it turns itself off after 5 minutes. I recently got the remote myself and it does make the PS3 far easier and nicer to use as a media centre. Also reduces wear and tear on the (rather expensive) DS3 controller.

Won't be under £10 for a long time yet, I imagine. It's the peripherals where Sony can claw back some money, they're never going to be that cheap.

I'm pretty sure this is only when making a purchase of a PS3 to get this price.

Does anybody know if this will work on a pc over bluetooth?

bargain

Why not just order it online along with a pre-order for £12.99 using the lastminute09 code (order this, order a pre-order, enter code at checkout (assuming its still valid), wait until this is packed with £5 discount and then cancel pre-order).

Well if I finally decide to get a ps3 soon ill definitely be getting the remote as well.

have some heat

I think i'm in this camp. As the DuelShocks are now wireless, there is little point in a remote.
However my housemate does have a lot of trouble understanding how to do things with the DS3!

The price of £12.99 is only valid if you buy a PS3 console (SLIM) at the same time.

Yes.

Its handy, runs off batteries aswell, so if your controller is out of charge you dont have to sit down by your console to play a dvd.

pretty sure this is only if ur buying a PS3 slim!

The remote gives you all of teh functions you need without having to bring up the silly video menu like you do with the dual shock. Very handy to have for the price. WOuld recommend so - HOT!!!!

I've just nipped into the local game (Telford) during my lunch hour and these remotes were priced up as 17.99. I asked the assistant to price check it and he said it was deinitely 17.99 and was only 12.99 when purchased with a PS3.

Has anyone actually managed to get one of these at this price instore?

Why is this really needed?

You will not get one for £12.99 unless you buy a PS3 slim also!

Read the thread and find out.

Ah, the chappie in the shop didn't mention that, he just said "PS3". Anyhoo, I still don't think that you can get one for this price instore.

Great find!

Great find!



no its not - you need to buy a PS3 to get it at this price!

Nice find. HOT!
