My PS3 just died and I've been on the hunt for a new one for a couple of days, this seems to be the best around (famous last words)...

PS3 250GB (slim) + Choice of 2 games + Play TV

Available online and instore, to reserve select special offers and pick offer 3.

The choice of games is: Infamous, Little Big Planet, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Gran Turismo Prologue, Motorstorm, Resistance 2

The next best deal I can see is at Play.com for the 250gb console and God Of War 3 or Modnation Racers for £269.99.

Hope someone finds this helpful.

adamuk82 - Can I ask which model your old PS3 was which has just died?

Great deal by the way.

Thanks, I had the 40GB, seems the laser died or something, won't read any of discs. Have you had a similar problem?

I've had two 40GB units die with that problem. The first time, Sony replaced it within warranty. The second time they fixed it even though it was outside warranty.
Both times the machines lasted around 10 months which was a bit weird.

My repaired 40gb is due to go pop anytime soon.
You can get replacement drives plus there is some book on the net about how to fix your PS3..not sure if it is a con or not.

games are not that good tbh

I had an old 80GB which died on me in the same way and I got £80 for it on Ebay. I was amazed that it would be any use to anyone - in fact I almost binned it !!

Yea, I am going to try and ebay mine, just waiting to see if I can get the original retailer to repair it for me following finding this page.. whatconsumer.co.uk/fau…-3/ and seeing the success some people have had there.

Sorry, but voted cold - I got my Slim for £200 from Sainsbury's - 2 Games plus Play TV do not cost £100 (more like £60-70) - so it doesn't seem like a good deal to me.

That doesn't help anyone as that offer was a special deal at the end of last year only (I picked one up at that price too). If you could still buy it for that price then that would be a good reason to vote this deal cold, but its ridiculous to base your cold vote on a deal that hasn't been available for 7 or 8 months.

Wow a 250gb for £200, or was it more like a 120gb?
You can add £30 for that difference.

amazon deals better you get 120gb a hdmi lead and a choice of any game from a list and there all new release games (including red dead redemption) for 260

then you can use the left over £40 to buy a 500gb hard drive so in the end you will get a 500gb ps3 slim red dead redemption and a hdmi lead for £300 and have a spare 120gb hard drive you could probably sell for £15-£20
