Playstation 3 Console 320GB + More - £175.50 @ Asda (Instore)

Found 29th Dec 2011
Hope this helps somebody, as I'm chuffed to bits with this deal.
I've just been to ASDA Gateshead to see how much the slim ps3 were!

The 160gb are £189, but the 320gb was £234 but on special for £175.50 on the SEL (Shelf Edge Label)... So straight away I got the sale assistant to grab me one out the back...
When she came back with a 320gb I noticed on the box it says you get a free blu-ray Karate Kid (which was in the box) and you get to pick a selected Special game.
The woman said it would be Ratchet and Clank; All 4 One... She scanned the ps3, then the game, came to a total of £175.50.

There showing £234 online with the blu-ray but no mention of the game. But if you click the link and look at the box, that sticker on the top right corner states the blu-ray and a special game.

QUICK EDIT; Version was 3.66 on the firmware before I updated

Interesting...

Interesting indeed, can we get some proof of this? A picture of a receipt maybe?
After the whole HMV prank last month, I can't always believe PS3 deals like this haha.

A quick upload to TinyPic, and then sticking the link above or in a comment would do.

Haha OP was ready for the show proof comments

Thank you for the proof! WHAT a deal!!
Honestly is, I'll be calling up Asda tomorrow to check if they have stock in the Coventry store.
Really hope they do, my 40GB fat PS3 is starting to die on me! :'(

HEAT ADDED.

Its not a mistake, I work for ASDA myself, if the SEL is the way it was we've just got it on offer/special what ever you wish to call it.
I only bought one because the old phat one doesn't do DTS-HD with my Onkyo surround, so thought I'd sell my old one and get a new one.
Just sending my date across from my old to new one.

Just thought this deal would help somebody. Ignore my discount, as I stated I work there. But £175.50 is an absolute bargain.

Great deal. In fact, I'm tempted to go for this to replace my ageing/noisy launch 60GB unit. What was the extra £17.55 discount on the receipt for?

EDIT: Just seen your comment about the extra discount.

Thanks for that mate, yeah I work there, I got an even better deal but if I didn't work there I'd still of paid £175.50. I popped in Tesco before hand and there cheapest 160gb was £199.99, so for a 320gb I thought this was my best buy of the year.

Damn I'm working in the morning and I now by the time if there was any at my local asda they will be all gone by the time I finish, do I go now lol?

This is going to get hot hot hot hot hot !! inferno !!!

I was just speaking to my mate there and he said I should of tried with another game rather than Ratchet and Clank! If anybody does try with another game, and it works let me know and I'll edit my post.
To be honest I'll never play this game, it'll go towards a trade in on another new game. But the blu-ray I'll watch as its ment to be an amazing picture and sound quality one to watch.

Can you trade in consoles too?

Your old one did do DTS-HD, it just fed it to your amp via PCM, the slim PS3s allow you to feed to your amp via bitstream or PCM, difference being if via bitstream your amp will decode the audio and display the information rather than if you PCMed it to your amp, whereby your device does the decoding (in this instance the PS3)

What's the firmware version for this one?

Guys, sorry to ask a dumb question.

Please could you all tell me which is the best game console among all? Wii? Xbox? PS 3 etc,,,?

Thanks

I was thinking of buying a PS3 exclusively for FFXIII-2 (which will come out in Feb), you guys reckon it's worth picking this up just to play it or should I eBay or wait for a better deal?

The answer to that question can only be dependent on what sort of gaming genres you like, whether it be casual gaming or not, or whether you want a full multimedia machine or not, and whether multiplayer interests you or not.

So straight away I got the sale assistant to grab me one out the back...

Tut tut...what is the world coming to?

well done OP, someone for once has proof of a stonking deal, not like the usual no proof wonders looking for hot deals, this is a stonker and deserves huge heat, Well one

I tried Bitstream and PCM, neither came up on my Onkyo display DTS-HD, only DTS. I had a quick look on the net and it said the only ones didn't do the decoding for DTS-HD! My blu-ray player on the other hand came up DTS-HD straight away with my blu-rays.
Oh well, I'm not fussed, I've got a good deal here lol.



It was 3.66, but updated it to 4.00 just so I could transfer all my data across.



I had a funny feeling people would as for proof, so I posted, then quickly took a few photos of the box, console/games and paperwork

seems store specific?
called 3 of edinburgh's 24hr stores and staff checked prices, all confirm £234 with Battlefield 3.

good find for those that can get it.

Managed to get one in Glasgow Govan! Thanks! Goodbye launch console which is starting to die. You are being given away to a brother.

Did you get the same game or was there others on offer?

I just went down to my 24hr ASDAS in cardiff and it was showing the normail price, is it in selected stores or something?
