Playstation 3 PS3 Bundles from £286.50 for 40gb and £301.50 for 60gb @ Virgin Megastores

£286.50

Found 9th Oct 2007
Just phones up my local virgin megastore, and from tomorrow they are offering :

40gb PS3 with extra controller and 2 games - £330

60gb PS3 with extra controller and 2 games - £350

60gb PS3 with 2 games and 2 blu-ray movies - £350

If you have a virgin credit card you get 10% off, not sure if it will be off total or total before bundle discount like last time so at the very most the bundles will be £297 for 40gb and £315 for 60gb.

Went in today and bundles are ANY 2 games with bundle, so choosing 2 £50 games like fifa 08 or transformers gives you even more discount with the 105 off credit card, making the bundles go down to £286.50 for 40gb or £301.50 for 60gb.

18 if you use a virgin credit card

Well worth using the credit card.

Voted Hot!

Gonna go for this tomorrow with my Virgin CC!

Are there any plans to bring out a higher spec. model soon, say before Christmas? I know that the US is getting a 80GB model.

Been waiting for the price to drop for ages, but that normally means a new package will be offered. The recent price reduction is just due to media pressure - poor sales compared to the Wii and Xbox 360.

The 40GB model has no backwards compatibility and half the usual number of four USB 2.0 ports - whats the point in that ???

The 40gb is the new console for christmas, theyre going for the price point rather than specs.

Heard that the 60gb might be fazed out completely, dont know if this is true.

It's true that once the 60GB PS3s have sold out they will not be sold anymore. But it is strongly rumoured that an 80GB PS3 will be released alongside the dualshock 3 early next year

Yep, the 80gb is just a rumour. The amount of times I've seen it mentioned on HUKD you'd think it'd just been announced.

I don't think we're gonna be seeing BC in any future PS3, thats why Im gonna buy mine this week as opposed to me buying it next year in time for GTA.

Hmmmm dont have a virgin card so cold

Couldn't the 80gig version still be based on the 40gig ps3 though with the same limitations? I.e. just a hard drive upgrade?

It could be and from from I've read it will probably either come with no backwards compatability or extremely limited BC, with a only a few ps2 games being able to be played on it. But then again it could come out fully backwards compatible, so we don't know at the moment.

How is it not a hotdeal? Its one of the best bundles out there, and if you happen to have a virgin credit card it makes it the cheapest way to buy a PS3 anywhere.

Forgot to add, when i phoned the guy at virgin he said that it includes a choice of any games, he didnt sound too sure but would be good if true.

Prices with Virgin Credit card discount as low as £286.50 for 40gb bundle and £301.50 for 60gb bundle.

How do you get the virgin card is it just apply would someone like me at 18 be able to get it now i have a job - dnt want ps3 but could do with 10% off

You need it in hand so will have to wait for it to arrive before using it for the 10%, it will affect your ability to borrow, and at 18 it's pretty hard to get a decent limit without a terrible APR so be sure to pay off straight away or you'll be paying the earth.

Just to reiterate, the bundles include a choice of ANY games, includes new and chart games like Sega Rally, Fifa 08, Tiger Woods 08, Coiln mcree dirt etc.

So probably the best Bundle available at the moment.

wow this is really the best deal. if i had a choice i would go for warhawk and fifa 08.

Why are they phasing the 60GB model out ?

Is it still worth buying one ?

Really? I only had a choice out of the standard 1st party games apart from Warhawk. Not that I mind as I have most of the other games on my 360.

I got Resistance and Heavenly Sword, which is what I wanted anyway.

They're phasing the 60GB model out because apparantly they are releasing an 80gb PS3 early next year, but this is only a strong rumour. However, the 80GB might not be fully backwards compatible and it probably won't have as good of a package deal as this. I just thought that this starter pack deal was good and the 80gb model isn't going to be that different.

Is this deal at all virgin stores ?

And just to confirm, I could get 60GB PS3 + Fifa 08 + Virtua tennis 3 + extra controller all for just £350 ???

They had a list of around 6 or 8 games on the bundle picture but when i asked at desk they said choose any. Might depend on manager/store, but it is possible.

Doesnt cost anything unless you dont pay it off every month, but will take a week or so to come through.

Original Poster

Would all the cold voters care to explain why?

Just to ask again, they are phasing the 60GB out simply because they are introducing the 80GB version, but is it still worth buying ?

Of course it is!

Its just a rumour. Ps3 HDs are upgradeable anyway so it doesnt really matter.I dont think we are gonna be seeing BC in any future models so buy now. Also, Virgin is being taken over next month so no more 10% discount.
