I still prefer the slot loader, but can't grumble at sub two ton!

Yeh, design wise I'm not hugely impressed, but for a cheap, decent sized HDD and two awesome games (we'll assume GTA V will be, naturally..) aesthetics can be ignored IMO!

Just a quick note, shouldn't the title read super slim?

Regardingless, given that there was a similar deal for £189.99 for the 500GB Super Silm and GTA - adding what is supposedly one of the best games of the generation for just another £10 seems like an amazing deal.

Heat added.

it is a good price but we all know at least GTA V will come to the next gen consoles, it is bound to happen. on the off chance it doesn't, cloud will be available.

Silly reasoning - this is a good deal at this moment in time.

Gaikai streaming won't hit UK for a while, and even then we don't know how much it will cost or what games you will have access too.

Not on launch you won't, you'll have to wait until sometime next year, and they're having problems with it.

Why buy a ps4 on launch when ps3 is still going to be supported? Id rather wait a few months and get over the initial problems and wait on a price drop.

Good price IMO so heat added.

Because I'm not interested in the PS4 (or the XbOne for that matter) but I do like the look of Last Of Us.

Still seems a lot for that as GTA V will be available for my 360 and I don't need a bluray player or media device ...... hmmmm .....

Hypothetically someone has been #team360 all of this gen and decide to pick up a relatively cheap console and play seven years worth of exclusives relatively cheap especially compared to next gen launch prices which I would expect two games for the prices they are currently asking for.

If you're planning to play Last of Us on PS4 via the Cloud you may have a bit of a wait on your hands, at least according to this

Long live Vita It's a great little console but you have to have one to appreciate how great it is.

because it's cheap and it's still 3 months away for a ps4, and god knows how long till the streaming service is available. now is a perfect time to buy to get one so you can play all the ps3/console exclusives. i don't own any console and will enjoy playing these games I have missed out on, for a very reasonable price.

Safe to say that this will come with a controller and everything I need to plug in and play?

Don't have a console but fancy myself one now with GTA coming out.

2 reasons

Not everyone wants or possibly can afford the extra £150 for a PS4
GTA V is not set for a release for PS4 (this might change but is doubtful at the moment)

Hot from me ...sorry

Good deal definitely BUT - these will only get cheaper as the ps4/xbox one launch gets closer and takes hold.

voted hot though as the ps3 is an excellent media centre.

I dont understand why you want to wait a few months when you could have a PC which will play at PS4 levels now? Why wait until the PS4 comes out when all these games will be able to play by digital download on release day.

Your question is as valid as my answer, which quite frankly is worthless. If you cannot see why people like to buy a variety of products then there is no arguing with you.

Same for me, bought the last Zavvi deal with Last of Us/3 months PS+. 360 is boxed up until GTA comes out and had 15 games to play that never even come out on 360 plus 3 months of PS+. Just started playing old school Jak and Daxter.

Heat.

I will also add another reason to that, I HAVE A MASSIVE BACKLOG OF GAMES TO GET THROUGH, and my 40gb phat is on the edge of collapse.

Its not an Xbox tho. Terrible deal.

I made the mistake of buying the super slim. The build quality is shocking. Very plasticy, light and horrible top loading from 2001. Many problems with it too as you will find out in the PlayStation forums. The slim was a lot better than this crap.

1) PS4 cannot natively play PS3 games.

2) Gaikai-powered cloud streaming of back catalogue not going to happen for quite some time due to ISP unreliability.


On those two points, this is indeed a deal because PS3 has a lot of games out already, and has a lot more to come.

Nice, where exactly did you find the code? I was less fortunate in my search.

I have an 80gb phat PS3. Not sure whether to wait until it breaks before I buy a newer one or trade it in. Anyone in or was in a similar position?

My phat died on me with minimal warning (YLOD). For a few days before it died the fan would go into overdrive but I didn't pay much attention. Heat I think is the biggest killer so if it's well ventilated, minimal dust in vents and the fan stays calm you might be okay. But then these things can just give up the ghost at any time I guess..

Damned if do, damned if don't.

ps Since replacing it with a slim two years ago I have never had any fan issues. The newer models may be better designed when it comes to handling heat..?

Sooo tempted for a December birthday present but what's the chances there will be a better deal between now and then I wonder?

I can think of a dozen reasons to not want a ps4/xbox one, I know there is a lot of controversy on the advancements of the cameras and the microphones, it is very advanced being able to record you and focus the microphone on a certain point in the room, and the fact that console on or off the camera and microphone remain on. I don't really know the in and outs but it's not a feature we would want or use so the PS3 is perfectly fine for playing the games.

No matter how good of a deal they offer, I will never shop with Zavvi again. Horrible company to deal with. Avoid them.

I originally had a phat 80GB PS3, then got one of the 320GB slim models a couple of years ago, purely for the HD space. The 80GB model was fairly quiet, the 320GB slim model has a very noisy fan that can be distracting if you are trying to watch a film or TV on the PS3, I wonder if the "super slim" model will be even noisier?

Anyone contemplating but not wanting the game(s) or wanting to subsidise the price further I can pretty much guarantee that there's a buyer out there for them Nudge Nudge Wink Wink.

Via the FS section of course

Great deal for TLOU and GTA V. These are two games worth getting a PS3 for, regardless of next gen being a few months away.

Really? I too bought a 320gb slim and find it much quieter than the phat was. I wonder if you've got a dodgy fan... How enclosed is it?
