Excellent if you just want the console and don't want to be saddled with Killzone.

Get this then make up your own package using other deals to get the games and accessories you want without getting robbed.

Also most payment methods are charged on dispatch.

So who's voting this cold then? Seems a good deal to me.

Wow! Great prize, can see this getting very hot. Currently debating whether to change my shopto preorder for this, anyone know what gamestop are like for pre-orders?

Idiots are voting this cold. It beats the bundles for me as the flexibility allows me to get exactly what I want for roughly the same money as being stuck with Killzone which has yet to ever be a decent alternative to the mighty halo.

no stock for release but still a good price

Great price , but Killzone will be a must buy any way.

Used them in the past and they are fine, early if anything in my experience.

Excellent price!

Even if you don't get it till February X)

I'd expect it before Xmas as many people will change to bundles elsewhere freeing some of these up.

The best deal at present if you have no preorder and require one for a Xmas pressie like me is Amazon... ok you pay RRP but they are guaranteeing delivery before Xmas

Is payment taken now?

Good deal for all those people that have just cancelled their SimplyGames order (_;)

I think that's an incorrect assessment of the situation. There will be little or no 'freeing up' of the 349.99 package.

You are already not guaranteed a release day PS4 unless you ordered before August 7. But now the news is that there are already not enough 349.99 packages to go around even amongst those people who preordered over 2 months ago.

Instead, Sony are going to sell 'bundle' packages, where the bundle offers essentially no saving over RRP of the individual items, and expect retailers to deal with the fallout of asking for more money, or asking their customers to wait for longer for the deal they signed up for.

So far from 349.99 packages being 'freed up', there will in fact be an artificial waiting list for the 349.99 package, which will most likely outlast any shortages of the various bundles, and could conceiveably last well into the New Year.

Short version: the only place I would trust to get me a 349.99 console before Christmas is Amazon, and that is only because of their relative clout and ordering power.

It's getting cheaper I can see p4s £299 at launch



Lol, so many things wrong with this comment.

Good price!8)

Great price, getting tempted.

I doubt it, but even if some combination of coupons cashback and codes did get you that low, it would still only be an order with no chance of being fulfilled for 'launch'.

It'll be under 300 within a year, certainly, maybe even within a few months.

But you have got nearly no chance of getting one even at RRP in time for launch any more. Maybe one of the ~500 quid bundles if enough people cancel them in disgust.

All that said, this is the best offer for price right now and MIGHT come in before Christmas, so voted hot.

I like the image. Clever.
Great price, I paid £325 for my PS3 but that was because original price was £425. Yet this time around, £325 seems too much, I'll buy one when it's £300 somewhere I think.

Good price, might cancel my Amazon mega bundle for this.

Awesome price but I would only really go for it if launch delivery was guaranteed.

Oops, sorry for double post. I think my assessment is reasonable. I'd expect it for Xmas. Apparently lots of people are upgrading to bundles so standard console should be available. Sony would be mad to also not meet demand, it's not like the launch has sneaked up on them.

Xmas is the key period, it will be available or I will eat masterchiefs helmet. Not in a rude way.

Day one release will be difficult I take it?

Over the moon with this, cancelling my simply games preorder now!

went balls deep and ordered one, the payment has been taken but if bigtam1 is right it should be put back in?? not sure if that will happen but we will see, hopefully get it before xmas, oh and i used top cashback to get 5% cashback as well. fingers crossed all 3 happen

wow, great price. still on the fence about buying a console at the moment. the only games that look decent on release are going to be out on PC.

having played both PS4 and Xbox One consoles, graphically they are one hell of a jump, much more than i expected. However, the Xbox was a lot bigger than I thought. Which was a shame esp as the Kinect 2.0 was a fair size too. Def worth the pick up.

Couldn't resist! Great price, thanks for posting.

Don't forget 5.05% TCB

I think you're missing the point. People are not necessarily upgrading to bundles by choice. They are being contacted by retailers and told that there are no more 349.99 sets available, even though they may have pre-order well before the August 7th 'cut off'. They are being told that if they want a release for launch day they will HAVE TO upgrade to a bundle.

This is because Sony have (somewhat cynically) limited the number of non-bundle PS4s that will be available.

In other words, there will be a longer wait for a non-bundle package than for a bundle package.

Ha! You could be right, but I'd start looking up recipes. 4 Halo games haven't tenderized that thing yet, it's going to take more than half an hour in the pot with the sprouts to get it ready for Christmas dinner.

I thought one of the plus points of getting a PS4 was the price compared to the XBOX One?

As far as I can make out, you get a Kinect and a game for £100 more with the XBOX One. I make that better value for money.

Payment doesn't load up?

Anyone else having this problem?

Not if you didn't want the kinect.. so its £100 more for an item you don't want and a game.. Not quite so good value..

Saying that i have an xbone preordered and nearly jumped at getting this aswell, until i saw how poor the ps4 exclusives actually are at launch. If the ps4 has gran turismo exclusive to it then i'd probably have preordered right now, but I'll stick to xbone with dead rising 3 and forza for a few months till the ps4 can churn out some good exclusives

If you want the Kinect and the game. Otherwise, it's much, much worse than the 349 bundle.

Having said that, it's starting to look like better value, since Sony are also pushing bundles, and their bundles aren't as good value.

It's a dangerous game of brinkmanship, frankly.

Wouldn't pay over £200 for this, so won't vote.

I would be very cautious with gamestop, had problems with them recently, pre orderd fifa 14, money taken straight away and still not received anything, won't ever use again.

I used gamestop a number of times for preorders and its just to make sure funds are available but you will get the money back in after max 5 days

I pre-ordered ages ago from Toys r Us (almost forgot about that) for £335 I think it was so will just stick with that as hopefully that will come on release date. Will cancel my Amazon bundle as it's fairly rubbish and works out cheaper buying separately and you only but what you really want.
