PS 2 plus free eyetoys game £50 instore

235
Found 24th Feb 2007
Currys will be selling slimline Playstation 2s with eyetoys game for £50 from tomorrow (sunday 25/02) morning, when I discovered this not even most of the managers knew so theres a very good chance of getting a console, as you are allowed to reserve them also.

This is nationwide, so I assume it will also be on the website, they will also be selling ps2 games from 47p

Lol, its because your following the link from post 15, it is using someone elses session ID. Go to [url]www.currys.co.uk[/url] and search for PLAYSTATION 2 SLIM LINE instead. :thumbsup:

I give up! not a deal for me.
well i don't think the price is gonna update online anytime soon!
...1.10am, still no update...
where did this insider info come from anywayz?
pawsntails

I've not seen anything online but the exact thing I got told in store … I've not seen anything online but the exact thing I got told in store today was.'Our slimline PS2 are going to be £50 tomorrow and the ones we have available come with a free eyetoys game (they then went on to demonstrte what eyetoys is which was quite funny lol), it will be nationwide if the stores have stock in' and one member of staff believed that some of them came with singstar but couldn't he couldn't guarntee this as they didn't have any singstar packages in at their store (warrington)


Did u get one?
look like it ewas a early april fool prank!!!!!

it just shows how people are easily misled.

i feel sorry for those who specially stayed up till till the crack of down !!! ... the things ppl do just to save a couple of quid...

the ps2 is about 3yr old. outdated. is £50 really worth for it?
Got to be worth it for the money! £50 for a console which is still played loads and appears not to have lost any of it's appeal......oh and the vast array of games available. Granted the PS3 will exceed this and some could save the £50 towards that, but be a few years before price comes down to anything close. And thanx to PS3 all the prices of the PS2 hardware, accessories and games have dropped dramatically. Still one of the most sold games consoles in the world. No brainer really at this price.
the ps2 is 6years old plus which means it has a brilliant back catalogue of games espicially if you have never had one before.
I have a 360 and i have to wait months for a slightly different game right now so a ps2 with cheap good games will do me.

Saying that i have reserved a ps2 at my local currys so they cant put it behind the counter and so on and it better be #49.99 or ill be pissed off.

Edit:

Actually the PS3 in Europe will be useing software emulation rather then hardware because its cheaper that way and sony are a waste of time.
Software emulation will mean that only a limited number of PS2 games will be backwards compatable which considering how large the back catalogue is your talking very few games.
Basically the PS3 in Europe has the highest price tag in the world for the worst hardware.
So is this just an early April fool or not... Looks like this whole thread and the one over at MSE are based on the word of one person who heard something on the grapevipe...
We'll know in about an hour as first stores wont open till 10am and website not listing it as deal. Good thing is if you have transport and you dont want to rush out for 10am to find hoax ...just ring at 10 then if its a deal queue at one that opens at 10.30!

Originator has loads of respect so no reason to doubt deal at moment.:thumbsup:
Its on the website...but out of stock! (and £39.97)

currys.co.uk/pro…912
So lasted at least 10 minutes eh! Possibly as they dont want it reserved online so probably still in store. At least a genuine deal then....should put some minds at rest.
£39.97.... WOW !!!

Good find...

So will Curry honour the pre-orders at the new price?

That link has been out of stock for ages - it's the old shape console, not the slimline, so I don't think that one will re-stock,

Steve
That doesn't look like the slimline to me... maybe there is still hope...
That's the old larger PS2, wouldn't have thought any would be in stock now
Yeah the SKU codes are different...

The PS2 Slim is 708030.
I have reserved one online to pick up from my local store at £95. When you do reserve online to pick at the local store it does say that you will pay the price quoted at what you have reserved it at :x
Have also just reserved it - I am working on the assumption that the store will honour the £50 selling price - will phone first before I go out, the message below only states that they will honour web prices regardless of higher store prices not sure how it would work the other way round!!!

"The price you pay is the price shown on this website, even if it is cheaper than the usual in-store price"
I just called my local currys store (massive one) and they laughed at me on the phone saying that there is no such deal!!! :oops:

Bryan
ive just called the local store and asked the price, the guy confirmed the £49 price, but he recons he aint got any left???? strange that the system just let me reserve 1 :x

If you have reserved one it should be there! Did you tell them you reserved one?

Bryan
The PS2 packs you're reserving online are probably not those available in this offer, they are the bundled eye toy ones, possibly with different packaging.

Just had a look around the net, guess your right, I havn't seen these ps2 eyetoy bundles before though. lol

Bryan
I have, i got one when the eye toy first came out, it was on the shelves for about 6 months. The box had eye toy all over it.

there was also a singstar branded bundle which someone has said may also be available in this offer.
i just called local currys store and guess what that guy was asking that what maked me thinking that price will come down upto 49, basicly he was laughing at me aswel. :@

seems bogus to me
I can guarntee this is not a prank, my currys doesnt open till 11am, but when I get it I'll take a picture of my reciept to proove it. 'Though saying that 'I shouldn't have to proove it for those of you doubting as this deal was posted in hope of helping some people.
just phoned mine in enfield.........bloke thought i was loopy...

just phoned mine in enfield.........bloke thought i was loopy...



yeah, but did you ask him about the the PS2s?

Same thing happened to me, never mind, I think this is a genuine deal, but it looks like it is stores with the ps2 + eyetoy bundle, which isnt many by the looks of it!

Bryan
My local currys is 5 doors down from me so I just popped in and asked them what the situation was... Nobody had heard about it

Went home empty handed... but 50 quid better off
same here, called the store but didn' get through, and was told theonline prrice is exactly the same as the store price, which is 94.99???:(
What about the PS2 game clearance that was also mentioned? Has anyone checked this out?
This was mentioned at the store I go to but the guy said he didn't think they had any of the clearance games in stock unfortunatley. Shame as would have been good to get extra control and some memory plus a game or 2, to go with the ps2. Oh well I'll be happy with eyetoys, shame my branch didnt have the singstar bundle in stock though.
Hi - The deal is real. Unfortunately for me, my local Currys, Littlehampton branch, hasn't got any. Took the sales assistant nearly 15 minutes to find the deal on the system though... The regular PS2 still comes up at the old price. Only the Eye Toy and Singstar bundles are at the £50 price... sigh...
