Just popped in to the local PC world for a PS3 160GB, in store it is £250, so I asked if they would price match to the £199.99 of Sainsburys, which they did, also knocking off 10% of the difference. Making the 160GB PS3 Slim £195.

PC world have an instrore deal, when buying a PS3 you get Medal of Honor for £9.99. (it's worth £18cash or £22 trade in price at CEX)
So I got both for £204.99

When I completed the transaction it printed off a Voucher to get £20 off COD Black OPS which is normally £39.99 instore. The guy at the till said you get the voucher for the purchase of any PS3 and Medal of Honor. The voucher expirey date was tomorrow (10/11/10) but i dont know if that is the actual expirey date, or if the voucher only lasts for 1 day after purchase of the console?

I took advantage of the offer, meaning the PS3 and both games were £224.98

Did you need to show any evidence of the Sainsburys deal? There is a sainsburys in my town but they aren't selling the console so don't know if PC World would price match a deal that doesn't actually exist in my town?

he looked online but the deals not showing, so he called the store, he said as long as the store is within 30miles they could do it

Hmm, well if he called my sainsburys they would tell him they don't sell the console. Have to check if one within 30 miles is doing it. Maybe I could take the picture someone posted here and take that as proof.

There are a few stores within 30 miles yes but obviously I have no idea if they are doing it unless I call them. Might just go to PC World with that picture and then let them do the calling if it isn't enough. Nothing to lose but a walk into town.

Great deal...gonna try tomorrow

Yeh £50 was the difference, so 10% of that is £5. so it was £195 instead of sainsburys £199.99

ah - a worthy pricematch thread combining with their own offers

Yes and yes. This is one of two new slim models, the other being a 320GB and all PS3's play Blu-Ray since the games are on that format.

Just a thought, its worth getting medal of honour at £9.99 as Cex will give £18 cash or £22 trade in value, if you go for the cash with cex, it will take an extra £8.01 off your total spend making the console with black ops £216.97, if there is a cex close and you dont like moh its worth buying it anyways. There also giving £33 for black ops too...

That is what I'm thinking of doing if I can get the deal, have no interest in FPS like MOH so flogging it was the plan.

Haha, why thank you.. I cant think of any better way to get a PS3, i was going to get the 320GB from play, with the move kit for £269.99 but this in my opinion tops that easily

cheers mate where did you trade it in for £30 mate? im not going to bother opening mine, just trade it straight in

It was last week monday at CEX, my local wudnt take it as they had too many copies so he offered me twenty quid for it after initially saying thirty but then he's manager was like dont give him thirty and i told them to eff off, dropping 33% like that! So gave it to the missus as she was going back to uni that day n she traded it in there at her uni town and they gladly accepted, it was awesome! Lol, Check with asda how much they offer. I rang up last week n the guy said 28 pounds but price changes every saturday so it may be less, it may be more, i dunno you;ll just have to check. Do you know if PC world price check with asda at all? or is it just bestbuy and sainsburys...

pcworld.co.uk/gbu…tml

from looking here i'd say if its a local store within 30miles they will match it.
i'll check ASDA, gamestation, discs n discs and CEX tomorrow

PCworld or the entire group never price matched anything for me.

A few times their manager(someone claim to be in charge of managing the store) just ask me to go for asda/sainsbury's if they are cheaper, he said he would rather not sell me, ha!

Anyone aware of any decent PS3, on it's own, deals? I don't want certain games or a certain Move, just the console, and the picture on the previous page of £200 is still crazy expensive!

£200 for the best games machine on the market with updateable Bluray 3D player? I don't think that's expensive IMO.

I agree, worth noting tho that it won't do 3D in 1080p only up to 1080i because the HDMI port doesn't provide enough bandwidth (is rev 1.3 not 1.4)

just got mine - he said he cant find any deal for the £9.99 medal of honour deal and said maybe it was a mistake and was given?

the COD voucher is for expiry the next day and theyre out of stock argh

nice..... can and can anyone confirm the MOH deal??

With regards Medal of honor deal..
They sell the ps3 for £250
And a ps3/medal of honor bundle for £260,
So he just pricematched the ps3 to £195,scanned MoH and it came up at £10

Waaaay too much effort

Banned

so has anyone (apart from the OP) managed to get this or is it another usual non-deal?

Heat added OP

A good wee entertainment package you got your hands on there

£200 for the Bluray 3D player.



I have removed opinion from your post.......

Also the new firmware update makes it Blu-Ray 3D



Also if you don't buy DVD/Blu Ray, Lovefilm has launched on the PS3 today so for £10 a month you can get unlimited streaming along with unlimited rentals at one disc a time there is also a 30 day trail
