New to the forum so forgive me if I have done anything wrong.

Just bought a PS3 40gb from Amazon with Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Burnout Paradise, HDMI Cable for £349.96 delivered.

Have been looking for ages and I think this deal with 3 top games is hot.

You should put the price and retailer in your title.

Edit:Welcome to HUKD:)

Good price but not worth it IMO, Sony need to gain some kind of foothold in the market and that will only come, with deals like this being under £300 and good original exclusive content. By the time the swallow their pride and stomach the costs, it maybe to late, as people will have looked elsewhere for their gaming needs

three posts and the debate begins to rage as usual:roll:

It's worth it for people that want a PS3, I don't at the moment but it's still a good deal and probably best bluray player you can get.

good deal and good games voted hot.

Ratchet and Uncharted are great games. Burnout in addition is a great mix. Quality bundle that represents the PS3 well.

Cost isnt everything. I play my PS3 hell of alot more than the Wii. Not to mention best Blu ray player/ HD dowloadable media etc. Its a very high quality product. You could maybe say too high quality but i say you can never have enough.

Hopefully get some competition now. I noticed play bumping up their PS3 price by a tenna twice. It's £290 at play now.

How long until the new controllers, I could hold out for that.

I've been playing Uncharted Drakes Fortune from about 10am this morning. Its up there with the best games I've ever played. I'll picking up Burnout next week.

Ratchet and Clank looks a bit too easy from the reviews but you could easy swap it for Resistance which is also another great exclusive.

I have UT3 which is fantastic online but utter pants in SP campaign unfortunately.

i wouldnt swap ratchet & clank for resistance personally, i have both, resistance i have played 2 times in total, i though it was rubbish having had and played gears of war, rainbow 6 vegas and call of duty 3 for the xbox 360.

r & c is the best platformer on the ps3, infact it is probably one of the only platformers, it makes a change from 1st person games, racing or football.

a decent deal although i would have thought zavvi in store would still be the best option for people with virgin credit cards.
i got my mate a ps3 ( 40 gig) 2 controllers, hdmi lead, fifa 2008, call of duty 4 2 x blu ray films ( pirates 1 and ghost rider) and the sony remote for £334 in total 3 weeks before xmas.

Good price, with excellent bundled games.

Great price. R&C and Uncharted are probably the best games on the system, and the early reviews for Burnout Paradise seem to be very positive.

Heat added, but I certainly can't afford another console at the mo - and I barely have time to do the 360 and Wii justice as it is

An 80gb PS3s coming out in a couple of months in the UK, i'm sure the price of the 40GB will lower by about 20 or 30 quid by then.

I recon this is the best deal around at the moment although pikachu has a point about the 80gb version

Voted Hot!

It doesn't really matter about hard-drive space though. You can upgrade the hard drive on a PS3 if you wanted, just buy a 200GB hard drive online and swap it out. Sooo much better then Microsofts locked in hard drives. I've not bothered yet as 40GB is enough but its very easy to do and even shows you in the manual.

Seems like a good deal and I am tempted but would rather wait and see what the 80gb model has to offer. Does anyone know if the 80gb model will include the same spec as the discontinued 60gb model including backwards compatibility?

why do people keep going on about a 80GB model......can someone provide a link to this rumour being true?

get a xbox 360 way better

oh here we go.

if there was an 80gb model going to be released then why would they put backwards compatibility on it. It would cost more and it is not worth it

not sure what the PAL 80gb has to offer but the 80gb in US has the exact same spec as PAL 60gb. eg sacd, ps2 software emulation, card reader etc :thumbsup:

As others are saying dont bother about the hard drive you can swap it out easily with a much bigger laptop drive. Its painless compared to other consoles. BC isnt coming back since the old PS3 use the older motherboard with the PS2 chip.

the euro version never had a ps2 chip in it, its all software done,

Any idea how long it will be until the new rumble controller is included in the PS3 bundle?

for £340 from costco u get 3 games ps3 40gb and 2 controller n a remote thts a gd deal

shanecr;1479769

NTSC 60GB & 20GB units have EE + GS chips = 100% PS2 backwards compatibility
NTSC 80GB & PAL 60GB units have GS chips only = partial PS2 backwards compatibility (software is used to emulate EE chip).
ALL 40GB units do not have neither EE nor GS chip = no PS2 backwards compatibility

exactly. the euro (60GB PAL) had no chip, just software for BC

This is an good deal. There's no point in comparing the PS3 with the 360, someone could say the 360 has all the better games, others could say that PS3 has many more great games coming out this year than the 360. The 3 games in this deal are excellent. I've played and completed R&C and although it's not extremely challenging it is extremely fun and along with Super Mario Galaxy is the best platformer this generation. Uncharted is awesome, I've played the demo and some of the game at my friends house and I'll be buying it this week. Burnout looks likes it's going to be great fun, with the open Paradise City and great online modes. For £350 this is a good deal, so I voted hot

Yeah you get alot of variety in this bundle much like the PS3. Ratchet and Uncharted are exactly the kinds of games that are not on xbox. It would be great if there were more platformers like Ratchet and Mario.

There is no fully working software BC or we would have BC on the 40GB. Its confusing for alot of people since there is alot of misconceptions spread about the PS3.

They likely will sell PS2 games for download but that would be emulation on a game by game basis more likely.

2008 will be the year of the PS3, blue ray has won the HD DVD war and so just as a blue ray player these machines are awsome, as games console their way better and more powerful than the x box360.

Have the school holidays started already? :whistling:

This is one of the best bundles I have seen in terms of quality games, I'm sure the price can be bettered but they're definitely some of the best games the PS3 has to offer.

I had a 360 in fact I have had five all have died and after a long drawn out batle with Microsoft I have recieved a refund, thought maybe a Wii but couldn't get one at a decent price plus I love HD graphics so what choice was left.... a PS3

GS chip is a PS2 chip actually

for anyone leaving the country soon, I saw this same offer minus hdmi cable for £303.97 at HMV duty free from Gatwick airport on Friday.

FYI HDMI cables are approx £13 if bought at HMV at same time. Although as we all know you can shop around for cheaper....
