PS3 40GB Catalogue Returns

Found 18th Jul 2008Made hot 18th Jul 2008
As appeared a few months ago...now available again...

Product is a catalogue return and therefore may show signs of previous usage. In addition this product may have sustained damage to the outer box in transit. All catalogue returns are tested to ensure full working order prior to despatch. This product includes 30 day money back guarantee from ChoicesUK. The Playstation 3 from Sony is the most powerful next generation games console and entertainment system, packed with features to die for. The new 40Gb version has all the great features you would expect from Sony, all at fantastic value.

I know the 80GB is coming end of August, but for those that can't wait, this is probably the cheapest PS3 available now. Hard discs can be easily upgraded if necessary and total cost would still be less than 80GB RRP. My first deal, go easy.

That's odd - I'm still getting 'No longer available to order' ??? :?

I have just ordered - thanks OP, was my birthday on Tuesday and I was given an IOU for a Wii, just upgraded that to a PS3 at this price.

Heres hoping that it won't be too long.

Incidentally, supposedly the ps3 will be dropping in price next month as an 80gb one is coming out at £299.

Availability: Stock On Order So not available now :whistling:, IF they honour the deal you may get one

Dont bother giving your bank details you will never get as 5 times now ive ordered and then had email 2 weeks later saying cancelled.

i take it you only get a 30 day money back guarantee and no 12 month warranty?

They probably only had a few return PS3s, and by the time this deal became popular all the stock had probably gone.
New 80GB PS3 is coming out end of August for £299. Also PlayTV tuner to receieve and record TV on your PS3 is also coming out in September I believe. Anyone know if it would be able to tune/record Sky channels (i.e. sky box -> PS3 -> TV?)?

Still in stock.

They are actually knocking the 40GB model on the head when the 80GB comes out, from what I have read. They will then only be producing the 80GB model.

You only get a 30 day guarantee with ChoicesUK but I got one from here a few weeks ago and registered it via the PS3 website so you will get a full year's warranty from Sony in the event the machine dies.

For what it's worth (now that they appeared to have sold out again), mine came in a box that looked completely brand new except for the fact that the plastic seal had been broken. The console itself was still on whatever version of the firmware was the latest when the 40gb models started shipping and did not have any physical signs of having been used at all.

The 40GB PS3 will not be dropping in price according to the Sony boss at E3. The new 80GB model will be available end august at £299, so depends if you want to wait for the extra hard disc space, or just buy this and upgrade the hard disc yourself if you plan on downloading loads of content.

Going by what happened with this offer last time this can still be ordered - "Stock on order" so this deal is not expired. When out of stock it says "no longer available to order".

As for the guarantee, people who ordered this before said they were able to register the Sony warranty at home online. Everyone appeared happy with the console, the thread is still around somewhere...

I got one of these from choices a few months ago for £199 with GT5 P and the console I got was brand new looking with no marks etc and all the cables were still in sealed bags with the cable ties on, was able to register it with sony online. Why has this been expired when you can still buy for the price advertised.

STILL AVAILABLE!:thumbsup:

is there any problem with their website?
I cant login to check my account.

To be honest you could buy this PS3 now and upgrade the HDD yourself both for less than the 80Gb model will cost you in August and also to a much larger capacity then 80Gb.

As far as we know, the 80Gb units shipping in August are going to be the same as the current 40Gb units but with a bigger HDD, i.e. no DualShock 3 controller in the box and no backwards compatibility either. I think offering an 80Gb model in Europe is simply to bring us into line with what is already available in North America and Asia, probably to cut manufacturing costs.

Release Date: 10/10/2007

Just to let people know when it says Stock on Order it actually means there is stock. I ordered one before and it was virtually brand new and as it hadnt been registered yet online it was valid for 12 months warranty.

nice price, but i wont be upgrading to the 80gb one, or putting a new HDD into my 40GB one now - just wouldnt be worth it for me as i doubt ill ever use 40GB.

this playtv does interest me though - problem is in my room the TV i was given cant recieve normal channels without being fuzzy as it doesnt have much of an ariel - will that affect this, or will the playtv tuner give me perfect channels?

Anyone order this?
Receive any confirmation email?

Why would you buy a returned item

Why would you buy a 2nd hand item then dandoc? You do it all the time?
Im very sure that these will be in a better state than a used PS3 from a private sale

well i have bought 1 it says stock on order is there much chance that i will recieve this as i have never delt with these people before? i am hoping so as 199 is not a bad price any help much appreciated.

Why not? Its £100 cheaper than RRP and by the sounds of it a lot of people who have bought say the item is in brand new condition. Worth it in my opinion- voted hot

PlayTV is basically a freeview receiver, so if you can't get normal tv in your room the PlayTV thing won't work. (I think)

I bought one of these consoles two months ago, it gets used daily for gaming and as a media-hub and works perfectly. You can register it with Sony for a full twelve month warranty too, so no worries if it does develop a problem.

Oh, and it was £100 less than the RRP too.

You get a 30 day guarantee from Choices so in the worst case scenario you will get your money back if there is a problem with the console.

Seems a lot safer and less likely to end in tears than buying something second-hand off the HUKD forums or eBay to be honest.

i just tried and it added to the basket no problem?

where did it say no longer available?
