voted hot and think this will get very hot soon.

Great price, but potential buyers be warned - the prices of these concoles WILL drop in April.

How do you know it will drop in April?

I dont think the ps3 40g will ever drop below £200 any time soon.

There was a rumour but Sony denied it, like you would expect them to.

However. I know I wouldnt be waiting until april to play Killzone 2 even if that was true. :-D

i had the impression that ps3 lost money on every console sold and had to make it back on games, thats why i thought it kept its price high compared to the 360, im not saying you are wrong as i would never argue with someone who puts "WILL" in capitals to make sure we got what they were saying :whistling: H&R added

had i not bought an ipod during the week i would be getting one of these for this £££££

Good find.

hmmmmm very very tempting

had i not bought a blu ray player recently i would buy this but atm its a poss at this price

Weasel words.

It might drop in April (very unlikely though - with the rising cost of PS3 production, I don't think Sony can really afford it), but if it does it won't be significant, nowhere near the £199 mark this is selling for.

Great find, I already own the 80gb but it's worth 199.99 just for the blu-ray player as the player itself is at the top end.

And yes there will be a price drop in April, not weasel words but Sony's.

Cant resist this one, s**t, what is the wife going to say ?

"you should have bought a 360...."

good price, as sony plan to bump up prices due to the high value of JAP currency against the £>.

Excellent price for a great bit of kit. There may be a price drop later in the year as the processors are moving to a cheaper 45nm production process I believe. However I doubt this cut will bring a PS3 below £200. Therefore I would grab this deal if I didn't already have one!

good spot op

arrrggh... lol! credit card where are you!?!?

Order one for myself, but the confirmation email says "Your items will be despatched to you as soon as stock is available. "

Not sure if it is in actually stock!

Same here...

I know this sounds weird and I’m wondering what other HUKD members think but does anybody else think that choices have been acting a little weird lately? It’s just a feeling I’m getting, particularly on 80% game clearance sale and I’ve been finding the website a pain navigating about.

Oh and am I thinking you can no longer check your orders on their website?

I’m probably thinking too much about these things.

From the looks of this deal it already has!

excellent price plus u can buy decent sata 2,5' hard drive (320gb) for about £50

norgall;4430542

nothing, she should only speak when spoken to :-D

so can you play ps2 games on this ????

thinking of buzz quiz's really

There are some decent exclusives for the PS3 - MGS4, Killzone 2, Motorstorm 2... at this price, it might finally be worth buying! Let's test the water with Wife...

No.

No you can't, that was the original 60Gb PS3 only

I am really tempted, but don't know if this is a good deal or whether another will pop up on HUKD tomorrow!

Can anyone give me a couple of comparison PS3 deals so that I can see how much of a deal I could be getting?

This is the deal of the year so far!

Oh and is there a big advantage to getting the 80gb over the 40gb? or is it just for music lovers etc

The cheapest stand-alone PS3 out there is probably around £280 for the 80GB one.

You can get a 400GB internal HDD for the PS3 on Amazon for £60, stick that in and you've got a great system! £20 less than the 80GB with 5x the storage!

Controller with vibration and bigger HDD which as people have pointed out, is cheaper to upgrade yourself anyway.

Buy at this price, don't wait till tomorrow

£240 after cashback from SonyStyle is about the next best price (though currently unavailable)

i am thinking of selling my 60gb and buying this. ill have some extra money to buy games that way but ill be missing out on the memory card slots, the extra usb slots, playing ps2 games oh and the chrome disc tray

Nice one. Cheers
