Is that plus vat? As that will bring it up to over £200

Is this pre VAT ? If so its £200 with the vat added.
Good deal if VAT already added but knowing Makro I'm guessing its not?

vat already added

i work in makro and our store has got a grand total of three. and the staff got em all hidden away. chance of gettin one? none at all.

what store do work in? Anyway there are others

its a great price no doubt and deserving of heat.im pretty sure you can go on the site and it will tell you how many each store has, but its status 5 so stock will be thin on the ground i reckons.

They have to have one available at time of opening on the date advertised, so as long as your first one through the door, shouldn't be a problem, hot from me

Voted hot purely on the basis that (unlike so many on here) the OP understands VAT

COLD. Each store will get a few and none will make it to the shop floor.

You work for Makro then? They always used to have loads when there was offers like this on the one by me....since closed

HOT BTW

Great find...you beat me to it

Not a great deal, apparently you can get this + PS3 move, and fifa 11 for £210.. and it's available. Something to do with playstation rewards corporate links. That's all i know

so if you dont like football and you dont dance £169 still a good price

I never said it wasn't. I said this wasn't a great deal. which is acknowledging that it is good, but not great.

At checkout the entertainment bundle shows "Out of Stock"

Cannot seem to find this on makro mail have you a link

Oh the memories of working in Makro and having to explain the VAT thing EVERY TIME to EVERY CUSTOMER.

I havent been to makro for years, bro was a member years ago. Do membership cards expire? and does it cost anything to sign up again?

Does anyone know if any stores price match against Makro?

Hoping this may trigger a similar price war as the tesco/amazon deal a while back

As I'm lucky enough to own all the 3 main machines (xbox elite-connect, ps3, wii, oh and psp, 3dsi etc) the PS3 is a good machine but the X-box 'system' is the better gaming platform in my opinion.

I only play F1 on the Ps3 and most of my gaming mates moved from the PS3 back to the X-box.

That said the PS3 is an excellent media player which is what I use it for 90% of the time.
Well worth its price and you get all the blu-ray updates too.

Sony will even remove your copy of Linux and add cinavia free of charge :-)

Its not, Its a clearance to clear our stock, They are status 5 which means will wont ever stock the item again, Why would a company order in more stock for a clearance sale, they will transfer between store if stock needs to be moved, other than that when its gone its gone,

Every store doesn't need at least one unit, you don't know what your on about

Most stores still have 1 or 2 older consoles kicking about believe they are 80gb unit for £113 Inc Vat if anyone doesnt mind a older unit for a lower price.

wii is the best media machine once modded in my personal opinion. i dont really watch 720/1080p. but if i wanted to i use my laptop/pc.
check out wiimc. plays every media format (rmvb,rm,avi,wmv,mkv....) through hard drive or stream through your pc perfectly not 720/1080 as the specs is not powerful enough.
ps3 requires it to be streamed to play everthing. but it can play 720/1080/bluray perfect.

Hmmmmmmm indeed!
You see the rumour mill this week churning up about the "Wii2"? HD capabilities would certainly be a good thing in future.

Oh dear....X)

Asked about this whilst I was in Glasgow Makro today and was told they don't have any on the system and aren't scheduled to receive any. Looks like this is just gonna be at a few select stores.

Chances of getting one - slim to none!

Would those older 80gb units still come with 1 year warranty?

right, first time I've ever posted on here, but you can also see that Makro mail out here:

http://www.makro.co.uk/metro_mail/mcc-uk/catalog/1185178/MM09_SALE_MAIL.pdf

PS3 is on the bottom page...tempted to treat meself!

but I have to be a member of this Makro place?

Got to the Reading branch at 10am today and all 6 units had sold. Argh! serves me right for having a lie in.

Do you have to be a company to buy from these stores? Or can you just walk in off the street?
