PS3 Console 80GB Black - £289 delivered + 7% quidco..
That should work out to roughly £18 off £289 - so delivered makes this around the £271 mark..

Thats not bad at all. AVforum members have already had their quidco tracked...

Thanks

any tesco vouchers?

shame they are not selling the 60GB xbox360, but considering the state of game depts in tesco, not surprising

hot deal ps3 btw!

seems like a very good deal to me esecially with the quidco and free delivery.

Don't forget the clubcard points!!

good deal by the looks of it!

Do you think stores like Gamestation will reduce the price of 40gigs when the new 80 gig is released?

cool, i am envious with a meagre 60gig drive!

What's the difference with this one compared to the 40gb version? apart from an extra 40gb.

Isn't the 80gb one backward compatible with PS2 games too (well 80% of them)

No it has none of the older backward compatible options that the older model had i.e from a site -

The PlayStation 3 80GB model does NOT feature:

* Backwards Compatibility with PS2 Games
* Memory Stick Card Readers
* SACD Playback
* Ethernet Cable
* 4 USB Ports, (The PS3 80GB model features 2)

Taken from the game website:

PlayStation 3 is the industry's most advanced next-generation home console hardware, realised through the combination of Cell and RSX processors.

With the Giga-bit Ethernet and a pre-installed 80GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD) as standard in PS3, PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to download a variety of contents as well as access on-line games and services over the Playstation Network.

Equipped with basic input/output ports, PlayStation 3 supports a broad range of displays from conventional NTSC/PAL standard TVs to the latest full HD (1080i/1080p) flat panel displays, offering PS3 owners the joy of the most advanced computer home entertainment content. For use in living rooms, maximum heat and noise reduction has been achieved with a noise level equivalent to that of the current slim-line PlayStation 2.

With the overwhelming computational power of the Cell processor, PlayStation 3 is capable of playing back content from Blu-ray (BD) disc at a bit rate of multiplex 48Mbps with ease, the maximum bit rate defined in BD standards.

Comes with the new DualShock 3 Controller! The PlayStation 3 80GB model does NOT feature:

Backwards Compatibility with PS2 Games
Memory Stick Card Readers
SACD Playback
Ethernet Cable
4 USB Ports, (The PS3 80GB model features 2)

Just noticed the 'Not'

£269.99 those that have a student card with HMV

Does anyone know if these new 80GB models will have the 65nm RSX chip?

I thought it dosnt work with hardware? :thinking:

they wont reduce the price of the 40gb because stock has been deliberately run low for all retailers you will be lucky to find A 40GB by release day - they have timed it quite well

That's a lot of money to pay for a console with ****** online play.
Blue ray is nice but it's just a fad and wont last long.
I'd rather invest in a 360 at the price they are going at the mo.

Or an old skool Atari console even!!! :w00t:

Yeah, but the pre-owned 40 gigs are bound to drop in price because of this... right?

pre owned yes i would imagine

just wait for the 40gb ones to drop in price and pick up a cheap 320gb drive and change it yourself like i did.

You'll then have a 320gb ps3 for around the same price or even cheaper

i would get it at zavvi using my virgin credit card, so takes price down to £270:thumbsup:

Would the cpu fan inside the 80gb be the same as previous models? I have a 40gb, and while it is quiter than the 4 60gb's I've had, it is still not quiet enough to replace a DVD player outright.

I thought of that but not available on site yet, and by the time you add the tesco points, quidco and use a cash back credit card not much in it

yeah there isnt much init tbh. but paying £270 there and then at store is lot easier for me, ordering online using virgin card is a bitch atm as you have to send your invoice reference, then they will refund you:roll:

You know you can upgrade this hdd to a 320GB SATA HDD for £60 which you should not need to upgrade again.

hotukdeals.com/ite…ha/

I brought my 40gb PS3 last december from Play for something like £252, then brought the HDD as mentioned by zabbyh for £60 as 40gb is simply not enough even if you don't load movies/music on the unit.

So quite pleased that the Sony hardware is still keeping its price.

Hot deal by the way and the dual shock 3 is pretty good.

Blu Ray is now the established new standard, and should therefore be around for several years to come.

I love the PS3 but they do have 1 major design flaw...Rear USB ports? anyone heard of an easy mod for this or a model that has this? I have the camera and ordered the PlayTV PVR thing so having rear USB is a must for hiding those wires

i cant believe people are still paying £290 for a ps3 when there arnt any decent games

The ps3 is a blu ray player with the option of palying sub par games

not being a fanboy - just honest

ps3 @ £200 and i will buy it but no more than that but i suppose at least now the controllers come with rumble

Mmm
i can get it for £242 with my 10% staff discount + 7% quidco !!
Haha:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Your full of it.

PS3 has plenty of good games.

Soooo glad i didn't wait for prices to drop to get my PS3, would have ended up with the 40gb cr*p or even this!

Good price but that list of non-features is the decider. Not voting cold though because it is a good price

I ordered it yesterday afternoon, and Quidco has still not tracked it :x
