Credit to mike_fernlea in the voucher thread... I'll add some info to your post eek, such as to the title, and an image.

EDIT - cannot get direct link working... ][COLOR=Red]Here is a new one.[/COLOR] !! Ta greg

Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep

great find !! might have one !

Great price!

Although IMHO paying 400 quid is a shocking amount of money for a games console, I've voted this hot and I know if you wanted one of these you won't find it at a better price!

Nice find!

I'd assume you can also add games in with the discount, and the games are fairly decently priced (£39.99 each), so a PS3 with say 2 games would be about £430 ish (can't be bothered working out the maths properly.

They only have Motorstorm, Genji, F1, Ridge Racer and Resistance though, so finding a game other than Resistance might not be that easy. Still, could blow some money on a game and controller for about the same price.

BTW, games are listed under gaming accessories. Just search for the ones that are £30-£70.

Decent, but not staggering deal I guess. Just the same as you'd get if you went into HMV and conned them into giving you student discount I think.

Hmmm its lower than rrp but the ps3 was like £305 a while bk so ---warm

Yeah but to be fair, altough people got their orders, it was a misprice I think.

If anyone knows BringMe (closed membership) - the starting price for the PS3 is £391.

£391-10% Voucher = £352
£352- 4% QuidCo = £338 + Delivery.

Nearly £100 cheaper than it's launch price. Positively a steal !

The 360 at Boots for £149 is a steal m8 - the PS3 is a rip off

I'm assuming that's a typo ?

Anyway - Xbox 360 and PS3 pricing are not far of the mark of each other you know. Add on a HD DVD drive (about £110) to the XBox 360 (about £250) and your at £360 .... no too different on price I think you'll agree.

nope, core version tho, so that good a deal

Can't beat the mymemory deal! £303 + a free game + quidco back now that was a steal.

Anyway I am going to wait til it gets alot cheaper in the meantime I got feebay selling my crappy PS3's

£300 it will go to for PS3 on its own at XMAS - well thats what the experts say..... Only time will tell.

BTW why don't we all wait til Blu Ray Recordables go to the price what DVD-Rs are now............

Another thing to mention the PS3 doesn't read the recordable discs properly....

The PS3 has BluRay - it's the cheapest BluRay player you'll find and it beats those on the market for £1000+

If it's not your thing fine!! But quit with the stupid childish PS3 jibes - it's not big and it's not clever

and no, I'm by no means a fanboy - but weighed up for what you get, it's by no means a 'rip-off' if you shop around

lewiep

nope, core version tho, so that good a deal



Lol nothing is wrong with the core console jeez -- i have one -- can i play 360 games yes can i save -- yes can i go on live - yes

I bought my core for £170 when the premium was £280 -- i bought hard drive for £30 on ebay brand nee and got a free headset when i bought my 12months for £22

The only problem with the core now is that the premium has dropped to like £220 and for £50 its easier to get that

Some of us work and the ps3 at £360 isnt that bad - yes its like half my months wages but still.......

By 'rip off' he could have meant that Sony are forcing you into Blu-ray, the 360 already plays movies and you dont have to go to HDDVD.
The PS3 will be £299 soon ;-) so I cant vote hot.

Watching movies on a 360? Can you hear the film over the noise of the console?

All teasing aside though, can't everyone just let everyone else make up their own minds about what they want to do with their own money? This forum is for discussing deals, not the relative merits of different consoles. As far as I'm concerned, regardless of whether a PS3 is worth £365, if that's the cheapest you can currently buy one with that spec then it's a hot deal.

Voted hot. But no, I'm not buying one.

Wrong! you don't see me go and post "360 is cheap but it tends to develop fault, etc" in the 360 bargain thread.

Why buy a PS3 over X360

-Much better hardware than X360
-Better support for non-proprietary devices
-Better value for money (although subjective based on use)
-Much quieter!
-Online aspect is set to dominate with upcoming "Home" online application
-Better quality SDTV and much better quality Audio and support for greater outputs
-Blu-Ray is outselling HD-DVD 2:1
-Much more compact system than X360 having no external power supply
-Need I go on?

[/a converted fanboy]

To get the 10% (voucher MAY10) off the list price - is there somewhere on the place order screen it gets keyed in? I've been through the screens but have either missed it or can't see it for looking at it and don'w want to end up paying 405.80 forthe console. It's for my nephew who is desperate for one .Thanks

Yes Sony force you to buy a Bluray player, but with an Xbox they force you to buy Microsoft addons - you cant buy any make of hard disk to upgrade (any SATA 2.5" will fit in a PS3) plus headset (you can use any bluetooth headset with PS3). Not to mention the play and charge, wireless adaptor (all standard on PS3) plus loads of other "hidden" extras.

The biggest draw for PS3 though for me has to be the NOISE! PS3 is pretty quiet, whereas the Xbox sounds like Henry The Hoover on steroids. For £425 its a steep price, but for £362, its a bargain over the Xbox.

That said, Xbox has the games at the moment, at it will be some time for PS3 to catch up - but of course that will happen in the next few months. I do like the xbox, but I always find it hard to rationalise peoples heavy handed treatment of the PS3, very much jumping on the Sony bashing bandwagon. Its in every gamers interest that all three of the main players succeed in the console race - that means more games, and better games for everyone

You're missing the one thing that Sonys game console lacks. Games!

No I did mention that at the end of my post. To be fair the Xbox also didnt have many games in its first few months.

I think both consoles are quite similar in terms of money, especially when you take into account all the discount prices for PS3 now, and add all the stuff you need to buy for the xbox to make it the same spec. Plus the lack of choice when it comes to the headset/wireless/hard drive, all having to be Microsofts own brand. But I really want to emphasise that its not good for one console to be dominant (as was the case with the PS2), its much better as it is now with three main contenders all competing for the hearts and minds of gamers, this will drive competition and creativity, and its great for consumers. To bash Sony or Microsoft and say either one is a rip off, in defence of the other, is really counterproductive.

There are pros and cons to both, and to simply slate the PS3 as a "rip off" isnt a valid argument.

But we've been over this all a 1000 times so it shouldnt turn into another PS3 vs Xbox debate. Great deal, well done OP :thumbsup:

Sorry I just don't like fanboys slating consoles that they probably haven't even owned (Not aiming that at you btw). I've never said the PS3 was a rip off, I know it's priced as it is because of the components used. They lose money on every console sold, so you can't really knock them.

I agree it's good to have competition. It's just a lot of people are pretty much "I own a PS3, therefore PS3 is best".

I'll buy a PS3 sometime next year, not for a price drop though. Just to give it time to come into it's own. Developers using it more to it's full potential etc. Hopefully it will have a few more exclusives too.

Yep 100% agreed. And whilst I am PS3 biased, primarily because I feel it offers more versatility hardware wise (but accept it doesnt software wise!) - I also love the Xbox as well, and if I had the cash I would own both. Your comment about the games is probably the main reason for that, Dead Rising being one my favourite titles of 2006.

I don't understand fanboyism, because it makes no sense to fully support one console as if it were a football team. Both consoles have good points and bad.

Whichever people buy, this is a great deal and in response to ]omaragha's comment, it isn't a "rip off" thats why people are voting it hot

have owned pretty much all systems except xbox(which was to late)and 360(which i felt was too early)but ps3 under the telly takes the **** of 360 with a brick psu,loud fans and bog standard in out dvd tray.just a shame sony (as usual)ripped uk customers off with a lesser produvt.

I have owned Wii, X360 and PS3. I loved Wii's simplicity, ambience and non-intrusive (rather welcoming) setup. X360 has some decent games and ok online (people overrate this aspect because imho it suffers from serious lag in many titles compared to PC), but PS3 is the direct competitor and having used it, seems so much more refined. But as others mention, it comes down to personal preference and I know what I like

you will want to send it back when you hear how noisy it is playing blu ray :x

Ive got a PS3, XBOX 360, and WII

The PS3 & the WII are currently gathering dust, while the XBOX 360 is used daily, mainly because it has the best games, and awsome live service that the PS3 doesnt have (at the moment)

The PS3 will be a quality machine, just not yet!!!! and just wished id have waited a bit longer before parting with my cash!

The BLURAY playback is nothing really to write home about! as far as bluray players go its unsuprisingly the worst on the market, and it doesnt even upscale your standard dvds to 720P or 1080 I / P which is rubbish considering you can by an upscaling DVD player for about £30!

The only thing that makes me switch on the PS3 at the moment is my fantastic BBC PLANET EARTH - Bluray DVD.

HALO 3 multiplayer beta goes live today so will be a while yet before the PS3 gets a play, the poor old novelty WII might have to be sold

Having said all this though, this isnt a bad deal!

Rated Hot!

ignore...

Ah if i could get a ps3 for £300 id buy it


Im not getting spidey 3 or v tennis 3 as i want them on the ps3

Yeh so what v tennis dont have online but so what im gunna have to pay another £30 a year to play it online -whereas ps3 online is free

Talk about the deal more ;). I think we've heard a lot of this already - we don't need a 76th repeat on what's going on around here XD.

That's a great deal on the ps3 for anyone who's looking for one now btw. However, I personally would wait. 'Nuff said.

Is anyone else having a problem finding the voucher code box to enter the 10% discount code? I have tried going through the link provided at Quidco, and when at Step 2, where the box should be, it only asks for card details etc. Have tried going direct through the amended OP link but still no joy. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I know this is not the same deal but over at [url]www.cex.co.uk[/url] they are selling the console for £365 delivered if you purchase online. The console is second hand BUT you get 12 months warranty from them.

I know some people will say they are a cr*p company other may say the opposite, but to date my experience with them has been good, although I've never had a faulty item to take back.

Just an option for those who want one less than retail but with warranty.

You go from one extreme to another. I've seen you posting comments any Xbox fanboy would be proud of. You're the perfect example of "I own this console, this console is best".

PS3s online is free. But it also uses dedicated servers, so when developers get tired of paying out for servers for you to play on. Expect the online to become dead for that game.

But hey.

PS3 = Free ...... 360 = £30 a year

Boo Microsoft. :roll:

Think this has [SIZE="5"][COLOR="Red"]expired[/COLOR][/SIZE], I can no longer find a PS3 on their website.
