I recommend inFamous and LittleBigPlanet.

Shame that PlayTv doesn't do Freeview HD.

I really rate play tv. Much better picture than average freeviewboxes , due to the upscaler, plus with a 250 GB hard drive you could record an awful lot.

A lot of places are retailing Play Tv at £70 on its own anyway.

not sure if this is that good, play tv was available for 29.99 - plus the games are old and budget anyhow... cold imho

same price, but with 2 better games ]here

But doesnt come with play TV

Wowzers, 2nd time this has appeared at the top now. Let's see if enough people vote it cold again......

This deal is ok if you want the play tv thing but this one is much better imo:

bit of a random question but do you need to run the ps3 through a tv to use the playtv? I would run it through a computer screen rather than tv so would playtv not work?

exactly! I compared the picture quality of my sky box (thats the very basic sky box without recording) to playtv - sky is just rubbish. The upscaler is not perfect, but it does work most of times. I could remember in a few episodes of the x factor it is almost like HD quality when the picture is bright and rich, like in Simon's garden. But on stage the audience area is very dark, you will see a lot of big pixels around there.
I dont have a SKY/Virgin/BT contract now , therefore I cannot live without playtv.

The picture through my Play TV is rubbish....really, really rubbish.
It's well handy though, record programme at night, stick in USB stick, copy over, watch on my laptop on the way to work.
My biggest bug-bear with it is the time to load up. From starting your PS3 to watching TV through Play TV must take the best part of 2 minutes....as opposed to about 5 seconds with a PVR.

Oh yeah, the deal....doesn't seem that good really.

Play TV is £29.99 in sainsburys
the two games are worth about £15 each
so thats the console for £299 minus the extras, so £240
Not sure it's that great a deal as I'm pretty sure you could find the console just as cheap if not cheaper elsewhere.

having said that, there is some benefit to just doing one order and getting it all delivered at once.

Will this receive HD Freeview channels?

Two minutes? Blimey is there something wrong with your PS3, mine doesn't take anywhere near that long from start-up to watching PlayTV

Unfortunately no as the UK (typically) is using a different type of HD format than the rest of Europe and while PlayTV is compatible with Freview HD in Europe it's not with the UK version.

Perception v reality is often out of kilter eh. Just timed it, 54 seconds. Seems ages.

Should have reserved earlier. Out of stock of items around by me. Byebye impulse buy. Feck!

I've had a PS3 nestled under my TV for a couple of weeks now thanks to this deal. Stock finally came in. PlayTV is a LOT better than I imagined. It's like SkyTV without the crippling subscription and packages I won't watch.

With PS3 Media Server as well it handles every form of video file that I care to throw at it. Hi-Def MKV FTW.

Great Deal and Reserved last one in my local store!

I think I'm lucky to find one after I found out that 250GB was out of stock at HMV, GAME, GameStation. BlockBusters, Dixons etc.
