oh my god...that is beautiful and cracking price!

Don't think it's worth ordering at RRP, I'm sure some places eg ShopTo will sell for less than the RRP within a few weeks if not immediately.

barstards, announce it today, in shops by 1st september, I think Steve Jobs might have influenced this one!

Wait for the bundles though.

Nice find, couldn't see it on amazon

looks like a lean mean grilling machine from the side

or wait another couple of months for the obvious Christmas price wars...

Where is the drive bay?

is it just me or does tht not look as nice as the original? looks nearly budget made...

hot for those who must be the first ones to have it

i personally would wait for a better price from other retailers (amazon's prices aer usually high imo)

$299 in US of A

Yeah I have to agree. It doesn't look that great. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty cool how it's got all the features of the normal PS3 + better HD. But it just looks cheap. The original PS3 looks really good, this looks budget made as the poster above said.

looks cheap, another well kept secret lol

looks nice although a bit like a psp battery from above

the top looks like a dashboard of VW cars..!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Looks much better, at least they have got rid of the cheap and nasty 'piano black' finish.

Will we beable to upgrade the hard drive to the 500GB WD scorpio?

So is this retro-compatible with PS2 games..?

I've got the original but I can afford to get the new one and funnily enough, I don't think it looks cheap...

I don't know who would trust an Amazon Pre Order - Voted Cold

If you don't like the look of it and want a cheap PS3 buy a broken PS3, extend the warranty, phone a week or so later and say it's just broke, claim on the extended warranty - job done.

i bought the 80gb at hmv last week for 300

Why not? I've not had a problem in the past ....

Prefer my Original 60gb one tbh - adding a new drive was one of the first things I did anyway.

No. if you wanted that you would have got a launch 60gb ps3 (some can still be picked up by craiglist, paypal or even local adverts):thumbsup:. Otherwise get a cheap ps2 slim....they are under £30 now.

Continuous play is cancelled due to that reason.

Prefer my 80GB : )

Wonder if Tesco Direct will be doing 20% off pre orders? May be worth keeping an eye out.

Not as good looking as the original for me. Minus

Better power useage. Plus

50 Pounds too much, I was expecting 200 quid. And with it being 299 Dollars it should be. Minus

Shame, still be interesting to see if the 360 is lowered in price though.

The xbox 360 rrp has gone up actually due to weak pound to euro ratio.

For some reason i prefer the original, shiny black with the chrome trim, it looks much better even if it has a few more pounds.

Where is the drive bay?



bottom right

my god i cant believe you can preorder this already, theyve only just announced it

i like the original and wonder how hot this one will get

also to the people who wanna know about ps2 games, trust me, you dont play em on your ps3 even if you've got backwards compatibility

it's just not the done thing

The 360 has already had 2 huge price reductions... Its the PS3 turn now. You arent going to see another price reduction from Microsoft any time soon.

£250 is an incredible deal for what its offering, compared to the lower end 360 unit equivalent.

Expired as its not a deal as this is the rrp
