Anyone know what simply games' customer service is like? I had to return my last PS4 and was glad I'd purchased from Tesco when I did.

Simply games is part of the rakuten group so can imagine its quite good for customer service.

​cuh-12xx it's lighter, quieter and more economical.
May actually be a moo point, but worth reading up on before taking the plunge.
I emailed them before to ask and they confirmed they do not have the latest model in stock

the newer model feels cheaper and the sleek power button has been replaced by a cheap mechanical one.. anyone would opt for the older model for the sake of a few inches and a little more power consumed..

I wouldn't worry about power consumption, differences are in manufacturing costs not performance (or power consumption)

"If you want to know the differences between the first CUH-1000 series … "If you want to know the differences between the first CUH-1000 series model of the PS4 and the new CUH-1100 series which Sony has been pushing on the market lately, the Japanese blog [Register or Login to view links] did an extensive teardown of the new console and found out every little discrepancy between the two SKUs.Power consumption between the two models is about the same both in stand-by mode and when turned on, while the CUH-1100 is about 50 grams lighter than its older counterpart, weighing 2.70 Kg instead of 2.75.The new motherboard has the model number SAB-001, while the original one was SAA-001. Below you can see two pictures featuring both sides of the new board.The motherboard layout is almost the same, the only big difference is that the CUH-1000 has a two-phase circuit between the power supply and the CPU and a four-phase one with the GPU. The CUH-1100 has a one-phase circuit with the CPU and a three-phase circuit linking to the GPU.The APU’s model number has changed to CXD90026AG (previously CXD90026G), but the lack of difference in the number indicates that there’s no change in processing power. Below you can see the old and the new APU chips compared (Old model above, new below, as it will be for all the pictures in this article).The Renesas R32C/118 system controller has also changed model number from A01-COL to A02-COL. Below you can see the two chips compared.The SDRAM connected to the sub-processor CXD90025G also changed model number from 4B2G1646E-BCK0 to K4B2G1646Q-BCMA.The 8-bit MCU (Microcontroller unit) by STMicroelectronics that was connected to the sub-processor is completely missing in the new model. From the wiring it seemed to be related to the Blu-Ray drive, but since the same chip was (and is) also included in the board of the Blu-Ray drive itself, maybe it was redundant originally. Below you can see a pic of the missing MCU.The power supply has changed part number from ADP-240AR to ADP-240CR and is now 24 grams lighter. The output rating has changed slightly as you can see from the pictures below.The heat sink features the other main difference, as the shape of the fins has been changed. The new one weighs 324 grams against 298 of the old one. Here’s a picture comparison:In the old CUH-1000 model, in order to raise the efficiency of the cooling depending on location, the fins have different angles in the high airflow area compared to the low airflow area. In the CUH-1100 model this has been omitted and all the fins have the same angle (editor’s note: now the fins are also all the same size, while previously the ones in the low airflow area were smaller).The design of the wi-fi antenna unit also seems to have been improved in order to reduce electromagnetic noise.All in all, according to the analysis, the changes seem to be minor revisions, mostly aimed to reduce manufacturing costs, as it’s normal during the lifetime of a console."Read more: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/playstation-4-ps4-news/new-ps4-model-cuh-11xxa-stores-replaces-playstation-4-cuh-10xxa-131019.html#ixzz3LxliMaG3

Courier to Northern Ireland is £15.95.



Just ordered. Courier to NI was free.

I cancelled my John Lewis order of the 1TB and PSTV for £329. It was too good a deal.

The main thing that would make me wait for the newer model over this is the fact that it's a bit quiter. I've heard the older model can get quite noisy (especially running the last of us apparently). Not sure how noticeable the reduction in noise on the newer models is though..

FAB, I was due delivery of my PS4 via SHOPTO today @ 3.40.. Chatted with them on there PAg via CHAT and was told it was fine to reject and will get returned to them for me to get Full Refund, so ordered this up for delivery tomorrow @ 249.99
Older model, but not that ased about that.. This is gonna get HOT HOT HOT!!!
Bet ya this is sold out by the end of the day lol

The changes are so minimal that it's my worth the extra money. It's most cost effective for Sony if anything.

All them games are terrible. I'd rather not have the hassle of trading the games in just to get the £40 back.

Not quite. That's a bit like saying you "got a free can of pringles" when you actually bought them on buy one get one free. Technically true, but doesn't quite tell the full story. You had me excited for a moment!

Granted, the deal does look good with the TV. However, those games would never get played if it was me so I avoided that deal and waited for something along the lines of this.

Those games are repetitive single player games with tepid missions that make you feel like you're going through the motions.

Agreed. Purchased yesterday when they had a £5.95 delivery charge but they've now reimbursed that.

Dave it was a fantastic deal, I was looking for a sony Bravia 55in T.V and was going to buy it anyway.John Lewis and all the other retailers had it around £950 even Richer sounds wasn't as cheap as Tesco .I paid £855 which is far cheaper than anywhere else and the PS4 and three games came with it for FREE

The PS4 and games were a bonus. If they were actually free you wouldn't have needed to spend a penny.

"This deal has really been fantastic ,my total cost has been £859 for the T.V ,PS4 and three games .So really the PS4 and the games are FREE and a discount on an already cheap T.V ,when every other retailer is selling the T.V on it's own for between £900 and over £1000 !"

i think he paid £859 oh hang on.. looks like a zero

Really surprised this deal isn't hotter. Has the PS4 been at this price before?

Keep up Favvers , If you had been reading my posts you would have noticed I have got it down to £855 total cost

so i ordered one of these today and i checked my online banking and i have been charged twice for a single ps4. the transactions are still pending and i hope that this will get resolved. i spoke to their customer services and they told me that the bank will automatically deal with it. has this happen to anyone else?

shout when you manage to reduce it to zero total

Thanks OP, ordered one, don't forget to go via Quidco \ Topcashback to save a few more quid.

Why is the white another 20 quid?

sunpreet

Why is the white another 20 quid?



Because white plastic is more expensive to produce, obviously!

These consoles are not UK machines, as a found out via Sony helpline.
The current model is C Chassis so this is two models old
