Smyths ps4 bundle £259 @ Smyths Toys

17
Found 8th Sep 2016
Went in to smyths today to pre order ps4 and Fifa 17

As the guy was looking the bundles were coming down in price because of the ps4.5 I bought the Star Wars ps4 bundle plus another game for £259.99 cheapest I could find it for!!! Needed it for a birthday present next week or might have held out to see if they come down more !

All the bundles I store were down in price too!

Unless you have ps4 games already, it makes no sense to buy it. The new Xbox one S comes with free 4k blue ray player and Netflix 4k etc built into it with 4k picture and hdmi 2.0. It also let's you play old xbox one s games so in my opinion much better than this for same price.

Unless you want a ps4 and it makes plenty of sense. What an astoundingly ignorant fanboy response (have a launch ps4 and swapped my kinectless xbone for a one s)

Maybe they prefer PS 4 exclusives and more people don't have 4k TVs than those that do and they might not be bothered about movies, when the s was announced people moaned the blu ray is a dead format and now we have the same people saying its a plus to get a S. Before a anyone shouts fanboy I have an S
also how in the hellis the b!u ray player free, its probably one of the more expensive parts of the console

​one slight flaw with your argument is Xbox is poo where as the PlayStation is for the players!

​It is technically more advanced with new technology. Ps4 will come with a new model as well called Neo this year with similar features like xbox one s plus at same price point but don't know when. Till the new model comes out it is no point to buy the old one as it will be obsolete the day it comes out. Better buy Xbox one s now and save your investment.

When I buy a console I buy it for exclusives. Everything else for the PC. So what exclusives can I get for the XB1 that I can't get for PC? Halo collection and some old Forza titles? I don't see a point in dropping £250 on a console when it does not have any exclusives.

However the XB1 is the cheapest 4K blu-ray player at the moment so it has that going for it and is the only reason am picking one up.

Have you been under a rock for the last 24hrs, its now called the pro and out November 10. Granted it doesn't have a 4k player but a lot of gamers arent interested in that but it is more powerful than the s. By your logic people should just wait for scorpion to release

And at the end of the day who cares what console someone buys, it there choice never understood why people get upset by this.


Unless you have ps4 games already???? WTF who would buy games for a console they didn't have or plan on getting!

Thanks for the update. Then you wait till November 10 or preorder the new Pro when available instead of buying this old and slow ​ machine. I see it as waste of money but I know there are die hard fans and nimbys out there. So this is just my opinion.

The only die hard fan here is you, why does it bother you what people buy? Before you shout fanboy I have both consoles on Xbox one S 2tb and a ps4


Can't you understand the simple concept that people have different tastes? As people have explained they might want a ps4 for its exclusives etc. So I take it you will not upgrade to a s Scorpio when it released as from your post no point get something more powerful when you have an S, me I probably will

Just like you are entitled to your opinion so am I. I can't just wait and see people peddling old electronic rubbish for today,s prices. There is no bargain in it. Just ignorance.

Yes I have a 4k TV which I bought for very cheap. ​You don't need a 4k TV to use a 4k player. It can output at 1080p/full HD as well and you may be able to buy a 4k TV later. But if you have 1080p output player, it is not possible to get 4k output from it. Some 4k TVs will let you upscale picture to 4k but it not good as the real thing as it is missing 4k data.

I know that. It just amazes me that people bought them but can't get the best out of it, which is just a waste of money unless as you say they plan to get a 4k TV, but it looks a lot nicer and takes up a lot less room than the old Xbox one which is a plus

OP - did you get the Lego Star Wars bundle AND an extra game for £259? I only see the bundle for that price (so Force Awakens film and Lego game in the box). If so, what other game did you get - I have same situation of a birthday next week and this could suit. Cheers

If u have a 7 year old son who desperately wants a ps4 for his birthday it's a pretty good deal!!!!!
If he's wanted the new Xbox I'd have saved to buy him that but he didn't !!!
