And postage?



Next day delivery was £9.50 there are other delivery options (possibly cheaper or free...)

You can pick it up for free
Is this a good price?

I think this is about average price
You have to add postage this isnt a great deal
if you collect it great deal
Free delivery if you're a forum member.

The problem is that even when running off disc many still install a large amount of data to the HDD, typically 4-5gb although it depends on the game (obviously). And then there are the patches.

Personally I wouldn't recommend a 12gb unless you have a spare 2.5" drive handy.

But you pays your money and you takes your choice.
It baffles me how something like this gets so hot as it may save you £5 when this... hotukdeals.com/dea…300 gets nothing although it is the cheapest out there by far?!?! this site baffles me!

Probably because that shirt is worthless, where as people would actually admit to owning a PS3.

Anyway, not that great considering delivery charges. And yes, you will have to use your own drive or buy one on the cheap. You'll also need a caddy for these models.

Going without a hard drive would be stupid, as you;d then miss out on PS Plus. Quite frankly I have no idea why anyone wouldnt use Plus if it was available to them.

A deal should be judged by its comparative place in the market, not the product, it's always the same kind of products that get heat on this website, as a percentage saving, this is not a deal in comparison to the villa shirt

It should be judged on value. Regardless though, the voting on this site rarely works out when most users aren't educated enough to vote correctly. Best example of it working would be Beats headphones, as they are, and always will be, incredibly poor value. Best example of it NOT working, would be pretty much any Apple product.
got this last month for 129, ugh.

anyone who got this for 99, nice work. This is definitely the cheapest you'll find this right now. Worth it for the prospect of upgrading to a 1tb HDD and getting PSplus.

So you're saying, Beats headphones will always be 'poor value' (regardless of their price), but Apple products aren't.X)

Thats not what I said at all.

If an iPhone was 50% off in a sale, it would be great value. If Beats headphones were 50% off in a sale, they'd still be way overpriced.
considering some games take 4GB to install and are necessary to install to play, don't get a 12gb console

If it wasn't for the nerds that invented the internet or developed the computer, or even the software that this board runs on. You wouldn't even be able to post here.
So hurrah for nerds, certainly done more than any overpaid footballer has.

Key word = if.
Costs about £45 to buy the hard drive bracket and 500gb drive from Amazon. Takes two minutes to fit. Cheap way of getting yourself a 500GB PS3 in my opinion. Hot.
Probably only about £15 more than that for a 1TB drive and bracket in fact.

Not to mention that nerds also invented medicine, electricity, telecommunications and high speed road/air travel.

Can you please tell me which nerd "invented" electricity?
Doesn't strike me as a fantastic deal. I'm not tempted, especially with the next gen consoles coming out soon and only 12gb storage, that's smaller than my phone...
I'm getting more and more tempted to get a PS3, but I'm still holding out for a proper price drop. It can't be too far away now surely. I know it will drop as soon as I buy a current price model, but I live in hope! Still, hot deal going by current prices.

Just get a HDD from Amazon for £40, meaning this deal is still WAY cheaper than the next expensive PS3

Well they didn't invent it technically, they discovered it but here you are:

universetoday.com/824…ty/

Still a lot more for mankind than any idiotic footballer has ever done.
My 80gb was full within a fortnight, purely due to game installs.
I really don't understand how this has made 5-600 degree heat either...
I picked up the PS3 for £109 4 months ago, and saw bundles going cheaper than that even back then, after I got mine...
Several times over since then I've seen deals in the region of £120.
Most places I've checked, have stock of this NOW for £129...so to wait a few days for delivery and save yourself less than £4 quid, makes it a hot deal??
Sorry, it's a cold from me...
Edited by: "brooklynbrawler" 11th Apr 2013
It's only saving you 4 quid, it's been 129 on that site for quite a while.

Would be an ok deal if you managed to get free delivery though. Cant be bothered to sign in to look at the alternative delivery prices.
It's actually cheaper on Amazon if you don't mind a warehouse one:

amazon.co.uk/gp/…sed
lori440

Is this a good price?



Well the guy who posted the deal obviously thought so. But why not have a little look on amazon or play for yourself?
