Genuine question alert: how long do you think it will be before the 12gb super slims hit the £100 mark?

12gb wont last you 1 week if you're a heavy gamer.

Sorry first of let me welcome you to this site, stick around with attitude like that for more than the 22 minutes you've already been a member here for and you won't be here for much longer let me rest assure of that.

And FYI I actually own an Xbox and have never owned a PS3 in my life but no what current prices are for them and the deal is hot value wise. But in your eyes I can see you only see one console in your life and that's the Xbox!

I'm guessing it will hit around £100 august/September time, maybe a little later.

Yeah i agree, if I were to get one of these I would be needing one with a bit more memory. Anyone know the price for an upgrade on the memory or isn't it possible like the xbox ?

About £38 for a 500GB drive from Amazon

they are probably just trolling/not being serious

"on the horizon" is actually in 2014..so at least 9 months left.besides, price wise they are not going to be comparable.ps4's going to be around 3 times this price.it makes perfect sense to buy a ps3 now at this price and enjoy it's excellent library of quality games + more great games to come.there is still a long time left.too soon to ignore ps3.

I must say I'm pretty dissapointed thus far in PS3 deals, there haven't been many and it was reported by several media outlets recently that when PS4 was announced, retailers would be dropping the prices of the current consoles but I haven't seen much of that at all yet.

although this one is good I expected better

most likely when ps4 is out.(new year 2014..9 months).I think that's why they designed this super slim model in first place.

Have to admit, like many, I was disappointed when the super slim announced with a greater price point than the previous slim model. Would love to get one of these models sooner rather than later, but I can wait. My backlog of games is large enough as it is.

its not a xbox. cold


troll or idiot or both

I bought one of these before xmas - just a heads up - there is no tray loading system for the bluray drive - its a cover which just slides across (which is rubbish to be honest!) - you also need to buy a separate HDD mounting bracket if you want to put your own 2.5" HDD in.

Doesn't even need to be at the release date for it to plummet, nearing the holidays, that is all that will be talking about. That and the new Xbox.. so I think it is a fair point. If I never got a PS3, I wouldn't buy one when a new one is out soon, I might aswell save up and I doubt it will be much more than £300, it just can't be done this time around.

Haven't these been selling for £125 quite a lot for the past few months? I imagine there will be a few similar deals within a couple of weeks if people can wait that long.

Also, having just got one of these at christmas, the 12GB really is tiny. I installed about 7 games on it and it was full, that is blu-ray games, not downloads, so I would advise anyone planning to play > 7ish games to buy an extra hard disk unless you want to reinstall the games every time you want to play them

Surely the best deal since that xmas £99 price glitch. Hot from me.

How heavy? I'm about a stone overweight, do you think it'll be suitable?

there are continuous rumours of a ps3 price drop, i'm not in a rush because of exams, so will wait.....
its easy to install a hard drive, the official sony hard drive cradle is about £15

To put that into perspective, I've just had a quick look and have a few examples - the game data for Gran Turismo 5 is using 11GB on my PS3 at the moment (I have a few extra cars and tracks but not anything close to all of them), L.A. Noire uses 1.3GB, and Black Ops 2 uses 2.5GB so 12GB wouldn't go very far! In fairness I believe GT5 has two install options so you can copy less to the hard drive and just suffer slightly longer loading times. Still a good price if you want to stick a bigger hard drive in, though I personally prefer the previous slim model to the latest one.

I was going to go with this deal, but isn't the game deal of 12GB console + additional controller + the littlebigplanet2 game for £159.99 a better deal ie: £25 extra for the game and controller?

How did you manage to find that deal? Was it in the Game newsletter or something?

No thanks.

Yes, much better. Post that as a separate deal.

Also includes PS+ trial so you can go nuts for a month with a few more games and then decide.

129.99 brand new sealed on gumtree. Really 555 heat.

How come it's not on the Groupon site that loads when you log in through Quidco? Is there any way to get Quidco with this?

2014? Like making up crap do you? It will be out Autumn this year, likely October/November so 7-8 months.

You obviously know **** all about consoles if you think anyone would ever release a console in the "new year" on purpose, it is ALWAYS before christmas, guess why? Only times it has not been is due to unforeseen delays.

The major price drops will likely happen around June, as they will likely set a solid release schedule at E3.

The "only" reason we got the PS3 in the new year last time was because of a shortage of diodes for the bluray player. So tell me "why" exactly would they be stupid enough to launch it after christmas, when if not for the shortage we would have had a November launch of the PS3?

The launch of the PlayStation 3 into the Japanese market on 10 November … The launch of the PlayStation 3 into the Japanese market on 10 November 2006 marked the second major seventh generation entertainment system to be released. The system was released seven days later on 17 November in the United States. Introduction into other world markets was delayed by a shortage of diodes for use in the Blu-ray disc player; the device was launched in European and other world markets in the first half of 2007



We live in a time where hardware is "expected" to be released pretty much worldwide within a month, they will NOT give the UK a launch date more then a month after the USA, just not going to happen.

I expect we will get it 3-7 days after the USA, if not the same day.

It only happened for the PS3 due to a shortage of parts, did you even read what I said.

also did you even look at this

The original PlayStation:
Japan: 3rd December 1994
North America: 9th September 1995
Europe: 29th September 1995

PlayStation 2:
Japan: 4th March 2000
North America: 26th October 2000
Europe: 24th November 2000

PlayStation 3
Japan: 11th November 2006
North America: 17th November 2006
Europe: 16th March 2007

The 'only' time we got it more then a month after USA was when there was a delay caused by manufacturing issues, we ALWAYS get them within 1-4 weeks of USA.

So we might be last, that in NO WAY means we will have to wait several months longer then USA, not in the slightest.
