This has got to be the best deal and price for a 320gb Playstation 3 at the moment. The silver controllers sell for a nice price it seems.

I used my Gamestation credit to get this so I am so glad I didn't manage to sell it on here in the end.

These are Brand New and they come with an additional Dualshock 3 silver controller in the box.

Found this at Gamestation Exeter store, these was 3 on display in the store window.

You can also add the latest Soul Calibur for an extra £25.

INSTORE only.

Hot.
I would imagine you would have a good chance of getting more than £25 credit for Soul Calibur as well.

I got a voucher printed off with my receipt that said I could trade in the game before a certain date and get £35 trade in for it - Guaranteed!

Haha, but seriously these are Brand New.

Nice price.

Hi there, is this a store only deal? On the website I can only find the 160gb black for that price.

Seems like a good deal but nothing on their website so I guess it may be store specific. But no doubt it's going to reach 1,000 degrees without anybody checking or confirming they are actually available across the country!

I'm not voting either way. Good deal if the OP got one for this price but I suspect this will be another wild goose chase for everybody else.

Instore only and yes nationwide as confirmed to me by the employee instore. Game and Gamestation don't get store specific NEW console deals.

I'm not doubting you got this, or was told that it was nationwide, but I have serious doubts it is.

If it was nationwide, why not advertise it on their site?

For £199 you can currently get a 160Gb black with one controller at Gamestation. To be able to buy a silver 320Gb with two controllers for the same price simply seems too good to be true.

I'll happily eat my hat if it proves to be the case, but I'm not even going to bother phoning my local stores because I know what the answer will be.

These are limited edition so any stores that have any in stock will be asked to lower the prices to £199.99 from £229.99, they don't have it on their website as its only stocked in their stores now till all stock goes, for example the website says the Skyrim collectors edition are out of stock and were last at £49.99, they were never sold on the website at £49.99 but there was loads of stock in stores across the country and some stores still have stock now.

Well my hat's staying firmly on my head.

And I suspect that's where it will stay.

I don't get what your trying to prove, its nationwide, whether your local store has stock or not isn't the point, if your local store(s) typed the product into there till it would say that price.

Reading your quote again, it seems from your own words it's not nationwide - but store specific;

"any stores that have any in stock"

Nationwide would be where somebody like Tescos or PC World truly have items available across all stores, and advertised as such. This, so far, has only apparently been available in one store - yours. Even if it were available at a smattering of other stores, by the very essence of your comment "any stores that have any in stock" suggests many stores will not have any in stock, especially if they're just off loading old stock. That, to me, does not sound like nationwide.

Still never mind, it's already hit about 250 degrees - not bad for one sale.

It's NOT nationwide. As I said I'll eat my hat if it is, but I fully expect to come back here tomorrow and find hardly anybody has got one of these bargains. And I will phone my local stores tomorrow (even though I know I'll be wasting my time) just to see what they say.

I had all this a couple of weeks ago with a gamestation offer - phoned several stores only to be laughed at.

Sorry, I've chased too many wild geese and this I fear is another one.

Your actually starting to get a bit annoying now to be honest and your not making sense.

Your suggesting that a deal that is nationwide MUST mean that every store across THE WHOLE OF THE UK should have that suggested item in stock? So you ring up your local store and there is no stock that means that this isn't a nationwide deal does it?

IF every store across the UK gets told to do a price update on an item that then makes it a nationwide deal.

Some users may post tomorrow and say "Yes, my store has stock" and some may say "Damn, no stock near me" - That does not mean it isn't nationwide, it just means some users missed out on a deal.

I'll tell you what's getting annoying - people voting things hot when NOBODY else has confirmed the deal exists.

I'm sure you can provide proof of your deal if necessary - not that I'm asking you to - I'll leave others to do that.

I hope I'm proved wrong and that many people get one of these 'deals', but I suspect I won't be wrong. I expect a whole raft of people saying tomorrow that their local stores doesn't have any, even that they never had any if they're asked the question.

I don't know what sound geese make, but QUACK, QUACK will suffice.

Anyway, I'll check back tomorrow to see the progress. No doubt it'll be the "deal of the day" by then.

and if tescos sell out of beans it is then no longer nationwide? dont be so stupid.
if an item is at a price if in stock in all stores its nationwide.
availability is different.

now believing a random game employee about whether or not its nationwide.... lol thats another matter.
same as phoning - if the store doesn't have the item then they wouldn't have changed a price of said item and know nothing about it most likely.

edit: also if the deal is just that store it doesnt make it any less hot - just less available.
its not OPs fault that not everyone lives in their street.
...anyway - voted cold - nearest game+gamestation are 17miles away.

brilly, prices change automatically throughout the Game and Gamestation stores, whether the store changes the sticker price or not will depend how up to date they are on updating their display prices.

For example I picked up some 99p Game guides in the Exeter store yesterday and the majority of them scanned through at 1p proving prices are updated automatically throughout the stores, especially as the manager himself was unaware the guides I bought were now only a penny.

Why would the employee lie about it being nationwide or not? Gamestation staff do alot of stock transfers across stores so are quite aware of what goes on around them.

Voted cold because your nearest store is 17 miles away? Honestly?
Its only one vote so im not really bothered, but its based on the deal not the distance the store is from you.

When Best Buy was around for example and a good deal was posted I voted hot of the deal was good but the nearest store to me was MILES away.

A deal was seen. Then posted. People then will vote hot/cold and check if the deal is true. If the deal is true then everybody is happy. If the deal is not true, the thread will be expired and the world will move on. Pretty straightforward. What's happened to HUKD? The website is supposed to be all about helping each other find the best deals and save some money.

Silver? Is it 2001 again?

Can confirm this is nationwide, a friend of mine who works for Game said they came down last week and there is over 50+ around the country. None in London/Greater London - most in Scotland he says. =/

just buy a black ps3 and spray it silver

I have to agree about these offers its always the same you either go to the store or ring up and are told that you are wrong and there's no such offer or ever has been, ive even been in store with a picture off one of these deals of the receipt only to be told that it must of been a odd one and a certain shop, i then asked them to price check and the answer was the same. I don't believe a word im told by there staff as they don't seem to know a thing its usually **** what they tell you. I will believe it tomorrow when more than 3 people report getting this item at that price from different parts of the country.

I vote you cold. Alot of hot air without making a meaningful point or a constructive contribution to the community. If you are not willing to give people the benefit of the doubt (after all most of the members are spending there own time and effort to post these deals and help others) then at the very least be silent.

I agree with the OP. Just because a store is out of stock doesn't mean its not 'nationwide' as such. Unfortunately the Gamestation near me is tiny and useless and never has anything in stock so may be hopeless in my case. Also I kind of want the gamestop exclusive white console, but its £250 and out of stock. Still hot though. I don't see what is wrong with voting something hot even if only a few people manage to benefit from it.

MoneyEyes you are everything that is wrong with this site, dude!!!. You post an excellent deal you've found and dare to include details such as which store you bought it from, stock levels at aforementioned store and what you were told by members of staff.. Then to cap it all off you post at a time when the dedicated community deal authentication team is unavailable.

May your deal sink into the depths of the HUKD server, never to be seen by anyone - Atleast that way if it turns out your stupid and/or a liar, no one will feel robbed of their pathetic few degree's of imaginary digital democracy...

Sorry to rant, but grrr it makes me so mad. If I goto Exeter tomorrow and they don't have one, I'm coming round your house on the way home!!!!!!!!!!!

If you click on my name you should be able to set me to ignore. That would probably be for the best as I really cba to explain it to you. Cheers bud.

I've got two ps3s but tempted to get this. I need a new controller, was looking for a silver one to match MacBook Air. Having another system in the house is always nice too.

I think this site is inhabited by a load of teenagers who are more interested in getting "vote me hot" than wether or not a deal exists.

so what if the deal gets hot or cold, post your deal and move on

If I was the OP there is no way I would post a pic of the receipt, you either believe it or you dont
