First 'deal post' so any constructive criticism welcomed....

Whilst browsing through HMV @ Oxford St.... I overheard one of the sales staff pointing out the current PS3 package deals...

At the moment HMV are selling off the 40GB PS3 consoles for the low price of £244.67 which I thought wasn't bad.... this is a national promotion but obviously stock dependant.

At the time of posting there were three in stock at the Oxford Street (Marble Arch end) store...

Hope this helps someone out!

Package? What does the include? Any games? Accessories?

Original Poster

It's just the console mate.... no games or additional accessories...

So no controller?

It will have a controller but if it is the original 40Gb SKU (which i think we can assume it is) it will have the older Sixaxxis controller not the newer Dualshock rumble controller

good price, HOT, (the tesco 190 deal was better with GT proologue , who ever gotten one)

I'm sorry this has nothing to do with the deal but i thought people reading this may know, will my 60GB PS3 play PS1 and 2 games? I got it on launch day its the one with a card reader if this helps?

Good deal either, but none in wimbledon

Yes it will play them, i've got one too... Be warned though, graphically it appears to upgrade PS2 games so they look alright, PS1 it REALLY struggles and Gran Turismo 2 for example looks diabolical!!!

Thanks for the reply i thought this may be a problem, Ive got a 40" HD LCD that i sit about 4ft away from too so I'm guessing playing Metal Gear 1 is gonna look like a big blob?

I've got a 32inch HD and it looked like the PS3 didn't know what to do with the spare pixels.... it was far more blocky than it ever was using the PS1 or PS2.... HD TVs have resolutions around 1900x1200... PS1 top notich games were designed for 640x480

PS2 games do work fine though, i've rebought loads and they all play happily

Cheers, saves me a trip later!

not a good deal. for a few pounds you can get an 80gig one with a game and the new dualshock 3 controller

not a great deal, i payed £299 for the 80GB with Little big planet, resistance 2, The dark night 2disk special edition blu ray and HDMI lead 2 weeks ago from hmv.

very pricey for a defunct console. my 80gb worked out at £195 once I sold the extras in the amazon bundle before xmas.

If these are some of the original stock i.e. the ones with the PS1/2 functionality then they should fetch a decent price on the 'Bay and would probably be worth buying to sell on. The extra money would likely get you a newer one with games and the like.

If they don't play PS1/2 games then seems a bit overpriced tbh.

Cold for me I am going to get ps3 80gb fifa 09 resistance 2 i am ledgend and blu ray remote...

I don't think this is a bad price, especially since we already have games (our housemate also has a playstation which we've bought games for). Thanks for the headsup, I got mine in Marble Arch (Nearer Bond Street Station).
