Expected price - first retailer where the PAL 80GB version is available for pre-order, release date 27/08/08.
Cashback available.

Also available at HMV on pre-order, same price - might be cheaper if you are a student (10% discount)

I realize this is not a 'hot' deal, however I know there is people out there who rather have a 80gb as soon as it comes out than a stadard 40gb for roughly the same price.
I merely want to point out that it is available for pre-order now

What's hot about the deal - is this not the RRP at launch date ?

I find this a good deal, i paid £425 for my 60gb ps3 (day it was released). and £299 for a 80gb one is fab. I wonder if it plays ps1 and ps2 games like the 60gb one??????

Do you think this will mean the 40GB ps3's will be price dropped by retailers... I mean they have to get rid of that stock somehow.. well let's hope! Also does anyone know where to find xbox 360's with benq drives rather than the dreaded lite-on ones?

I too hope, they sell the old one for cheaper, can't afford 300 even.

if the only difference with a 40gb one is size, then probably better get the 40gb for cheaper price and upgrade to a 250gb+ hard drive...these sell fairly cheap and not difficult to upgrade. honestly, im not sure what the 80gb ps3 will bring as compared to the 60gb version which does everything.

doesnt this comes with DS3?

Why's this voted cold? You get an 80gb HDD and a Dual Shock 3 Controller as standard? Whats wrong about this replacing the 40gb HDD with a Sixaxis as Standard?

Nothing wrong at all, just that the thread is highlighting the deal at standard rrp, not the definition of a hot deal.

Yes, the 80gb does have the hardware backwards compatibility.

Source for this? The euro version doesnt have BC.

I think you'll find that you are incorrect.

No it doesn't - will have the same specs as the current 40gb:

I'm voting cold if sold at RRP, how can it be hot?. There will be plenty to go around so should be bundle offers shortly.
Same goes for these postings for Wiis and Wii fit plank, lots of Nintendo advertising and short supply of hardware keeping prices high.

No, the euro version won't have PS2 backwards compatibility:
