Prices on these are creeping down and the bundles are getting better, everybody needs to hold their nerve for a few more weeks and we could see some truly cheap deals.

ice cold

There is gonna be a price cut to the ps3 next MARCH 09 its probably worth waiting and getting a 360 to tide you over or imo just get a 360 and dont bother with a ps3 lol.

(D+Pad, as well as almost every other gaming site on the Web, has put two and two together and assumed this must mean a PS3 price cut is on the way in time for Easter 2009. This would coincide with the expected release of Killzone 2, probably the most important release on the console since LittleBigPlanet.)

I'm not sure it's realistic to expect that 360 to last till March, though. Price cuts will always be on the horizon, but for now this is a great deal for Christmas with three cracking AAA games.

if you strip away the games then you are getting a ps3 for about 216 pounds. this is only 60 pounds more than the cheapest xbox elite. you wouldn't vote a 155 pounds elite cold so no reason why you should think this offer is ice cold other than the fact you like to troll. This offer also means that the ps3 is only 116 pounds more than the cheapest arcade. Given a 100 pounds arcade (with no hard disk, no wifi, no internet browser, no rechargeable controller, no blu-ray, no upgradeable pvr functions, no generic keyboard and headphone support, no uncompressed PCM 7.1 audio support, limited maximum hard disk size, no bluetooth, no 1.3 hdmi support, no psp remote access (to your music and video collection and pvr functions), no printer functions, region-locking in many disk based games, paid for online gaming, expensive peripherals, and extremely noisier video playback and gaming) and a 216 pounds ps3 then it is not so straightforward which console is better value is it?

cex.co.uk offering cash for lbp = 28 pounds, fifa = 25 pounds motorstorm = 16 pounds net - 69 pounds (or 86 pounds credit vouchers)

cracking deal, just gonna hold out a bit more, prices are dropping every week, heat added:thumbsup:

Will definately be sub £200 in the next month or so. ps3 sales have been terrible worldwide over the key christmas sales period. Its being outsold 2 - 1 by the 360 in the states and europe now.

They dont really have any choice but to heavily discount the retail price at this point.

A very good deal for sure. thanks!

I'm not convinced this is any better than the other packs (LBP+FIFA+blu-ray+dvd remote). All depend on how much you'd rather have motorstorm over a film.

Voted hot but I'm holding off 'til the price of the console itself comes down.

One of the best ps3 deals at the moment so hot from me:thumbsup:

How can you argue that this is cold because you think prices are going to come down in march? That does not make it a bad deal. Then in march how about we all wait for the next round of price cuts.

At the moment it is the best deal on a PS3. Isn't that waht this site is about. This is what reailly gets to me about the forums on HUKD people voting things hot because of reasons which mean nothing.

Terrible worldwide? If you exclude the american market the PS3 is outselling the 360 overall (albeit by a fraction), so to say worldwide is nonsence, sales in america may be dissapointing but that is it. oh and dont forget the 1 year headstart on sales the 360 had.

360:
0.81M Japan
13.58M America
9.00M Others
23.39M (Sales excluding America: 9.8)



PS3
2.51M Japan
6.49M America
8.15M Others

17.16M (sales excluding america: 10.66m)

The 360 is selling well at the minute but that is purely down to the price cuts which probably came about due to microsoft panicing about how quickly the PS3 had caught up, but that will fizzle out then what theres only so many times you can cut prices.

As for the "key christmas sales period" bit, you are aware that its November..................

good deal , LBP rocks!

It's only Hot if the Bundle with games movies etc are suitable for either yourself or your family.......
i took the Amazon deal at £299.97 because of the Blu-ray film LBP and choice of game and blu-ray remote and Hdmi lead (yes i know its not worth £17.99).....but if it's suiting me i'm happy.

Elites have 120 gig hard drive though.

Bluetooth that does not work with nokia n95's and maybe all other nokia or maybe even other brands can't be bothered to test my other phones. I suspect SE phones will be OK

Why would you have a SONY psp hooked up to a MICROSOFT console

What you gonna print out from PS3, Seriously, that you would either want to or not use a PC for.

Region locked games must have been a ploy Sony has used in past as with any copy protection system as thats all it is really and at least it's not like every game for 360 has been region locked there are some but not as many as I thought would be locked the biggest selling games are not like Call Of Duty Series. I think the NHL 2k6 was as it refused to load on my PAL system but I was pleased about that really. :whistling:


Expensive peripherals What do I need to buy £17.99 wireless controller with 2 free games. A chat pad with mic headset for £8.99. £20 gig hard drive £19.99 120 gb @ £59.99 -89.99 yeah A Little over priced get WD BEV 120 for £28.00 + delivery a little time etc.

60gb hard drive with headset +mic and 3 month live subscription worth £14.99 according to M$ purchase option for £46.47 delivered.

Play n charge kit £9.99 with battery delivered spare battery from Comet , fair enough pink and blue £1.99 £2.99.

I can plug in my cheapy trust wireless keyboard and headphones if I want on 360. ;-)

Yeah you are right about the noise though whilst watching dvd's my gigaworks s750 7.1 are just about loud enough to cover that noise :roll:

My ps3 60 gig cost me £499.99 and the other one cost me £454.99 fair enough the first 2 xbox 360's cost me £299.99 or even £319.99 with a deal from woolworth's can't remember that was a while ago now and the elite cost me £329.99 with a few games from blockbuster but the other elite recently cost me £229.99 @ PC world with a few games, and then £60 worth of 4.99 titles like mx v atv untamed , colin mcrae dirt etc so.

I like both systems but neither are exactly cheap and without faults.

I prefer the 360 as it only needs an update every 2 months instead of every other day :lol

No I like them both the same

:pWhy does every PS3 deal have to result in the men willy fighting over which console is the best?

Most PS3 games are single player...or multiplayer via online only. Frankly though they should throw in an extra controller, they'd shift more consoles and "room multiplayer" (i.e not online...there must be a word that distinguishes each..anyone know it?) games...

"SPLITSCREEN Games"... i think thats the word

still over priced though but one of the better bundles at the moment for this kids console

i dont understand why people argue over consoles, you get whichever you like best or whatever you can afford. their all just as good. With the ps3 having blu-ray which still makes this console just as cheap as a standard arcade 360, take the blu-ray player aspect out of it lets say £100 which isnt even how much normal blu ray players sell for anyway, it works out (going off the calculation someone did at the start of the thread ((console without the games) 216 - (blue ray player) 100) = £116, also xbox live is £20-30 a year which makes the gaming side of the playstation 3 around £75, what more could you ask for a great console and free online play for £75. thats why ive always thought ps3 prices arent really ever going to drop and even if they do its only going to be by a small cut, as when you work it out your not paying a lot for what your getting. thats just me though, but still i think both the 360 and ps3 are just as good as each other. :thumbsup:

edit: keep your ps3 for three years and use it to play online thats 3 x 12 months xbox live so really the console eventually pays of for itself

you can get blue ray player for about £48 now you forgot to factor in that it is a ROM and PC drives are much cheaper once a few manufacturers start to make them actually they have put the price back up cheapest I could quickly find £61.90 inc. The price will drop once again once the rip off season has ended.


You would need to keep ps3 for longer than 3 years for it to pay for itself I suspect maths is not your strong point in the same way granma is mine : lol not laughing at you mate I was lol at my grammar


3x £26.99 is only £80.97

People are crazy if they think these are not going to drop in price a fair bit after christmas. Ps3 sales have been terrible this year, third party developers are canceling top titles on it. They dont have any choice but to drop the price.

All the third party titles look and play worse on the ps3 its basically 3 times the price of the 360 with most games looking worse...

i dont think yours is either :-D as you missed the point of my post,

please correct me then , where can you get a ps3 for 3x 12 months xbox live subs what do you mean if not that (I must be missing the point


also I mean about BLUE RAY ROM thats whats in ps3 strip it back its a PC ROM same as PC VERSION like the BR DVD-ROM in ps3 yeah maybe not by same manufacturer but it does in essence the same thing but lots cheaper so when you say £100 for cost of br player in ps3 thats a bit over the top for an actual price now as the same thing is much cheaper to buy as a COMPONENT. Not saying about using it in PC or watching anything from it just as a PART to buy to build something.

Care to offer some examples of "top titles" that have been cancelled?

As for split screen gaming thats an option on plenty of games, but isnt a necessicity as you can play against mates on the PS3 free of charge - also i find it a bit rubbish anyway as you lose half the screen.

i meant break everything down, dont think of PC's, think CONSOLES, as this isnt a pc nor is a 360

ok ill do this calculation proper for you. that post was just general

ok this deal u get 3 games, sell them off and someone earlier on worked out that the console by itself will end up costing you £216.

now take off £140 of the £216 as i havent ever seen a blu-ray player cheaper then that, i dont really look for them either, but i dont think you can get an external bluray player for less then that, i could be wrong ok lets call it £130 just to make sure.

£216 (console including bluray player) minus - £130 for the blue ray player aspect of console = £96

also i dont know the prices of xbox live as ive never bothered looking at them. ill just check now using search for summat with a lot of heat.

ok looks like a 12 month xbox live membership costs around £27

so earlier on i said 3 years of playing online on a ps3 will pay for itself, and it sure does 27 x 3 = £81.

£86 (for the console without bluray aspect) minus - £81 (3 years of paying to play online on a360)

if you still dont understand, i cant help you there, but when you work out how much its costing you for each part of a ps3, it works out better

£96 console
£130 blu ray
Free online play
£220 console
£27 xbox live
£20-30 hd player - (oh i forgot you need to buy an external one oops) plus arent hd dvds dead or in the process of dieing out.

take your pick

but even after all that their still just as good as each other, if you cant afford to have them tough, that doesnt really mean one is better then the other, (thats to everyone, not just to person im replying back to)
