Looks like the best price around at the moment for the super slim 12GB version of the PS3.

NOTE: if you wanted to, it would cost you another £44.89 to upgrade this to a 1TB hard drive using the drive mentioned in the first comment below. That would make the effective total £174.88 for a 1TB PS3 console. For comparison, a PS3 supplied with a 500GB drive as standard is about £190-200 at the moment.

Or Add a SSD Drive 128gb For under £50. So tempted to buy it, just for A blue ray player and a few games on the side. Heat added!

Just a quick question, when you upgrade the drive do you need to take out the 12GB SSD and discard it? Thanks guys!

The 12Gb is internal memory so it stays-put AFAIK

All you need to upgrade is a 2.5 HDD and a mounting bracket (if I'm honest you can replace the bracket with some cardboard if you're not planning on moving the PS3 much - it's just there to help the HDD line-up and stop it falling-out)

Me too, which is why it's so strange it's going cold.

and you get the 10% off don't you and is there Quidco ? Makes it only just over £100 for a fairly modern games console and blu ray

Any ideas what firmware would this be please?

You just wham a 2.5 hdd in and the console will ask to transfer to the new drive. the new drive prevents access to the 12gb internal unless it's removed.

very easy process, far easier than replacing an existing hdd with a new drive

All PS3 deals are voted cold by 8-year-olds who think this site is for telling people WHAT to buy and not how to buy it cheaply (ironically, most of them get things like PS3s 'from Santa' anyway - along with Ritalin)
