You can also add GT5 + Real Triggers for FREE HERE and add an optional game for £20 extra, you also get 3 months lovefilm free. PS3 320GB + GT5 + Triggers + FIFA 12 + 3 months lovefilm for under £200 is a good deal

LOL - Knew I should have waited!

Didn't think the 320GB would come down to this price off Amazon within 2 weeks though.

Oh Well - sods law.

Will be getting another once they break the £120 barrier.... Probably in another fortnight!

You could return your console back to Amazon and get this instead, although would you utilise the extra capacity? If you're going to be a light user then I'd say you got a decent deal with the 160gb for £20 less

Great price for a great console. Do you think its going cheap because ps4 round the corner?

All the more reason why I couldn't see all the fuss about the Amazon 160GB for £159.99 deal that went ultra hot on here the other week.

Seriously considering replacing my 60GB launch model.

Wow... you still have launch model mine packed in about 2 years after amazing!!

Yeah it was a day one model from Play.com, has a 640GB HDD which is over half full so a bit reluctant to replace it. Bit noisy(though I swear it's got a bit quieter lately). My mates model was bought about a year and a half after mine and packed in a few weeks ago(he lost all his game saves from his previous 4 years worth of gaming) so I do wonder if it will give up on me. All my game saves are backed up via my psn storage etc so I'm fully prepared if it should go.

I would definitely utilise the extra capacity. Doubt I could return it seeing that I have downloaded apps iPlayer etc and demos - NBA JAM - dam that's a good game.

Just a bit annoyed with myself that I didn't have any kind of patience - would have rather spent the extra £20 on this.

Oh well - you live an learn.

I already had a remote bought a couple of years ago on one of Plays deals for a tenner. There is no Blu Ray player on the market that does so much for what I paid - £170 with a game and remote so not gonna worry too much.

I WILL be pi55ed off if the 160 comes down to £130 or under in the next month!

Had to cancel Zavvi and go with Amazon and next day delivery !!! Hopefully Zavvi accept my cancellations.

I've still got my original fat 60gb, it must be 5 years old, used every day, still going strong, it's a tank.... Lol

Doesn't really matter if ps4 round the corner, ps3 still be around next 4 years supported by sony, their still great as media player / blu ray and games will be around for years just like ps2

I dunno about that? i think it's rather a stretch to think Sony will care enough to support the PS3 for another 4 years, lol, X) fair price for a good package tho, have some heat OP.(_;)

Wipe the HD and reset to factory settings, package it back up and send it back to Amazon, they have one of the best returns policy there is.

I know that their CS is probably the best I have had from an Internet retailer. I have opened and loaded GT5 - but not updated.

It's gonna cost me a tenner to return + £20.

If it was as easy as returning for free and paying the extra £20 I would.

I think I may be better off saving that £30 and putting it towards an HD upgrade. Can you point me in the direction of any sites or give me any advice on which HD to get and getting the thing to play various formats, streaming, DNLA etc?

I would like to use it as a hub - storing video and music files - is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

Search questions like that in Google and seems to come up with gack

Cheers

EDIT - for anyone even contemplating this deal - don't bother - just buy it! A Wi Fi enabled 3D Blu Ray player with games, internet, HD for £180 is a no brainer IMO!

If only I knew how to make the most of the one I have!

Here are some potential HDD to start you off: HDD's

Here is a guide that I hope you find helpful to help you understand the PS3's media capabilities: Media Guide

You can buy me a few pints sometime

Can you jailbreak the new ones/firmware???

No and to be honest homebrew/backups on the PS3 is a bit of a waste of time and money anyway. You'd be better off just waiting for a few months after each game is released when you can then get most of them for around the £10-20 mark.

This is a fantastic deal.

I bought the 160gb slim about 6 months ago and it's almost as noisy as my old 60gb model from day one. Does this suffer with the same
problem (due to cheap components to reduce cost apparently)

I have a launch model 60gb

didn't pay 424.99 for it no i waited until it dropped to 399.99

My original 60gb packed up within a year and got a replacement free of charge from Sony

my 60gb is **** for watching anything as its so noisy plus it heats the room rather well

is the 320gb a silent model?

Mine is noisy as hell when reading discs (new slim 160gb model) appears to be the same for the 320 too..
PS3 Slim noise

Damn - only ordered the 160GB one last night. Just saw this and went to see if I could cancel my order and it has been despatched.

Oh well, probably don't need the extra HDD and can put the £20 towards a game - Mortal Kombat maybe - I'm liking the look of fighting as Freddy :P

Well you lose online play but doesn't bother me as that's what my xbox is for and it doesn't cost money for the back ups, i have all the ps3 exclusives that i want to play, so i am more than happy with my jb ps3.

I've had 2 conflicting comments.
I will ask again can you jailbreak the ps3 if so is there any restrictions with firmware or model

Got two ps3s one fat, one slim, my slim is alot quieter when watching films on blu ray even when the fan kicks in

Amazing that people posting don't know that the slim is quieter than the old phat model. Will you next be asking whether the 4/250/320gb 360s are more reliable than the Elites and Arcades? >.>

Just buy a new hdd. I've replaced my old launch model as the fans were noisy as hell, with a slim and slapped a 500Gig hard drive in it. Get PlayTV and you 've got a really good tv recorder.

Seems like a great deal.....still confused whether to buy PS3 or xbox360

FW 3.55 and below can be jailbroken, you can downgrade to fw 3.55 but only if it was that fw out of the box.

LOL i still have my japanese model which I imported 3 months before any UK models were even advertised. its rubbish tho, its massive, only 20GB HDD and no wifi and after an update I can no longer play UK dvds or Blu Ray on it lol so this is looking a good deal to me

Hi
So can I downgrade a new slim??

Thanks OP just ordered one, went through nectar for points and accepted amazon prime trial for free next day delivery.

HiSo can I downgrade a new slim??



Highly unlikely as the next FW update up from that was released in January 2011 so I doubt there will be any new slims knocking about with FW 3.55 installed.

good deal, have some heat.
