Tesco - Sony PS3 Super Slim 12GB - £99 - Now live on Tesco Direct!

Found 24th Dec 2013
I have just seen an advert on TV from Tesco saying that they will be selling 12GB PS3s at £99 - FROM BOXING DAY!

Advert not entirely clear but seemed to imply that this deal will be available in store AND online.

Seems a good deal to me! Get your goose nets ready.

Edit:

oUkTuRkEyIII - Possibly £89 Using new customer code (TDX-RVNH)

Deal now available online!

I think this will be the standard price next year, probably even less.

I'm not voting either way because we have not got a telly to play it on

No telly, what a shame. Looks like that demon in a red costume has missed you out again.

I've been trying to get us a freecycle one or a tesco one for a couple of weeks. I failed. Shes in a mood and christmas is going to be miserable.

Christmas without the telly? I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd trade lives with you... (_;)

hmm, does seem to be going down. But this is still good value. May pick one up for my parents as they really just need one device to stream stuff off.

How about a now tv box? apparently they can have iplayer etc installed on it easily -dont know much about this though

Not bad but the bundle with GT6 LE and The Last of Us is better value imo as it is the 500GB console.

Would definitely hold out though as these will plummet shortly imo.

Comes with 12GB solid state HDD - not enough for serious downloading or games with big install requirements.

But can be switched for a larger conventional HDD if you need more space.

Hope that helps!

No mate

This will work out of the box. It has 12gb of flash storage. However, you can also upgrade it with your own hard drive (standard laptop drive)

I would recommend doing the latter as if you're downloading anything from PSN or PS+ it will fill up very quickly. The 12gb model would not even fit some games on it.

Factor the cost of a hdd when buying! Was fine for me as I had a spare knocking around

The bundle is £70 worth of games though and has been available for £190

As I said, not bad if you need one right now but prices will drop more after Christmas imo.

Yeah installing a HDD will be necessary for anyone planning to play games on it. 12GB may be enough if you only use it as a blu-ray/media player.
Very easy to install a HDD, just search for 2.5 sata HDD on Amazon. Plenty of Youtube video guides if you have any problems with installation (doubtful). And you may want to get the PS3 HDD bracket (about £5), you can install HDD without it but may end up bending the sata pins...

When I got my 12GB slim it was to replace a broken original model PS3, so I just took my 320GB drive out of there and installed with bracket into new PS3.
But for those with a PS+ subscription I'd recommend a 500GB or 640GB drive, my 320 is starting to run out of space.

For £20 more you can get a 500GB console, an extra controller and one of the best PS3 exclusives.

Was the Asda post active or even known about when i posted my comment??

I guess you could compare the offer to say back in the early 90's and comparing a £80 Sega Master System to a £140 Sega Mega Drive. Or a £100 Playstation to a £219 Playstation 2!. Ok so tech and price difference is different but the point remains if you recall those systems.

But there is an entire technology generation (near 10 year) difference to also consider here. But if not a generation console owner then deffo a bargain and deffo hot seeing as the price of used games will drop in the sales.

In theory you could buy a new PS3 and about 25 well rated and classic used games for under £200!. And looking at things that way, well?.

Not if you want to upgrade the hard drive to 1TB as I'll be doing (too many games from PS+!).
Edited by: "callum9999" 24th Dec 2013

ASDA are doing the 500GB version in Red, with an extra controller and The Last of Us game for just 20 quid more on boxing day - makes this deal look like a ripoff.
Cold for that reason, unless you really want a black one.

Nice price.

No as I'm a PC gamer but you've kind of put me off buying one in the sales now

possiblly £84

Hot price but still don't like the new super slim design with the cheap plasticky ejector disc cover. The last slim design was way much better.
