Sony Playstation 3 320Gb console for $499 from Mwave this friday.

7 December 2010

A good price if all you want is the console. Most of the retailers are currently offering a bundle of console + TV + games. Its Sony backing the promo - will post the link below.

Mwave have 50 units on sale this Friday for $499 - about $50 cheaper than you can pick it up elsewhere. Its not a blinder of a price but reasonable. Its online only so you'll possibly need to fight the hoardes and server issues to get one.

Shipping on this can start to kill the deal unless your in Syd where its $10 local delivery or $0 for pick up from the warehouse. Delivery to Brisbane is $21. Melbourne $17 and Perth $21.54.

    The Sony PS3 bundle details that a lot of the other retailers are offering can be ]found here. And this is the promo from Mwave. http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/99d8b4866f754b41fad17d6363b4611cf87a85176e8cce4cffac882af80fb0526g.jpg

    Myer have the Playstation with PlayTV or Move for $559, so with the gift card 10% bonus you could get it for $509.

    I would also note that upgrading the PS3 hard drive is ]not difficult. A 500Gb sata 2.5 inch drive is around the ]$64 mark now. So for a little time and $363 ($299+$64) - oh, plus postage - you would end up with a PS3 with a 500Gb drive 'plus games'. I suspect that maybe the PS3 is concerned about the ]Kinect?

    Oh, not that it really matters but the 320Gb is current but the 120Gb ps3 is ] no longer in production so may have been sitting in a warehouse for a while.... might be the smell of burning dust for 30mins after first switching it on.... :D

    yea - by the time you add delivery into this the bundle makes more sense to buy at a knock down price.

    Am going to expire this as Disk Smiths are selling it for $449.

    FYI I thought to myself that maybe I might try to get one of the 120Gb PS3s - and as you might assume, at high noon there was no response from the site. About 20 mins or so later it came back and - of course - they were all sold out.

What do you think?
