I love when people get owned and don't post after they get owned.



Agreed! Let us take a trip down memory lane with two of my favorites.


>.> Can't you not read? They're talking about the PS3 price reduction. Very misleading tittle and it shouldn't have even been in the "Video Games Deals" section >.> Don't blame you though since you're new but try to read the description for each section before posting. Anyway they are probably hinting the PS3 bundle with 2 games when they say new exciting PS3.


This is It! :roll:

Even at this price I am still on the fence about getting one. I was thinking about getting one just for the BluRay but I barely watch movies on my tv anymore and if I do a majority of it comes from alternative methods. Plus once I watch a movie I dont really see it again so investing on a PS3 just for the BluRay just isnt enough. I may get it once God of War comes out but other than that eh...MGS looks nice but nothing will ever be better than the original MGS on PSX.

"Sony PS3, SLIM PRESELL 2 Sold by Kmart"

I'm not so sure about the 8/24 release date, that's less than a week from today! Who knows, it could happen, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's placeholder either.

Sony's press conference is about 45 minutes away, so expect every major retailer to light up with their pre-orders shortly. It's also speculated that today's PSN downtime is the fabled 3.0 firmware update to include BC support for PS2. They will dominate this holiday season if everything rumored comes to pass.

Kind of fishy that the release date is less than a week away, yet they have no photo to show.

I am 99.9% sure KMART AND SEARS messed up they are the same company.

They probably meant to put the FAT PS3 on sale 8-24-09 at $299


NOT the SLIM.


Either way I pre-ordered the SLIM for $299 that way I have printed proof which they have to honor.

I think it was a mistake because who would buy that FAT?

$299 FAT 80GB
$299 SLIM 120GB


it was a mistake


So what? If the slim isn't real, they have to design one for you and send it? Tell the folks that ordered a $3200 TV for $9.99 at Best Buy last week that Best Buy needs to honor it.

Under the law, there is a difference. If an ad is so obviously wrong that the average person would know it is a mistake, they can legally not honor the advertised price. Either way, however, call the lawyers, you will get something out of them.

Now that the Slim could be $300, I'd buy the Fat for $200-$250.

I was considering selling my 6-GB also....but only if the Slim has BC that is comparable to the 60GB.

The thing is, my fat 60GB was fixed last year, so it's basically in perfect working order. My luck, I'd sell my 60GB and the slim will catch on fire 2 days after the warranty expires.

Anyhow, I agree the Sears and Kmart made a mistake - they suck so bad as a company...and are desperate to make a sale probably. That preorder was probably put there in reference to a price drop...but somebody dropped the ball.

Is there any place to watch the Sony press conference online?

The slim could cost a lot less to produce and therefore be sold at that price (not to mention that the 360 Elite will be going for a similar price).

I think the markdowns could be on the retailers' side of things to try and clear stock before the release of the slim. I'm still thinking that some feature may be lost with the slim as well (WIFI maybe?). ll be finally biting on a PS3 regardless.

If they don't announce a slim PS3, I can see a bundle. If they DO announce a Slim PS3, I don't see a bundle happening.

I can't imagine backwards compatibility for any other reason than to allow PS2 games to be sold via PSN. Easiest way to increase margins and ensure 100% compatibility....

The full Original Xbox and 360 games are decent sized downloads as well. Sony just has a better system in place to deal with that by allowing people to upgrade their own hard drives. Damn microsoft, I mean, I love my 360 and use it for all my gaming, but I wish I could have a larger hard drive. I would put all my games on that thing. If they announce the BC in the form of a firmware update I'd definitely pick up a PS3 again.

Yeah, now lets see if they announce the BC. That's the only way I'll buy a PS3 again, personally. They said the current PS3 will be that price starting tomorrow, does that mean the 160GB versions are $299 or all of them on the market? Maybe the 80GBs will be cheaper, or maybe they meant the 80gb will be the $299.
