Hello all. I've missed out on the recent deals, including Toys R Us and SonyStyle (Original PS3), and I was wondering if anyone has found a PS3 Slim deal for around $250.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I would keep, buy a 200-320gb HD for 50-60 bucks and enjoy.

Why do you want the slim when you have a new phat ps3?

new slim ps3 + ds3 is going to be 350+ so use that extra money on a game.

my 2 cents

My 60GB died the other day too. I would advise you to try and fix it yourself first. I got a PS3 power supply from ebay for $22 shipped and that fixed mine.

I would keep it personally and/or try to get it fixed as stated above. However, I do feel a price drop might come on the 80gb before Christmas (if you can wait that long) since they're coming out with a newer model:

Besides Star Trek, when it comes to movies, they're is no such thing as a "re-imagining." Run. It's only going to be a crappy remake.

Several websites are popping up offering the original model for $250. However, I'm still set on a Slim. There are just too many new features on there that I want.

Any good deals around?

Isn't the new feature(s) the ability to bitstream DTS?

I have bought a ps3 slim stand from gameyeeeha. and here i'd like to share something detailed information about ps3 slim stand with you.

In order to use the console vertically, you should have a vertical stand for it. As long as the PS3 Slime stands against a solid surface, you are free to keep it vertical.
The official PS3 Slim Stand is the all-new PlayStation 3 Slim's stand. It works by laying flat on whatever surface you deem fit, and then it holds your new gaming console upright. We get the impression that it'll do its job fairly well. Or, it's just the motivation you needed to craft one on your own and prove that you were indeed born with a few DIY genes.
