Wow! Seems like a very good deal. Sad that i'll have to miss out on it. I can't afford anything this month.

Does anyone know if it's likely that this PS3 bundle or similar ones like it will be sold for this price through December?.... or is November pretty much it? Would really like to know.

If it was like last year, the $200 deal is for Black Friday only, or when these particular bundles sell out (which will be fairly quick). After that you may see some sales on PS3 hardware, but it probably won't be as good as Black Friday...

Nice prices. I am by no means a PS3 fan. But $200 for blu ray player, streaming media, streaming music, and a decent game library is great deal. If gaming is not your priority this system will make people quite happy.


get the f'ck out of here you flame-baiting piece of sh't.

You'll probably see them on and off for $200-$230 until Xmas or maybe buy a PS3 and get a $xx gift card type of offers

If you look at the unboxing PS3 videos you'll see the system comes in 2 boxes (the bundle info on the thin outer box and base PS3 info on the inner box)

What Sony does is that they make regular base PS3's and boxes -- when they have a bundle, they slip in extra bundle items into the base box and put a 2nd thin box over it from factory. Sony sometimes sends bundle items + thin outer boxes to some retailers so they can make their own bundles from base PS3 systems that they have in stock

Good thing about the super slim PS3 is that there are currently no base systems for sale -- they're all selling bundles so all retailers will get bundles directly from Sony


From what I saw (in previous years), store specific bundles placed whatever exclusive game inside the box and simply put a sticker on the box that an extra game was included...

I don't think I have seen consoles sell for more than $20 off after Black Friday, but there will probably be discounts, just not as good as Black Friday...

I know the GS my buddy manages only got 6 of the bundles last year and 50 people showed up at least for opening to try and get one.

Huh? PS3 has vast library of quality exclusives and gets the same 3rd party support the 360 does.

He pretty much insinuated the PS3's gaming library wasn't great and wasn't it's selling point. If he had said disregarding PS3's gaming library, this is a great media device,noone would have had to wonder.

Now I'm ashamed to admit I'm happy about the bundles because it would undermine my credentials as a gamer:bouncy:

Last year the bundle was literally at every major retailer, so it was pretty easy to find at my local Gamestops. Having said that, they definitely didn't have a ton of them like Best Buy or Walmart did. It's not clear how many retailers will be getting the bundle this year as the two ads so far are 50/50 with Shopko getting it and AAFES not getting it.

The AAFES didn't carry the PS3 BF bundle last year either, so it isn't that surprising IMO. I do expect that all the other major retailers will...

You can put a new hard drive in. Memory is not storage. Memory can not be upgraded.

Yes, by assimilating into your culture with help playing your devices to populate and then conquer your planet without you knowing.

then other stuff like Scott pilgrim, the Simpsons arcade game, etc. Stuff that's not on PC really.

Man, I wouldn't base AAFES for anything. This if nothing else would be one of the standard holiday sale variations: new PS3 superslim and 2 games. Some will mix and match with it, but that's the "holiday bundle." Which is basically the same as last year, which was everywhere.

I'm more interested in the system on its own. There's no reason why this or the slim shouldn't be $150. It'd basically be the same situation the 360 was in last year.

Same here. GoW, Killzone, Resistance, Uncharted, Yakuza, Genji. I even picked up HotD cause I hate wii. Got in on that Move bundle for $40 from NewEgg the other day. Gonna be playing Halo 4 for the foreseeable future though. I have around 280 Xbox 360 games now vs 21 PS3 and 8 or 10 Wii.

I just mentioned this in another thread, lol. It's the main area where Sony fails this generation. Instead of dropping the price they'd rather throw in games or a beefed up HDD. The average gamer, or average parent could care less about all the extra crap, they just want the cheapest option. Sony could really make up some headway and do great this Holiday season if they'd just sell a bare-bones model like the 5GB 360 for around the price you mentioned. It's perplexing.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?
