Coworker called the 2 stores with limited inventory and they claimed to not have any.

Stock checker or customer service fail.

Edit: He called another guy who claimed their inventory system has been messed up and they haven't had any since Thanksgiving.


I went to 3 stores in the Buffalo NY area that the inventory checker said "in stock" for and came home with only a Skylander for my son. The employee at the last store played around with his machine for about 15 mins looking for one but told me when they first were delivered to the stores there were only 3 per case and the computer recognized each case as 4 so inventory is off. Sounds like a pretty simple problem to not have fixed in 2 months.

I have 5 stores near me with either limited stock or in stock. I have the feeling I'll be shutout on Friday when I call.

I grabbed one this morning. I think it was the last one at the store. Thanks for the heads up.

EDIT

The DLC codes work too even though they are expired.

Uncharted is one of the best game series ever. I wasn't really a fan of Infamous though...I might give it another try at some point.

I got the PS3 Super Slim Uncharted 3 GOTY bundle on CowBoom for $150 two weeks ago...



How is that website? I've never purchased anything from it so I'm a bit leery. I noticed for the most part blemishes are mentioned but not in detail. Have you had good dealings with it?

Thanks in advance for any information.

I really want one of these, but don't have it in stock.

BB has it... For $299.99 though. Damn it.

One caveat on the bundle - the uncharted 2 GotY edition that comes with the system has codes for DLC. The codes on some of these are expired already, and don't work. This is unfortunate, as the co-op mode in the DLC is fun.


Just FYI, the insert said the code had expired at the end of 2012 but I was still able to redeem it a couple days ago. Expiration dates of bundled DLC are often extended per Sony (https://support.us.p...etail/a_id/1576)

You really should give it a second try. Once you get over how lame Cole is, the rest of the series is damn awesome. :)

Been meaning to get on here and give a big shout out to the OP.

Five days ago, my fat 80gb system stopped reading discs. Tore it apart and cleaned it - no dice. Remembered this thread, used the inventory checker, and held my breath when we drove the hour to the nearest Target (we were shopping out of town anyway). Lo and behold, they had one system left, hidden behind a more current unit. Snatched it up right quick. After letting it run overnight to transfer all the old files, the new beast is alive.

BIG THANKS for making me aware of this deals' existence!

Dude, I'm in the same boat as you. My 80GB is on its last leg and I'm looking to replace it. How did you go about transferring stuff?

I can't believe I found one of these at my local target with limited quantities. The box is a bit beatup but I'll take it. Now to go throw that fat ps3 out the window!

2 Ways if you have an ethernet wire can connect the two and transfer files that way or do a backup on the original PS3 to an external HDD and then upload it to the new PS3.

250gbs. I am tempted on this, as I have plenty of stores that list having them. Does this come with any PS+? I for sure want that.

none of my stores had it. i don't even know if it would make logical sense to buy a ps3 in 2013. but at 199 it seems like it's a good buy. i am torn. especially since i have a ton of shooters for xbox and nothing for ps3 id be starting from scratch.

It does make sense. With rumors that the PS4 won't be backwards compatible or play used games it makes much sense.

The PS3 does have a lot to offer but with the next gen around the corner and you have a 360 that clearly has been satisfactory for you this entire gen and the PS3 hasn't snared you yet, it may make sense to pass.

Paid $285 & I'll have it by Tuesday, all in all Im pleased, Ive wanted a bluray player anywa.

Target YMMV is 99% failure; a waste of time in my community.. Do not expect to see the deals..

My wife and I were out grocery shopping at one of the local Targets (City of Industry, if anyone cares) that previously showed "phantom inventory" for PS3 Black Friday bundles, and there it was in the case today. It had a bit of wear on the corners of the box, but it was completely sealed. I had to flag down an employee because no one was in electronics, but they said they didn't think it was a return... maybe an employee was hiding it in the back? Anyway, snagged it immediately.

I feel bad about sending back the White PS3 bundle I got from Amazon, but this is considerably cheaper. Just hope they don't flag my account.
