Apparently this is available only in store, but you can check online for availability and schedule an in store pick-up.

You have to check the in-store clearance at specific Best Buy stores. I checked about half a dozen in my state and they didn't have any hardware on clearance.

This is an instance of "EXTREME" YMMV

The link the TC provided is his local store. Where it says "Best Buy > In-Store Clearance > VICTORY LAKES TEXAS" click on the "In-Store Clearance" link and then "Shop a different store" to change it to a different store.

If the store you bought it from has it on clearance for this price now then yes you should be able to. But if you're talking about price-matching the link the TC provided then unfortunately no, they won't price-match clearance items from other stores.

They usually will not price match clearance items. It's store specific.

Is a PS3 worth the trip? Already own a 360.

Off-topic, but hey, God of War PSP for $9.99 and Invizimals PSP for $23.99.

Not bad, I might drop in and see if they have 'em. I wonder where they stock the PSP titles these days.

Huge gaming industry there. The company that made Doom or one of the earlier pioneer games started in Texas and programmers/game developers/producers have stayed in the area ever since.

Yes this year is the perfectly worst time to buy a this generation console.


Ps3 still has a blu ray player. But PS3 cheap now and Next box/Wii U later?

We just got our first PS3 this past xmas. Cheap current gen with lots of exclusives to play, the vast majority of which are also cheap. If you ask me, this is precisely the time to buy a current gen console. I could have gotten us a Wii U (which I do want), but that would be far more expensive especially when you add in game cost, and still you have a tiny library to choose from. So I went with a PS3 (to go along with 360 and Wii). Not to mention blu-ray. We had not had that before either.

Borderlands 2 producer "Gearbox" is headquartered in Dallas. EA has offices in Austin.

Edit: I wish the vita was $149

I would bite on this deal. I have a PS3 but it's the console/Blu-ray for my gf's place. I could use a PS3/Blu-ray at my place.

That's what I'm thinking. Why not pick up a second one? If I came across a cheap Slim model, I'd pick it up in a heartbeat. I want to have a second one as a backup. I'm not going to pick up the new consoles out of the gate. Just not worth it to me, and there's a ton of uncertainty involved with each console at the moment.

If I bought one of these systems on Monday for $249, can I just go back and they will give me $100 difference back ?, also do I need to bring the system or just the receipt?, I may just buy an extra one for my brother, thanks

This is the BEST time to buy a PS3. Pricing is low, the games library is rich and varied and playstation plus will keep you warm at night. All that and the nexgen systems coming this fall will be immature with at best a handful of games you might want to play upon release.

Don't forget about GearBox :) GearBox AND id are here in Dallas. Terminal Reality is here although they really haven't developed anything noteworthy in a while. There are several others but can't remember who.

Damn, I've been thinking about picking up a blueray player lately and I've basically wanted a PS3 since it was released but never wanted to pay more than like $150. So, this deal is basically the perfect scenario. Too bad it's not here in Green Bay, WI =(

Saw these at the store... at $249 still!

$149 is a no brainer for me, but at normal price I'm not so sure. The CAGness won't allow. Force is too strong.
