Also, the Uncharted DLC slip expired on 12/31/12.


I know the paper says expired, but I just redeemed all of my codes from this bundle on the 3rd. Give it a shot because chances are they are still working.

After quite a search today, I found one Target in the Phoenix area that had one left. Because it is a discontinued item, they were able to hold it for me. They won't hold an item if it is on clearance.

FYI, the DPCI number is 207-23-0026.

My PS3 fat broke on Christmas Eve :cry:

the two must have games for me right now on ps3 are Ratchet and Clank Collection and All stars Battle Royale.

I am definitely a primary 360 gamer, so the ps3 is pretty much an exclusives machine for me

Kinda, not really though.

They come in cardboard sleeves, not cases.

Also, the Uncharted DLC slip expired on 12/31/12.


Serious!? I just bought those games off of someone on eBay. Ah well, no DLC for me.

Payday is Friday. Methinks the wife would kill me though.

Got two local stores with limited stock. $200 is nice, but Im kinda waiting on a cowboom deal around $120. The games arent must haves by any means so I just want a cheap console.


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

Three targets around my area had these bundles according to the stock locator so I drove to the first one and they did not have it because of a stock error that has not been fixed since black friday. I called the other two to see if they had the same mistake and apparently they did.

Word of advice: if you go out to get one call the store first because it might save you a trip.

Bought this bundle on Black Friday, such a great deal at this price. I didn't really like the design of it, but after I got it into my house, I love it. The top loading design is actually really cool.

But.. people who do NOT own one say they are a cheap and a poor redesign so they must be right?

This is a great deal. I picked one up from BF (actually a week after or so) and we are happy with the design. However this is our first PS3, so I can't compare them. The lid over the disc "tray" is a bit on the flimsy side and flexes if you push it, but I don't think it's a big deal. It seems pretty unlikely it would break.

The only complaints I'd have is that 1) I don't see a vertical stand for it anywhere, and it may be the case that it is not intended to be set up vertically. Maybe they just haven't come out with the stand yet, though? 2) I wish it had more than 2 USB ports. With a keyboard and Skylanders portal, we are left with no USB ports without swapping.

Take advantage of the blue tooth and try to score a cheap mouse/keyboard

Having owned all 3 designs myself, my only real problem with the super slim is that the sliding door on top can vibrate a bit and make extra noise. If you put some weight on it the noise is suppressed, but that's not a good solution.

Of course, unless you are playing a game/watching a movie with the system by your ear, you probably wouldn't notice anyway.

Any chance you saw the price of the regular Slim 160GB?


My Target hasn't carried those in months. This is the first time I have gotten a good deal on anything there in years.

Hadnt seen this listed a few weeks ago when I was looking at their listings, but gamestop has their BF bundle up on site. Searched a bunch of random areas and no stock showed up...who knows one of you guys could get lucky!!

Gamestop would be a much better deal since I could use credit and get it for no cash spent, wish it was in stock

I stand corrected. Pun, unfortunately intended. :)

I might pick that up, but $20 for a piece of plastic seems ridiculous. I'll wait for a sale.

I wasn't able to get this on BF, so I ended up getting the AC Bundle from Target instead with the $10 GC free with purchase and the AC Ezio Trilogy included free. Add the 5% off from total and selling both games and the PS+ trial, I basically got a 500 GB for about $200. It wasn't too bad since I'm not a big fan of Uncharted and Infamous.

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.

How hard does the disc snap on for this model? I am always paranoid after how awful the slim PS2s are with the snap, it has cracked a few discs. Maybe the other models are just like that but we can't actually see it.

Mine seems to be pretty smooth and not a "harsh" snap. I dont see there being any problem with cracking discs!

I went from my 60gig fat ps3 to the superslim and hated it when I first got the new one! But it grew on me and now I dont have a single regret about buying it. At the end of the day, do you watch and listen to your ps3 when playing a game or movie? Or do you watch your tv and listen to the audio that comes out of the speakers? If your like me and choose the latter then you wont even notice what it looks like and it is a pretty quiet system.

Limited stock near me. I may go just out of curiosity. That is a for sure price at $199 then? The OCD collector in me hates the games coming in cardboard sleeves though. But the price is tempting.

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

Why can't it? Just head to Target, buy one, take receipt to Best Buy, PM it. Then return the one you bought to Target..


That's a really dumb idea.. people don't have 400 dollars to spend waiting for 200 dollars to be refunded back to their credit card...

...also that would defeat the purpose if you could just pay the 199 unless you wanted RZ ponts.

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.
