Walked back into the electronics department of my local Supercenter in Massillon, OH. They have a pallet filled with the 12GB SSD PS3s for $100. I know their quality is questionable because of the harddrive almost having to be upgraded.

Yea you could probably find a decent sized hard drive for like what? $50 and under? Looks like a good deal to me. Probably the only thing that would beat this would be a Black Friday bundle.

A brand new unit for $100 is a great deal. Refurb'd or preowned units with bigger HDDs retail for more, but you can invest into as big a HDD as you want, and if you do .AVI or .MP4 backups of your video content, use apps, use PS+ to get free games each month...it's worth it as a Blu-Ray player/App User/Game System.

I've been thinking about another ps3 just to set up a tv and play seat separately so I can do gran turismo racing.

Was this BF 2013 price? Or were they $150?

Either way these are hard to find in my area. I don't think they make the 12GB units anymore. For $100 it's a steal and there was resale value in these too

I should have said "value", but that only applies to this model at its usual price.

I wouldn't mind another PS3 at that price.  Although, I want a azure blue one or red as I already have a charcoal slim.

Thinking about getting my co-worker a hard drive for his super slim.  I don't know anything about the super slim.  Except that you need an enclosure, which I might look up later along with installation of a hard drive on a super slim.

He doesn't have Internet at his house, so a 160GB might be too much.  He says his 12GB is full and doesn't let him play/add more games than he already has.

note their website no longer shows the actual in-store price. I tested it with OP's location and it came up $199. When I tried it on the walmart app for iOS it showed $100.

can probably take that on your phone and PM at bby or target YMMV of course, but still plausible.

I can't find it on the app. Is there any chance of Walmart price matching if I can find it?

Even better idea above me

This might work for some. Order the bundle for in store pickup. Then shoot Walmart CS an email with the picture, and ask for a price adjustment. The worst they can say is no. This method worked when the white Xbox 360 4GB went on sale.

I found it on the app. But it's showing a $199 price. And there is one in stock near me. Are you guys seeing it for $100 but just not in stock?

Walmart does NOT price match their web site.

Best buy has to confirm the price on their own computers.

Target is the most likely to PM it if you show them your phone.

On the way to Walmart that has it in stock. Doubtful it's $100 but it's literally a 5 minute walk away. Fingers crossed

In the Android app it shows $199 and in stock in only one local store near me (most stores show oos).

yes. But I can almost guarantee no other store but OP's will have it for $100. Maybe you guys can get lucky with a price match.
