    Went to Tescos last night and they had the 320gb for £269, and the 320gb with Move with a really crap game for £285. My search continues...

    There were probably 20 or so games in my local tesco extra £19.99 or under to choose from, I guess it would vary from store to store. Off the top of my head it was things like LBP, Killzone 2 etc - most games that are not new releases.

    Yes, was in my local store that I saw it. Can't see the same deal on tesco direct!

    If it is the same as what I saw, the yellow ticket says £269 but has in small print about including Playstation Move and a game. If I go past there tomorrow I will get a photo of the ticket as I would imagine it is the same deal for every branch.

    I can't believe I've missed out twice on that PS3 Slim 320GB £200 "mis-price or deliberate ploy" bundle from Play by a matter of minutes

    PC World have PS3 Slim 320G with Move and game for £287. Seems to be a similar deal to what others are doing.

    Well i got my aforementioned £199.99 ps3 250gb (with modnation racers) from Play.com on sunday.
    I'd like to tell you how great it's been, but i havent been able to use it yet, because it has had problems...might have been the infamous hdmi handshaking problem or something more fundamental ??
    To cut a long story short, i've tried all i can, but eventually had to bring up the 'restore ps3 to default' page...at least now i could see something, as before there was nothing but a black screen.
    Even that had messed up tho....and when i left for work this morning, it had been running for 12 hours....saying not to tun it off !
    Nice work Sony....my 2 year old 40gb works no probs, my new 250gb didnt work out of the box....way to go :thumbsdow
    Be interested to know if the other £199.99 ps3's worked

    Did the box look brand new when you unpacked it? No signs of it being a return?

    I sold my 60gb last week to a guy at work for £180. After 3 years of use it seemed too good of an offer to turn down, the only feature I made use of in that time was the SD card slot.

    Thought I could hold out for a that deal you know is going to happen in the run up to christmas, but by Saturday the withdrawal symptoms were too much so bought a 320gb Slim.

    I'd lasted less than 48 hours :facepalm:

    I probably didn't word that very well, I meant I only lasted 48 hours without a PS3.

    Planned to hold on as long as possible for the best possible deal, but needed my gaming fix.

    Game are doing the 160gb for with Medal of Honor for £249.99. Medal of Honor trades back in for £25, so thats £224.99 for a £160gb. Obviously nowhere near the Play 320gb deal that cropped up briefly, but not bad if like me you want one immediately.

    Yea but you can only use that £25 in the store.. unless you sell it to cex for £28 that will make the ps3 cost around £222 and you can use the money you saved to buy something else:thumbsup:

    To be fair, play.com are collecting 'the lemon' on thursday.
    When asked if i wanted a refund or replacement, i asked for a replacement (good deal ;) ) , expecting to be told that they're out of stock (as its not listed on their website now, at any price), but she said no problem.
    Hopefully this new one will work :rolleyes:

    EDIT
    Well after waiting over 2 weeks, and having been promised its delivery three times by play, ive now cancelled this order and got the 160gb from Sainsburys for £199...not impressed with Play.com on this issue at all

    As with most bundles from Game, Medal of Honor wasn't actually in the PS3 box, they just take the game off the shelf and scan it seperately. Perhaps she wasn't supposed to but the young girl that served me scanned the PS3 bundle and then immediately scanned a copy of Medal of Honor as part of the same purchase, so the receipt said 'PS3 Bundle £249.99', 'Medal of Honor trade in -£25.00',' total to pay £224.99'. :thumbsup:

    I'm not sure if the offer is available online, I live close to Norwich city centre so I just went for a stroll looking for the best price (I wanted it straight away). It was advertised in the window of the shop itself - 160gb slim plus Fifa11/MOH for £249.99. I asked the sales assistant if I could trade in the game to make the PS3 cheaper, she said that was fine and that MOH is worth more for trade in, so it'll be £224.99. I'm not sure if she was supposed to let me do it, but I did do the same with an Elite bundle last year in the same shop without any problems.

    You'd be better off getting the 320gb + Fifa11 or MOH + PS Move starter pack from HMV

    £285, trade fifa/MOH for £30 and Move Starter pack £33 at CEX

    £222 for 320gb, you get double the storage for same price.
