    www.mymemory.co.uk just had the PS3 with resistance up on their site for £299.99! It must have been a mistake as it was taken off pretty sharpish but I was wondering if anyone else got an order in before it was withdrawn?

    Before you dream about the 'what if' scenario.

    If someone did manage to order it, the company would not be obligated to sell at that price.

    Just because an order is confirmed on the website, even if money has been drawn from your account, it would not necessarily mean the company has 'accepted' your order.

    Yes i ordered one..

    Agreed that if they honoured this price it would very surprising..however, soon after ordering, i called their customer service desk who confirmed that anyone who ordered and recieved a confirmation email, WILL recieve for this price..
    How true this is - dunno! But worth a shot me thinks!

    More details on the hotukdeals website where other members have also got confirmation after calling..

    We'll see..

    Saw it (two minutes after it was posted), ordered one, upgraded to next day delivery (so they'd process it before they noticed and cancelled) and it's now showing as dispatched. For some unknown reason when I logged into my account (I was already a customer of theirs) I got an additional 10% off (forgot to go through Quidco though for another 6%). In the end, with upgraded delivery it cost £276.94 (it's difficult to see in the picture but does say £269.99):

    Well it would be rather great if they do honour it! I was hovering around the £359 shopto offer over the weekend but just couldn't bring myself to pay that however £300 with resistance was too good to turn down! I went for next day delivery but mine is still pending

    We shall see....

    Mine is still showing pending also...Although i didn't opt for next day..
    I'm off to the States on business over the weekend so if this doesn't work, then i'll try and source a 20GB model out there..With the excellent exchange rates it would be silly not to!

    That is really rather amazing!! I get the feeling if we are successful that resistance might not make it with the console but still, £300 is far too good to gripe about

    Did you both get the confirmation email? If so then it is looking like they'll honor it. I'll believe it when I see it though.

    Not sure if im allowed to post a link to another forum but i have come across one that reported the same offer, however when one of the forum members rang up they were informed that they are only the 20gb models, and have now sold out, whether its true or not is anyones guess

    But the 20GB models:

    a) haven't been officially released over here

    and

    b) have been discontinued by Sony...

    They have only been discontinued in the US and not in Japan. That doesn't mean there still isn't existing US stock floating around. Having said that I would be surprised if a company like them would be selling import stock.

    Apparently the company in question has posted on the official PS3 forum and said that they will honour all orders placed for the console at £299 and that it is the 60GB UK PAL machine. Its claimed they bought them off of another retailer who was looking to get rid of some. This all remains to be seen of course but if it turns up and my bank statement says £299 I'll let you know

    I think I managed to get my order in before 1p.m. so mine should be with me tomorrow. I'll let you know if it appears.

    EDIT: The OP who posted the bargain on another forum got his first thing this morning. He said it was indeed a UK PS3 and did come with RFOM as well! Starting to get excited now. Expect to see it in the 'Get your PS3s out for the lads' thread very soon!

    Ok update - was in pending state, now showing as dispatched..

    For those who paid extra for next day delivery, i think they'll all arrive together...Can't see them sending such an expensive item through normal channels..I'll bet they do what amazon do (as with the wii's) and send all via next day!

    They have charged me the £303 (incl delivery), so if a new 60GB UK console + Resistance turn up tomorrow - This will probably be the deal of the year (for gaming that is)!

    Also tracking on quidco..should be £284 all in..

    Mine has just arrived. Paid for next day delivery (got the order in before 1p.m.) but forgot the quidco link. Did get 10% off that automatically added to my account (was already a customer) so paid £276.94 in the end. It is a UK 60Gb console and it does come with RFOM.
