    Swines! They waited a month so that people couldn't get £25 back if they got a release day one.

    I got my PS3 on launch day, I saw the reduction this morning (I have been waiting for this to happen) and thought bugger it's over 30 days but worth a go. I did the refund thing and got the email with the £25 refund then later today got another email confirming processing of refund.
    Having said all this I do know people who got a launch day one and did the refund thing later in the day to be told no.

    I got mine on launch day too. Just fired off an email to Amazon. Also mentioned that they now offer the PS3 with a free HDMI cable ;) so I'm gonna see what they say.

    I did say I wanted to purchase some more stuff from Amazon so they might just offer me a discount on my next purchase (can put that towards a new game) and send a free HDMI cable.:rotfl:

    Very clever by amazon. Surely this points to the fact that retailers are just not happy with the £425 price point.

    Thank you for contacting Amazon.co.uk.

    The discounts we offer for items on our website do vary from time to
    time. I've checked your order # and found that we
    now offer a greater discount on "Sony PlayStation 3 Console (60GB
    Premium Version)" than at the time you placed your order.

    Please accept our apologies, but we are not able to adjust the price
    of an order in instances where more than thirty days have passed
    between the date on which an order was dispatched and the time that
    an item is reduced in price on our site.

    Again, I am sorry for any disappointment that this may cause. Thank
    you for shopping at Amazon.co.uk.

    Unfortunately not Funky, they adjusted the price 31 days after the launch. I was checking this on a semi regular basis as I was hoping they'd slip up and change it too early.

    On the plus side I did manage to get £10 back on each game I got with my PS3, even though they allowed £5 off each game if you bought the console, so in theory my games cost me £24.99 each, or my console cost £394.99. One of the two anyhow :)

    Guys, do you want to know how much my Toshiba LCD TV has reduced in price since I bought it in November????? Over £100. And I got it for probably £400 cheaper than the guy who bought it 6 months earlier.

    That's life folks! The PS3 will probably be £350 by Christmas. You pays your earlier adopter dollars, you pays the price!

    Yes, but we are talking about a price drop literally 30 days after purchase. Play.com are offering £25 refunds so why not Amazon.:confused:

    Play.com are very very generous. Retailers can reduce a price at any time; it's their discretion and your tough luck!

    It would be a different story if you were talking about a John Lewis price match.
