PS3 price, cheapest Playstation 3

Cheapest PS3 - You can now pick a Playstation 3 for a staggering £225 with free delivery,
We didn’t see much of a Playstation 3 price drop in December 2008, but now the new year has hit the price has really started to plummet. As history teaches us, Sony have always been extremely reserved about when they drop their prices and under no circumstances reveal their plans to enthusiastic journalists (even if the interviewee knows about the price drop).

Visit Cheapest PS3 deal
Including Free delivery, Play.com have the current cheapest PS3 for sale. Don’t worry about the 40Gb Hard drive, you can always swap out the drive (easily) at a later date, for any 2.5in laptop hard drive. Western Digital and Samsung make some of the best hard drives - if your planning on buying Play TV (very very good btw) a larger hard drive is recommended - you can get a 320Gb Western Digital drive at around 40 GBP.
If that is still too much, then why not consider 2nd hand from CEX, still has 12 months warranty but for a staggering 220 GBP!!!

America has already seen a PS3 price drop in early October 2008, and it is never long before the ripples reach UK shores.

Price is as important as ever for consumers and it is particularly so this christmas 2008, with the planet in economic meltdown, when you consider a price drop on the only Hi-definition movie and games machine on the market, ears begin to twitch in Lapland.

This is especially so when the Playstations closest rival the Xbox 360 has recently had its base model reduced to just £130, Sony are under increasing pressure to level up the playing field.

As prices are at the moment, when you place the PS3 and XBOX 360 side by side at the checkout, customers have two numbers to consider; £130 (xbox 360) versus £300 (PS3) - for some this is a none starter and the xbox wins hands down…

However, the machines you get for those prices are vastly different. The xbox has no hard drive, doesn’t play high definition films and doesn’t have a great reliability record; whereas the PS3 has a hard drive, plays the latest blu-ray movies and a fantastic reliability record, the choice becomes more difficult.

PS3 window of opportunity

As described, more and more consumers are interested in high definition media, and the PS3 supplies this with its Blu-ray player but there will become a point where a standalone Blu-ray player + Xbox 360 will be cheaper than the PS3.

So what can we expect this christmas?
, A slight shift in price is expected, and there will most certainly be beefed up package deals available; so don’t jump out and buy a PS3 today, the advice is to wait at least to mid / late November… but if you can’t wait that long then why not try a 2nd hand one with 12mths warranty.

2nd hand PS3 with 12 months warranty

Playstation 3 £255 now £220 including 12 months warranty

Why buy brand new? There are plenty of 2nd hand PS3’s with 12 months warranty; if you have another console to trade in, for example a Nintendo Wii with a trade in price £112, the prospect becomes a lot more appetizing.
