I might stop by another store on the way home. Sometimes if you can get hold of one of the managers and you have cash/credit in hand, you might be able to work something out. i think the $299 price for the 320GB plus move, plus sport champion would be a comparable product to substitute. We shall see.

Apologies if this is not the right place, but I am looking for thoughts on the best deal...

My OG 60 Phat died last month (YLOD) and Sony currently offers 2 options: (i) $129 repair or replacement with 60 gb Phat, or (ii) $99 replacement with refurb/remanufactured 160 gb slim.

Other option[s] are to go retail and replace it with a brand new unit. I posted about and tried to pick up the Target Move bundle they advertised last week ($299 plus $75 Traget gift card), but it was not in stock anywhere near me.

What other options are there that I'm not aware of/considering and has anyone gone with either of Sony's replacement options lately and have any advice?

fixing the phat to me is a waste of money, it's just going to fail again. The blu-ray drive goes bad or the YLOD happens.. it's a ticking time bomb. A refurbed slim for $99 isn't a bad deal... my refurbed slim is going on 23 months thus far (knock on wood). the only downside is the 90 day warranty vs. the one year you get with a new unit. that and the 2 week turn around time for the swap process to complete.

What are the chances we will see a $200 ps3 deal or $250 with a $50 gift card again

Rayman Origins is a near-perfect local co-op title to enjoy with kids or casuals. It even has incentives to complete extra challenges for the hardcore. This game is highly recommended for at least $40, but at $20 it is the best post-Christmas bargain you'll find in gaming.
post #669 of 893
Just got an email saying that my Rayman purchase at Toys r Us for $19.99 has been cancelled. Do you guys think following up on this is worth it, or do I have no chance at actually getting the game at this price as it was advertised. How can companies do this and get away with it?

Introducing PlayStation Network’s “12 for ‘12” PS3 Game Sale

Twisted Metal for PS3 - $47.99 with free shipping with promo code EMCYTZT1088

Considering new copies come with a voucher to download Twisted Metal Black and the online pass, it's sort of a tempting deal.

it is strange to see the xbox have a sale of some sort so often. when was the last ps3 sale? black friday?
post #678 of 893
That's the last time I saw any PS3 promotions. Good way to keep sales going for MS.

There "was" the Target bundle deal I posted about a few weeks ago, but that was virtually non-existent as it was out of stock and expressly not subject to rainchecks, etc.

I'm sure another deal will come out soon since I finally pulled the trigger and went with Sony' $99 trade-in to replace my YLOD Phat 60 with a refub'd slim. (That makes alot of noise ejecting discs I might add...but after spending hours recreating accounts and re-downloading content, I'm not so anxious to arrange a replacement, will need to re-evaluate in 80 days...)

I did see a new (to me) Mayhem bundle at Best Buy yesterday. R3 + KZ3 + Sharpshooter + Move/Nav/Eye for $99. Funny that the same store also had the R3 Doomsday package priced at $149.99, which is the same bundle MINUS KZ3!

I got the 007 Goldeneye bundle with Sharpshooter for $99 back before Christmas, and I wish this had been out then, so at least I would've gotten two games I want out of the deal. In actuality, I don't think even this deal is worth it, as the SharpShooter just sort of sucks (Actually, I guess it's a better deal than any other Move bundle for $99 if you want Move....) Even after giving time to get used to it, the coolness factor wears off fast, your arms get tired quick. We don't use it anymore. Sports Champions makes better use of the Move then the Sharpshooter games. KZ3 did seem to have the best implementation of the Sharpshooter though. I predict the SS will be a useless piece of plastic littering your living room within 3 weeks though, if not after the first night.

you are a couple months late, there were a few black friday deals (in store and online) that had the slim at $200.
post #683 of 893
Yea i know

Im not looking for a $200 deal thats not gonna happen , at this point ill take anything other than $249.99
post #684 of 893
I guess that means the PS3 is still selling well. I never was able to find that Target bundle until after the special was over. I couldn't get Best Buy to work with me either on putting together a "similar" package. I was expecting other stores to do something similar on their own, but nada.

As mentioned a few threads above, there seem to be decent 360 deals here and there, but it's been dry on the PS3 front for what seems like a while now. I just checked Amazon, and the 320 Gb was $289 = $10 off. At this point, there might not be any movement in price until the next big industry show...E3 or something.
post #685 of 893
Anyone seen any bundle deals (with TV, Sony's 3d monitor, PS Vita) since there don't seem to be any decent PS3 deals?

I'll be interested to hear what kind of shape it's in.

Gamestop is having a deal right now for trading in a used PS3 you can get an extra $40 trade-in credit.

Helps drop the price for upgrading to a newer or larger PS3 model.
post #689 of 893
Yeah, but unfortunately GameStop won't let you transfer data from your old PS3 to the new one.

I went to the store where I do all my pre-orders etc. They let me set them both up on their back counter, let it run through the transfer while I walked down to Friendly's to grab some lunch. I brought them back some ice cream as a "Thank You".
