Actually, there was an internal memo from Best Buy coporate that they will MATCH walmart ps3 with gift card.

- Response to Wal-mart’s $100 Blu-ray Gift Card with Purchase of PS3 System
In their June 1 circular, Wal-mart is offering a $100 Blu-ray gift card with the purchase of a Playstation 3 40GB hardware system. In an effort to serve customers, Best Buy has activated a value package that can be hand- keyed into the register to generate a $100 instant gift card. This value package should only be used on a case-by- case basis at the customer’s request.
Like any other product in our price matching policy, the product must be available for us to match this offer. If a customer requests us to match this offer, simply hand-key the valued customer SKU 6867688 with the scanned PS3 hardware system. The value packaging system will automatically run and generate a request for a $100 Best Buy gift card.
Note: This offer is only valid from June 1 - June 7 or until Wal-mart stock level has been depleted. Our Competitive Team will conduct national shops at select Wal-mart locations. Once their stock levels have been depleted, Best Buy will terminate the value package early and will no longer match the offer. Communication will be posted via Employee News If that occurs. Whenever possible, do not apply the offer to previous purchases. There may be customers who have previously purchased a PS3 system and are within the normal return/exchange period for the product who want the matched offer. This should be handled on a case-by-case basis only. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Customers who have purchased, or want to purchase, a PS3 system as part of the HO Advantage offer cannot receive this $100 gift card offer. Customers have their choice of any other offer or this $100 gift card offer - not both.
