Seen any decent PS3 offers recently?
My PS3 up and died on me on Friday night, so I'm out looking for a new one. There seems to be a distinct lack of stock in shops at the moment and online for a 320GB one, prices seem stuck about the £240 mark. (have seen one slightly cheaper at shopto.net but they are on backorder atm)
Anyone seen any decent offers on anywhere recently? Lack of stock starts to hint that either there's a shortage or a new model on the way, but having just got a load of blu-rays ordered and a couple of game sjust arrived, kinda screws things up in a way...

How did it die? YLOD?...if so, bake the mobo at 260C for half hour, then put it back and connect it all up, et voila....that fixed my brothers and he has no luck with technical items!
Failing that gamestation stores are still selling them at the £220 mark for 320gb one...Asda are around the same price.

You could look for the 160 Gb Slim version , weren't sainsburys or someone selling them for £120 or there abouts ? Then you can just upgrade the HDD if you want a larger hdd ?

Sainsbury's were selling £180 for the 160GB at the weekend when I popped in, so looks like most of the offers have finished.
It's already been repaired once so as much as I like having my original console, I'm starting to face the fact it's going to need replacing at some point soon but will take another stab at repairing it.
Otherwise I guess it's back to watching the shops.

I've got a slim 160 gb PS 3 with a few years cover left on it. Contemplating about selling it but dark siders 2 is coming out :-s

I bought a cheap second hand slim and swapped the HDD out with a much bigger one... so my machine now has lots of fun with a 500GB drive... loads of space for DLC...
I've done the same for a few friends who have bought the kit themselves...
