It depends. I was never in the hunt/waiting game for a 4K TV until Nov/Dec last year. I'm loving my UA55ES6600 and has served me well for nearly 4 years, along with my current set up. It wasn't value either when I bought it, I forked out 2K for it, it was my first screen. After I build my house and got my gigabit network and PLEX server set up, I've loved every single minute with it. I'm ready for 4K now though. My movies are around 8GB 1080 6 channel DTS mkv files, so I'm not sure whether my server will like 4k compressed movies...

PS4 won't play EAC3 or DTS audio in the media player anyway.

First PS4 Pro deal laddies, but unfortunately for me not the games I want. I'll check though if they are able to change the games but I doubt it.

Same, I went to JB and the staff said they would price match it. I traded in 2 games and it dropped to $489.50.

Not bad honestly. I traded in watch dogs 2 since I finished it on PC and dead rising 4 because I couldn't bring myself to even finish it. Those games got me a $69.50 trade in value.

I asked if you could switch games out for another of equal value and you can't since you're not price matching the same deal anymore. No biggie really cos I'm just gonna trade them in anyway.

Interestingly enough the trade in value for all three games was less than the two i traded in when buying the bundle. all three games totalled at $67 and that means i ended up spending only $422.50 for the console.

not bad really.

bonus: sold my US PS4 and that'll drop it to about $222.50 but gonna save it for something else *cough*4K TV*cough*

Yeah pretty good deal. Been too busy this weekend so didn't go through with it. I would have traded it in only for an extra controller + $20ish extra. With the new titles out this year there is bound to be a good deal when they come out. When I got my PS3 I got a BF4 bundle with the game and a second co triller which was army camouflage skin/colour.

Mixed reports on ozb website comments, one said EB doesn't price match. I'm also keen to get a headset + mic. Anyone here play sport multiplayer games? I'd be keen on soccer and basketball and trash talking.
