    I think it was a price error. It was 30% off of 30% off.

    Here's the screenshot of the page if anyone wants to load it up on their phone and walk in store and see if you can get it. I'll just say "I missed out..."

    Has anyone been paying attention in previous years to have an opinion as to whether it's likely that there will be a "better bundle" price between now and the end of June?

    EB is doing PS4 Pro + 3 games + remote for $379 when you trade in your old 500GB PS4 + 1 game.

    That sounds like a good deal to me. Is it?

    PS4 is worth $180-$200 usually (used)

    So you're looking at $579 in approx total value + the games which may or may not be worthless

    So according to this price page you're paying about $20 for convenience at worst... Seems okay if you really want a ps4 pro..

    I don’t really want one or need one, don’t have a 4k TV. It’s just that I got one of the older PS4 models with the crappy wifi and low storage. Feel like its good time to upgrade.

    Putting a bigger HDD in it is cheaper than $500, if your wifi issue is download speed, psn is just slow.

    I don’t know. The way I see it is I’m getting a better console new for $379. Which is way less than what I paid for the original. Maybe I’m the kind of sucker that keeps EB in business lol

    You're not getting it for $379 though, because you're voiding $200 worth of assets at the same time. Advertising works I guess?

    It's a bit like any trade-in deal. If you don't want to/can't be bothered selling your old one yourself, or it's pretty average in condition, then it may be worth it, but if it's the moolah you're interested in, you can often do better selling the old one and putting it towards another deal.

    Any word on current bundles Broc?

    Jbhifi seemed to have the best pro bundle last week (inc 3 games + remote) but the website has changed now and it doesnt include any games and is $30 cheaper.

    EB one seems to have rubbish games but is the only 'bundle' i can see atm.

    I've stopped looking, I got a PS4 secondhand from cash converters. I did ask the boy at eb games about the deals, and he said they have to ask Sony to let them sell a bundle. That's why they change about. I suppose they just attract different people with different deals - some want games, some want the extra hardware. You just have to keep looking and grab when you like the look of it, I suppose.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there's a decent deal next week, but I've no real reason to think so, just EOFY "stuff".

    I think the trade in is 2 games now + old ps4 from eb unless im not mistaken. Only thing is I have mortal kombat to swap in. Might have to buy a cheap game in store.

    I cant remember which was the original hdmi cable or usb charge cable. anyone have any experience if eb strict?
