    hmmm thanks. I suppose it boils down to how much buying a 160gb and a bigger hdd will cost versus the 320gb at $427... Do I even need one? No. Still thinking about it? Yes. What's wrong with me?:confused:

    EDIT: JB's deal on the 320Gb is better - console, 3 games and hdmi for $449

    Yes. They are no different. Just make sure they are version 1.3 or later in compliance so they handle HD bitstreaming and 3D.

    Yep, Big W seems to be the cheapest place to buy the PS3 at the moment. Actually went there yesterday, and saw that deal as well. Seems to beat nearby competitors by a mile. :thumbup:

    Sounds like most other companies have also dropped the price to 298 to avoid having to beat the price by 5% or whatever their in store rules are. I would guess its not going to get much cheaper than that.

    Mind boggling compared to when the console was released at. Given the phat one I have here with a 40 gig drive which now appears to have a buggered blueray player, it will be easier and more cost effective to buy a new one. Sony want $200 odd dollars or was it $250 for me to drop it in (2 hour drive each way) to replace the blueray player. $48 gets me a brand new one with warranty.

    Good one Sony. This is for my son, if I had my way I would tell you to jam it.

    Harvey Norman, Game and EB all had this for $297 or thereabouts at Knox last night. I might go buy one today so my brother can have his back.
