Just when you thought the deals couldn't get any better! I love Ozbargain. :)
But yeah I was planning to buy the PS3 160GB deal at Big W (with choice of game from Uncharted 2, LBP2, Grand Turismo 5 or Motorstorm Apocalpyse), but after seeing this one…
Yea 20$ for a game from that list does not sound bad at all plus you can use discounted woolies card at BigW too.
bigw always do price match
not on bundles
Well I'm waiting for the PS4 to come out so the PS2 prices drop even further.
keep waiting…. for another 2 years
Even cheaper than amazon. Nice
The other deal is better, it includes a game for $249(its platinum, but still worth more then $20 sealed).

Releases same day, direct competition.
true but you may not like the games offered. I would like to have the choice to buy my games without being restricted to 4-5 choices.
If you're like me and looking for a second PS3 because it's just that cheap, you don't even need a game! lol
what a f**king coincidence..I am and my PS3 is only 2 weeks old :D
2nd PS3?? 2 weeks??
I thought I was on OzBargain :P
On a serious note, why? You don't expect it to last long?
giving the "old" one to my brother and he's moving overseas.
you no, if you got that and got either uncharted 2 or Gran turismo 5, you could buy a ps plus sub for $70 for 1 year and get Little big planet 2 and motorstorm as well, plus about 4 or 5 other games free so far plus more to be added
keep em down to the max!!
Heck yea, perfect time to get a xbox, that 360 with a 320gb hdd will do just fine
I dont get it Xbox????
There's an XBox bundle for sale during the same sale:
XBox "324GB mega bundle": $299
^Includes a 4GB console, 320GB HDD, Lego Star Wars 3 download code, Kinect, Kinect Adventures\Sports, 3 months Gold sub card.
Yeps, and with halo 4 coming out soon its time to get a new one, i already got a ps3, but i need xbxo for halo 4 and other xbox exclusives (PS3 is better, but pc kicks them all)
Ok so the Xbox is a better deal or the Ps3??
Also does the Xbox play 3d and is the play station 3d player function region locked???
Noob questions sorry.
Everything on the xbox is region locked, dvd's and stuff, ps3 is only partly region locked, can play 3d blu-rays or standard blu-rays or even games from any region, although still region locked on dvds, the ps3 is a better deal in my opinion (Blu-ray drive, 3d blu-rays, free online play, or if u pay $70 for ps plus you get motorstorm, little big planet 2, warhamer 40k, infamous 2) but depends what games u want, halo/gears of war(xbox) or Uncharted/little big planet(ps3), do some research on the games u like and what console they are on
I have an Xbox 360 (60gb pro) and I can say this honestly: get the PS3. 4 years ago, when I got it, the Xbox 360 had a far superior library of exclusive titles, quantity of titles and quality of titles, but now, it's just been completely overtaken by the PS3. I love Halo and Gears but I'm heaps envious of all the exclusives the PS3 seems to keep getting non-stop (I'm looking at you Uncharted, God of War, Last of Us (GRRRR!)). Although, I must say, because we're so late into the development cycle of this generation there are heaps of third-party games to choose from, so it's not as big a loss to choose one console over another as it used to be.
Although, if you're into shooters, which I mainly am, get the Xbox. The controller is hands down the best for shooters (and pretty much any genre except fighters IMHO) and that's what the console excels at.
And no, the Xbox 360 doesn't do 3D as far as I'm aware.
xbox does do 3d, if u get green lantern for the 360 it has 3d features, also 3d setting are in the latest dashboard update, supposedly batman arkum city does it aswell, maybe u could stream a 3d mkv via tversity or windows media centre with a plug in
Ok, fair enough, I stand corrected. I never tried seeing as I don't have any 3D glasses for my tv.
Also XBOX 360 does not have DTS (Dobly Surround) capabilities. XBOX online experience is far superior than the PS3 and thats why I'm an XBOX boy, even though I have both.
That was the wrong link…
I need a blu ray dvd player and thinking of getting the ps3…how big is the box? i'm going overseas on 2/7 so can claim gst.
You can't. Its under 300. Sorry bud
unless he buys other things in the same transaction! correct me if i'm wrong
he has many things to chose from. $70 to spend on games/controller/move bundle/playtv
Incorrect, maogua. All that is needed is a single itemised receipt from an Australian retailer that totals at least $300. So you could have buy 1 x $300 item or 10 x $30 items. As long as it is in one transaction.
Johnno is correct, as long as the item's that help reach a total above the value of $300 are all exported.
But last time when I bought my ipad with the camera connector on one single receipt, I only got the ipad gst refunded not the camera connector. That was two years ago, have they changed the rule lately? Just curious…
Did you show the camera connector when you claimed it? You can claim multiple items on the one receipt but you must show them all, and if its something small and not obvious, highlight it to the agent.
How lucky u guys are. i already have an xbox and 2 PS3's. :( what do i get to satisfy my ozbargainitis?
The most first world problem I have ever seen.
You need to buy a gf when she is on clearance price lol
hmmm the existing one might have a few issues with that
I don't think your hand will mind ;)
base on my experience this would not survive the ozbargainer effect
God give me strength not to buy a PS3.
Buy a ps3 you wont regret it, buy a ps plus sub for $70 for 1 year and get a bunch of free games like Infamous 2, little big planet 2, warhammer 40k, motorstorm apocalypes, and a few others
Sounds good. Are these games physical or digital copies?
Digital copies (downloaded to PS3) that you can access as long as you are still subscribed. They release new ones every few months.
Ahh, thnx. It sounds like a rental service due to the fact that you don't have perpetual ownership of the games, as you say. Not really my thing.
can someone advise me what I should get PSP for $98 at BigW or PS3 for $229, I am very tempted both of them. Thanks
PS3 hands down - unless you want to get the PS Vita.
nice! i rang up Kmart and they said it started tomorrow! 21st! Im a pc gamer but getting it specifically for those exclusive games… Uncharted, God of War, Gran Turismo and the Last of Us. And will definitly pick up some old Ps2 HD classics! price dosent get any better !
Last of Us looks really good. Can't wait for it to come out
Does it start TOMORROW IN-STORE?
Can someone confirm the commencement date? staff members get their words wrong and well, make mistakes sometimes :P
The Big W deal is a better one for you (works out to $19 for GT5 or Uncharted 2) and is on now.
This PS3 won't play PS2 discs AFAIK. Unless you are talking about PSN versions??
Are the PS3's likely to sell out with a sale like this?
I anticipate large stock shortages.
@Gabrielkipp 77: Did you ring about it starting online or in-store?
Sorry i didnt ask. The clerk just said tomorrow
Deal of the week boys! Better get off that chair or you'll miss out!
This is a great deal, gonna buy it :D
I saw another xbox 360 deal with kinect for $248 so i'm thinking of getting one console. Can you guys give some advices whether i should choose xbox 360+ kinect bundle or this deal ps3? Many thanks:D
Called two stores in VIC. They said the deal starts on 28th of June. Is it suppose to be today or the 28th?
this deal starts on the 28th, as stated in the description.
there are multiple deals on at the moment with different online/retail shop commencement dates.
That price.. I literally said HOLYFFFFINGSHHHHTTT.
Target a better deal! U get an extra game and a mount for the kinect for an extra $39!!!
kmart only allows me to add to christmas layby list:-? how can i put it to the shopping bag
Hi guys, what time does the sale start on the 28th? If I go to burwood Kmart 24/7 will the sale start at midnight? Thanks waiting for your reply :)
I'm not a rep. Call them.
Ok mate thanks for the quick reply I will call them tomorrow and let you know what they said.
how did you go?
Hi guys, I just finished talking to a rep, he said it starts at 8am but you must be quick mate, who is interested in buying one? Please reply to my comment I want to know my odds of picking one up :)
If you don't already have GT5 or Uncharted 2, the $248 Big W deal is an OK consolation prize if Kmart sell out. Picked mine up from QV Melbourne on Saturday. That deal might have already increased your chances of Kmart stock since it's been on since Thursday and is actually better value for those that are interested in one of those games.
Yeah I think I'm better going with the BIG W bundle now I am going to choose GT5 what game did you choose?
I went Uncharted 2 because the original catalogue that Big W had online for this sale had GT5 for $25 as well so I thought I'd bundle Uncharted and then buy GT5. Now the new Big W catalogue doesn't have the $25 deal but has a 2 for $38 sale with titles varying from store to store. I'm going down to Big W on Thursday to see if GT5 turns up as part of that deal there. It's $28 at EB Games now so I have a backup plan anyway ;)
Sweet as mate, Should I pick up the PS3 from kmart for $229 and then do the BIGW 2 for $38 deal? what do you think mate? or is uncharted 2 a brilliant game?
Big W 2-for-$38 deal could be hit and miss. Some stores might have lots of good games while others have crap. You can't really lose though, as I said GT5 is now $28 at EB Games and if you can wait a week or two for delivery Uncharted 2 is around $22 delivered from dvd.do.uk (or part of their 2 for £25 deal, Red Dead Redemption too which is cool). Lots of bargains right now.
I have found on a few occasions that somethings that are sold out at the start of a sale at Kmart are sometimes restocked towards the end of the sale, eg. thumb drive that was sold out everywhere but got restocked 2 days before sale finished.
who is going tonight?
Ps: good luck ;))..
hahahah wooohooo kyle thanks for the reply,
which kmart in melbourne are you going to?
your kmart opens at midnight?
8am but Kyle D opens at midnight
Ok guys I just purchased the ps3. Apparently some items were scanning in at sale prices already. There are none left at Hornsby. But a shipment is supposed to coming in the next few hours. Chatswood has about 5. They open at 6am
Good luck and God speed
24 hour Kmart anyone? LOL
Are the kmarts any good in the eastern states? In SA the stores are very "dated" and prices are always way more expensive than target + bigw, at all times.
