    Not that great. The 500GB is $398 at EBGames and comes with an extra controller, an essentials game (which can be God of War if you want; or something else) and your choice of Fifa 13 or Borderlands 2. Either of those two latter games would easily trade in for more than $20, so even if you didn't want them you're still better off going to EBGames.

    The 12GB price isn't bad, though.

      i question the new 12Gb

      here's a cost reduced console with NO HDD which is about the same price of the old slim that comes with a 160Gb hdd… how is that better Mr. Sony?

        Sony makes more money on it… simple :)

        Oh better for us… Mmmm

        You are paying for new design. No one is saying that the new one is of better value.

        Since when was the 'Old slim' $249 or even close to that price.

        One quick look up Big W and the 160gb PS3 is $347, that represents about $100 in savings.

  •  

    At $379 or $398 for a 500gb still ok, considering 3x more capacity, extra controller and 1 or 2 games compared to $229 160gb console only at kmart, which i bought. Hindsight is really a good thing.

    Should be cheaper than the WiiU Preminum. Reseller will price closely to 399 AUD. no update on the Sata controller is fail really.

    I expect it be smaller as well since the WiiU is 2010 tech minimum, I'm guessing the power brick is still build into it.

    Is this the one with the pop-open disc compartment? How could anyone think that would be a good idea? When I play my PS3, I want to feel like it's from this decade, not the 1990's.

    •  

      Have you seen an unboxing? Very cool, though I don't much care for the casing on the top. Not much difference in sound at all

      •  

        Yeah, I've seen a couple. It looks nice, don't get me wrong, but they were obviously trying to cut costs to compete with the cheaper Xbox 360. I doubt the new disc compartment had much to do with reducing sound :(

    Nice price on the 12gb model, good to see retailers already slashing the RRP. (which is $300)

      Errr I looked at your post…I believe it was neg'd (not by me) because…

      trading in your old 160gb ps3 + paying an extra $100
      for
      a 12GB ps3 and $70buck game

      is just plain stupid

      Wow… I post the EB Games deal on this which is much better deal and I get 7 negs… this thread has none.

      that deal is very ordinary on two fronts

      1: that title of the thread is confusing, and takes atleast 2 reads to comprehend, after which, its still not sure if it constitues a bargain imo
      2: eb games charge RRP and the way that deal has been written smacks of advertising, which explains the negs.

      EB might have the better bundle, but you still have to pay near $400 for it, or pay $200 and trade in your console that probably cost over $300, so not many will bite for that deal

  •  

    so what's stopping people buying the 12gb ps3 and drop a $100 hdd in it later? still ends up cheaper?

    •  

      Dont think you can upgrade the 12GB mate, could be wrong but I read sony are bringing out a upgrade 250GB for it

  •  

    I don't like the new bluray drive. It seems really cheap compared to the old versions and it's just obvious cutting corners.

    Of course that is far less than the blashphemy Nintendo did with the Wii. They found a way to make the Wii suck even more. At least the new PS3 doesn't make me angry.
