I've been teetering on the brink for a little while and now I'm gonna go for it...better price, smaller and less thirsty.

Not everyone seems to have their prices organised yet but this is what we have so far:

From PriceSpy:

Play Tech: $598
Noel Leeming: $598 Includes Blu Ray Remote
Bond+Bond: $598 Includes a game

DSE seemed to have the best price for the old ones but haven't got an advertised price yet for the new one: verbally a shop assistant mentioned $629 but maybe DSE are hanging back to see what happens..

Also: Does the "Mini Remote" work for playing BluRay discs?

Does anyone know where the prices are going to go after the "Introductory Offer" is over?

i really doubt there'll be a discount on release - firstly it's a sony, secondly it's already 'discounted' compared to the old model, thirdly ... umm ... but, you just never know! someone MIGHT just discount a few dollars off it on pricespy




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

just looking on the bond and bond site, the pics for console and game also have the what looks like the blu-ray remote. but no mention of it in the items?
so have they just used the standard ps3 pic and added a game, or is it bundled? anyone got info of this?

keep in mind it is $299 usd...
converted into nz dollars is $440 with the current exchange rate at 0.68ish

so why $629? even if it is shipping $629-$440 it's $189....
$189 just to ship to new zealand? wtf?

OZ pricing is $499 AUD, at 0.80 that is just under $625 NZ, so our pricing is not that much out of line with them.

THanks for that man :) I just got the little big planet deal and ghostbusters, because I already had killzone 2 from my second playstation.



Hell yeah, time to get rid of my Xbox, too loud in my bedroom, have to try dual playstation LANing now :) oh yeah

Oh crap, forgot about JB and DSE

Apparently JB has the stadnard 598 preorder deal on at the moment till the 3rd.
Youl could always print out a copy of gamesmans advert and barter them down though

Dick Smiths though, well $629 at the moment, no free games and when you click it, it comes up as sold out


Must admit though, powering down the 360 and hearing it's fans spin down and stop vibrating the table for the last time has made me a bit sad :( RIP Xbox RIP I will miss you....till the Slim comes out in 2010 and hopefully Project natal

If you do a search for PS3 it'll show up, but when you click it :( apparentyl not on sale or sold out....not sure why they aren't preordering yet.  You can add it to your cart though :)
