Playstation 3 160 GB $250.00 brand new

9 replies 172 views Edited Jan 16, 2013

Just $250.00 at BestBuy.com for the base system.  Now might be a good time to pick one up.  I think another price drop will occur by the end of the year - bringing it down to $220.  Thus explaining the boost in sales that has occurred.  Microsoft and Nintendo are slowly being phased out of the console market once again.  Both the casual market, and the new next-gen market that was created by the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

I'd be waiting until E3 until I buy a PS3.

The $250 PS3s at Best Buy are for the old slim systems that have been discontinued. It may drop in price again, but most likely it will just sell out since Best Buy is just trying to clear out inventory...

 

Apparently Best Buy is clearencing them out for $150 now, so it certainly won't last very long.

Back when I bought the super slim, that was the standard price.  I don't see why it's important to bring it up now.

Pretty much this.  Your  Nintendo nagging and pushing of Sony (like in this thread) is rather annoying.  

The PS3 has been $250 for a long time now.  You are telling people to pick one up as if this is some crazy price reduction for a limited time.  Better deals and bundles are right around the corner I bet ya.

A Best Buy in Texas had them for only $150.00.

Wow.  Last night said that better deals and bundles were right around the corner, and look what gets confirmation today:

http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/17/playstation-3-classic-white-january-27/

 

500GB PS3, and a full year of PS Plus for $299.99.  Better than $250 for the 160GB Model,

but still nothing worth running to the store for in impulse.

Oh - I see.  Only a handful of stores have that $150 deal, maybe 10.
