Is this a good deal?

6 replies 108 views Edited Dec 8, 2012

I'm thinking about getting a ps3 since it's been awhile since my old fat broke and I saw this on amazon.

What do you guys think? I also am interested in this bundle right here.

I like this one solely because it comes with the old slim which I think looks a lot less cheap, plus I don't want to hear the loud disc reading on the new slim. What one would you guys recommend?

Sony has made many store specific bundles this year. Each of them cost $300 and come with 250GB superslim PS3s.

Walmart: LBP Kart racing + Move & Move Steering controller
Target: Epic Mickey 2 + Move bundle
Best Buy: God of War Saga & Metal of Honor Warfighter
Toys R Us: Need for Speed Most Wanted & Burnout Paradise

Comes with 250g super slim, and 5 games. 4 on cd and 1 downloadable. It was $200 on black friday, but people bought them to sell them for more money. It was on Newegg for a while for $230 with free shipping, but those sold out. $250 with a few bucks for shipping aint bad though. Especially when it comes with 5 games.

To me it looks like a rip off cause i just bought one of them before the 4.10 patch.  I thought it was broke about the time i started playing Infamous 1 on it.  I blamed it on the patch but i got a refurb back from sony and Infamous one still locks up the system and only gives the option of pulling plug.  I know i got the older versions of the game not the new fancy collections.

 

Anyhow it dont look like a bargain to me.  You take a chance on one, if you like?

Its whatever God says it is, try not to let Satan trick you or lie to you. A lie can be twisted so much but its still a lie, same with tricks. Also know noone is perfect except Jesus, we all will mess up from time to time. So try not to be, to hard on yourself or others.

I actually haven't even played the bundled games. I got the bundle and Black Ops 2. It's been a while since I've had an up to date COD. And I wanted a new PS3 instead of my cechlo1 which is insanly loud. So far on Black Ops 2 no complaints. I've downloaded all of my previous purchases, played a 3D movie (streamed on dsl with no hickups) and had no prolems, knock on wood. I'd hate to know it was a waste of money. But it doesn't get hot. Only complaint is the cd reading is quite loud when there is no sound from the tv but once the sound of a game starts you don't hear the cd reading.

I think really though it comes down to this.. you can either spend $299 on a superslim with a bundled game with a limited selection, or you can pay $250 for a superslim and get 5 games plus have $50 left over to choose whatever new game you want, brining your total to 6 games for the same $299 price. Good deal imo.

And why should we take anything you say seriously?
