Im thinking about giving my son my Phat PS3 (with 160GB HDD) and getting myself a Slim (120GB).

Does anyone know of any sites/stores in the UK doing any good deals at the moment?

Did a mini research around last Christmas for my friend, apparently most of them sell for more or less the same amount: £250 + maybe a game or so. Shop around, it may bring you maybe £10-20 in savings and I think that's just about it.

Cool. Even if I could get one with a game thrown in that I already have it would be a bonus.

Game: £260 Slim and Just Cause 2
His Master's Voice: £280 Uncharted 2
Gamestation: PS3 I am Legend pack (don't know what this is but it being £220 suggests it is a console, 80 GB HDD)
Just the PS3 slim £250
Console and MW2 £260
Sod it, just look at the link yourself

That last one's got a branch down the street, good company in my experience.

Thanks for the research m8 :)

I think the I Am Legend pack will ba phat PS3 because it has an 80GB HDD.

Not to intrude the thread, but I was wondering the same within the US? Didn't know if anyone knows any deals going on. Just PM me so we don't clog the thread.

(Sorry, didn't want to make two threads on the same topic!)

Goodluck on your search :D
