2. HN - $499 + free game

3. Game - $479 flat

any opinions?
(Mine is to wait another week or so)

HN deal is the best so far. Someone has even mentioned that you can select ANY game, but best to check with the actual store.

Still waiting so see what Toy'R'Us and the department stores will do. Big W and Kmart may be even cheaper.

Yup, I would wait and if nothing better comes along, grab the HN deal!

I copied and pasted a post from Whirlpool:

Here in NZ, for $490 AU you get KZ2 + Resistance 2 or the PS3 Remote.[url="http://www.gamesman.co.nz/product.php?id=10800"]http://www.gamesman.co.nz/product.php?id=10800[/url][url="http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/games-gaming/playstation-3-ps3/playstation-3-consoles-ps3/playstation-3-ps3slimbrm-120gb-slim-blu-ray-remote/prod106091.html"]http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/games-gaming/...prod106091.html[/url]

I'd be interested in upgrading my 40G PS3 I got in the Sony TV promo.

EB usually runs some kind of swap.

If the swap isn't too good, I may just hold on to the old one. The kids can use it on the old CRT.

$130 for 500G HD. Looks like PlayTV is ready to rock & roll.

You can add Dick Smith - $499 flat (not that I consider that a "deal").

I just heard of a new Dick Smith deal.

$499 for PS3 Slim + Resistance 2 OR Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Great deal if you wanted these two games. Beats the HN deal now.

^Updated with actual deal.

true. Best at the moment, but i m sure they will all start to better each other or at least match until the last moment.

Already have assurance from my local Myer guy that he will match whatever deal there is and even better it. I m definitely going to him.

Was just at HN at QV. Originally the guy said any game under $70, but later said I could get Infamous if I wanted. Extra 4 years warranty was $79 (normally $99) and 10% off accessories (extra controller etc).

How does the warranty work?

What games would ppl get just to maximise value?

why would you buy games to 'maximise value'? I buy games to play them, not brag on the internet about how much money i saved.

just thinking about resale value. altho if it is being given free, there will b a lot flooding the market, which would bring down the resale value

Doh! Just found out the deal is actually:

$499 for PS3 Slim with Resistance 2 OR Batman: Arkham Asylum.

So this or HN deal are the same.

Has anyone been able to get this confirmed with DSE? The website still says $499 flat and I just went in to the Swanston St store and the guy knew nothing about it. He wouldn't even try to match HN's offer, told me that he couldn't do anything until they were released and if I could pre-order somewhere else "it was probably a good idea to go with them".

Just saw this on the Whirlpool forum:

http://www.fishpond....CFRUwpAod2iSnuA

$449.97 for the unit, no game, including delivery. Good for those who don't care about getting a free game or HDMI cable.

If past experience is anything to go by, Fishpond should be avoided.
