Discounted PS3 Even Cheaper At Big W, Overpriced Elsewhere

Sony dropped the price of the PS3 console last week, but discounts on those discounted prices have already started to appear. From today until August 30, Big W is selling the 160GB model for $298, which is $50 lower than the ‘official’ reduced $349.95 price.

I couldn’t spot any similar comparable deals in a quick search online, and indeed it’s notable how many online stores haven’t yet updated their pricing to reflect Sony’s reductions, and still have the 160GB model for $500 or more. That said, the worst deal is Grays Online, which is selling a refurbished PS3 with a 40GB hard drive for $299.95 — more than Big W is charging for a new model with four times the capacity. The lesson, as usual, is to shop around carefully before buying.
