It's interesting, now, to look back on the PS3's troubled first year. People complained that it had no games (a criticism only the criminally insane would dare make nowadays), that Blu-ray wasn't a proven format (which has since been proved
) and that the price was too high. Now, however, Play.com have dropped the 40GB PS3 to its lowest price ever, beating out the competition by £70. You can head on over to the site right now
and pick one up for only £230. That includes free shipping. Bargain!
It's worth noting that the Xbox 360 Elite currently costs £250 on the same site, so there's no contest between which is the better deal. We expect people to jump at this price, so if you're on the fence (and a UK resident) now might be the perfect time to re-evaluate a purchase.[Update]
Looks like this was a mistake! Play.com has updated the price to £289.99. Looks like it really was
too good to be true.
