I suppose you could find a PS3 for less than MSRP but you'd have to hunt. Certainly not Target or Best Buy. Often those places will toss in a BD or 2 or a controller but that junk isn't necessary.

It's best to take the low price and use the savings to buy a game you can't play on another system. Think inFamous. That's a killer app.

Ouch. Well if anyone is interested, Sony plans to drop the price between August and November to this level. There are a ton of PS3 exclusives that rock now. The back catalog is growing and new titles are keeping pace with the 360 unlike in 2006 when all we had was the Darkness.

Dell very often has coupons that make the PS3 ~$340

The Dell deal is a good one but it also looks like the Amazon deal is back on. Musta found some additional units in the warehouse.

Oh, or this is a week after the E3 and rumblings are that Sony plans to release a "slim" version of the PS3 or a price drop but Sony didn't feel E3 was the right place to do that.

Sony could be empting inventory but no one believes that technical upgrades will be rolled out. Sure maybe a better laser or bigger HD but the HD you can replace with a screwdriver and 80gb is fine unless you download the Core magazine or movies a lot.

Some people are posting that Amazon had the ps3 for under $300 just a day or two ago but didn't advertise that price. $350 is a good deal but $299 is a killer deal.

I had a hard time adding it to my cart so the whole USA is probably mopping them up like Wiis on Amazon 2 years ago.

PS3 Slim would be hot.....
I'd get this if my launch 60gb unit went down.
