Could this be a massive linkbaiting attempt to boost SEO, an accidental misprice or a genuine clearance operation? An established online retailer, 24studio (opens in new tab) is currently offering the Sony Playstation 3 gaming console for £130, a price that goes down to £117 thanks to a 10 per cent money off (and free delivery) code, 019.
Amazon in comparison sells the console which comes with a 160GB hard disk drive for £189. We have tried to get in touch with 24Studio to find out whether the deal is indeed real and are awaiting an answer (via Twitter).
The deal is on the slim version of the console, not the "fat" model. It's worth noting that no other vendors have yet cut the price of the Playstation 3 and we've heard nothing yet from our contacts within the industry.
A £117 PS3 would radically change the dynamics of the traditional gaming console market in the UK, as it would be significantly cheaper than the Xbox 360 Elite. We will update this article as soon as we get hold of anything new. We'd suggest that you don't part with your hard earnt cash just yet.
