    I get one month holiday for Xmas which starts on december 14th. Is it worth waiting for the boxing day sales.. and for a week and a bit wishing i had a ps3 to play with.

    OR

    do i buy the ps3 asap and be happy, until i see theyve got some amazing new ps3 bundle and i couldve saved so much more money if i only had the patience to wait a bit longer.

    I want to get on with my work and this is really distracting me, therefore theres only one thing i can do...

    YOU DECIDE...........

    I guess
    but do PS3's go on the sale?
    They are still pretty popular, and loads of people will be wanting them after they have got christmas money!

    I dunno, maybe some shops do have better deals.

    Me and my brother chipped in for one last year, after Christmas, January time. I looked online and there honestly wasn't that much sales on for them.

    The consoles were really expensive to produce, and sonys profit margin on them must be narrow if not, non existent. I don't think it's likely that you'll see pounds slashed off the price, more than likely you'll see offers involving games and accessories.

    It depends if you want a free non official controller or other junk. As for games, they can be brought cheaply on places such as amazon marketplace.

    Last year, the PS3's went up just after Christmas.

    Might be a good idea to buy it now, before the Christmas rush happens..

    Usually better deal(s) before christmas anyway.

    I think it will be cheaper than xmas. Considering it's gone from almost £500 to £300 over the past few years, I can't imagine they'll slash the prices much more. I've certainly never seen ps3 bundles on sale. They seem to sell well enough themselves anyway!

    In other words BUY IT NOW

    However, Sony has moved to rule out any chance that it will be cutting the price of its console this side of Christmas. According to Sony Computer Entertainment president Kazuro Hirai, in discussion with the Financial Times, "The answer is yes, if you're asking, 'Are these the prices we're going with this Christmas?'”

    I doubt prices are gonna change much in Jan. usually you can find good bundle deals for the run up for Christmas

    Last year I got Assassin Creed and Uncharted n Ps3 = £299 @ GAME. I seen GAME advertising a ps3, gta4 and mgs4 for £299 this year, you cant beat that really :top:
