Yes, hence why we reported the rumour on the 31st and are doing a follow up on the confirmation.

I wasn't having a go at you or anything, although it appears you are taking it like that and a few of my recent comments. I was just stating that the bundle is in stores already as people might have not known when the bundle started.

Huh? What would give you that impression? It doesn't really matter I was just justifying the article. Let's not make something out of nothing here.

Whack $200 off the price and this would be a great deal. As it is at the moment, it's only a good deal if you're already intending to buy a PS3.

Hey guys!

I work for Harvey Norman and have only just been able to bypass my Novell client at work so I can now post at will!

To confirm pricing on this bundle: the console with controller and games is retailing for $788 everywhere with Harveys adding Skate, Timeshift, Assassins Creed and an HDMI cable for a further $199.

Also, first post wootage!

Are you referring to retailer created bundles, or official Sony bundles (which these are)?

Can I ask which version of the console this is? Gig wise ofcourse!

I think its pretty crap... $799 for PS3 with Uncharted which can be found for $79 + an extra controller worth what, $60?

Its decent but should have carried the same RRP of the original 40gb.

SRP for drakes is $109.95 and a controller is $79.95

given consoles are $699.95 its pretty decent if you buy at SRP.

Consoles usually go for $687 depending on the person buying and the person selling. Controllers at $70 and drakes for ~$90. still a good deal.

If you look at a console going for $687 then you are getting drakes AND a controller for $81, its not the best package ever, but its nice.

I must have been lucky. I picked up my PS3 for $598, Uncharted for $85 and extra controller for about $65 at Dick Smiths in mid-January.

it would've been better if it was still $699
by the way, do any of the games included in the bundle have multi-player?
nice addition though.

Well NBA 08 would. Never a bad thing to have 2 controllers for the PS3 lying around. It's always great to charge one while you're using the other one. Not to mention always handy when you have a friend that comes around and wants play something multiplayer (rental or bought game).

My deal was better, PS3 plus (shudder) Spider-man 3 Blu-ray. $435inc post

gotta love eBay!
