Buying a brand new PS3 can be really expensive. In fact, the greater hard disk storage there is, the higher is its price. A 160 Gb unit is currently at $294 in Amazon.com and 250 GB is already at $349. Moreover, these are only the basic versions with the standard inclusions, freebies excluded. Other accessories a buyer may want to purchase ala carte are the Dualshock 3 Wireless Controller and the Blu-Ray Disc Remote which should bring the total to almost $400. Smarter buyers, on the other hand, would go for the cheap PS3 bundles which already include add-on accessories discounted at a bundle price.
Amazon is great at selling reasonable PS3 bundle deals. Presently, they combined the 160 GB PS3 console with Tools of Destruction’s Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. This is the latest sequel of the prior versions of the Ratchet & Clank Future game — Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty. The questions in the minds of this game’s avid fans are said to be answered in this latest version. One can buy this PS3 bundle at $299.99 giving the customers a good savings of $70 from the original retail price of $369.99. But that is not all there is to it. This package also includes SingStar Dance Party Pack which allows the gamers a music gaming experience and adds a gameplay to the familiar karaoke-like performance action. It is capable of multi-player action and has 50 audio/video tracks that will surely give the owner a variety of choices.
Next of these PS3 console bundles is PS3 320 GB plus MOVE priced at $399. This bundle already includes the MOVE motion controller device which is paired with the Play Station Eye Camera. Users can now snipe from a distance, hit a home run, and tap in a 3 foot putt with great precision. What is good about buying bundles, however, is that you have the option to sell the other accessories as single items if you decide that it will be of no use at all. A MOVE motion controller sells at $49 and the Eye Camera sells at $30 dollars giving you a total of about $80 dollar returns without having to let go of the console which is now twice the hard disk capacity compared to the $160 Gb version.
PlayStation 3 160 GB Black Friday Bundle w/ Uncharted 2, Pixel Junk Shooter, Karate Kid Blu-Ray is another bundle that has gained popularity among gamers. A 9/10 review was generously accorded to this bundle by a customer who has bought it in Amazon.com . The free games were truly enjoyable and the price of $364.87 is just right.
One can also scout around for the best PS3 bundles, cheap PS3 consoles, and refurbished PS3 in Ebay. Too much variety can sometimes be confusing. Therefore, it is recommended that if one plans to buy PS3 bundles, he should firstly allot enough time for canvassing. It is priceless when one finds the best deal among many. In most cases, the reward goes to the most diligent seeker.
