PS3 Console Bundles
It’s almost Christmas now and everyone’s busy looking around for gifts and presents to give to loved ones. I’m sure by this time, the list is almost done. In just a few days, you will probably begin going around shopping malls to look for the right item. If PlayStation 3 is part of your list, go ahead and scout around Sony shops. A brand new Playstation 3 bought at a Sony shop will most likely cost you $800. Now, that can be quite expensive. If you are trying to work out on quite a tight budget, you may want to consider buying the refurbished ps3s instead. Ask the Sony attendant if they have available supplies of refurbished ps3s. If there is none, ask if there are ps3 currently on Sale. Exercise a little of your Math skills and try compute how far down the price goes after the discount is applied. If it results to a price $600 and above and it finally suits your budget, go on ahead. Buy it. If not, the only other options to find good ps3 deals would be through online retailers.
Two of the famous online stores are Amazon and eBay and they sell ps3s in bundles. I don’t know how ‘bundles’ registers to you, but, I am always inclined to think that it means there are add-ons and other inclusions. Bundles are usually cheaper compared to buying the items separately. This is a marketing strategy employed by many establishments to attract attention among customers since bundles pertain to ‘many’. Bundles work best especially if the item tied up to the product is very popular in the market. For example, Killzone 2 is now one of the most sought after games by the teens nowadays. Teenagers who are interested about it will naturally look it up in stores and if it is tied up with the ps3 console, then, it consequentially advertises the product as well.
An 80GB PlayStation 3 Console with Power Pack Bundle is named as it is since it is quite complete with all exciting functions and features. It sells at $650 for a brand new item in Amazon. Refurbished versions sell at $349.98. Aside from the console, it already includes the wireless controller, Remote control, HDMI Cable and charging station to ensure nonstop viewing in full clarity, has multimedia capabilities, Built-in Blu Ray Disc player, Wi-fi Capability, Digital Photo Storage, and 80Gb hard drive.
Some bundles include games instead. Games like Killzone 2, Medal of Honor, Need for Speed, Toy Story 3, Gran Turismo, Move Starter Pack, Call of Duty, and others. A 160Gb PlayStation 3 Black Friday Bundle with Unchartered 2, Pixel Junk Shooter, and Karate Kid Blu-Ray sells at $355.97. On the other hand, a 320Gb Playstation 3 system with Playstation Move Bundle costs $399. A PS3 250 GB Bundle with LittleBigPlanet and an HDMI Cable costs at $429.99.
