Wait, your PS3 didn't come with an ethernet cable? Are you sure about that? Because mine did.

Anyways, I wish this deal applied to Canada too :(
Oh hey apparently it might have. I don't remember seeing it though. I should check my box again. First time through I missed the USB cable too :(

Trigger pulled. There aren't that many PS3 exclusives I actually want to play, but Uncharted is one of them. Damn you, Kittonwy :lol

I don't remember needing to buy a wifi adapter for my 360. And I do remember my PS3's wifi being more annoying to set up than even the Wii. My PS3 is now connected using a ethernet cable which it didn't come with.

plot twist :eek: ps3 needed extra materials and 360 didn't!
the PS3 doesn't come with an ethernet cable anymore?

i know my 60GB came with one...

I've been debating whether or not I should get a PS3. I won't really get much out of it because most games that I'd want to play on the PS3 are going to show up on the 360. I'd get it for a Bluray player but I don't have a 1080p set. I think I can wait.

Anyone that has AAA can get 6% off if they aren't an employee of a company that participates in the 7% off. Just request a coupon from AAA.com then input it into the link the give you. It stacks the same as the 7% epp discount. Can't stack the 6% on top of the 7% though. Also, remember to buy a gift card for dell.com off ebay to save extra money.

Arrrrgh, why isn't the Wii included in this (I know, it's because nothing sold for it would complement what Dell sells)? The system with quite possibly the biggest margins ever doesn't get a cut? I'm getting really fucking sick of seeing the thing go for $250 new still...

And this is an insanely good deal for the HD folks. I'm very, very tempted to bite, I just can't find anything I don't already have on there.

Woah, I'm a AAA member, how come I've never been aware of this?! How do I request such a coupon?

Edit: NVM, I think I found the right links. :D

For example: $47.42 for Tales of Vesperia which I'm hearing rumours is now discontinued at both Best Buy and Toys R Us.

I was wondering why Tales of Vesperia price wasn't going down even after bombing and none of the best buys were getting restocks. Glad I bought it anyway a week ago, even if it was full price.

Just bought an 80GB PS3. My 40GB went down the shitter and was gonna cost me $150 to repair, so I just sold it on eBay or $180 and bought the new one for $316. Saved me a few bucks, plus now I have a full new warranty, bigger HDD, and a DS3 instead of sixaxis.

Thanks op!

Alright, GAF. I need your help, fast!

If I got the Pro 360 plus 3 games bundle, do the games come in shrink-wrapped packaging, so that I could return them to a store? Otherwise, I could always sell them used, but I'm itching to pull the trigger here, and if I could do that, then this would be such an amazing deal!

I'm not certain if they come wrapped but if my past experience is an indication, they will say "not for resale" on it. Making it a bit hard to return them as a game you bought at a store.

You can sell them new on eBay, if wrapped though.

Doesn't the 3000 have better battery life too? The 2000 for $135 is definitely a good deal, but the bundle of the 3000 is such a better value since I love Ratchet and would want to buy it anyway. Shame.

Wow, this is absurd... not a problem?

Yes, it does look terrible when it is SUPER ZOOMED IN. My brother has a 3000 it's nowhere near as bad as that image makes it look. It's hardly noticeable when you are just playing and don't have the screen 2cm from your face to notice the terrible looking scan lines.

Think I now have my chance to get a 360, but anyone else having trouble getting both the discount and shipping?

I can only get one or the other for some reason.

Pretty sure the XBox 360 Holiday Bundle is backordered. I ordered another one on Saturday and got a message from Dell this afternoon saying that it is backordered and won't be shipped until Feb. 2nd. :(

Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone who is a university student. You can get an extra 7% off on top of the sale discounts on the website, which really sweetens the deal. I accidentally forgot to use my student discount on my 360 Holiday bundle, but it would have saved me another $17 or so on my 360, on top of the $100 off. I called Dell to see if they could do a price adjustment the day after I ordered, but they refused to, which I think is pretty unreasonable. It had already shipped, so heaven forbid they adjust the billing information.

How do you get the university discount? I'm looking to get another PS3.

Conceptually, they should be able to simply adjust the billing. But logistically, a big company like Dell would probably have a nightmare manually adjusting billing like that for everyone who wanted one after they placed their order. Whoever you spoke to probably doesn't have the authority to do it. And I am guessing their bosses probably just told them that it "can't be done." I am under the impression that lower level employees are not made aware of exceptions to the rule because their bosses (who have the right to make these exceptions) can't have too many requests coming in for these exceptions. I could be wrong, I'm not a manager. But it seems logical that in order to keep requests for manually-done exceptions the the rule at a minimum, you would tell your customer service reps that there are no exceptions, period. Then, anyone important enough to be talking to a higher level person can be considered for the exception to the rule. I think that would be valued customers that customer service reps are told to bump up to a higher authority if they have problems, or just people who have connections.

Click the appropriate button.

Clicking through that link until I get to a 360 Elite bundle only gets me 21% off ($315~). How do I get a total of 28% again? Because it doesn't seem to work.

Of course, I specifically said it was broken. I wasn't expecting that much, but I think all my PSN games may have bumped up the price a bit. Kinda funny you can sell a broken, used PS3 for almost the price of a brand new, fully functioning 360 :lol
