ASDA’s confirmed that it’s dropped the price of the 80GB Playstation 3 in the UK down to £249.

The supermarket chain is offering the 80GB along with Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines on Blu-ray and Terminator Salvation: The Game as well as a choice of either Ghostbusters or inFamous.

A ASDA rep told GI that the offer would run until stock ran out.

Yip, the price-cut is getting more likely by the hour. Only four hours and thirty-four minutes left to go before the ‘tons start to drop.

    Think that may have been a Asda Spokesperson as Sony haven’t confirmed the drop yet.

    It is looking more likely though that a slim is on the way, or maybe not lol.

    Gotta love all this speculation.

    “Do you have to take the Terminator game?”

    More to the point, how much will GameStation give me for it if I put it towards MGS4?

    If its US $299 for a Slim, it could easily be £199 in the UK based on todays exchange rate.

    Live rates at 2009.08.18 12:48:54 UTC
    299.00 USD = 181.864 GBP
    United States Dollars United Kingdom Pounds
    1 USD = 0.608240 GBP 1 GBP = 1.64409 USD

    Dont count on it Robster – £250 is more than likely as it seems to be €299.

    You forgot VAT Robster.

    Add £30 to your calculation. Then add the extra “UKSHOPPERSTAKEITUPTHEARSE” tax.

    There was a rumour on the EG thread about £239 this morning.

    In which case why not buy one from the US (region free) for circa £190 and pay £10 shipping.

    Bobs you Uncle, Ps3 Slim for £199.

    Surely Sony cant be stupid enough to price the UK model at £249.

    What do they think we are? Stupid. (rhetorical question)

    Surely $299 in the US includes some sort of sales tax? ie equivalent or similar to VAT?

    Scrap that, I just noticed its $299 pre tax @ KMART

    Robster; US prices are always with no tax, as tax varies from state to state.

    Don’t forget your import duty, Robster.
