New Playstation 3 – Prices and Where to buy in Australia

Ok, now that ABC has joined the party and is now offering iView on the PS3, that is the deal maker for me.

So where to buy it? Well America is the best answer as our friends in the US of A get the console for about AUD$375 compared with the RRP of AUD$499 here in Australia. However shipping, 110VAC power supply, and region locked Games and BluRay movies make this money saving purchase unviable.

So what deals are the locals offering?

JB HiFi gives it to you for $494 and throws in a HDMI cable.
Dick Smith has done nothing but at least they read the RRP and have it listed at $499 unlike Big W who must have missed that detail and have it listed for $587.44!

Harvey Norman will give you a game although they don’t say which one and they have knocked a whole dollar off the price at $498.

So far the lowest price I’ve seen is dStore at $474.95

Most of the other major national retailers still don’t seem to have grasped the whole internet thing and only have web pages showing the catalogues that I’ve already seen over the last month and have nothing about the new PS3.

If I’ve missed any bargains let me know!
