    good question, i wouldn't mind getting one in the next few weeks, assuming the price is reasonable.

    Also, there are now 2 versions out i believe, but shipped as the same model. Main difference is a quieter fan in the new version.

    Not sure how you can check whether you are getting the old version or the new version.

    Theres also the 1TB version as opposed to the 500GB version.

    OP and ender Id look at HUKD for deals.

    websites like shopto, gamestop, amazon and GAME are reputable, there are other websites as well.
  • Seen a couple of "reasonable" looking bundles in Game - 500gb with Assassins Creed Syndicate, Watchdogs, Uncharted Collection & another game for £299.99. While the games aren't jaw dropping, it's still technically 6 games to me with Uncharted being 1-3, compared to what I'd seen recently that's decent bang for buck. (Had been seeing FIFA + 1 more for the same price)

    Depends how desperate you are in getting one. Black Friday deals could be worth waiting for.

    I got mine from Tesco - used a big wadge of vouchers so didn't have to pay as much cash. PS4 prices aren't that variable from what I saw - seems to be about what you can get with it, rather than the base cost. If you get new games with it, you can always sell them or trade them in if they aren't what you want - sooner rather than later though as trade in prices tend to drop quickly. The must have gave this Christmas on PS4 is likely to be Star Wars Battlefront - looks a good game plus the new movie comes out in December.
  • Battlefront will be big this Christmas, but it's not even close to being the "must have game this Christmas", top five maybe, top dog, definitely not.
