The credit is NOT posted on your next billing statement. The fine print says 8-12 weeks after approval which means that you do NOT get the PS3 for $249 at all. You get it for $399 and have to pay that price before receiving the credit on a future statement. You can then apply that credit to an additional $150 worth of purchases.

It’s a small detail, but if you thought you would buy the PS3, apply the credit and walk away having paid $249 for the system you are mistaken.

One of the biggest features for me in the plus column of the PS3 is the blu-ray dvd player. I have been wanting a game system for some time, as well as a Blu-Ray player.

If I were to go with the XBox we are looking at at least $400.00 for a decent system and maybe a game or two (probably bundled ones I do not really want), then add another $200 – 300.00 for a Blu-Ray player and I would be WAY over any budget.

The $150.00 discount from Sony is the real deal maker for me. I am going to take advantage of it.

This is a credit card promotion that Sony has been running since at least last year. Depending on the month the incentive has varied from $100 to $150. When the offer expires this month it will be replaced/renewed by another offer.

So if they were already selling the units at a loss and hoping to make it up in software; then by lowering the price and increasing sales, they not only increase their loss per unit but increase their total loss even more due to the increased volume.

Nice :( but I dont think there are many people that really want a PS3 (that are wealthy enough), still sitting on the fence over a mere 150 bucks. Take 150 bucks off for the Walmart shopper Sony! No strings 250 bucks plus a game or two. Then the ability to play bluray and games… looks like fun and not a investment.

Wal-mart will not honor this as this is not a blackfriday deal, it is a deal to get people to get a credit card from sony, also offer expires 12/31/08 as it is a promotional deal for the card. You can get a Ps3 if approved for the card at that price and ONLY if approved by sony finacial.

Personally I find the PS2 to be the most cost effective console out there, as you can get one brand new for a little over a hundred, and they are still making games for it, games which are generally $20 cheaper than the games for the PS3.

In the fine print it reads: Final delivery price $284 80gb model $389 for 160gb model.The game division is built on lies and empty promises. I dont have any credit cards and i dont want any. If walmart honnors this price i would just sell it for the profit. This comming from a guy that owned 3 ps2’s with 40+ games And a PSP. They have lost respect and Creditability. Sony i want to love you agian but it has to be a 2 way street.
