PS3 cut to £157.99 - Sainsbury's takes an axe to games hardware prices

Publish date:

Retail giant Sainsbury's has been the first supermarket to go aggressive on pricing this year. But it's not new software the grocer is discounting – the firm has instead slashed up to 25 per cent off new games hardware

That means the 160GB PS3 is down to 157.99, 3DS is available for a mere 119.99, while a Black Wii with a copy of Mario Kart can be picked up for 97.49.

Elsewhere, the PlayStation Move Starter Pack has been reduced to 42.99.

The deals started on Wednesday (November 23rd), and follows a similar promotion on Xbox 360 – which saw the 250GB edition fall to just 154.99 in-store.

This is a great offer and one that we are sure will be popular with customers in the run up to Christmas,” said Sainsbury's games manager Gurdeep Hunjan.

Gamers are increasingly aware that Sainsbury's is the place to come for the best deals on consoles, games and accessories and this deal will reinforce that.”
