Super awesome BARGAINS! cheap cheap
Thought it would be good to have a place where if we see any tech/gaming/gadgetry type stuff at an awesome price or find something unique/rare we could post it here for all to benefit.



First up has already been mentioned, but myer have advertised PS3 80gb + LBP for $688 in a sydney catalogue (shoddy phonecam pic for proof) though from what i've heard so far they don't have it in stock yet..






also, http://www.catchoftheday.com.au/ will have the Wii in limited stock at $199 today (their daily item changeover is midday)..



no idea what delievery costs/timeframe would be

They mostly sell distress stock and closeouts, watch out for restocks and shop pulls.

Yeah I was going to mention the COTD birthday bash in the chat thread but figured you lot would be all over it.

$200 for a Wii is hot - JB have it + WiiSports for $388 at the moment. Only 17mins left for rollover and seems their server is packing it in already from too many pepople viewing the site at once. Just got an error message

Let this represent the number of people that come to the site everyday:

Relative to that, this is the number of people we projected would turn up. We made special arrangements to accommodate for this (5 times the usual number):

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||

Fortunately or unfortunately, this is the number of people that have actually turned up:

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||


Now we are still able to, and are currently accommodating and selling to the original number of people we expected, however as you can see the turnout was well beyond our expectations, and indeed anyone's reasonable expectation. Some of you may be able to view/add to cart, others may not, chances are you will get through eventually.

In the meantime our system admins are working on adding additional resources, we should see improvement over the next few hours.

Stay tuned and I apologise for the crude symbolic representation – best I could do for the moment!

Thats only $10 less than a 4GB refurb from Apple though, hardly worth the hassle, especially if you also have to pay shipping.
