Blimey. Let's hope the customers don't also get a loan from Wonga.com to fund the monthly payments !

True! :Lol:

 

Then when they are in debt they all go to Ocean Finance. Who will rip them off even more.

Even the cash price would be over priced.

 

At the moment they are offering a 320gb Ps3 with Resistance 3, GT5, Killzone 3 and Little Big Planet 2 for the bargain cash price of £387.14.

 

However, if you want to pay for it weekly with their 'optional' insurance (if you don't have home contents insurance with accidental damage and goods away from the home cover then it is very much non-optional) is will cost you £655.74

 

(Why you need items away from the home cover for a PS3 I'm not entirely sure as the vast majority of people leave it at home)

I may be wrong so don't hold me to this but, I think only the 80gb models launched in North America, South Korea, Singapore/Malasia, Mexico and Hong Kong had partial backward compatibility.

Thats what I must be remembering about the B/C models.

to Siri - I remember all the various models being produced, I picked up a launch 60GB for £400 then watched as the costs dropped and I only ever played 2 PS2 games (Metal Gear Solid 2 and RE4), should have saved the cash!!

Well, if one store in your local town has 8, I'm guessing not that rare.
