    The super slim PS3 is going to be flying off the shelves this holiday.

    New hardware of the already most popular gaming console worldwide with some of the best games of all time? Sony is going to hit a home run.

    Well it's like the Vita bundles...The same price but a free game is effectively a $50 discount on the device. Like who would go and buy a console and no game? Well, it worlks out well if the bundled game is something you want. Sony need to do some other bundles leading upto Xmas.

    They have that Assassins Creed III bundle for November. They will probably have one for PS Battle Royale in December.

    Oh I dunno how I missed that post. Yeah that's a badass bundle. There is a FIFA 13 bundle in the EU.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    So if the item sold out and didn't break top ten.

    You put the two and two together, you understand that Amazon didn't have enough units.

    LOVE MATH.

    Yeah, not surprised they sold out. They are just starting production and ramping up. Not enough to sell yet. Give it time and it will hit the top 10 for the holiday.

    That's how I read it as well...still good it sold out but I doubt they had more than a few hundred units. I still do not get why they didn't drop the price...heck even $249 would have been a big thing going into the holiday.

    I get the "added value" but meh thats just my opinion I suppose.

    Exactly! Give Amazon more units to sell and I am sure it would break the top 10. If the total units they have to sell is not enough to make the top 10, then why even mention the top 10? lol

    Probably haven't shipped many, but it's going to sell regardless without the price drop since its a revision, Sony was smart not to drop the price this fall, probably Spring we'll see it drop to $199.

    Probably the same as Vita, around $100ish (can't see them costing any more than $200 to make)

    Well let's say amazon has 300 SS ps3 and sell all of them technically they did "sell out" but it was such a low number of units it doesn't make the top ten. Could be a PR stunt
