40GB PS3 available (Good) but with false advertising (Bad)

The latest Hi-Fi corporation flyer is out and has 2 suprises along with it.

They have slashed R500 of the 40GB model and are selling it for R4479… but I thought it was R4500 normal price? I wonder if on the 1st of December we are going to be seeing the 40GB model selling for R5000 instead?

This wouldn’t be the first time something like this happened to South African consumers.

The second nasty but expected suprise is that the 40GB model is being sold as backwards compatible with all PS1 and PS2 games. I called this a few weeks ago and am not suprised by it.

I don’t know why SterKinekor or Sony are so eager to speak to the advertising standards agency again. Yeah they got caught in March as well. Cheap marketing tactic?

In the same brochure they have the Wii selling for R2879 (What an awful picture though) and the 360 with 2 games (Juiced and Moto GP 07) for R3899. Isn’t it a great time to be a gamer?
