$470(ish) is fast becoming the standard price for Sony's latest console. Fresh on the heels of last week's CatchOfTheDay deal comes this new offer from Dick Smith. So what are you waiting for? That tax return isn't going to spend itself.
We're starting to suspect that an official console price drop might not be too far off. But for those who can't wait, this is probably the best deal you're going to get locally.
479 smackeroos gets you the standalone 500GB console, plus free delivery if you order online. You'd be hard pressed to find a cheaper deal overseas, once shipping is taken into account.
There is one caveat, however -- Dick Smith is apparently waiting on new stock which means you might have a bit of a wait on your hands. We imagine this shouldn't amount to a week or two at most, however. The console doesn't come bundled with any games either, but that's to be expected at this price point.
The deal is available for today only, so don't be like Homer when he put off seeing Mr. T at the mall.
So what do you reckon? Is it time to join Sony's shiny new race of fanboys, or will you be holding off for an even bigger price drop? Give us your two cents (or $479) in the comments section below.
