PS3 Rockets Up Bestseller List Due to $50 Promo

April 21, 2011Written by Staff

The PlayStation 3 is the most value-packed console ever. The future-proof design features Blu-ray, a Cell processor and a built-in HDD. But you already knew that. What you didn’t know is that a new $50 promotion has caused quite a stir, making the PS3 the current best-selling console at one particular retailer.

Due to an all-new $50 promotional credit, the 160GB PS3 has risen to a comfortable spot within Amazon’s bestseller’s list. The $50 promotional credit can be used toward any item that’s shipped and sold from, but it’ll be best used to pick up a new game (we suggest Portal 2 or Mortal Kombat).

This is particularly interesting due to the stiff competition the PS3 currently is facing on Amazon where the $199 4GB Xbox 360 has a similar $50 promotional credit and the Nintendo Wii’s price has been dropped to a staggering $169.99 — almost half of the PS3’s price point.

If you’re in the market for a second PS3, or if you haven’t yet picked one up (why the hell not?), its time to take advantage of this $50 credit promo on Amazon.
