This review is from: PS3 500 GB Assassin's Creed III Bundle (Video Game)
This was well worth the money spent.
I spent about $250 for a 120gb PS3 "slim" when it originally came out, but man....This is an amazing deal. An extra 380gb of memory plus a free game for just an extra $50 compared to the original sales price when the "slim" model came in 2010.
It was wonderful when it arrived. It actually came a day earlier than it's supposed to. In fact, it actually came about 24 hours earlier than it should have. The box was nice and secured, they left it at the front office, since I was not at home at the time, and picked it up.
I opened the box, and the box looks just as it was in the picture, amazing. It came with the 30-day free-trial of PSN+, however I did not like that they asked for credit card information to activate it. The Ps3 "slim" was impressive. I compared it to my old one, and wow! It was so small compared to it. I was thinking, whilst looking at the new Ps3 "Wow, now THIS is a Ps3 slim!". I hooked up all the wires, and had it working. The new disc slot is cool, press a button and it actually slides open, my only gripe is that it basically is just manually shut. Other than that, the system runs perfectly fine. It's incredibly quiet compared to my old Ps3, and just more aesthetically pleasing.
All in all, I recommend this product for buy as a replacement, or a gift for the holidays. I mean, think of it. It's around $250 for 120gb, about $279 for a 180gb, $299 for a 320gb, but come on! for the same price of a 320gb Ps3 you could get an extra 180gb and a free game! So buy it now.

Mine is arriving tomorrow and wasn't due till the 5th - 8th! I ordered a month ago and am so excited. I have the old first gen PS3 with only 80GB and i paid $500 for that one - about 6 years ago! I needed more space, wanted the Dual Shock controller (wasnt available when the 3 first came out) and wanted the new AC game. Great price for the upgrade and everything else included!!!!

The psn plus 30 day trial requires a credit card because sony will charge you for a subscription to plus after the trial is over, straight to your credit card. Just a heads up even though its in the fine print.
