Asda offers 40GB PS3 and two games for £299

As the January sales come to a close Asda is offering a tempting PlayStation 3 deal - buy the 40GB console for its RRP of £299 - but get two games for free.

Offering a total saving of £85.13 (back pocket patting savings indeed) the deal includes two particular titles - "Need for Speed ProStreet" and "FIFA 08".

Price-wise this does beat Sony's latest official bundle for the console (dubbed "Pick N Mix") that comprises of a 40GB PS3 and two first-party titles for £349.99 - although there is more of a choice with Sony's offer than just the two games.

Asda spokes-folk said: "This is an amazing offer for all those gamers who were disappointed not to get the PS3 for Christmas".

The offer is running from 31st January to 3rd February and will be available at Asda stores nationwide. And no, your girlfriend probably doesn't want one for Valentine's...
