Consoles: Playstation 3, 250GB Move bundle w/ Battlefield 4: $270 shipped – similar bundles will run you around the same price elsewhere but without a copy of Battlefield 4. Based on our lowest price of this bundle at $230 (without Battlefield 4), one way of looking at it would be that you are picking up a 250GB PS3 Move bundle matched at the cheapest price ever plus Battlefield 4 for $40, which would be its lowest price ever.
