Amazon is having a video game-themed Gold Box sale today! If you're unfamiliar with the practice, during a Gold Box day Amazon posts a single deal item for the entire day, as well as a series limited-time "lightning" sales that change every two or three hours.

The main sale item is a 320 GB PS3 console, which is on sale for 259.99, down from 299.99. If you've been thinking about getting a PS3, now's the time buy: The 160 GB PS3 costs 249.99, so you'll basically be paying an extra bucks to double the size of your new PS3's hard drive.
