An early lunchtime deal today; Catch Of The Day is holding a flash sale from midday AEST, so I thought I'd get in early to allow you time to register over there if it piques your interest. Amongst the goods they're flogging off (decided by popular vote) are PS3 Slims (bet on the lower storage model) for $199, 3DS for $129 and $5 Nerf Guns.
