honestly.. why in the HECK dont they make the greatest hits version in black?!?!

I would totally buy a black case... that red is just so...ugly

Also... good going OP but i would suggest everone to STAY AWAY from this deal...

there is a ps3 price drop on march 22... it should go down to 300...

If this deal is going to be 400 after the price drop...sony... SHAME ON YOU! your hyping up your price 40 bucks more (GH = 30)

Why would Sony release a bundled PS3 package and have a price drop? What's your source on the March 22 price drop?

:oops:

I still say there might be some form of price drop... in all honesty (red cases aside) both of these games are pretty darn good and if there ISNT a price drop... then this is a sweet deal for anyone trying to start up a good PS3 library

Hey guys, NO RUMOR! I saw these last week at a Target here in Jersey. My reaction was like "What the Hell!" I was just telling a friend the same thing today. Even the guys at the local Gamestop had no clue about this. But Target is notorious for putting items on the shelf before the street date. I saw RE5 in the case on Tuesday of last week.

Well then I hope that's true, otherwise this is a decent deal.

It its true. I saw it with my own eyes.

And as far as a price drop goes, I saw the streaming news ticker while watching G4, and it said that a Sony bigwig confirmed that there will be no price drop soon.

I believe that this bundle is there way of avoiding a price drop. It makes sense. They bundle 2 games that costs them nothing to make, at least now anyway, and keep the price of the system where it is. And then the statement from Sony saying that there will be no price drop soon.

honestly.. why in the HECK dont they make the greatest hits version in black?!?!

I would totally buy a black case... that red is just so...ugly

Also... good going OP but i would suggest everone to STAY AWAY from this deal...

Because then it wouldn't be a Greatest Hits. Duh!

So, is this new rumored bundle going to include a HDMI cable or are they still forcing people to buy it on monoprice? (or some idiots buy a monster cable for $40)

what a crappy deal. is this what the ps3 has become? giving out 2 old games with the system to hopefully push sales. what they should do is add the motorstorm 2 game and an hdmi cable or extra sixasis controller and that would be semi decent.

If their answer is to add a 2-year-old game you can get for ~$25 instead of dropping the price... I think they're officially screwed. $400 is $400, an extra game doesn't substantially increase it.

Meanwhile Microsoft is selling a $400 bundle with a brand new game (RE5) which goes for $60 new, which makes the Elite more like $350, only it comes with an HDMI cable.

Now if they're doing a new bundle AND a price drop... then I think they still stand a chance, and as a PS3 owner I hope that they do.

Not for nothing, but why does everyone seem to have a stiff-one over the HDMI cable? You can buy one for a couple of bucks. And Microsoft only includes one with the Elite. Their other two models still lack an HMDI cable.

I've always found it pretty stupid that Sony touts the PS3 as the height of high-definition entertainment, but then doesn't include a high-definition cable in the box. Nonetheless, it's not exactly a big deal, not in my book.

I do agree, though, that sticking two greatest hits titles in the box isn't going to make a lot of people run out to the store, especially when you can buy Motorstorm for $15 used at GameStop, thanks to the flood of previously bundled-in copies that got dumped there. All in all, this doesn't seem like the package that is going to get fence-sitters to finally say, "Yeah, that's what I was waiting for. The PS3 is priced right in my book, now."

Exactly, this is a start though. If Dell starts to offer this and the 20% off coupon it would be a decent deal at the least.

Maybe Sony plans to offer another credit card offer similar to the previous "200 off 349."

If they throw these two games and drop the price to $350 we could end up having a great deal on dell.com.

But till then, eh...

Their probably just going to start adding the 2 games in this new SKU for $400, and then sell the existing bare system SKU for $350 until they run out of that version.

Really? Please reply to every deal thread where you already own the item in question, only make sure not to make any remark of redeeming value such as "I think this is a much better deal than what I got it for, everyone should jump on this." You have no idea how much of a service you are performing for us.

Not the greatest deal but better than them doing nothing and keeping Core at $400. Become? You act like this has never been done before. Bundling old games with consoles has happened on 360, on PS2, on Xbox, on GC. And farther back than that.

If anyone is holding their breath for a price drop, you're going to suffocate.
Just take the dell deal and get a new 80gb for ~340 shipped.

If Sony really wants to get people to run out and buy a PS3 without dropping the price, they should include 2 great new games. Throw in Little Big Planet AND MLB '09: The Show and I guarantee they'll move some systems. As it stands, this bundle is kind of...meh. I know a couple people on the fence waiting for a price drop or a new, sweet bundle but this deal won't get them to budge. One took the plunge into this gen with the RE5 360 bundle.

If only we could get that damn sweet Yakuza 3 system over here...

I agree... if they threw in little big planet that could sell more items.. i would also suggest an additional controller...but lets be honest here... there's close to no reason to get a second controller (other than RE5)

Honestly i just got my ps3 and i am purchased both... Motorstorm and Resistance...
