Bundle is out on November 1st

http://www.amazon.co...16837143&sr=1-1



Nice. Very similar to the Infamous 2 bundle, only without the free PS+ for 30 days, though you do get the bonus DLC with pre-order.

Maybe this explains why Toys R Us had that 249 fire-sale on the inFamous 2 bundle.

EDIT: Actually, according to the box art, this also includes the free PS+ 30 day trial.

Thanks, glad I didn't open the 160gb I bought from Gamestop yet. Gonna return it and pre-order this bundle since I was planning on pre-ordering Uncharted 3 there too.

While I'm there I'll find out if this bundle qualifies for the penny arcade poster and creepy crawler kickback.

hmm interesting. Im gonna need a new PS3. Mines been dead for months and months now. I keep waiting for a sale around the holidays, this may be the system to get.

One thing though. If i read it right the only pre order bonus you get is some weak DLC for multiplayer. Is that right? I could'nt care less about that myself, so if thats all I will probably wait for a sale around xmas. TC is right though this helps explain the infamous 2 bundle sale. I didn't jump on that because i already had infamous 2

I wonder what kind of sales we'll get around the holidays.. i got a new 360 simply because i was worried the gears of war one would sell out fast like the RE system did, but sonys not having any true LE systems so theres no rush

Why can't Sony be a little creative with these bundles? All you get is a vanilla system and controller. Look at the recent Gears of War 3 system bundle MS put out. Cool graphics on the system and controllers both.

Why not just stalk the Amazon Warehouse Deals site and get a used-like new condition 160gb slim from them for $180 shipped? Their used consoles are leagues better than the used crap you'd get from Gamestop.

At least then you're saving about $50-60 from MSRP.;)

thats what im saying. MS has some neat bundles. Sony always just throws a regular system in with a game.. meh. Japan gets some unique stuff. I REALLY wanted the Japanese Ni No Kuni PS3. That thing was sexy

yuck, a used system? No thank you. I never buy new games for current gen stuff, I would especially never buy a used system. These things are flakey enough if you take super good care of them, i dont want something that someone treated god knows know. Supposedly the wharehouse stuffs not too bad, but its still used.

I hope these go on sale for about 250 around the holidays. I guess the plus to the pre order bonus being so lame is im not inclined at all to pre order it

The standalone system by itself is $250 already. So just go trade some games into Best Buy or wherever, pre-order a game for $5 to get the 40% bonus and you should be able to get enough to cover a new system.

FYI: A good percentage of folks ordering the consoles used from AWD get them in truly like new condition, where nothing even looks like it's been opened. Albeit I did have an experience where I received a 'like new' console that had parts missing and chips in the top of the console. But that's a rarity and not the norm.

See, I'm not sure you will see a sale. It's a limited edition bundle. Rarely do you see a sale on those, that Toys R Us thing was really a rare occurrence. I didn't see any deals on the black ops or killzone 3 bundle. And as popular and highly anticipated as Uncharted 3 is, this thing will go quick.

Why can't Sony be a little creative with these bundles? All you get is a vanilla system and controller. Look at the recent Gears of War 3 system bundle MS put out. Cool graphics on the system and controllers both.


A lot of people buying new systems are people that are new to the console. So they might never have played the game. And then there are people that don't like it. And others might like the game, but for whatever reason might not want a specific paint scheme/design on their console. A solid black console goes nicely in almost any living room. One with a Gears of War paint scheme? Probably not as many as a solid black. So when you release a bundle with a paint scheme of a specific game, you are kind of painting the purchaser into a corner. They are mostly designed at die hard fans of the particular game.

Besides, you can always buy skins.

I dislike FF XIII, but the system they put out for that game and the one coming out for XIII-2 are super sexy.

I would get this bundle if I didn't already have the game paid off at Gamestop because I get nervous that my 80gb will die out any minute.

:applause:Especially at the 'you can always buy skins' portion. Honestly, I'd rather if Sony made a console with a different color plastic(or clear:shock:) rather than some graphics on the damn thing.

But then again I buy a console to play and not to look at n go 'ooooo pretty'.:razz::booty:

Best Buy also has it available for pre-order online, but with no DLC.

As far as the DLC bonus being "weak" and "embarrassing", the whole bundle is essentially a bonus. A 320 Gig unit retails at 299. So here you get a free 60 dollar game on release day.

lol..putting "skins" on your stock system is ghetto. These 360 bundles are limited editions and reflect the game they are bundled with. Plain black is the standard version and always available, so anybody can get one of those. The LE versions are really cool and are for those people who like something with style tied to a popular game. You don't have to be a "die-hard fan. I'm not a die-hard Gears fan, but I did buy the Gears 360 bundle over a plain system because of the extras and graphics. It's just bad-ass...lol. Plus these systems will always be worth more due to collectors and avid fans. Nobody collects the plain black systems..lol.

As for Sony.....they have always had PSP bundles with the PSP itself reflecting the games they are bundled with. Not sure why they are so boring with the PS3.

Just hope that you get the same 360 back if you ever have to send it in for repairs or if you were to get a custom 360 with a buncha signatures from the developers of a game that the repair center doesn't do THIS to it.:-#

Correct, in fact, that outer Uncharted 3 blue box is just a sleeve. Inside is just the regular Sony 320 GB PS3 silver box and they have inserted a card with the DLC, the unlock for the month of PSN+ and the game in a not for resale case. I'm sure Amazon or some other retailer will offer at least some kind of credit or similar package for less than $300 around Black Friday. Unless you need a PS3 right now and want the game anyway, you're better off waiting.

Well no, I don't carry my 360 around with me to use it as an autograph book..lol. I'm not that geeky. With the old fatty models system failure might have been a concern, but the slim model is much more reliable. There is a place here where I live that repairs systems if I ever have the misfortune of having my Gears system or my regular slim go down for the count.

If I had a console like that, I would NEVER send it in to be repaired. You're better off attempting to repair it yourself, or getting a decent repair shop to do it for you. While I feel bad for the guy, he was setting himself up for disappointment. You can never trust what customer service agents assure you over the phone..

while thats good advice for most people, and I appreciate the effort thats a no go for me. I never trade in my games, ever. Im gonna have to wait for a sale around xmas probably. I defintely want the 320 gig model too. After living with an old 40 gig for years and being out of space constantly, i dont want to worry about that again. Espeically with the PS3's memory hogging with all its games.

I just really wish sony would put out a console i would give a damn about buying =( theyre so plain

I'm not a collector and I never really have been, though if I do find rarities or sought after prior gen stuff while out and about I do buy them to hold onto.

But in prior gens I held onto EVERY game I had until the next gen came around. By the time I decided to let loose some of my collection to 'upgrade' to that next console none of the titles I had were worth anything.:cry:

As for the hard drive size, you know you can just toss a 2.5" SATA 5400rpm laptop hard drive into your own PS3 and don't have to rely on Sony for the larger drives, right?;)
