Today at Sony Computer Entertainment’s Destination Playstation event they announced a new PS3 Bundle, a new PSP bundle, among other tidbits of info.
First in the wave of announcements is that there will be a new Bundle option for the Playstation 3. It will come with the 80GB PS3 model, the new Dualshock 3 wireless controller, and a copy of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, all for $499. The bundle will release along side Metal Gear Solid 4 on June 12. Additionally if you would like to purchase the Dualshock 3 separately, they will be available in April for $55.
The next announcement was of a God of War PSP bundle. Dubbed “The ‘Limited-Edition’ God of War Entertainment Pack”, it will include a ‘Deep Red’ PSP with Kratos immortalized on the back, a copy of God of War: Chains of Olympus, Superbad UMD, and a voucher to download Syphon Filter: Combat Ops from the Playstation Store on PC. It will release in June for $200.
Additionally, if you pre-order Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots, (set to release world-wide on June 12) you are guaranteed access into the Metal Gear Online beta when it begins in April. It’s not clear whether pre-orders of the MGS4 PS3 bundle will count toward this or not, but it’s always good when developers create incentive to pre-order.
