New PS3 holiday bundle
A photo released on Monday suggests Sony and Best Buy are set to release the newest PlayStation 3 bundle, timed just right for the holiday season. The bundle consists of an 80GB PlayStation 3 system, one DualShock 3 controller, the Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction gaming title and Casino Royale movie on Blu-ray disc. The system is due for a November 28th release, more commonly known as Black Friday and may be a Best Buy exclusive. Priced at just shy of $400, the bundle effectively adds the game and movie for free, as the 80GB system by itself up until now was priced identically.
Previous PS3 bundles have included the LittleBigPlanet combo, though that hasn't been confirmed nor sold yet in for North America, as well as an 80GB system with Metal Gear Solid 4 available to a wider audience. Others have included the discontinued 40GB system with Spider-Man 3 on Blu-ray, as well as the 60GB launch system with Motorstorm. [via Crunchgear]
