According to a source in Spain Sony Computer Entertainment's vice president for Spain and Portugal, James Armstrong has confirmed that a new Starter Pack is due to go on sale on 31 January
uncharted and rachet well thats a cool bundle
I dont see anyone NOT PICKING up that bundle in europe
considering how well uncharted is selling right now its definetly a smart bundle. However the ratchet and clank choice is questionable. In my opinion they should have included a multiplayer title in there like maybe warhawk to at least show of ps3's multiplayer capabilities. Both games rated reen. Uncharted and warhawk would have been a better bundle imo
I think ratchet is a great game to bundle in there. It's an awesome game and one that has been overlooked. It's done OK in sales but this bundle will only help. Gratned it doesn't show of the PSN but, graphicly R&C walks all over Warhawk and is as fun. It's a great bundle hitting the less serious gamer too.
oh don't get me wrong i loved ratchet and clank as much if not more than i love uncharted but at the same time the purpose of a bundle is to introduce key titles to showcase the systems strengths i jst feel a multiplayer game should have been thrown in there and i being a warhawk fan can never agree with your statement about it being more fun. You jst havent experienced any warhawk battles where your teams got the flag and you all are rolling in a convoy of 5-6 jeeps. Warhawk is easily one of my favourite multiplayer titles. Ratchet and clank on the other had is an excellent game with the best 6 axis use to date.
Both games are great. I can't see anyone not liking Uncharted but if Ratchet is not your thing you shouldn't have any problems selling it off and using that money toward Warhawk.
In fact this is probably the best bundle I could ask for at the moment. However, it stil doesn't convince me to buy a PS3. I am holding out for 2 more features; the DS3 and BC. When they are added, thats when I will buy a PS3 (this is my one man campain to see the return of BC :p ).
I always thought a better bundle would have been Heavenly Sword and Motorstorm, but this bundle seems like it will sell pretty good!
That's a hell of a starter pack. Uncharted and Ratchet. I would love to pick up a PS3 with those to games included if I didn't have one already.
Two PS3 must haves titles and an extra controller. That not a bad Starter Pack.
why make a starter pack now if they plan to add the dualshock 3 not too long from now. This would mean that EU wont be seeing the DS3 too soon. The starter pack is great because it includes two amaizing games but what about the DS3.
with an Atractiv Bundle, so that this Sku goes out of the Retailers, so that the new one can Released Sorry for my bad English:)
but this is the 40 gb sku which is not the one they are getting rid off, thats the 80gb. They will continue to sell it. Do they sell a different one for the 40gb over there? Anyways I was just worried that this would push the DS3 even more and I think its very important to have it out sooner than later.
not the hole 40Gb version you Know
That's a Hell of a starter pack, if I didn't own a PS3 already I'd travel to Spain just to get it.
i would have done the same but i already own a ps3.
I think that bundle will be launched across all countries of europe not just Spain
Good bundle but I seriously hope Sony releases a PS3 bundled with a DS3 controller and a copy of MGS4,and a possible price drop maybe?;)
there will more than likely be a price drop. With the reduce cost of blu ray and also they will probably be shrinking down cell processor soon that should also reduce costs a bit so in the end we will see a price drop not sure if it will hit with mgs4 though since mgs4 is still quite far away more likely with grand theft auto
This would be a pretty cool bundle, but they might just release the DS3 separately.
They should have put in a DualShock 3 instead of the 2 SixAxis controllers, otherwise pretty good pack. 2 great games and an extra controller for 100 euros more, not bad at all
it says 60 GB on the box??
it's an image of the first starter pack (motorstorm+resistance) i bought 2 months ago
that's just the value pack availible now...
'that's just the value pack availible now...' Availibe now? mate its been out of stock since about November/early december in europe
That's a hell of a pack for you Europeans. I'm still waiting for a white PS3 so I could get my second console for my bedroom :)
When are they going to release a new starter pack like that in the US? I have been waiting all month for some deal to push me over the edge and finally pick up a ps3, but nothing has happened. BTW, anyone know what will happen to the 5 free blu-ray deal after Jan31st?
And this would do it, I am SO close to owing a PS3 to go along with my 360 and have been waiting to see any new announcements in the US. I too wonder what the deal will be (if there is one) once the 5 free Blu-ray expires in a few days
The 5 bluray movies has been extended to the end of February...
But again, I am excited that I will soon be a PS3 owner. I loved my Ps2. I can't wait to see what I have missed and to be in on all the exclusives I can't get on 360
Nice bundle would be nicer to have DS3's in there though.
now is the time to add the DS3 if they plan on making a new starter pack
the blu ray deal isnt a ps3 promotion its a blu ray player promotion it really doesnt have anything to do with the ps3 and i felt the same way when they offerd that and went out and got 1 and i loved it for about 2 weeks then i was right back to my 360 in fact i had cod4 for the ps3 and traded it in for a 360 copy,dont get me wrong i like the ps3 but im kinda waiting in limbo until home comes out before i buy multiplatform games on the ps3
Were there more people you knew on the 360 version or what?
Are you more comfortable with LAG?
On a side note, I'm addicted to The Spill Canvas tonight...
... cause this is how it's supposed to be done: 2 must-have games, plus 2 controllers.
Slightly disappointed that it arent the new rumbling controllers yet. :(
But yeah, nice deal, and hopefully some stores will bring the price down to about 400-450 euro.
I will still wait untill I can buy a PS3 for 300 bucks though. 300 euro is enough for a console.
came with cod4 and AC the week of release for the price of just the console (£349)
The ps3 sells so well in eu these types of deals are really great in my opinion. Like someone said ms should take a close look at this and match sony when it comes to these starter packs. Good times for gamers
you get a headset with the 360, i do think warhawk and one of those games would of been better it would of pushed more people to sign up to psn but hey why not a headset aswell.
The 360 is bundled with Forza 2 and Viva Pinata... not exactly "must have" games, in my opinion. Sony have these bundles and they always include best selling games. Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted are basically new games. There's no point in bundling Warhawk, it has no single player component and not everyone has Internet access.
Good starter pack!!!! here comes a sales BOOST :D
it'd be better if it was 80 GB with BC
good good good
I think it’s a good deal, 2 amazing games and one extra Sixaxis for only a 100 euros, sucks that it’s the 40 GB, but I think it will appeal to most.
Now, THAT'S A BUNDLE!
Great PS3 bundle options:
- Uncharted and COD4
- COD4 and DMC4
- UTIII and R&CF:TofD
- Uncharted and a 50 dollar PSN card.
Now, THAT would sell!!!
Bought me a Motorstorm for AU$25 bucks a few days ago...
Resistance selling for AU$50 at the moment.
These are ( pre-owned copies ).
should give an online game to enjoy the online world.PLAY B3YOND!
