At the Tokyo GameShow this year Sony introduced a new, smaller PS3 console. The new unit will come to North America in a 500GB and 250GB model. GameStop is now offering the larger 500GB console in the Assassin’s Creed III bundle.
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III is already one of this year’s most anticipated titles, now Sony has paired the game with the 500GB PS3 console at launch. The bundle (shown on the right) includes the 500GB PS3, a copy of Assassin’s Creed 3, One month of free Playstion Plus, a USB cable, AV cable and power cord for only $299.99. After you take out Assassin’s Creed III that makes the new PS3 only about $230, a pretty great deal. Both the console and the game are scheduled to launch on October 30, 2012.
