Two new bundles available in Europe soon. The Movie Pack, including 300, Spiderman 3 & Casino Royale on 19th March, and the GT5 Pack, including Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on 29th March. Both are 40Go and will cost a price of 399€. Boxarts revealed.
Now that Sony are the sole high-def movie format their are going to be a lot more people who decide to get a blu-ray player. Play.com reported a massive rise in sales of Blu-ray player sales after the Toshiba hd-dvd pull out. Sony make it easy for them, get a PS3 with movies in one pack. Clever.
The weird thing is that the Playstation 3 alone already costs 399€ in Europe... :/
Both are 40Go and will cost a price of 399€. Boxarts revealed. Shouldn't it say 40Gb? Hehe I know how it is with a word nazi in every thread. :P
someone here said that this bundle would come. sony should make a gta iv bundle 2 later on.
So when are you going to bring the white consoles to Europe Sony? 2009? 2010? 2011? NEVER??? I wanted a white PSP to match my 360, it even is mentioned on the Dutch Sony website, but they're only available in Japan (as is the white PS3 also). Since summer last year no white PSP has been seen outside of Japan. So needed to import one because Sony is delaying forever all their stuff, hardware and software/games....
in germany the white psp is at least for 1.5 years available. i have bought one, so i know it. i am waiting for a white ps3 also. have a white + black psp, and a want a white + black ps3 (for me and girlfriend, lol). you right, thigs take time, but when they get released everyone is happy. by the way i imported the ps3 from japan, and i dont regress it.
you live in the US
Achira.... I mean the PSP Slim in ceramic white, not the old fat one. I wanted 64MB Ram, Skype, less heavy etc...
Just upgraded my psp to the slim, and the white as well as the black has been available in the UK since September last year. I would of thought that if the UK has it, then the rest of the EU would also, I could be wrong in that assumption though. You really can't get it where your from Mart?
Nope Scooby, In the Netherlands for sure not. UK you maybe have some import there then. Same as the white PS2, it's in USA but still not here. But well I got my Slim ceramic white and got the O and X functions normal again (Japanese are switched) with making it having custom firmware and region Europe on fake I got Skype and GO!Messenger also. So I'm fine now. But not thanks to Sony, but thanks to Dark Alex :P
In UK the white is available under normal retail, not import. When I upgraded my old psp to the new slim in the UK store "Game", I had the option of black or white, no silver however (which i wanted, but I believe the silver is available in Germany). Would be nice if Sony could make all variations of the PSP available in all countries. Hopefully something they will sort out soon.
I thought Mart lives in the US?
White PSP slim is in the UK, so they are out there.
... because now instead of just a PS3 and joypad, you get 3 movies thrown or an extended demo thrown in for free. Better than nothing, and it costs nothing extra. Personally though, I'm more interested in the Ratchet + Uncharted package, except that I'm waiting for the new controllers to come out before I buy a PS3. In 2 months I'll be in HK, so I'll probably be able to pick some of those new (white) controllers up over there, for half the price they would cost over here.
So is the PS3 alone likely to drop in price at the same time? Fingers crossed...
Sure that the movie pack is very interesting for anyone wants to have a bluray drive.
yep, sad they don't want to include Dual Shock 3 in Europe :(
Then it will be a great GIFT for GT fans, and PS3 sales will sky rocket! =) Though i wish, MGS4 80GB bundle would be also released in europe..
Nice bundles there, I can see these attracting a few sales, the movie bundle especially. Nice job Sony. It's a shame they're not releasing the Dual Shock 3 over here yet; like how hard can it be to make a couple million and distribute them?
just call me ummmmm "surfer girl" edit: crap that one is taken.....ok, "gamesblow" then
That one is actually worse than the first.
dualshock 3 is not officialy in europe, but if you want, you can buy it with no problems. i live in europe and i bought DS3 before christmas from ordinary online store.
GT is just too big a franchise in europe not to ^^. if you want proof that i Knew... look below "Sevir04 - 22 hours ago PM Track Ignore 14 - Well People you have to understand Sony isn't treating the European Market like crap. every market has their own agenda. this is why Sony Japan Got DMC4 bundles and Hotshot's Gold Bundles and Gundam Mosou bundles. Destination Station is a US event. for US retaliers and that Happenes every year. So you cant expect US to dictate what EUROPE and UK Does. after all Sony is a big company with Different entities and their own Presidents, They have the freedom to articulate what ever plans that best suit the market. " in EU and UK, Gran Tourismo is perhaps the best Selling Franchise their and from what i've seen, for the austrailian market, which is also a Pal region a GT bundle is Planned..." also keep in mind that There are no 80gig configs in The Pal markets. on 40gigs and if you're lucky 60gigs, with that being said they'd have to place it on the cheaper model because they no longer mauafature the 60gig in Pal regions So pleae you Euro Breathins, sit tight and wait for a proper anouncement. Sony america Knows that The PS3 while it's gaining moment needs to be selling much better, Over here in the states MGS is perhaps bigger so a concentration of that game is needed for the Market to out sell it's competition." and expect the GT bundle to Hit sometime in March."
Very nice... GT is great. Good for the europeans.
Ace-Jury - 23 hours ago PM Track Ignore9 - GT5 Prologue Bundle! Not sure if it is news but im almost certain the Europeans will get a GT5 Bundle very soon. We are getting them here in Australia soon, I know this cause i work for Playstation and have been sent GT5 bundle advertising to give to stores. Edit: Although we will be getting the GOW PSP Bundle so it would be weird that the europeans dont. We generally get similar treatment, both being PAL territories.
ps3 PWNAGE IS UPON us
At least have the decency to bundle the full game and not the demo lol. i want the 80gb mgs4 bundle with a dual shock 3 packed in sony. America flips the bird at the PS3 and you give them the superior console and bundle. i dont know whats in the water at SCEE but they need to up their game. 80gb Dualshock 3 MGS4 PAL Sell me a console sony.
you do know that Europe loves GT right? like 5M a pop for every major title in Europe. so this is bound to move units.
What about MGS4 pack in Europe ? Anybody knows ?
i dunno but i say its pretty sad when sonys "free" bundled game is actually nothing other than a demo.
$hit, if more demos had what this game is going to have i'd stick to demos. Seriously though, you think it's just a demo? That's lame.
peple these days just cant find anything better to do with themself. Home support, 16 player online races, No lag, ggorgeous graphics, 1080p visuals, 5.1 audio, GT-TV, 60 cars, 10 trackes with reverseable. and you're complaining. forza's demo didn't even have a 1% of what was listed, But hey.. It's Sad for Sony. GT5:Prologue at this stage already out paces the competition so it's only natural you would Spin it how ever you want.
and some of you were complaining of no love from sony in Europe. For shame!
the Europe PSstore is a joke compared to the Japanese one, and eventhe American one i had to wait AGES for Everyday Shooter i really wish Sony would launch some games in Europe first as an apology
not european exlusive, Australia gets it too
that movie pack is a nice tactic should get more non-gamers into games
