Doesn't seem like much of a saving to me. However, I'm sure a funky bundle box will draw the eye of the casual gamer just looking for some GTA-goodness, which is the whole point, I suppose.

Anyone spotted any 360 bundles yet (not retail-created ones, obviously; actual bundles made by Microsoft)?

decapitator3207d ago

There are some online bundles but nothing official just yet. Also, the PS3 bundles will not be available at launch. Probably a month or so later.

Decap. It says May 1st which is a couple of days after the launch.

Anyway, if MS has no bundle of their own, then this is big. A better tactic than just cutting the price of the console because it re-associates PlayStation with GTA.

If microsofts got no bundels and these ones are real' sony just destroyed microsofts last chance at staying in the console war' geow could help 360 but if R2 or KZ2 blow our minds then its all in the bag.

LightningPS33208d ago (Edited 3208d ago )

Microsoft is pretty much calling out Sony to do something desperate.

They keep revealing their plan,

"we will price cut around GTA IV"

"we will market around GTA IV".

"We have the complete GTA IV experience".

"We will own GTA IV launch"

"We will steal the PS2 fanbase"

Don't you think Sony listened to these things?

whoelse3207d ago

Doesn't matter what Microsoft does, Sony will benefit the most from GTA IV.

Corrupt3207d ago

It is a smart business decision.

Alcohog3207d ago

All those quotes point to desperation on Microsoft's side!

Bathyj3207d ago

It is a saving, about 70 bucks, but they should have made it buy the PS3 and the game is free. Thats a lot harder deal to ignore and like someone else said, it says GTA and PS go together, but most Aussies know this already anyway.

Oui, Oui, Oui.
