Available from May 1st for a strictly limited time is the Playstation 3 GTA IV Pack containing the 40GB Playstation3, a SIXAXIS controller and a copy of the legendary game...
Hmmm i wonder why it isn't available on the 29th
maybe because it's Australia.
in that advert but i guess sony are adult enough not to mention the 360 directly (only gamers who know both consoles will understand the references),same cant be said for microsoft im afraid. theyve mentioned ps3 at every opportunity microsoft take note have a bit of class the 'what you can do on 360 while waiting for the 5min instal time on ps3 was the lowest i think microsoft have sunk to'
This is why I think that informed consumers will choose the ps3 if they are yet to upgrade to a next gen system. The word "free". The australian economy is looking good on paper but for your average worker it isnt that great. So the word free used in an article this much really holds some weight. Microsoft cant write an add similar and i think its going to cost them. Sure the ps3 is more expensive, but it works and everything is included out of the box. It makes it sound like a better deal than it is, and its a good deal.
agreed,but theres also the references to-wifi no need for additional ADAPTORS,blu-ray winner of FORMAT wars,more exclusive games especially highlighting mgs4 which we all know microsoft themselves wanted remember when a representative was at a presentation for mgs4 saying its an amazing game they'd love it on 360 and many insiders were speculating he was there to try and tie up a deal for the game but nomatter how hard they tried they couldnt. the digs are obvious to us but not to a casual gamer its like sony are saying we could call out 360 but we wont go by names unlike microsoft have done
Microsoft really made themselves look like losers with that recent article. Sony are classy. Hell, put a 360 next to a nice shiny ps3 and tell me which one stinks of class? Yup. You know it, I know it, and everyone else knows it. On a side note, DAMN I CANT WAIT FOR THIS GAME!!!
yanikins this game gonna kick ass will we finish it before mgs4 tho? see you online dude be on my side in the turf wars lol
Can i finish it before Haze? And can i finish that before MGS? GTA4 isnt a finisher for me. Its all about running around killing sh!t. Def add me to psn tho. I'm always up for a good blood bath.
that not a bad deal considering that you save 70 Dollars. Oh and it seems that Sony finally let the cat out of the bag with the bundle after denying it for the past several weeks
I expect this bundle to be confirmed for EU territories in the near future
i love how its making the letter sound like as if killzone 2 is definitely coming this year
I'm guessing that it's looking promising for KZ2 to be out this year then. They really must have been crunching down on this game. can't wait. Nice to see a bundle for Australia. I'm imagining it'll sell fairly well considering some of the things happening with the XBOX360 over there.
Why doesn't it come with a DUALSHOCK 3?
they're just getting rid of the sixaxis and seriously it's not a bad controller. ill probably buy a couple for better battery life and the cheap price.
What Sony needs to do now is make a GTA bundle for NA. If that happens then the PS3 will definitely have a huge advantage.
Nice. And I needed a new avatar too!
HAHAH AONLY ON N4G AND O TH ENET IS A game bundle news the ps3 budle will affect sales buy %0 dfac only on this site with sonyfanboys do they think game bunbdles meananyhting advertisment is the key and gta 4 has been advertised in europe as a 360 exclusive haha wait till thge sale results come in =)
is the best version
Does anybody understand what this kid just said? I know I can't.
Wait a sec. how are we saving 70$. PS3 in store is around 678 + the game is 114$. So that makes a total of = 792. This package is 750, Australia is saving 42$ not 70$:|
Savings of 70 after tax? I don't know.
Think you're missing something. The news piece specifically says RRP - recommended retail price. RRP of PS3 is $699 and GTAIV's RRP is $120. That is a saving of $70 RRP. Of course, retailers can set their price to whatever they want. Guess the same logic also applies when they set their price for the PS3 GTAIV bundle. I'm sure retailers will go out cheaper than $749.
damn your aussie money is confusing as hell
Yeah, 100 cents in a dollar. A thousand dollars in a grand. It can boggle the mind. Dont even try to tackle our metric system.
Cmon sony you can do better than this DS3 80gb ps3 is what i want in my bundles. Obsolete controller or feature gimped console just aint gonna fly.
i dont think our market is big enough to support the two sku's. It sucks. Although it is a slight reward for being an early adopter. Hopefully when the prices start coming down, the AU 60GB sku feature set will become standard.
so u actually pay 700 dollars for ps3 when its 400 here?
Im thinking of getting a new one for my living room. Just going to import one from the US. Seeing as the autralian dollar is worth about 94 US cents last time i bothered looking.
We also pay US$ 95 for a DS3 and even more for ps3 games, up to US $115 for a new release PS3 game.
