The new bundle is set to include an 80GB PLAYSTATION 3 console, along with Terminator Salvation, due for release tomorrow, Friday 12th June 2009, and a copy of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines on Blu-ray.
I sense lots of copies of Terminator Salvation in trade in game stores now! Might even have more copies on the shelves when the 360 was giving away Forza 2!
This is a terrible game. I rented it to try and get the platinum but I couldn't stomach a 2nd play through. This is a terrible bundle, I mean at least you could give them T2.
Rise of the machines despite the hate was imo a pretty good movie. Way better than Terminator salvation. Terminator salvation game on the other hand is a joke
instead of forza 2....my store has like 2 copies... its should be lego jones/kung fu panda......and believe it or not mgs4 for the ps3........o and star wars the force for the 360....tons in stock...
lol, Didn't see this one coming. JOY
this is the dumbest bundle ever!
sure its a rubbsih game but maybe sony are using this as a game to get people hooked on trophies so they'll buy more games for the trophies.
Rise of the machines a good movie , and better than Salvation ? No way josé!
I mean lets hope they have focus groups... because I want to find the names of the participants. And shoot them. Salvation bundled with a PS3 for 900 dollars is a bad idea folks.
Um.... Er.... Wha? no way man, RotM sucked.
does sony WANT this bundle to sell? wtf is this!?
Not a bad idea really. Whenever a good blu ray movie comes out that has a corresponding game, they bundle them with a ps3 just for the heck of it. Spiderman 3 with the 40 gigs was good, though it didnt come with the game (bummer /s). Its a good way to get ppl more into blu ray at least.
Why that game?! There's so many other better choices. Gears run circles around this game. The game was just horrible. If you've played Gears and then played this, you'll be like "the f*** is this $hit?"
Bundled with 2 mediocre terminators that will really fly off shelves. (/sarc) T2 wouldve been a better choice
What a crappy bundle.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/go... this topic got no attention. http://n4g.com/NewsCom-3445...
Seriously...of all the games out there to pick from, they choose Terminator Salvation, one of the most panned games this generation. WHY?!?!?
Exactly...o_o; I like Sony but this is a rather dumb decision, considering the game was horrible.
Anyhow this is only a bundle, if your not concerned with sales and already got a PS3 then why care? I wonder if publishers and developers pay to have a certain game bundled? If that's the case, then this is just business.
kewlkat, that avatar is horrible looking. No offense. :) Oh, and I'm well aware of the fact I have a PS3. You continue to amaze me. Of allll the comments here, you chose mine. :)
Sorry but this bundle isnt that exciting. WTH Sony? this wont make PS3 fly out the shelves.
Yeah, I agree it's a questionable decision. I can only think that they are trying to capitalize on the new Terminator movie that's out? Although, it's been out for a while now... And based on what other ppl are saying on this thread, the game doesn't appear to be all that great. Who knows... maybe they are just trying to move some copies of both the game and the movie. I don't have any idea what kind of investment it takes on Sony's part to create these bundles. *shrug*
I guess they choose Terminator Salvation because they might have a deal with Warner Brothers. Movies studios are going to use the ps3 as the platform of choice to launch their downloadable movies and their games, you really can't go wrong. Edit: Check out the PSN video section, and go to the WB channel, Warner is showing mad love right now to PSN fans.
A Ghost Busters bundle would've been better!
Yeah a Ghostbuster bundle would make more sense IMO. Didnt Sony Pictures do the movies??? What better way to commemorate the 25th aniversary of Ghostbusters than a bundle with a brand new (well rated) game and the two flicks on Blu Ray?
I think they did....havnt seen them in a while
No one wants Terminator 3 lol, and no one certainly wants Salvation: THE GAME. T2 bundled by itself would already be better than this bundle.
I agree.... T2 alone would be better than T3+TS game
PS3s are going to be flying off the shelves....(end sarcasm)
worst bundle ever...the game is horrible and the movie is the worst of the series.
You obviously didn't see Salvation then.
i read on a site about 2 months ago there is a gamer that has EVERY PS3 and PSP bundle EVER put out.now thats cooooool!PLAY B3YOND!!!
kindy crappy bundle...but if you think about it they are trying to reach for the consumers...not the gamers only us would know about terminator really....but consumers will eat this up most likely.
it would had been better with a ghostbuster bundle plus marvel vs capcom 2 voucher!!!! Ah.
i say if theyd bundle a ps3 with porn instead of a bible then im sold.
It has all the porn you can ask for, the web browser,google plus the added bonus of no pop-ups and viruses ;)
'Can i have one of your finest Games Console on this Planet, Shop keeper?' 'Sorry, we have sold out of the PS3. Do you want a ChatBox 360?' 'NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!...But I'LL BE BACK!!!' ;-D
that was actually really funny XD XD
SONY PICTURES at the beginning. Suck on it, xbots. Just suck on it.
the PS3 has never sold out anywhere. The PS3 fanboys are as clueless as Sony.
never sold out huh? GEE i wonder what happened during November of 06.. OH YEAH it was no where to be found besides on ebay for $1,000+ Costco usually sells out of ps3.. although there's a mountain of xbox360 left. been living under a rock i see?
Fing Lame SONY you just dont get it.
actually they do get it.. high profile movie games are big shizz if you didn't already know, that's why (for example) Microsoft bundled Kung Fu Panda of course it's a horrible bundle for us gamers, in which case... get one of the many other PS3 bundles around, like the sexy inFamous one
...except that Kung Fu Panda was a Box Office hit, and the game got nice reviews too. :O
Sony can't cut the price,so they decide to give us a rubbish game instead.The terminator game is literally a piece of crap. This is by far the lamest bundle I have seen.
For reals, eh, good thing the darn trophies on it are easy as fck
wow... Where is my price cut.. Not buying 2nd PS3 till you do it SONY.
what a stupid bundle
Sony was banking on the Terminator Salvation movie being much better than it was and thus with a good movie it would drive the sales of this bundle. However since Terminator Salvation the Movie sucks, and Terminator Salvation the Game sucks.... I highly doubt that the crappy Terminator 3 will help move consoles. Sony, you were better off just not bundling the console at all and taking a meager $25 off the top and it would sell more than this pile of poo!
For reals, you finally make sense, go figure.
It's obvious they counted on a box office success , and who knows it might still have a decent impact .
Was actually pretty decent. The plot however was bad. The action in that movie was very intense though so that made up for the bad plot.
Whats next. Hannah Montana bundle, OMG...
Well they do it with the psp , and it would actually be a smart move , however crappy anything Hanna montana might be
Yeah but lets see how well that goes, im pretty sure little girls and kids will be playing their dsi's by the time Hannah montana bundle comes out. Pfff...cmon, sony needs to realize that its audience isnt little kids, but teens and adults.
There is a Hannah Montana PSP bundle in the works...seriously. http://www.joystiq.com/2009...
Yeah we all saw it at E3..........
Don't you think this is just another sign of a price drop? They re trying to exhaust the current stock before they announce a price drop and most likely a newer model. Anyway, that's my thought.
Oh yes, if I wanted my game console to fly off the shelves, I'd throw in a half-assed shooter to sweeten the pot.
...because bundling the PS3 with a shltty game nobody wants...and is worth about $10 trade-in at GameStop...is going to move a ton of units. Try again. :O
Indeed it sounds quite like a "dispatch". I mean this is probably the most commercial bundle they've come out with ever! Other than this was maybe LBP and Wall-E bundle, and that went well too! I'm can see this being a move to get the PS3 sold fast while the movie is hot. People, remember - here we are serious gamers informed on the world of games. We know scores, reviews, and they matter to us. But we aren't the majority of the consumers. The average consumer is almost blind to reviews, and only follows marketing. This bundle isn't aimed at hardcore gamers, its aimed at people that know next to nothing about videogame reviews, and just recognise that familiar name they enjoy. =)
HAHAHAHAHA FAIL!!! FAIL!!! FAIL!!! Is Sony that freaking dumb? http://www.metacritic.com/g... 4.5 out of 10 I guess they searched untill they found a game that has a rating that fits the POS3...
Sony not dumb but blind...After all we don't go call the blind dumb. They lost focus with their customers and fanbase. What I would do is bring back backwards compatibility and bundle God of War 1 and 2 since GoW3 will be releasing soon.
Don't worry, I won't. I bought the LBP pack and good thing was they had a special offer you got a 2nd game for free, so chose Motorstorm 2. For 399 Euro it was a good deal.
Heck even a Transformers 2 or Harry Potter 6 bundle would have been better :P
That's like givin away an "I'm with Stupid" T-shirt and "S#it Happens" bumper-sticker with the purchase of a Rolls-Royce.
