PS3 Bundle Includes MGS4, Killzone 2

Kotaku: Normally, hardware bundles are a spotty affair. A game you don't really want, or two games, one you kinda want, one you just do not want. But this bundle, on sale at Best Buy next Sunday, looks great!

Sent in by a Best Buy employee, and confirmed by other BB employees, it's an 80GB PS3 bundled with copies of two of the biggest games on the system: Metal Gear Solid 4 and Killzone 2. All that for the asking price of a standard PS3, $400.

The story is too old to be commented.

this makes me want to buy another ps3!!!

shingo3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

They're basically giving you those 2 games (the biggest games on the system) for free!

Best bundle ever!

lociefer3031d ago

omg i predict this bundle will go out of stock in like 2 hours, i know ill buy it and i already have a ps3, need one in the living room

Knightrid8083031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

That's one freaking hell of a bundle. I have those 2 games already but those who buy this will no doubt be very happy.

FamilyGuy3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

TWO big name exclusive in the "cheap" bundle?

Merry Christmas in July b!tches!

That bundle would be a hard thing to argue against. "But honey, it's got TWO of the main games i wanted one for!" "Fine, but you can't buy any extra games for..."

sunil3031d ago

off to the store ! :)

Trebius3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

This is just a genius move...why not bundle the PS3 with the 2 most visually appealing and front running games. Now everyone that gets a ps3 is SURE to see the work of GG and Konami.

Im surprised it was not MGS4 and Uncharted...since they're both great visually and great games of the earlier releases...but then I realized Uncharted doesnt have an online community, so Killzone is the best candidate.

Jaces3031d ago

It's like they were selling the PS3 for $299.99...cept technically you'd be paying for the two games.

Not much difference anyway seeing how you'd buy those even after you bought yourself a PS3, sometimes I wonder if people even see how great a deal like this is.

Most go nope and say it MUST have a $299.99 tag on it or I'm not getting a good deal.

ABizzel13031d ago

WOW. This is by far the best bundle for hardcore gamers who want a PS3. Two amazing games, easily top 5 PS3 games, and easily top 10 games this gen.

Killjoy30003031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

It will be called the Playstation Network Bundle and will include the following -

- Warhawk
- Killzone 2
- LittleBigPlanet
- Official Sony Bluetooth headset
- Free 1 year subscription to Qore
- 2 vouchers for 2 PS Store games of the consumer's choice.
- Free 50 bucks for use with Playstation Home content.
- 120 GB HDD.
- 2 movie vouchers and 1 free rent off the video store.

All priced at $499. Best bundle ever, and an excellent converter for those that are avid online players that game on Xbox Live.

Lol but that would be like impossible. But I'm just saying this is what I would buy, as I play online a lot, and many others do to.

Poopface the 2nd3031d ago

Thats the best one ive seen so far.

BattleAxe3031d ago

That is the best bundle I've ever heard of!

Kain813031d ago

... Sony will clear the shelves for sure...a PS3slim annoncement will come soon

commodore643031d ago

I have to admit, this is a great bundle.

Now all they need to do, is lower the price for this bundle by $100 and the sales will surely pick up.

whoelse3031d ago

It's like they're trying to sell of all their stock for something slim?

LaChance3031d ago

This bundle actually makes me want a PS3 though i'd probably trade in Killzone 2 and get Valkyrie Chronicles at the place.

y0haN3031d ago

"That’s a great bundle especially for gamers looking to buy a PS3."

Erm, no sh!t? It's not like you can NOT buy the PS3 with it??

N4realGMRZ3031d ago

Who ever dosnt have a PS3 there is now NO excuse not to have one ...this is one of the best bundles i have ever seen and totally worth every Penny!! Go now and buy this! Long Live Gaming!

ape0073031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

what's inside the next ps3 bundle????

WELL BAM THERE IT IS.....

ID IR A G 0 N3031d ago

its sad that this seems to be the only way ps3 can sell its exclusives.

Oner3031d ago

So let me get this straight...it's sad for Sony to do it but not sad for MS to do it with Gears, Halo, Forza etc etc etc? Way to go Brainiac...

ape0073031d ago

it's sad,even this amazing bundle couldn't stop your fanboyism

sad XD

Boody-Bandit3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

It's sad that you have nothing better to do with your time then troll gaming sites.

On topic:
I was going to wait for a price drop but this bundle is very tempting even though I already own Killzone 2.

Question. Does anyone know if you can use the same PSN ID on 2 separate PS3's if only one is online at a time?

ID IR A G 0 N3030d ago

it weird that all u idiots can assume im a fanboy. the only game i have really played online for the last 3 months is killzone. i just think its funny to watch ps3 and fanboys get their panties in a bunch, since your all so sensitive. i just dont see that reaction from xbox fanboys (unless you bash halo), but you could bash the color of the ps3 and the fanboys will attack.

im a fan of video games.... maybe you morons should join me

Boody-Bandit3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

I didn't think you could top the ignorance of your first post. I was wrong. I keep forgetting how young and or ignorant some N4G members are but hey ID IR A G 0 N thanks for reminding me.

BTW I checked your post history and I am the first to admit I am wrong when proven wrong. You are not a troll. You are just ignorant.

ID IR A G 0 N3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

you know damn well if i posted in here that this was the greatest bundle ever, all you ps3 fanboys would eat it up. i would have 50 agrees and some more bubbles. the only reason you consider me ignorant is because i dont agree with you.

i dont know what your problem is??? i read your profile and you seem to feel the same about fanboys as me.

having the tag brutally honest you should be able to admit that ps3 exclusives dont sell well, and for that fact need to be bundled. not mgs, but killzone was a flop. i know it sold 1 million copies, but i would love to see the percentage of people who returned kz within the first month(not me). if you have been online for kz lately you would realize thats its pretty much a dying community.

i dont seem to remember xbox bundling gears or halo?? i know that there were special xbox editions for both, but i know the halo edition didnt come with a game(cause i own it). xbox exclusives sell well without bundles.

Boody-Bandit3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

I checked your post history and you contribute nothing to this site but ignorance and negativity. Which you keep proving with each and every response.

DevastationEve3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

It's true, the hardcore exclusives only appeal to the hardcore gamer. If they bundle it with a console then at least it will sell even if the owner doesn't want to play it.

BTW, the Halo 3 bundle didn't actually come with the game. Which is GREAT, since it proves that all of its sales were from people who went out and bought the game.

JHUX3030d ago

Yeah when I first saw this I was thinking they might as well of just put the price tag @ 299.99 which would probably bring in more people to buy it, and then it's pretty much a given that anyone who enjoys gaming will buy those 2 games..
This is a great deal no doubt, but there are still some people out there like someone already mentioned that will still just look at the 400 dollar price tag (even though simple math will show them this is an amazing deal).

The Dude3030d ago

And it still wont sell :)

Jaces3030d ago

I get your point but you don't need to be so blunt as to assume that every exclusive is a flop if they're bundled.

There's no point in trying to compare PS3 exclusives and how well they sell with the 360's seeing how the top sellers are pretty much nothing but FPS's.

The 360 has an FPS fanbase to it, so anything with a gun, and blood they'll practically eat up. It's a no brainer.

On the other hand, KZ2 did have a great release and has sold quite a lot...so I really don't see where "flop" comes into play. Don't forget that Killzone had to re-cleanse themselves after the first one failed back in the PS2 days.

jaysquared3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

Nice bundle smells like desperation to me specially bundling in KZ2 with it. I bet you Sony thought they were going to sell over 3 million of KZ2 so they made all these game disc that hasn't moved so what else do you do to a game that doesn't sell that well? Give it away for free! Might as well when its just going to sit in their warehouses...

I bet you in a couple of years Sony fanboys are going to be claiming how KZ2 sold more than 3 million copies but they will never acknowledge how it was bundled with the PS3! Lol same thing happen with Motorstorm..

@jaces- last time I checked Gears 1 or 2 isn't a FPS and that has sold over 7 million copies. GTA4 sold better on the 360.. Madden, FIFA, NBA games sell better on the 360, Ninja Gaiden has sold over a million so has Halo Wars, Fable 2 sold over a million too.. So yeah there goes your arguement of 360 owners just being FPS fans..

Jaces3030d ago

Hey you little twat, the open zone is ---->

jaysquared3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

Hey above me dont get your pannies in a bunch! its just video games! Calm down I didn't disrespect your girlfriend/boyfriend or did I?

"On the other hand, KZ2 did have a great release and has sold quite a lot...so I really don't see where "flop" comes into play. Don't forget that Killzone had to re-cleanse themselves after the first one failed back in the PS2 days."

it was labeled a flop because every PS3 fanboy on the internet said it was going to sell 3 million copies the first week, completely stop 360s sales, was as big as the second coming of Jesus christ, labeled as the Halo killer, will bring tears to 360 fanboys eyes etc etc..Of course none of that came true which wasn't the games fault it was the PS3 fanboys. The game itself is good but not great. Also if you look at overhype in the dictionary you will have KZ2 right next to it..

People say that Halo3 is over hype which I tend to agree with but over 10 million copies sold and still the one of the top games on Xbox live 2 years later.. I hate Halo and do think its overhyped but its hard to give the "overhype" stamp on a game that many people still enjoy.

Yes I called Halo 3 overhyped and i'm a 360 fan.. 360 fan bash me now!

@ Bootybandit-

Yes Halo3 and Fable 2 was bundled with the 360 but that was after halo3 sold 10 million copies and had been out on the market for more than 2 years. Fable 2 being an RPG game and we all know no RPG games sell unless it has the title Final Fantasy!!

All we are saying its sad that the for sure 3 million + seller in its first week, best FPS in console history with the best graphics as proclaimed by PS3 fans is now being given away for free!

boodybandit3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

Halo 3 and Fable II are currently being bundled with the 360.
http://www.bestbuy.com/site...

Both the PS3 and 360 bundle is excellent. I don't see why people have to downplay either for any reason.

Jaces3030d ago

The hype was a flop yes, but the sales, game, and reviews were nothing but great.

No need to go raging into the PS3 forums. Bundles are a great deal, whether they come with games like LBP or KZ2.

It's not an attempt to sell more games, it's an attempt to sell more units. Seeing how the PS3 slim is just around the corner, it makes sense with bundles like these.

The Dude3030d ago

They should bundle InFamous with Little Big Planet that would be the ultimate ps3 bundle.

this budle seem's to be the competitor of the xbox 360 elite game of the year bundle with halo3 and fable 2.

arsenal553031d ago

Except killzone2 and mgs4 are actually good games!

ZING!!!!!

FamilyGuy3031d ago

But the thing is, non-gamers even know of these two games (commercialized) where as Fable would be unknown to the simple male 17-33 that just likes to shoot things in games. And people interested in Halo 3 probably already own 360s.

siliticx3031d ago

yeah.... you get a + for the "ZING!!!"

Marquis_de_Sade3031d ago

Familyguy, the same applies to the PS3, I purchased a PS3 for MGS4, as did many others - just like Halo 3 and the 360. Killzone 2 and Fable 2 are probably of equal renown as well.

FamilyGuy3030d ago

I respectfully disagree with that statement.
Killzone 2 is not very popular but it is more known than Fable to the casual crowd. My opinion on that is really genre based and seeing ads.
