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!!!

shingo2967d ago (Edited 2967d ago )

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

Best bundle ever!

lociefer2967d 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

Knightrid8082967d ago (Edited 2967d 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.

FamilyGuy2967d ago (Edited 2967d 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..."

sunil2967d ago

off to the store ! :)

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.

Jaces2967d 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.

ABizzel12967d 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.

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 2nd2966d ago

Thats the best one ive seen so far.

BattleAxe2966d ago

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

Kain812966d ago

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

commodore642966d 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.

whoelse2966d ago

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

LaChance2966d ago

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

y0haN2966d 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??

N4realGMRZ2966d 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!

ape0072966d ago (Edited 2966d ago )

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

WELL BAM THERE IT IS.....

ID IR A G 0 N2966d ago

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

Oner2966d 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...

ape0072966d ago

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

sad XD

Boody-Bandit2966d ago (Edited 2966d 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 N2966d 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-Bandit2966d ago (Edited 2966d 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 N2966d ago (Edited 2966d 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-Bandit2966d ago (Edited 2966d 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.

DevastationEve2966d ago (Edited 2966d 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.

JHUX2966d 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 Dude2966d ago

And it still wont sell :)

Jaces2966d 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.
