Do new PS3 bundles mean Slim is coming soon?

Recently, Best Buy had the PS3 paired with Wall-E and LittleBigPlanet for $400. But the MGS 4 and Killzone 2 bundle is definitely designed to tempt more hardcore gamers who, say, might just own an XBox 360 already and are looking for a Blu-ray player.

Clearly, such bundles are designed to move systems--and they probably will move. The big question is whether this is part of a concerted effort by Sony to clear the channel of "old" consoles to make room for the potential release of the rumored PS3 Slim, which many hope will cost $300. A recent report suggests that a new PS3 may arrive as soon as this summer.

well if you think about it, yes. they have to clear the channel and sell PS3s over the summer. the bundles are a sweet deal if you ask me.

Nice to see Cnet making the same extrapolation as the previous article that had people lofting their pitchforks.

thnx. bubble for u sir!

Vortigaunt2963d ago

I think BestBuy is just trying to get rid out of PS3's and copies of Killzone 2 since apparently nobody ever buys them.

This is called CLEARANCE, geniuses.

@Vortin

It's easy to understand why you have only TWO bubbles.

On topic: KZ2+MGS4 bundle is the best ever. Two epic games for free.

FamilyGuy2962d ago

It's ALSO possible that great game bundles like these are how sony plans on selling 13million PS3s by the end of this fiscal year.

Seriously, i don't see how anyone could think that this isn't just as good as say a $50 price cut.

Greywulf2962d ago

The PS3 is doomed fool... stay in line! Its been doomed for 3 years!

RememberThe3572962d ago

That is the best bundle ever. If your looking to pick up a PS3 this is the bundle to get.

So let me get this straight Vortigaunt ~ Sony does a bundle and it's "clearance" (as in no one buys them) so does that also apply to the 360 with

Forza 360 Bundle ~ http://www.google.com/searc...

Gears 360 Bundle ~ http://www.google.com/searc...

Halo 360 Bundle ~ http://www.google.com/searc...

Let's see the amazing thoughts you have on that one, brainiac....

STK0262962d ago

well Oner, it's obvious isn't it? Sony bundles great games with their console because it's not selling while MS is bundling games with their 360 because MS is such a nice company and they care abouit their users. Silly you, forgetting about the double standard when it comes to the X360 and the PS3.

IDK, but yes a PS3 slim will be coming out soon and I`ll be buying one.

Leogamer2962d ago

Can't wait for the slim. I'm getting tired of opening all my windows in my room just so I can play my 60gig PS3, if you know what I mean.

As for the slim, at least it'll fit better in my room.

Carl14122962d ago

I know right, it makes the heat in my room unbearable =[

I will very possibly be buying one, depending on price point and release date.

StanLee2962d ago

You know I'm one of those who really hope there isn't a PS3 Slim on the way. In 3 years there have been so many SKUs. I really feel like the PS3 doesn't have an identity. To introduce a all new designed SKU just adds to the confusion. The PS3 needs to find its identity with the mass consumer.

CryWolf2963d ago

Sony really need a new Marketing Management Team cause I haven't seen any ads on TV about ps3 games or the ps3 in general

RememberThe3572962d ago (Edited 2962d ago )

The console is $400. When it gets to a mass market price, we will see more of the PS3.

If you think Sony is just sitting on their hands... well, your wrong. They are making move behind the scenes.

mdkgod432963d ago

ps3 slim is not set to release untill end of this year after they show it at the Tokyo game show

cranium2962d ago

You seem pretty confident in that statement. Or are you just speculating?
