PlayStation 3 platform holder Sony has told MCV that it has nothing to say concerning the possibility of a PS3 hardware bundle to accompany the upcoming release of Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
r u gay? i mean its alright if u r, i hav nothin against that
@Patchstation 3 ?? dude get a life
release the bundle of uncharthed 2 sony ;)
nah i dont think thatll affect him. Find a pen*s
might have peni5 bounce for for Patchstation since it was not put in for LATD. Oh wait, no sixaxis.
LOL MS didn't have the guts to put an exclusive in... they put a multiplatform instead... Sony will be smart enough to just do the U2 bundle with 250gig HDD. Or do both!
Don't hold your breath though...
i've heard about this somewhere im pretty sure there well be one though
Yeah, it's highly likely.
Its Gonna Be Awesome. Press Agree
Honestly at 299 they dont need it as much to win the holidays. But if they did it would be a great boost.
I am curious how Sony will respond to Microsoft's newly announced $399.99 250GB Modern Warfare 2 bundle: MW2 limited edition 360 with 250GB HDD Extra controller MW2 basic edition Considering how little the effect was from lowering the price yet again for their console, this bundle seems a move possibly from desperation to try and convince the public 360 is a better value than the PS3 at a comparable price. You can be guaranteed Sony's 250GB L.E. bundle will come with a game (maybe a Fat Princess voucher) as well, but what game?
I don't know... Are non exclusive titles ever in bundles? It's Sony's own developed games 99% of the time.
@snoogins so basically a company who creates a bundle is desperate. So Sony was desperate when they made the Metal Gear 4 bundle? Do you think that MS and activision only agreed to make the bundle after the announcement of the slim? please this is a normal move for the holiday season. It was clearly planned before the announcement of the slim, so it would have happened anyways. Also, Sony will make their Bundles as well.. lets see if you call them desperate then. That said, I dont think Sony needs a bundle this Holiday season.. their slim and the $300.00 price is more than enough to push hardware. If anything MS should lower the price at least $50.00 and/or make live free. I dont see this bundle pushing hardware for MS. peace
You make a very good point, Dread, and I wouldn't be so blind and ignorant to claim Sony or any other company hasn't had to make desperate sacrifices in a heavily competitive market as well. Holiday bundles are inevitable indeed and I didn't consider that the season is approaching.
It might not of been decided b4 the ps3 slim. youll be suprised how fast deals can be pushed through with money involved. MS would of went straight to work on how to counter the lower price PS3 slim. I think theyll have something else up their sleeve along with halo odst. MS will have a good holiday period. Better than PS3. Who knows
I don't need another PS3. I already have a couple of them. As for MW2, I can't wait to get my hands on that game despite the idiocy at Activision.
Sony should give that away to MS. They have their own bundles coming, that would be UC2, FFXIII and GT5 (and I hope a R&C bundle). MW2 in a bundle won't have as big of an impact for the PS3 as it will for the 360. Its actually a great deal for the 360 with two controllers and a bigger HDD - if you plan on buying a new 360. But I don't see pulling in the crowds who would usually look at the bottom line. 100K in the bundle won't really make an impact, the majority will be (MW2) disk sales anyway. A bundle shouldn't be more then $349, IMO (even though $399 with bigger HDD, second controller and game might yield the better value). I'm on a boycott of Activision, but that damn MW2 is very tempting...
Usually when Sony won't comment on something or say they don't know about that then it is true.
i'll be the first to say I was wrong about HHG calling it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only person that said this would happen was him. I clowned him for it like all of us did. I don't know how effective a Modern Warfare 2 bundle would be. Do you really think there are that many people that want Modern Warfare 2 but don't own either of the next-gen (or current-gen depending on what you call it) consoles? I don't.
Meh, they just need a Gran Turismo 5 bundle and they're set.
IW's community manager gives the impression the 360 is the only platform they are developing for, the complete lack of love the PS3 and PC get.
That 360 bundle is sexy though. If would mind parting with $400 for it. Where can it be preordered though?
Dont mix turn like MW2 with de Ps3 stick wid U2 and GT5 I dont think multiplats should b bundled wid "the console of choice" its given the wrong message (in my opinion) The GT5 bundle alone will shift a hell of a lotta consoles
It's the Microsoft "trying to fool you into believing this game is 360 exclusive" ad treatment that RE5 got. Advertising it only for the 360, only showing at Microsoft events, getting a custom console, etc. Probably can't legally happen for Sony at this point. Beatles Rock Band is going through the same thing, but it didn't get a console bundle. Doesn't even show a Nintendo or Sony logo at the end of the commercial, only 360.
Sony doesn't generally do this with multiplatform games...its always big exclusives, be it 1st or 3rd party (motorstorm and MGS4 for example this generation)... the fact that MS partnered with Activision for this doesn't really mean anything in terms of 'who is desperate'...although it is a little strange that they wouldn't bundle their system with something you can only play on the 360, right?...I would have figured an ODST bundle before this, although there already was a Halo 3 bundle and limited console...so whatever... the 250gb $399 or $350 PS3 is all but confirmed to be with uncharted 2 next month...with rumors of a FFXIII bundle for japan later this year, and the possibility of a GT5 bundle as well...thats how Sony does it...thats how they always have...MS could do this too if they had more big exclusives coming this year...har har...sort of kidding; i promise...
Meh Sony should just leave that to M$ and IW. They should just concentrate on bundling their own exclusives. GT5 and Uncharted 2 bundles will attract more people in my opinion.
Uncharted 2 would sell more than MW2? Are you delusional young monkey? GT5 wouldn't even have the selling power of MW2 in my honest opinion. Modern Warfare sold several million of copies and whilst GT5 is a franchise title, I don't think a racing simulator has the same mass appeal as an arcade online shooter that's probably become the best known franchise this generation
Speaking logically and being one that greatly anticipates Uncharted 2, I agree that MW2 would interest more people. As amazing as I found the first Uncharted, it just didn't catch on among gamers as I felt it should and I don't know if people will actively look into UC2, no matter how beautiful or perfect it is. However, I disagree that MW2 would do as well as GT5 (though PS3+360 sales combined it's possible). The reason I say this is because Gran Turismo is the most popular console racing sim in the world (the Japanese and European markets LOVE IT!) and GT5p sold a significantly larger amount than GT4p with only a fraction of the install base. The franchise and price point of the PS3 would really push a lot of hardware.
MW2 will sell anyway. It won't move consoles (BTW: It makes more sense on the PS3 given its big focus on online and the free PSN). GT5, UC2 and FF-XIII, however, will move consoles.
GT3 sold a total of 14.9 million on just the PS2 alone. If I were Sony, I would choose the GT5 bundle over the MW2 bundle ANY DAY. Not to mention, every single Gran Turismo game has sold over 10 million each. While COD4 only sold 5 million on the PS3.
Meus Learn how to read and comprehend man. He didn't say it will sell more he said they would attract more. I happen to agree with him. COD is alread a well know franchise. It has it's own fanbase already so teh upside is low. Uncharted however is a new ip and the first one did great so there is much more room for new gamers to jump on board. Seriously after like what 6 or 7 COD games if you haven't jump on board yet they you never will. I personally will be skipping cod mw 2 until i can get it used cause i want to fvck activision and their douche leader.
