250GB PlayStation 3 slim Uncharted 2 bundle leaked

Engadget: "Well, what do we have here? No sooner do we get a 250GB Xbox 360 on the horizon does this image land in our tip box, showing a PlayStation 3 slim bundle for Uncharted 2 that just so happens to have that 250GB hard drive we spotted in the FCC last month. We've been able to independently confirm that it's legit, but beyond that we've got no clue when it'll be announced or any price / release date information. We wouldn't be surprised to see this hit stores in mid-October alongside Uncharted 2, but that's just a guess on our part. With any luck, SCE exect Kaz Hirai will be shedding some light at his Tokyo Game Show keynote next week -- c'mon Sony, don't keep us in the dark too long."

Update:

Update: Joystiq points us to this rumor from last week that Uncharted 2, Assassin's Creed II, and Gran Turismo 5 bundles are possibly slated for the UK in October for £299 ($494), just £50 more than the current 120GB model.

Update 2: We just got off the line with SCEA, who has denied the photo and told us quite plainly that there's no bundles being planned for America, but that the rep can't speak for other regions (e.g. Europe, Japan) -- not surprising, of course, you can't believe everything you read on the internet, right?

This is a must buy for new PS3 buyers.

OmarJA2987d ago

Definitely a great bundle & the best choice for those who consider the ultimate gaming console...

PROFIT2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

meaning same game every year for the past decade, different textures

just like rockband and guitar hero

yes GENERIC

Lifendz2987d ago

before I pick up my first 360.

Just kidding. Seriously though, anything involving Uncharted 2 is great. And yeah I haven't played the game. Sue me. I have full confidence in naughty dog after playing the first one.

BadboyCivic2987d ago

ive always love the 360 but i must say that Uncharted 2 is the most impressive game ive seen in some time...if this bundle is true then i will be getting it for sure.

vasilisk2987d ago

250GB+FIFA 09
250GB+Uncharted 2
250GB+Killzone 2+Infamous (end october)
250GB+Assassins Creed 2
250GB+GT5

Price for the above bundles: 350Euros while the 120GB will remain at 299Euros. Mark my words...

SeNiLe9112987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

and get this bundle if it had the first Uncharted bundled in as well since I haven't played the first one yet and will be once my Slim arrives in a few days.

leila012987d ago

The soundtrack is what I love the most about the game.
I'm thinking of trading my 80gb PS3 for this bundle. October 15 can't come fast enough.

Crimsonite2987d ago

its seems supersecret was right about the 250 gb ps3.wow he really is reliable.

gaffyh2987d ago

@1.5 - If Modern Warfare ISN'T a generic shooter, I don't know what is. It's the most generic shooter available, even Halo is less generic.

So supersecret was right, was right about the EA thing then?

hazeblaze2987d ago

It sounds like an awesome bundle for a lot of us b/c we know just how awesome the Uncharted franchise is... but for most ppl looking to buy a PS3, they'll have absolutely no idea why they should be interested in this bundle besides the fact that it has a 250GB hard drive.... BUT they will be satisfied as hell if they take the chance to buy it anyway, lol.

Still... I think a MW2 bundle might have made more sense from a brand recognition point of view. Maybe even a Rachet & Clank bundle.... OR a bundle w/ the first Uncharted AND MGS4, in fact that might have been the best one. That way they get two of the PS3's GREATEST games and then they want to go out and buy Uncharted 2 after they play the first one.

nbsmatambo2987d ago

it really doesnt matter wat size HD they send out...the fact that we can upgrade it wenevr is the best :D

dont wanna b paying xhorbitant prices for the individual xbox HD which only goes up to 120GB if im not mistaken?

OmarJA2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

Wow, Looks like this bundle got the 360 fan boys shaking & resorting to a multiplatform game.

morganfell2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

Well cooliris we don't need cool graphics onm our console because we don't need something to stare at when the unit dies. We let our cool graphics show up on the TV.

Yours is a very poor attempt at trolling because the facts stomp you into the dirt.

Uncharted 2 also doesn't need the voucher of another game in the box because it is some low res shake and bake game shoved out the door in the hopes of using it's name to make a quick buck.

It's obvious you are just feeling the anguish of getting a game in your bundle that is little more than a name ripoff whereas PS3 owners get the greatest graphical powerhouse in the history of consoles.

The PS3 also doesn't require a game like MW2 that is the epitome of mindless multiplayer. Run, gun, shoot, die, rinse repeat. ooh boy, that requires real imagination.

Now take your last gen machine and your thrown together game and limp on out of this thread before the lions devour the rest of your bubbles.

BrokenAnarchy2987d ago

I didn't know that an average game could win so many Best of E3 awards.

I guess having artwork on console makes it perform better too.. it is oh so important.

2987d ago
Traveler2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

CoolirisGB, Uncharted is far, far from an average game. It's one of the best games I have ever played. The second one looks even better.

Too bad I already own a PS3. This bundle would be perfect. Sigh...

Rob0g0rilla2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

"One controller? I hope this PS3 bundle doesn't cost $400."

Lol, well, MS's bundles doesn't include Wi-Fi, Blu-ray, or free online, all of which is A LOT MORE then one controller. You weren't hoping their bundle wouldn't cost $400, now were you?

Now that's value. An extra controller and a game won't make up for that.

LOL @ jleack

@1.25
"It's cheaper to buy the $300 Slim and Uncharted 2 and then find a deal for a HDD with much more space. "

$40 for a HDD over 250gbs? lmao what? That's really, really reaching. You couldn't even get a refurbished HDD for that price. Remember, it uses a 2.5" HDD, not a 3.5" HDD.

GrandTheftZamboni2987d ago

@coolirisGB

"No custom art" - you mean a print of how many letters?

This is a newly redesigned console. It's little bit more than 30-40 printed letters on a 4 year old console.

2987d ago
JonnyBigBoss2987d ago

I'm happy for you and I'll let you finish, but this Uncharted 2 bundle is one of the best bundles of all time.

womper2987d ago

now i got to get a second ps3!

Cobalt402987d ago

Uhoh, I think somebody that posts more against this item than posts for it is just showing how scared they are.

Miss Goblin2987d ago

Do you smell that? *sniff sniff* I think Colonel Sanders will be buy to snare a four piece meal soon.

SnuggleBandit2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

@ cooliris

ya well it may not be as poopular as halo 3 but it will be a damn BETTER game than ANYTHING that has released on your console! Would you rather buy a bundle with a game thats going to be one of the best this gen, or one thats really popular(Wii Sports)???

2987d ago
TheBand1t2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

Yep, a game that won the most awards at E3 and was rated Best Console Game at Gamescom is clearly overrated.

That was just pitiful.

IdleLeeSiuLung2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

To me these bundles aren't that great since it is just the regular console bundled with a game unless it is priced right. Why no special artwork, color or lettering on the console?

If I am dropping $350, I better damn well feel like I either get something very special (i.e. different) or it is of great value (in the bargain sense)!

There's an update,

"Update 2: We just got off the line with SCEA, who has denied the photo and told us quite plainly that there's no bundles being planned for America, but that the rep can't speak for other regions (e.g. Europe, Japan) -- not surprising, of course, you can't believe everything you read on the internet, right?"

I guess it was too good to be truth...

XLiveGamer2987d ago

A GT5 bundle have more chances than this one.

BrokenAnarchy2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

If you are buying a new PS3 and Uncharted 2 it would be $360 anyway. So you would be spending the same.

meepmoopmeep2987d ago

i love U2 and all but i think they should make a better one,

like the Cloud PS3, or the Yakuza one... you know have different colors and etching
give it a special treatment.

the MW2 one is at least distinct

i might get this one though

N2NOther2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

Hahaha. Wow. Where to start. If you think MW2 is thrown together you're an idiot. Plain and simple. I'll chalk it up to you exaggerating to make an erroneous point.

Last gen console? You act like the PS3 is LEAPS and BOUNDS better than the 360 in terms of graphics. I love my PS3 but it's really not.

Does Uncharted 2 look better? Yep. Does MW2 look bad? Not even a little bit. Thank God I'm not a moronic fanboy. I enjoy far more games than you, apparently.

really duh2987d ago

It better not cost $400. Why would gamers buy a PS3 because of its Default HDD size when the HDD's are interchangeable? An extra $100 for Uncharted 2 is what people will see when you can get hundreds of more gigs for $40 bucks lol. It's cheaper to buy the $300 Slim and Uncharted 2 and then find a deal for a HDD with much more space. FLOP, the Uncharted series isn't even that popular.

TheBand1t2987d ago

What's wrong, your other account banned?

meepmoopmeep2987d ago

this might be a really duh question

but really duh you should ask all the Halo fans who already have the maps why they would spend $60 for half a game

really duh2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

Don't worry this PS3 isn't real anyways. Just give it up and go wash your ass Don't you ever leave?

What happened did your "Microsoft Xbox 360" account get banned from the gamer zone? How did you get you "Flip Mode" and Saaking accounts blocked at the same time or are you saving them for bigger 360 news to troll in? lol

masterg2987d ago

Sold my fat PS3 6 weeks ago.
I have to be strong. I want to hold out for this bundle before I get my slim. Hope it's true.

morganfell2987d ago

Oh boo hoo....no. Just because you utilize double accounts and still receive a just, verbal evisceration do not think others do the same thing.

vmartin122986d ago

Who bundles a multiplatform game and makes a new sku for it?

MS is desperate..

U2 bundle > x360 MW2 bundle..

Get Good MS.

rareairtone2986d ago

It's already late September, so GT5 HAS to be going gold at the moment. This would mean that PD would be announcing gt5's "goldness" at TGS...

NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

belal2987d ago

for uncharted 2. i think u2 will push ps3 sales a bit.

cmrbe2987d ago

since Uncharted is now an established franchise that many still haven't experienced.

nycredude2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

Do you guys remember the first time you played a really good game on your Ps3 (MGS4 or Uncharted or Folklore, heavenly Sword)? I was like damn this Ps3 is great! I was totally blown away with the new experience. Now I've come to expect it.

Now imagine the new ps3 owner who buys this bundle. Their face will be melted off, retinas torched, and minds blown and I bet they will go out and buy every Ps3 exclusive they've missed out on!

I am kind of Jealous, although I'm sure Uncharted 2 will melt my face off also but imagine going from last gen to Uncharted 2!!!!!!

Edit: WTF Someone popped one of my bubbles! WTF! Show yourself coward!!!!!

Death2987d ago

but most of the appeal will be to PS3 owners that played the first game. Unfortunately these people already own a PS3. The positive reviews will certainly help for those that are on the fence that actually research or keep up on game news. Metal Gear was a perfect bundle since it's fanbase's last experience was on the PS2. Gran Turismo is another franchise that is a no brainer as far as bundles go.

-Death

ReservoirDog3162987d ago

Yeah, that's true. But this looks like it's gonna get really high reviews so that could get people. But I wouldn't get this bundle if I were new. I like playing games in order, especially if they focus on story like Uncharted.

cmrbe2987d ago

but my point is. Uncharted is still a fresh IP and an establised one similar to ME. It didn't sell 5 million copies or anything like that. However with the buzz around it. I am sure it will get a few more gamers to buy it.
