A regular 160GB costs $299.99 at all the retails, i guess this is the New Rumoured SKU, but cheaper. Cool

a lot of times the bundle doesn't change the price. Its probably the same 160GB sku. when i first read it i thought KZ3 would be the better offer but i guess anything COD will attract more people who dont yet own a ps3/360

Well PSn will deffintly be back before the 24th.

pretty good deal Cod PS3 bundle when it was released on the xbox 360 it sold good as i rememeber hearing cod does great both on the 360 and ps3 so having a bundle for the console is great.

Why cod? An old game, not exclusive, and Ms gets map packs first....weird bundle.
metsgaming  +   1667d ago
yea its old and everyone who wants it already has it. Lame bundle there are so many games more deserving of a bundle and would yield a better result imo.
AdmiralSnake  +   1666d ago
Its not about deserving its about what will sell, and COD sells great whether you wanna believe it or not.

Call of duty Black ops will be the first PS3 game to pass 10million in sales.....

Because according to sales figures more people are willing to purchase the PS3 version of B.O over ANY other PS3 exclusive. So, contrary to your beliefs, the bundle makes perfect sense considering B.O is the most purchased/desired game on the PS3. Numbers don't lie.

Depends. If its only at a store like BestBuy its probably not official and its simply BestBuy tossing in a game so you buy the console from them.

If it is official its for marketing purposes. If Sony tosses COD into the package they get to advertise with COD. Which means COD commercials with the PS3 logo at the end, or "Buy a PS3 with COD". Which in turn grabs the interest of the millions of COD fanboys and helps sell consoles.

think off all the people who never played a ps3 but hear about COD all the time

Well Black Ops is the best selling PS3 game of all time, so it makes sense to do this bundle.

Black Ops is a great game in it's own right, though I've only played it on the 360.

a little late to the party?

lol, Makes sense, trying to get those COD players back that have left because of the PSN outage.
joeyisback  +   1667d ago
off topic just called sony said psn should be up this week sometime i hope so but i also asked will we be able to changed security question and they said no wtf but told me to change the email address that i use
AdmiralSnake  +   1667d ago
Wow.... anyway it makes sense COD is the best selling PS3 game whether people wanna agree with it or not.

So bundling it would make perfect sense honestly I don't see why they never did this sooner.

Buying a PS3 for a Call of Duty game is laughable - HILARIOUS even!
TheDivine  +   1666d ago
Why? You can only play it on ps3/360 consolewise so if ur one of the 15 mil cod fans its not laughable its obvious. Besides average people not on n4g love it, is it cool for jaded gamers to hate most fun multiplayer game w the biggest online community? I thought the campain was tits and multi is great fun but the real reason i love it zombies, best co-op imho. I admit id get it 4 360 because it runs better an maps but if ur friends game on ps3 or u need bluray why not?
DigitalRaptor  +   1666d ago
Buying a console specifically for Call of Duty these days is one of the noobiest things a person can do. There's a multitude of much better games out there that show off a console better than CoD!

Better have all the DLC.
