Limited Edition PS3 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Bundle Coming Soon

Playstation Blog: Hey shooter fans! By popular demand, we are bringing you an epic bundle on May 25th, featuring one of the best-selling first person action games of all time.
PlayStation is partnering with Activision to pair the blockbuster and record-setting video game franchise Call of Duty along with the best console for core gamers, the PS3. Today we are announcing a Limited Edition PS3 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 bundle which includes a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the hit title that set a new entertainment launch record upon its release in November, and a 320GB PlayStation 3 System, for only $299. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PS3)

Late much. Probably would have been far more effective at MW3 launch to have one of these, though I'm pretty sure MS has some deal with Activision.

I'm sure this will help push sales for the PS3.

Anyone who enjoys COD already has MW3 by now.
Don't waste your time on a pointless bundle like this Sony!! Way to Late! Do a Freakin' StarHawk Bundle or something that makes more sense!

While it's true that it's too late to bundle COD MW3 with PS3, you need to understand that COD is not published by Sony. For example, Uncharted 3 is published by Sony and it's much cheaper for Sony to include it as the bundle when the game came out. That's why almost every game bundled with PS3 is published by Sony.

Since Activision knows COD MW3 will sell super well, there is no reason to let Sony bundle it with a PS3 for small licensing fee. Only now, as MW3 isn't selling as fast any more, it's time to let Sony bundle it with a PS3 with a small fee to increase MW3 base again. Activision did the same thing with BlackOps with PS3 months after the game has been out.

They should have bundled BF3 instead.

They did bundle Battlefield with the PS3 around the launch of BF3. It was a 160 but they did do a bundle.

I'll take the PS3, they can keep the rest.
Oh, i'll want the controller too. :-)

All this time later, huh? I guess Microsoft's timed exclusive contract on bundles finally wore off...

Pretty sure Activison and Microsoft has some contract for custom COD consoles.

anyway Custom console = more money
Would people really pay a premium price for a MW3 custom console this late after launch? I don't think so.

if i was looking for a ps3 i would get this.. i mean if you dont like the game you can trade it torwards max payne 3 and get maybe 20$

lol at calling it "limited edition" when its just a regular PS3 plus a regular copy of MW3. millions of PS3 owners already have this "limited edition".

good old sony, always late to the party and not bringing any drinks with them.

Of all the games...

I guess if you're looking to switch from Xbox to PS3 and you're a CoD fan. That's too many IFs and Ands though...

Yeah...November was a long ass time ago.

They should have invested more in creating a Persona 4: Arena edition Playstation 3 with golden color and Yuu Narukami decal. Shigenori Soejima's signature would have been the icing on the cake.....
