Destination PlayStation News: MGS PS3 Bundle, Kratos PSP and DualShock3 Release Date

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots PS3 Bundle
To coincide with the much-anticipated North American launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in late Q2 2008, SCEA will introduce a PS3 bundle, which will include an 80GB PS3, the upcoming blockbuster Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller for $499.99 (MSRP).

The final piece of big news coming out of DPS is another much-requested release date: SCEA will introduce the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller for the first time in North America in April 2008 for $54.95 (MSRP). Compatible with more than 100 PS3 games, DUALSHOCK 3 has both rumble and motion-sending SIXAXIS technologies. So now you'll be able to play Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, and, yes, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots with rumble turned ON.

God of War PSP Entertainment Pack
In June, a new PSP Entertainment Pack will be hitting stores, featuring the famous face of the Ghost of Sparta - Kratos. Here's what you get in the bundle, which will be available for $199.99 (MSRP):

* Limited-Edition "Deep Red" PSP with Kratos silkscreened on the back
* God of War: Chains of Olympus
* Superbad on UMD video
* Voucher to download Syphon Filter: Combat Ops from PLAYSTATION Store for free

God of War: Chains of Olympus still arrives for PSP on March 4, 2008.

Those who pre-order MGS4 will have guaranteed acces to MGO beta in late april.

Does it matter where you pre-order this game? And in which continent?
Will Amazon.com suffice?
What if you are from EU?

MikeGdaGod5892d ago

i can already play Uncharted and Ratchet & Clank with rumble on

WTF a BETA if you preorder? On my way to EB today. Never pre ordered because i hate pre ordering games without a concrete release date. But guaranteed beta am in

rofldings5892d ago

Damn! I wanna preorder when/if they announce a limited edition version...but it's getting hard to wait now. :(

sonarus5892d ago

@rofldings if you pre order from EB i am pretty sure they will let you upgrade the pre order to a limited edition. Now that i have calmed down a bit lol i have decided i want to wait for more info on the beta before jumping in. Maybe its only for selected retailers.

No PS3 price drop until June?
What is MS drops their price?

Lumbo5892d ago

"What is MS drops their price?"

What if a huge meteoroid hits earth in march?
What if a sudden plague kills all Sony execs?
What if ...

What ifs are pointless, IF Microsoft cuts the price, Sony will react in one way or another. But it is pointless to speculate an unlimited number of possibilities in advance.

You have completly missed the point. The one game that most people have been holding out for with the DS3 all for $499, Sony will sell a ton of bundles.

I think sony is going to create alot of momentum. They will release Home and in-game xmb and the DS3 controller around the time GT prologue comes out. GT comes out april 17th Then about a week later GTA4 comes out, If Sony relases Home and in-game xmb around the same time that should push alot of ps3s. I don't see why Sony wouldn't do this.

You can get Gt prologue, GtA4, and Home around the same time. Not to mention MGS4 will be right around the corner. so If your on the fence about buying a 360 or a ps3 for gta you would probably go with the ps3.

Violater5892d ago

If we get Home/ingame XMB and GT5P at the same time the internet will implode.

Marceles5892d ago

well then cheers to imploding lol, i'm excited all over again after the lack of PS3 news last week

Too bad it doesn't have the picture on the console like the PSP, that would kick ass!
