Retail sources have informed us today that the Australian market will not be seeing the release of the Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle that was announced in February. The bundle in the US will include a limited edition 'hagane' coloured 80GB PS3, a Dual Shock 3 controller and, of course, a copy of MGS 4, all for $US 499.99.
Sources also told us that the recently released GTA IV 40GB bundle didn't fair so great in Australia on release, which may have influenced the decision (although that bundle *was* released 3 days after GTA IV was released)
I would have bought the 80gb bundle day 1, but i refuse to buy the gimp 40gb bundled with the obsolete controller.
I suspect no DS3 is one of the reasons that the 40gb gta bundle flopped. Perhaps PAL is finally wising up to the shafting we get?
Now i guess i will now pin my ps3 hopes on a gt5 bundle with full BC and Ds3. Very pissed i will miss out on mgs4 now.
Really there money sux donkey balls so I can see the struggling to buy a ps3, sony should drop the damn price in those areas and europe and get second place already but I guess they are waiting to get shot in the foot again.
Anybody find it funny how the author fails to mention his sources?
wait.... america gets coloured playstations?
theres a joke in there somewhere i'm sure.
