PS3 New Owner's Kit: Controller, HDMI, USB Cables

They've dropped the price of the system, the holiday season is just around the corner, and it's time to give new PlayStation 3 owners a great option.

The box you see here is the New Owner's Kit, which offers happy new PS3 owners a package full of must-haves at an agreeable price.

It includes the always necessary DualShock 3 wireless controller, an HDMI cable, and USB cables. USB cables are essential for charging up a controller (ideally, while you're playing with another) and the HDMI cable is another critical piece of the puzzle. We still find it annoying that Sony doesn't include one of these with the system, as it's a true high-definition machine that absolutely requires an HDMI cable to operate at optimum capacity.

Anyway, the PS3 New Owner's Kit will retail for $69.99, and Sony says this offers "over $24 in savings" (a DS3 controller costs $54.99 on its own). If you like, you can pre-order the package now; it should be on store shelves on October 25.

Not a good deal at all. You can get the DS3 for 45 bucks and a 6ft HDMI cable for 5, no tax and no shipping. 50 dollars flat, now that's a deal.

I agree they should include the RCA type cables and HDMI cable. I would not be happy if they only included the HDMI cable because there are still quite a few people using older tvs that don't have the HDMI.

Those people should not be allowed to let that dusty old thing touch a PS3.

The best place to get hi-speed 4.1 HDMI cables is at monoprice DOT com.

And they're less than $5 for color-coded ones too
(all my Ethernet & HDMI cable are from there & all color-coded so it's easy to trace down any console problems leading up to or coming out of my 5-into-1 HDMI switchbox.

Waste of money. I would rather get their other controller bundle that comes with a game for only $5 more. That was a deal this is just plain rip-off. This should be priced at $54.99

Lord, why did it take them so long... Sometimes I really wonder how Sony is run... what the feck are they doing when they have their board meetings and get feedback from their staff...

For 6 years people have been screaming for the inclusion of an HDMI cable. If it were not possible to do this, they should have come up with this bundle a long long time ago...

Strange indeed... but probably over priced!

Q!
