Grand Theft Auto IV PS3 Bundle Announced...for Europe

  So we've seen the pictures, and some questioned the validity, but last night, Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe confirmed that the Grand Theft Auto IV bundle is very much real. The bundle will launch alongside the release of Grand Theft Auto IV next week on April 29th. It will feature a 40GB PlayStation 3 that comes with a SixAxis controller, and a standard edition copy of GTAIV. The total cost will run European PS3 hopefuls 439-Euros, or 319-Pounds for those in the United Kingdom.

   This Grand Theft Auto IV bundle marks just one of many bundles that the PlayStation 3 has been treated to. We've already had the MotorStorm bundle, the Gran Turismo 5 Prologue bundle, a Heavenly Sword/Formula One bundle, the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle, and a few others in between. No doubt that the bundle move has proven successful to Sony, as units are whisked off the shelves at a better pace.

   Historically, having a pack-in has always been a proven formula, dating all the way back to the NES, SNES, Genesis and all their many bundles. "We are delighted to offer the millions of PS3 and GTA fans the ultimate gaming package," said David Reeves, President, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. Unfortunately, it looks like American gamers are out of luck, as Sony's PR team has stated that the bundle isn't happening in the US.

Same here Reccaman18!

I just don't like the fact that they are taking forever to announce where we can reserve it. I hope the price of the LE bundle isn't too high.

This GTA4 bundle would have been great for the U.S.

This is a rare news.

This stuff usually never gets near Europe.

Good for Sony to start finally thinking about us here.
