Two New PS3 Bundles For Europe

Even though we all know that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots launches this week, it may not be everyone's cup of tea. So if you live across the pond and are looking for another excuse to pick up the PlayStation 3, we may have found it for you.

According to European gaming site Game-Class, Sony will introduce two new PS3 bundles to the market on Friday, June 13. For some reason, this site is calling them the "Sixaxis bundles," which must mean the new Dual Shock 3 controller isn't included in either package. But anyway, one will offer a copy of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue and the other a copy of Formula One CE, either of which would be great for racing fans. The listed price is "59,99€" and while we're not entirely sure what that means for you guys, we're sure you'll be able to figure out if it's a good deal. You won't have long to wait, though, because it's only a few days off, and either package is a good enough excuse to own a PS3.

Of course, you do have the option of the MGS4 Limited Edition bundle as well, but it may be more difficult to nab.

"59,99€"? Thats about £40. Or $80. Maybe thats the price of the game by itself?

I have no idea; I was thinking it had to be a misprint...but that's exactly what it says on the site, so I have no way of knowing.

I think that this "Sixaxis bundle" means on Sixaxis Controller and GTP5/F1 CE for 60 euros. If you see the image there´s nothing making references to the console itself.

That seems logic. GT5 costing about 40 euros and F1CE something similar (old title) and the dicontinued controller for 60 euros is a good deal.

yea, it looks like its a bundle for the game and the controller only, without a console, on the box, im not seeing any console.

I'm curious though, is there a reason why its not a dualshock 3? shouldnt they try to phase that controller out?

Formula One? That game is over a year old. I can't see people queueing for that one.
