MGS4 PS3 Bundle Hits #1 At Amazon
Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV may have sold more copies, but it has the benefit of being available on more than one console. Konami's Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is exclusive to the PlayStation 3, and for that reason, Sony has enjoyed a significant hardware sales surge.
That MGS4 PS3 bundle continues to sell like mad; both WalMart.com and BestBuy.com have reported being sold out of the appealing package, and according to PunchJump, the bundle just hit #1 on Amazon's best-selling product list. After getting restocked, the bundle's sales soared 100% and has been climbing up the charts for the past several weeks. For $499, you can get a 80GB PlayStation 3, a Dual Shock 3 controller, and of course, a copy of the stellar title. If you've already forgotten, Sony will release a new 80GB PS3 this fall for the price of $399; the current price of the 40GB model. For now, if you don't yet have a PS3, there's no better reason to own one than MGS4...which, of course, is why this bundle is so damn popular.
It could be difficult to find as time goes on; Konami did say there would be a limited number of these bundles, so if you've been hemming and hawing over a purchase, maybe now's the time to buy. You know you want a PS3 and you know you want MGS4, so there shouldn't be any sort of conundrum, here.
