Best Buy Offering Two Sweet PlayStation 3 Bundles
Okay, so we didn't get the much-anticipated PlayStation 3 price cut at E3, but perhaps you would respond to another type of popular incentive: bundles!
For the most part, the concept of the console bundle is both a welcome sight and an irritation for avid gamers. On the one hand, they appreciate the free bonuses but on the other, they remain miffed that Sony won't simply cut the base retail price. Well, even if you fall into the latter category, you will have to admit that Best Buy's offerings are awfully juicy: thanks to PSXE reader caliblue15, we have this visual evidence from BlueRayCenter's forums. As you can see, a copy of LittleBigPlanet and the Blu-Ray version of the hit film "WALL-E" are packaged together with the PlayStation 3, and it seems both of the aforementioned items are free. The price tag for this bad boy shouldn't be a cent more than the regular 80GB PS3 with no such additions, which we know is $399. Furthermore, cast your glance lower to find an even bigger - and potentially sweeter - bundle; it features a 46" 1080p LCD HDTV and the 80GB PS3 for the very attractive price of $1299! Now, if you haven't made the leap into full high-definition this generation, you may not ever find a better deal. Seriously, there are lots of sales incentives floating around out there, but this one is worthy of your attention.
Perhaps your PS3 is on the fritz and you haven't updated to a high-def TV, or maybe you simply don't have a PS3 and you could use an even better TV. Whatever the reason, Best Buy has two ultra-appealing options that should tickle your buying bone.
