Best Buy PlayStation 3 Bundle Features Killzone 2, MGS4?

Geez, Sony and Best Buy are really going all out with these bundle deals, aren't they?

This past week, we heard about two packages that are well worth any consumer's consideration: one included a copy of LittleBigPlanet and the Blu-Ray edition of the movie "WALL-E," while the other featured a beautiful 46" 1080p LCD HDTV. But if neither of those got your engine running, perhaps you'll want a bundle that features what may very well be the two best games available for the PlayStation 3. Granted, this is hardly official, but here's some visual evidence. Supposedly leaked by a Best Buy employee, the picture clearly shows a couple new PS3 bundles that boast copies of Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, all for the same price as that aforementioned game/movie package- $399. Yup, you're basically getting those games for free, as the standard retail price of the 80GB PS3 is $399. Honestly, if this bundle isn't capable of pushing sales a little, considering the awesomeness of the games in the box, there's something seriously wrong with the gaming community. Both are Game of the Year candidates; one has already been a GoY winner.  Let's just hope this is real; could very well be fake.

So if you've been looking for an even better excuse to pick up the PS3, or perhaps you just want a new one for whatever reason, it'll be tough to find a better game-related deal.

hmmm that would be awesome but I currently work at a Best Buy and well...I have yet to see any bundle. And since we get similar shipments to every store especially bundles, I'm going with fake right now. We just got the LBP/Wall-E bundle like 2 weeks ago maybe? So sadly I'll have to say it is fake

Really? Hmm...I remember reading the article on another site that said some other Best Buy employees confirmed it as well...but who knows.

Anyway if THIS is true. WOW VERY VERY TEMPTING.

However...I'm just worried about 1) backwards compatibility and 2) whether the PS3 slim really is coming out soon or something

Because if u think about it, it's like they're trying to sort of clear the stock of PS3s...I mean with this kind of bundle you can very well do that.

Oh god I hope that whole firmware update bringing backwards compatibility thing is true. Gosh...for me it'd be such a risk trying to buy this.

Then again...I can return it in 3 months right?

Or something?...I forget the return policy.

I LOVE bestbuy as much as I hate gamestop. No seriously, sometimes you may find cheaper deals elsewhere but the fact is that BestBuy provides you great service. They return policy is one of the best around. You can return opened console items within 30 days while with GameStop, you can NOT return any console if you have opened it. Bestbuy FTW :)

Ben, I agree! If this bundle can not sell PS3s then yes, there is something very very wrong with the gamers who have been waiting for a sweet PS3 deal. Forget about PS3 Slim man, this is one of the best deals EVER! (If it's not fake that is)

the picture looks real enough and if so this has to be the best bundle to date (can't see them giving away a cloned copy of megan fox with every ps3. now that would be a deal for $399!)

oh and happy independence day to all you americans! :) and that's coming from an english man.....

Hey, I know This is off topic:
I got a new Hp Dv4-1225dx a couple of months back; and my MS Office Word isn't working. I never typed in the product key and now, when I type it in, it says it is invalid. I went on the MS website to verify my computer, and that didn't work. Now it says that I have to go buy a new product key. MS never told me that I would have to pay for a new key; in fact, they never said anything about a new key. So, in a sense, Microsoft screwed me. Is there anything I can do before I shed out cash?

If you purchased office and it is not working you can download the iso file and simply burn that to a cd/dvd. It's the equivalent of downloading roms for older games if you have the original hard copy. I suggest you go that route since it sounds like MS is refusing to help you.

It is a trial version that you have and it has expired, that's why it stopped working. The trial version only last 90 days.

Multiple credible sites are posting this as the real deal. It better damn well be becuase it's such a great deal. It really is the equivlent of a 120 dollar price cut since any new PS3 owner should consider these 2 games as must haves. You're basically getting a PS3 for $280 dollars. Using a different take on the savings then you Ben but it's equal to the same value.

Open Office is free and when you finish your documents you can save in XP .doc format.

I deleted my Microsoft Office in favor of Open Office.

Adding MGS4 and Killzone 2 is a nice deal since that pretty much a 100 dollar cut
