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.
