PlayStation 3 Bundles Top Hardware Sellers at Best Buy
When we first heard about a PlayStation 3 bundle that featured Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and Killzone 2 - arguably the two best titles available on the machine - we said to ourselves, "this can't miss."
And so it hasn't. According to PunchJump, this Best Buy exclusive bundle has become the best-selling hardware SKU at the retailer's online division. Yep, as of Monday, this great package was ranked #1 in that division, and you only get one guess as to what's #2...it's the other PS3 bundle that includes LittleBigPlanet and a Blu-Ray copy of the movie, "WALL-E." If you've been looking for a replacement PS3 or - for some strange reason - haven't yet jumped onto the Sony bandwagon, either of these bundles is an excellent option. Getting MGS4 and KZ2 for free is our pick, of course, but we leave that decision up to you. If you want more incentive to spend some cash, head on over to Amazon.com, where you will find the freshly discounted inFamous on sale for $44.99. So you can save fifteen bucks on this excellent exclusive if you haven't already played it, and this leads us to the culmination: if you wanted, you could right now pick up the 80GB PS3, MGS4, KZ2, and inFamous all for less than $450, and that's nearly $600 normally. It can be tough to find great deals in gaming, but this is undeniably one of the better ones of 2009.
And the success of these bundles at Best Buy also proves that the PS3 is selling quite well, despite the fact that we haven't hit the holiday heyday just yet.
