PS3 Slim Bundles Revealed For 2009, Gran Turismo 5 Included!
The PS3 Slim has turned many heads but if you're still not convinced, you might want to wait until the various bundle deals drop for the holidays.
It's a given that a few are definitely on the way, but it seems European site Play3-Live has revealed all the Slim packages that are scheduled for the remainder of 2009. We can't say this is 100% concrete - we never say that until Sony has made the official announcement - but we certainly like what we see. There will be PS3 Slim bundles that include Need for Speed: Shift, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Assassin's Creed II, Tekken 6, Pro Evolution Soccer 2010, and...yep, Gran Turismo 5, sitting right there with a December 4 release date. Now, even if these are accurate, all these bundles may not see the light of day here in North America; we'd be surprised if that PES 2010 package launches in the US, for example. But for something like GT5, one would have to assume that bundle will be on store shelves in all three major regions around the world. You will also notice the shipping unit amount for each bundle; the GT5 package has the biggest number, with 75,000. That should be an initial number; hopefully, we're not talking about the only packages that will ever be made. Don't want to make 'em too "Limited."
But above all else, this is just more evidence that GT5 will indeed release this year. We've had plenty of info on this matter so far, and this is just another indication that one of the most anticipated titles of the generation is imminent!
