250GB PS3 Slim Uncharted 2 Bundle A European Exclusive?
It almost seems inevitable that the 250GB PS3 Slim is on the way; if you don't believe it, here's more evidence (even if it might disappoint North American gamers).
This here is exactly what it appears to be: a leaked image of the supposedly impending Uncharted 2: Among Thieves 250GB PS3 Slim package, which is just plain sweet. Now, according to Engadget, there are no confirmed details, but there is the belief that such a bundle would hit store shelves either for the game's launch - October 13 - or later in the holiday season (perhaps early November, when the rumored Gran Turismo 5 bundle is scheduled). But after getting in contact with SCEA, it appears we come across a few more pieces of info; they said there are no bundles being planned for North America, but Europe is another story. Unfortunately for our US readers, this does gel with recent updates; all those PS3 Slim bundles revealed earlier did come from a European source. However, it would seem ridiculous to avoid releasing any bundles here in North America, because after all, you can still buy the 160GB PS3 packaged with Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
Maybe Sony will clear all this up at the Tokyo Game Show later this month and if they do and US gamers really are left out in the cold...well, there could be some backlash.
