More European Evidence Supports 250GB PS3 Slim Rumor
Not long ago, we learned from a European source that Sony might be releasing a slew of 250GB PS3 Slim bundles in that region; packages included the likes of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, FIFA 10, and Assassin's Creed II.
Sony completely denied the existence of the supposedly leaked Uncharted 2 bundle, calling it a "complete fabrication." But now, more evidence has arisen, as Joystiq received a couple images this morning from "an alleged Norwegian GameStop employee." The first image shows what appears to be an internal company e-mail, providing instructions and details concerning the upcoming 250GB PS3 bundles, and the packages listed include ones with Need for Speed: SHIFT and Uncharted 2. In the second image - shown here - the tipster is showing us the computer screen at the store, which also shows 250GB PS3 bundle SKUs, and you can see one for "Ratchet" right there; this would obviously include Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time. Thing is, it was SCEA that denied the Uncharted 2 250GB PS3 Slim package; there has been no denial (or confirmation) from SCEE. Therefore, there's a possibility that such bundles may exist, but also might be exclusive to European and PAL regions. Of course, we still believe SCEA has something up their sleeves for the holiday rush...
Even though TGS is a Japanese-centric game show, that doesn't mean they don't make worldwide announcements there, so perhaps we'll learn about the 250GB PS3 Slim - and all possible bundles - at that time. Just a few more days to wait!
