Rumor: 250GB PS3 Slim Bundle With MLB 10: The Show

Retail leaks are often quite reliable...maybe because the biscuit employees wouldn't be too crushed if they lost their jobs.

But anyway, as noted by Joystiq, a supposed internal Target listing appears to confirm an upcoming PlayStation 3 bundle package featuring MLB 10: The Show. The printout you see through the link shows a photograph of a scanner; the bundle on display features the 250GB PS3 Slim model and a copy of the new baseball simulator for the price of $349.99. If true, it'll be available to purchase on June 13 and Joystiq was able to confirm with one Target location that the database listing is indeed real. This probably isn't really surprising, either, especially considering the recent deal Sony just inked with MLB to bring MLB.TV to the PlayStation Network. In the biggest shock ever, Sony responded by saying they "don't comment on rumors or speculation," which at this point should be part of the freakin' logo. Oh, I'm not bitter or anything; I've just heard and seen that same exact statement countless times in the past several years, so...it gets a little mind-numbing. But at least it's understandable.

Anyway, if you're a baseball fan and you have yet to snag a PS3, or you simply want to upgrade your old model, you should look into this bundle.

Yeah, we both may not be into sport's game too much, but I have to think that there's tons & tons of others that truly love their sports games.

Especially for soccer, American football, golf & baseball fans out there.

So I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the updated videos. Enslaved isn't looking too good to me. It's like Heavenly Sword without that nice shiny coat of paint. It's almost like it appears to be some sort of multiplat coop game.

From what I read of it in Gaminformer a few months back, the story should be pretty interesting at the very least.

agree with world and I'd like to add ummm, where was the drifting in that blur video? Video was called dangerous drifting something or other and there was barely any sliding at all. If that's drifting than I'll be passing blur up faster than you can blink.

Great bundle for any baseball fan!

HA!!!

Who here on this website DOESN'T have a PS3?

That's what immediately came to mind after reading this article.

Come on, anyone reading this NOT have a PS3? Anyone? How about a 360 or Wii? Who here doesn't have one of those?

Are you kidding me? PLEASE SONY GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!!
This is a bundle!? They had GoW3, UC2, Heavy Rain... and we get a freaking baseball game? They clearly don't want to close the gap with the 360 :(
If they had any of those great games in a bundle I would have bought my second PS3 a while back.
I think they are doing their best not to sell that much since they are still losing money on each PS3... Hopefully we will see some real bundle by the end of the year. dare I say "The Last Guardian" PS3 bundle? Two please! :)

That's kind of weird... how would a baseball game count as a bundle? I hardly would call a baseball game a video game. I know that it is a video game, but why would I play a video game of a sport that I wouldn't even want to play for real? lol. Also, I think Sony likes it when a person who works at a place like target or gamestop lets 'secrets' like this a few weeks or so before they're supposed to. If they don't, it probably wont sell as quickly. If it's something really awesome, then I could see it still selling fast, but some of the ones like this baseball one probably wouldn't, and this one probably still wont. I agree with Karosso, they should bundle with an exclusive. Look how Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle went, people loved that. There were so many different games they could have bundled with, and they chose a damn sports game, lol.

im not sure but i think MLB10 Show is exclusive to PS3, but i get what your saying a better exclusive will be the route for SONY to take.

LOL @ "part of the freakin' logo."

You might actually be on to something there.

As for a MLB PS3 bundle, yes please! Why WOULDN'T they bundle the PS3 with the best baseball game in existence?

This is good and bad.

GOOD: There are lot's pf MLB fans that want PS3's and we all know most sport games (GOLF and BASEBALL) are better on PS3.

BAD: Overall this really isn't the best game for a bundle as I really think SONY should put Uncharted 2 instead, because basically it's pretty much their #1 game unless you like other genres.
