GameStop's Black Ops PS3 Bundle Boasts $50 Gift Card

Okay, so you missed it. And you've regretted it ever since.

...yeah, I know a lot of our PSXE readers are laughing, but maybe you have a friend that might like to benefit from this deal. GameStop is advertising a Call of Duty: Black Ops PS3 Bundle, which features the 160GB PlayStation 3, one controller, a copy of Activision's smash hit, the First Strike add-on pack, HD component cables (always a huge bonus), and a $50 GameStop gift card. So this means the purchaser can just pick up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in November for only ten extra dollars, thereby making the bundle package great for CoD fans. And maybe you're a latecomer to the party; maybe you just had too much stuff to play last holiday season.

But then again, as a gift, it works pretty well. We're just not sure if there are any shooter fans who haven't yet played Black Ops.

I remember two years ago when retailers started doing bundles and gift cards in June for the PS3 60 GB fatty.
Then a few months later we had the PS3 Slim and a price cut announcement at Gamescom.

So hmmm why push a bundle with a free game plus a gift card?

Channel clearing for something??

Stay tuned!!

I keep waiting to hear of any news of the "hack-proof" model that was supposedly in production. There were hints of a CECH-3000 being registered with the FCC but nothing else. I'm dreaming of model with a faster bluray drive and lower energy consumption at $250 but I'm betting it'll just be a more secure slim.

Oh for the love of man. Yank that game out from there. Black Ops has no business getting the pack in over KZ3.

Weak sauce Sony and Gamestop. Weak sauce.

I look at weekly ads for deals on video games every week. Each time I look at Target's or Best Buy, they always include a $50 gift card with a PS3 purchase. I wish I got a $50 gift card when I bought mine.

As I've already stated many times before over the last few years.....Wake up Sony, stop letting M$ steal away the power of the bundle.

Bundles are supposed to be special, so they should include the higher 250 GB HD's, like the 360 does.

And theme & skin them like M$ did on my COD MW2 EliteDeluxe 250GB 360 & like their own new red skinned GearsOW bundle.

It's not rocket science!

Sony, git 'er done!

i agree with that. ms has been very good at bundling 360's. it's intersting you brought up the skins becuase i know several people that went out and bought an additional 360 just for the skins and becuase they thought ms gave them a great deal.

look at sony's helghast bundle in comaparison. that really should have been a skinned model. i think consumers would go for that more than just a plain bundle. like you said, make the bundle special.

What a useless bundle. I'd get Blops if it were as cheap as it should be just so I can do zombies with my friend. Stupid Activision keeps it near full price for years so even used copies are too expensive.

Methinks this is indeed a way to clear out PS3 models for something else coming.

I would spend that $50 on an HDMI cable if you didn't have one.

sha4dowknight05,

Hey look NO FURTHER than MonopriceDOTcom for all your wiring & cable needs.

I picked up their newest updated 30 foot color-coded ethernet cables for arounf $5.50 each, & the newest upgraded 10 foot HDMI color-coded cables for about the same.

There's nobody cheaper for that latest upgraded stuff.....trust me on this.

Wow, people shouldn't be spending over 10 bucks on an HDMI cable. The quality of the cheaper brands you find online are just as good as the 'premium' ones you find at retailers.

Awe.... I hope this is in Northern Ireland although it looks as if Call of Duty would just end up being a instant trade-in. Sorry but it isn't Mobile Suit Gundam or Armoured Core... so how long can my heart be empty.... of a new Armoured Core.... For Answer is getting boring sadly.

YOu know I'm not that into shooters but I was dinking around at Best Buy the other day and saw a whole area in the store devoted to the promotion of this bundle. I don't know. Maybe in the future Sony think of snatching 360's main demographics. I can see it now: both sides will be claiming that they own the 'must have' the console for shooters.

not exactly deal of the century but eh.
only thing i hate about bundles is for some bizarre reason they wont let you trade in games that came in the bundle.
when i bought my 360 i tried to trade in gears 2, alan wake and halo reach towards the console but they would not let me trade them in so im stuck with 3 games ive already finished!
