Console bundles are all the rage these days. If you’re in the market for a new console of any kind, chances are if you stick it out long enough and look around thoroughly enough, you can find a bundle with at least one game included. If you’ve been holding out for a PS3 or are looking to upgrade to a slim, and Killzone 3 looks like it’s your type of game, then this newly announced bundle is likely the right choice for you. The bundle is just a standard PS3 Slim with a copy of Killzone 3 included at no additional price. To no surprise, it launches on February 22, the same day that Killzone 3 hits shelves.
It’s kind of late to be announcing this bundle and it’s a shame that it only appears to be for North American gamers. Personally, I would’ve loved to see them go the extra mile and craft an actual Killzone 3-themed console. If word hits that Sony is planning on launching this on the eastern side of the pond, we’ll be sure to let you know.
[Update] We just found out that there is a bundle available in EU via Game.co.uk. Not only that but the HDD inside is 160gb larger than the North American bundle and the copy of Killzone 3 included is actually the collector’s edition.
