In the US at least, $299 will get you a 320GB PlayStation 3 and a copy of the game, which SCEA call “one of the best-selling first person action games of all time.”
Interestingly Sony – in the official Blog post – call the PS3 the “best console for core gamers”. To be honest, after everything Microsoft have done recently, I’m tempted to agree.
Continuing to push the virtues of the console, Sony remind potential buyers that the PSN (to play online) is free.
“Right out of the box,” says the press release, “you will have instant and free access to the action-packed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 online multiplayer experience through PlayStation Network.”
