You’ve all probably read about the MGS4 Bundle that hasn’t been confirmed for Europe yet.
Well there are two new bundles coming soon to Euro land, both priced at £299.99 (399.99 euros) :
PS3 MOVIE PACK, AVAILABLE MARCH 19TH:
GRAN TURISMO 5 PROLOGUE PACK, AVAILABLE MARCH 25TH:
They really should put a remote and HDMI cable in the movie pack. It would make it a lot more enticing to people looking for a cheap Blu-ray player.
Seems as though European ratings board, PEGI, has leaked a list of forthcoming PSOne titles that are heading for the Euro PS Store:
# Bust a Groove
# Crash Bandicoot 3
# Colony Wars
# Cool Boarders 2
# Cool boarders 3
# Destruction Derby 2
# Devil Dice
# Everybody’s Golf
# Kurushi Final
# Motor Toon Grand Prix
# Namco Museum
# Namco Museum 2
# Namco Museum 4
# Omega Boost
# Ridge Racer
# Ridge Racer Type 4
# Spyro: Year of the Dragon
# Tekken 2
# Tekken 3
# Twisted Metal
# Vib Ribbon
# WipeOut 2097
When these titles are due is anyones guess but I wouldn’t hold your breath. I’m still waiting for Resi 1, Vagrant Story, FFVII (I have it on disc but still…) etc.
I’ve been tempted to get a PSP again (sold my last one to a friend) just for the PSOne games that I can put on it!!
I’m finding it really hard to get excited over a game that’s been delayed so many times. If it wasn’t for the pedigree of developers Free Radical Design (Timesplitters) then I would’ve stopped caring a long time ago.
Gamasutra are saying Haze is now due out May (that’s 2008 not 2009 ) so I hope the extra work done on Haze has been worth it.
To be honest, I’m quite sick of FPS at this moment in time. I’ve played CoD4, HL2: The Orange Box and Resistance over the past 6 months and beyond and I’ve had my fill of FPS. It’s an over saturated genre anyway, so it’s going to be interesting to see if Haze can make the grade.
I have a friend attending Destination Playstation. He just sent me a text with some exciting info. MGS4 will be released on June 12, 2008. It will be bundled with a 80GB PS3 with a Dual Shock 3 as well. This will be great for those people that haven’t got a PS3 yet and want to jump in.
Side note for PSP Users:
There will be a Blood Red PSP bundled with God of War in June. Which is odd, because that game is out next week.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots PS3 Bundle
To coincide with the much-anticipated North American launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in late Q2 2008, SCEA will introduce a PS3 bundle, which will include an 80GB PS3, the upcoming blockbuster Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller for $499.99 (MSRP).
As has been announced previously, MGS4 will include a Metal Gear Online “Starter Pack.” If you can’t wait to try out MGS4, the good news is you don’t have to much longer. Those who pre-order the game will be guaranteed access to a multiplayer beta test for Metal Gear Online scheduled for late April.
Where can I pre-order??! I want in on that Beta
Kotaku says that the DualShock 3 is coming out for the PS3 on April 15th for $54.99. Meh. I have one already.
We have more word from retailer conference Destination PlayStation: the DualShock 3—you know, that DualShock we’ve been waiting for since the PS3′s launch—has gotten a US release date.
Set to launch April 15th for $54.99, it’s slated to coincide with the release of GT5 Prologue. Oh yes, feel those engines roar through your controller and make your SIXAXIS-wielding friends envious…like they’re just playing a video game or something.
