As far as hardware and accessories goes, one of last night’s announcements at Sony’s press conference was for the Doomsday Edition of Resistance 3. This will be a good way for players to pick up the title along with a Move, as it includes a PlayStation Eye camera, Move controller, the navigation controller, and, of course, the Sharpshooter Move attachment. You can expect the game, as well as the bundle (at $150), to hit stores on or around September 6th (the North American release date).
You can check the trailer after the jump.

With the mighty tower that is the Call Of Duty series on the decline and burning out, the Medal of Honor game that didn’t do as well as was hoped, MAG (although a great game) has become somewhat…mundane (though the DLC did help some), that really doesn’t leave much aside from Killzone 3, which is pretty good as I find I get the “World Full” message a lot, meaning there are a lot of players online, which is good!.
But let’s get to the real reason why I’m writing this. I was making my usual rounds on the internet enjoying the sights, errrr sites ( ), when I came across information on the SOCOM 4 “Collectors Edition”, or SOCOM 4: Full Deployment as they call it, and was I shocked! Here are the details:
The Full Deployment package contains the following:
- SOCOM 4 game, on blu-ray of course
- PlayStation Move motion controller
- PlayStation Move navigation controller
- PlayStation Eye camera
- PlayStation Move Sharpshooter
Black Friday is fast approaching, so I bet you have some cash on your hands that you want well spent. Looking for a few cool deals? Leaked images show that GameStop might be a good place to go for the post-Thanksgiving splurgefest.
The supposedly leaked ad to the left indicates that you can get either Madden NFL 11 or Medal of Honor for free if you get yourself a 4GB Xbox 360. For the Wii, it’s even better: if you get a black or white Wii, you get the first Just Dance, Wii Sports Resort , and Wii Sports all for free. The PS3, on the other hand, goes God of War: buying a 160GB and you get God of War III andGod of War Collection for free.
Other attractive pickups include a limited Edition Orange or Green DSi w/ Mario Party DS for US$169.99, and a PSP pack with LBP PSP, a UMD of The Karate Kid movie, and a 2(?) GB memstick Pro Duo. You can also get older titles like UFC Undisputed 2010 and Final Fantasy XIII for just US$ 19.99.
Japan is already enjoying the ceramic white variation of the slimmed-down PS3, and pretty soon, they’ll be getting a new color to choose from. As part of its hardware bundle, Gran Turismo 5 will be accompanied by a sleek titanium blue PS3.
The shiny blue PS3 will be packing a 160GB HDD, plus a matching controller. Another interesting bit is that the Gran Turismo 5 Racing Pack will also include a first-print copy of the game, which comes with an art book and downloadable “Stealth Models” of the Mercedes Benx SLS AMG, the McLaren F1, Honda NSX GT 500, Audi R10 TDI, and the Nissan GT-R GT500.
The bundle will cost ¥35,980 (US$ 420) and will be available in Japan on November 3rd. The first-print copies of the game will be sold at regular PS3 game price, but after stocks run out, regular versions will be sold at the same price, minus the extra stuff.
Has GameStop jumped the gun again? The retailer has posted and hastily pulled a listing for a “just announced” 160GB PS3 Slim.
Before disappearing, the listing reportedly had the 160GB Slim priced at US$ 299.99, the same price that the 120GB model has now.
Aside from the standard retail pack, a US$ 404.97 God of War 3 bundle containing the game and two controllers as well as a US$ 379.97 Accessory Bundle with two controllers and a Bluetooth remote were also being offered.
Sony hasn’t announced anything yet, but notice the “Just Announced” label on the pic. Sony is having its Gamescom conference later today, though, so perhaps some GameStop employee got the dates mixed up.
Update its been confirmed by
James Gallagher: There’s a 320 GB PS3 available at 349 Euro and a 160 GB for 299.
Which is what he said in the Live blog. So thoughts on the new bundles?
