New PS3 Bundle to Arrive Jan 18th (UK)
SCEE are going to release a new bundle called the ‘Pick N Mix’ later this month, January 18th to be exact.
The bundle is a 40GB PS3 plus the choice of any two of the following games:
Ratchet and Clank: Tools Of Destruction, Formula One, L.A.I.R, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Singstar PS3 (with microphones), Motorstorm, Resistance: Fall Of Man, Folklore, Warhawk (with headset) and Genji: Days of the Blade.
All for £349.99. You’re basically saving £40 – £50 depending on the games you choose.
A good deal? The only good bit about it is the wide selection of games you can choose from. Most bundles in the past forced you to pick from a crap selection of games or left with no choice at all.
I had a look around a couple of online retailers and Play.com is selling the 40GB PS3 for £289.99 and SEGA Rally for £17.99. You can also get Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune both for £34.99 each.
The only advantage to the ‘new’ bundle is the wider range of games to choose from.
I still think it’s a mistake to stop selling the 60GB PS3 and removing backwards compatibility from the 40GB PS3 but what do I know.
