If you don’t already own a Sony PlayStation 3 (or a couple of them), there’s another enticing option that was announced today at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany.
Sony will be delivering a limited edition 160-GB PS3 bundle that includes “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” a PlayStation Network voucher for “Pain,” and a Dualshock 3 wireless controller.
The PlayStation blogger noted that Sony’s been hearing that gamers, and movie watchers, were itching for more hard drive space with the launch of Sony’s new video delivery service.
The bundle will be out in November, just in time to add to your holiday shopping list, for $499.
Along with the PS3 160-GB bundle announcement, Sony also showed off an updated PSP system—the PSP-3000, which features a wider color gamut and higher contrast LCD screen plus a built-in microphone that allows for Skype calls and multi-player gaming communication straight from the hardware. PSP Entertainment Packs will stay at $199, or $169 for the PSP Core Pack.
