Default New PS3 Sku

I'm not sure if this has been posted on the board, but I remember reading here that Target was going to have a new sku with 2 included games. I saw it yesterday at my local target. Sorry if this is old news.






Sorry for the iphone pics. It's packaged with motorstorm and resistance - $399.99

Greatest hits bundle

Buy a PS3, get two really good games? Yeah they both have sequels but that doesn't detract from how good they are. This ought to be standard, but perhaps with some newer titles. If Warhawk weren't a download title, I'd have gone with that. They oughta include $10 credit with every new PS3, in addition to the two game bundles, pre-load the thing with recent, high profile demoes, as well as a bunch of trailers for said high profile games. Raise awareness of products, people will buy.

Yeah, I have it on Blu-ray, as well, but it kind of undermines the purpose of putting it on PSN to have every PS3 already come with it, it limits new users. Granted Warhawk isn't exactly new nor is it a sales beast but it's the principle of the thing.

We had this bundle in Europe two summers ago. It cost a bit more though

I don't think either of those games help the system make a good first impression. Uncharted and GT5 Prologue, that's a perfect bundle right there.

I agree... and if not Uncharted how about GT5 bundled with either MGS 4, Killzone 2, or Resistance 2 instead of Resistance: Fall of Man. Don't get me wrong, R:FoM was good but is old. You can get it for cheap now too. How would people react if Microsoft bundled Gears 1 and Call of Duty 3 with a new 360 now?

Two games are better than none though. When I purchased my PS3 I got squat, not even the Dualshock controller.

Yeah, like I said, I remember hearing this would happen, but I didn't know what two games were coming, and I didn't hear that it had hit stores yet
