New Playstation 3 Holiday Bundle Details Leaked
With the holidays steadily approaching, the console war is again heating up, this time in the form of the holiday bundle war. Each season, the big three re-package their flagship systems up in a fancy new box, throwing in some games and accessories to entice buyers. Major Nelson recently announced Microsoft's new pair of holiday bundles, the agressively-priced offers putting the ball in Sony's court. And now it seems Sony has responded with a similar Playstation 3 bundle, at a rumored deep discount.
Though Sony has not officially announced the bundle, leaked images of the box give us all we need to know about the contents: a 160GB PS3 Slim alongside the games LittleBigPlanet2 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, along with 30-days of Playstation Plus as a bonus. But perhaps most exciting about this bundle is the rumored price-point of only $219.99. Considering that a 160GB PS3 currently retails for $249.99, this would make Sony's holiday bundle a crazy good deal, and definitely something Microsoft will be worried about with their own bundles going for $299 and $399.
Interestingly, this bundle is clearly a "family-friendly" version. It remains to be seen whether Sony will be putting together a "gamer" bundle as well, but we definitely hope so.
