Destination Playstation: MGS4 PS3 Bundle, Kratos PSP and DualShock 3 Release Date
This is the first time I ever heard of this event and its for a good reason. Destination Playstation is a meeting between Sony, retailers and 3rd party teams that is taking place in Arizona. The good news is they have announced a Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle, God of War PSP Entertainment Pack and the release date of the DualShock 3 controller.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots PS3 Bundle
Potentially game of the year right here. Sony has announced that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots bundle that will include an 80GB PS3, Metal Gear Solid 4 and DualShock 3 controller for $499.99.
Metal Gear Online Starter Pack is included with MGS4 but if you want an early crack at this game those who pre-order the game gets guranteed access to the multiplayer beta scheduled for late April.
Rumors have that the release date for MGS4 is June 12th. If this is true expect the bundle then and be wary of stampeding customers.
God of War PSP Entertainment Pack
Just like with the Star Wars and Dexter entertainment pack. A special edition PSP with Kratos on the back will hit stores March 4th for $199.99. The entertainment pack includes (picture at the bottom):
- Limited-Edition â€œDeep Redâ€ PSP with Kratos silkscreened on the back
- God of War: Chains of Olympus
- Superbad on UMD video
- Voucher to download Syphon Filter: Combat Ops from the Playstation Store for free
God of War for the PSP is awesome. If your planning on getting a PSP now is a good time.
It’s about time. The DualShock 3 will release in North America this April for 2008 for $54.99.
Even though I never heard of Destination Playstation they sure brought the goods. If that release date for MGS4 is true summer is going to be hot. Nice to finally know when the DualShock 3 releases and the that God of War Entertainment pack is nice.
I’m really excited for MGS4 more then before and I think I’ll pre-order my game tomorrow to get involved in the beta. Let the June 12th release date be true.
