Sony has detailed the God of War: Ascension bundles to be made available in Europe a bit more, which means if you don’t want a white PS3 with a Gold Controller, you can get the console in black instead. White shows a lot of smudges, well, it does in my animal filled house. Anyway, it’s nice to have options, and you can also pick up the Gold DualShock Controller separately. All console bundles come with a 500GB system. Hit up the links for more information. Thanks, CyberMarco.

GameStop posted a 4.6% drop in sales for the nine weeks ending December 29, with global sales reaching $2.88 billion. Year-over-year sales declined 4.4 %, with US sales down 3.5% over the year prior, with international sales falling 6.4%. Hardware sales were down by 2.7% despite Wii U being around for the holidays and moving 320,000 units. New software sales fell 5.1%, while pre-owned software fell by 15.6%, a figure GameStop blamed on limited inventory “due to fewer new titles released throughout 2012 and less promotional activity negatively impacted sales compared to last year”. Digital sales, however, were up 40% year-over-year, and the firm’s global e-commerce sales were up 20.5%. Thanks, MCV.
