Play.com’s doing its best to keep PS3′s price down, despite Sony’s refusal to offer an official cut, launching two new Christmas bundles for the machine today.
The first pack comes with an 80Gb machine, Quantum Of Solace, Batman Begins Blu-ray, the Blu-ray remote and LittleBigPlanet for £300.
The second swaps out Quantum of Solace for GTA IV, and Batman Begins for 300, for the same price.
Maybe now’s the time? Thanks, PS3F.

Following news of some fairly spectacular 360 bundling in the UK, Dell’s confirmed it’s offering Rock Band 2 and an Arcade 360 for $199.
The offer will only be available as part of Dell’s “Black Friday” promotion, but still.

See the world go mad through the link.

Microsoft’s press released the Gears 2 launch with a reminder that UK retailer Game’s releasing a bundle with the title today.
The pack costs £199.99 and comes with the game, a 60Gb 360 and an extra controller. You can’t really say fairer than that.
Neil Martin from Game said, “We’ve seen some incredible excitement around the launch of Gears of War 2 for months now and are delighted to finally enable fans to get their hands on the game.
“Last night’s midnight launch saw dedicated fans queuing up to get their copies. We’re absolutely sure that they won’t be disappointed with what’s set to be one of the must-have games this Christmas.”

SCEE just confirmed to VG247 that its LittleBigPlanet bundle will launch in Europe on October 31.
The pack will contain the game, an 80Gb PS3 and a DualShock 3 for £299.
It doesn’t sound like the cute DualShock 3 packs containing nothing but the controller and the game are going to make it out of Japan, either: a rep told us this morning that the machine pack was the “only” LBP bundle being offered in Europe.
LittleBigPlanet releases on October 24.

According to this Joystiq story, a Guitar Hero: On Tour DS bundle is to release in the US on June 22.
An official price for the package, which will include a new black and silver DS Lite branded with the Guitar Hero logo, has not yet been announced. Apparently, though, Toys ‘R’ Us listed the pack at $180 earlier before removing the detail.
No announcement on this for Europe as yet.

According to P3F, the exclusive-to-the-US 80GB MGS4 PS3 bundle sold out on Amazon.com in just seven minutes.
Demand for the bundle was so high, that it actually brought the retailer giant to its knees. Hilarious.
MGS4 will be released worldwide on June 12 and no, for the last time, us lowly Europeans aren’t getting the 80Gb DualShock 3 bundle. In fact we’re not getting a bundle at all. Only in Britain are they allowed to purchase the 40Gb gunmetal Sixaxis bundle from Play.

Speaking in an investor call after the announcement of record financials last night, Activision execs confirmed that a DS bundle with the upcoming handheld version of Guitar Hero – Guitar Hero: On Tour – will be released when the game launches on June 22 in the US.
No specific date has yet been given for the game’s European launch.
“[It's] a breakthrough peripheral-based game for the Nintendo DS that brings the Guitar Hero experience to the 41 million DS users in North America and Europe so they can play Guitar Hero anywhere, anytime,” said Activision publishing CEO Mike Griffith.

SCEJ’s announced a “Welcome Box” MGS4 bundle for Japan, to include a 40Gb PS3, a DualShock 3, the game and a Sixaxis for 49,800 yen (£240).
“They can’t even give them away!”, etc.
Press release after the link. Still no word on whether or not we’re going to see any MGS4 bundling in Europe, but hope spring eternal.
Update: There are shots of the boxes on Watch Impress. It comes in three colours.

That was the news – Week 15, 2008: Announce the 80Gb PS3 SKU and DualShock 3 for Europe, SCEE, or risk damage later this year
The Americans were pulling little colon-”o” emoticons, but the news was greeted with surly derision in Europe. SCEA announced last week that the MGS4 gunmetal PS3 was to launch in America in limited quantities, the pack to include a 40Gb PS3, a DualShock 3 and the game itself.
America, it seems, is blessed by Sony. The region now has confirmation of the highly desirable gunmetal machine and an 80Gb MGS4 bundle, which will replace the current 80Gb Motorstorm pack in June when the latest Metal Gear launches.
Europe, however, still has no kind of special promotion announced for the launch of MGS4 (although SCEE did tell us this morning that it’s waiting to hear on whether or not we’re going to receive the MGS4 special edition).
Worse, there is still absolutely no official indication that an 80Gb SKU is heading this way and there’s no news on when we’re going to get DualShock 3. The weary hope is starting to turn sour: savvy European punters are simply getting tired of waiting.

A supposed PS3 schedule from Dutch retailer Bartsmit has shown what appears to be dates for DualShock 3 and a Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 pack for Europe.
DualShock 3 is dated at May 2 on the list, the the MGS4 pack apparently launching on June 12, the same day as the game itself launches in Europe.
You can see the image of the schedule here.
The picture was sent in to videogaming247 by a reader from the Netherlands. So many thanks for that. And thanks to Blerk.
