PS3 bundles that include a copy of LittleBigPlanet GOTY Edition and a 6ft HDMI cable were spotted in the wild at Fry's Electronics.
Granted, you can pretty much buy HDMI cables rather cheaply now and days - ones that are rather long as well - but at least Sony is starting think about the needs of its customers by including one in a box.
Providing the cost doesn't go up just because a cable is included, it's just a convenient thing to do, really.
Microsoft stopped including the cables with Xbox 360 Elite last year, to cut down on cost and give consumers a brand choice, which is fine really - you just need to shop around a bit, and not let Best Buy or GameStop deter you with $60 price tags.
We looked on Fry's site and didn't see the bundle, so we called and were told that it includes the 250Gb Slim, the game, and the cable for $349.99 - and that it is currently out of stock, but more are on the way.
