Crystal MacKenzie's Avatar + Posted by Crystal MacKenzie on May 09, 2012 // Brand Marketing Manager, Hardware

Hey shooter fans! By popular demand, we are bringing you an epic bundle on May 25th, featuring one of the best-selling first person action games of all time.

PlayStation is partnering with Activision to pair the blockbuster and record-setting video game franchise Call of Duty along with the best console for core gamers, the PS3. Today we are announcing a Limited Edition PS3 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 bundle which includes a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the hit title that set a new entertainment launch record upon its release in November, and a 320GB PlayStation 3 System, for only $299.

COD MW3 Bundle Pack set 1300px

Right out of the box, you will have instant and free access to the action-packed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 online multiplayer experience through PlayStation Network. If you haven’t already, it’s time to join in on the action.

This is a great option for those of you who already own a PS3 or for those who want to become a part of the PlayStation family.

back in the days, I bought a MGS4 Gunmetal Grey PS3 limited edition. That was indeed a “LIMITED” edition.

This thing you are offering now: LAME!!!!!

I have to side with the majority on this one. This bundle is kinda lame.
Why not release some custom skins for the PS3? Or put a bigger focus on promoting exclusive content?

The blog and the stuff we already have is nice and I’m not complaining about it, but it would be even better if you guys released a StarHawk designed PS3 bundle. Or an Infamous2 designed PS3 bundle, or you know.. Actually released the Twisted Metal PS3 to the public. ( Personally, I’d love to see a Infamous Festival of Blood PS3 with the barbed cross engraved on the top with Bloody Mary and Cole on it )

I remember back during the PS2 era you guys were releasing different colored PS2s, multiple PS2 skins and all kinds of stuff to make your system stand apart from the crowd. What happened?

Wow! A whole savings of $10!!!!

PS3 = $250
MW3 = $60

This “limited” bundle (again, what exactly is limited about this when the console and game are in huge supply?) = $300

LOl cod bundle .. what we really want is a bundle of psn games like jounrey . costume quest. stacking, joe danger . datura, ps home starter packs Make a bundle of 5 great selling psn games with psn home starter pack, 1 game with ps move functions at that price 299 and you will see that bundle console fly off the shelves ..

I think you be think ing about your own rather than think about other . we know cod sell console but alot these games to do and it would cost you less to do so. This is how expand a fan base of those small compaines as well as sony.

As for the cod bundle .. I understand sell units but its alot differ ways to do that and every one in every genre is happy.

So this is the best marketing could come up with? Epic FAIL!

Sony PlayStation 3 Limited Edition Modern Warfare 3
It Only Does The Same Ole Thing…with a different box.

@64 might b on to something. A PS3 AND VITA BUNDLE..WITH A CROSS GAMEPLAY GAME FOR EACH SYSTEM..WOULD BE THE BEST OPTION AVAILABLE.

Please consider what everybody is saying, Sony. Specially colored systems will sell. You should offer different color options for PS4 at least – globally.

Why is there a smaller PS3 with DS3 controller in the picture? How does QC miss that?

i’ll pass SONY, too little, too late, you forgot Activision gave us the short end of the stick with Cod Elite and DLCs

+ Faythi on May 10th, 2012 at 2:32 pm said:

Just another slap in the face. Completely agree with anyone else. And why is this a great option for someone who already owns a ps3? You get nothing special from it. What a let down. I sold my PS3 for a Vita when I got my new job and wouldn’t be around much. But I’ve finally have some free time and have thought about getting another ps3. This bundle does not entice me at all into making the decision to get another ps3.

And popular demand? Where was this demand? It has been obvious Sony doesn’t listen to the customer base. Now words are being put into our mouths.

CoD? *yawn*….Now if you were introducing a Journey ps3 Bundle….i’d be all over that!

Bundle, huh?

Was Call of Duty not making enough money on overpriced map packs and online passes or something?

DIAF.

I think its a pretty good deal. The PS3 has a 320gig HDD..
But I can see why people would want a skin on it.

+ jimmyfoxhound on May 10th, 2012 at 4:13 pm said:

Should have made a Starhawk bundle.. you know, for that exclusive game you have? I know I know CoD is where the money is at but it’s all so… bleah.. I’m not much of an online player but I’m having a blast with Starhawk, here it is the day after release and you’re promoting a game that caters to your competition and not a single post about Starhawk! Why bother with exclusives??

Hello?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Are you out of touch stock riding puppets reading this?!

This should have been a Star Hawk bundle…shame on you Sony, shame on you!?

+ PhillyTheCat on May 10th, 2012 at 6:26 pm said:

Sony, I love you all but I must say that I am truly shocked at what you are trying to accomplish here. Look at the rating. Even the Uncharted 3″BUNDLE” came with a code for a 30 day PS+ membership, I own it. How is this a Limited Edition if you are offering less and nothing in the box is “limited” except the box, which I am sure is not that exciting or fancy up close and personal?! You got less than Two Weeks to make this a great selling bundle. Listen to the fans on this one. I believe you can win some new fans here if you do it right.


120

+ WastelandDan on May 10th, 2012 at 6:29 pm said:

And the lack of anything LIMITED in these “limited” bundles infuriates the crap outta me.

Give me a Starhawk bundle with Teal LED lights on the console and controllers instead of green and red…it would look like its powered by that lovely colored energy from the game! Add a decent size hard drive with a copy of the game to boot and you might have something you can truley call “limited” for once.

Seriously, just stop with these types of things if you cant deliver what MOST people consider an industry standard for what qualifies as “limited” editions of a console bundle.

+ saab01 on May 10th, 2012 at 6:43 pm said:

This bundle is a little too late to be honest. The game has been out for 6 months now and with now custom background on the PS3 it doesn’t seem that attractive of an offer.

Hi Crystal! Have you seen The Avengers yet? No? Okay, I’ll pick you up at 8:00.

Bring over some of the awesome Japanese PS3′s. Those are real limited edition PS3s.

Why not add a MW3 faceplate in the pack? that at least would be something.

I cant begin o imagine how the Blog staff even feels when this “Limited Edition” comes across their desk… “The Gamers are going o rip this post apart” must be their words!

Sony seriously must just stop calling this a Limited Edition Bundle when someone can simply go and by this system, spend $50 more and get a 500gb hdd then get any NEW game they want and be better off.

How is it when you put 3 full clips into someones back while they are laying there sniping, they don’t die? He simply stood up and killed me with 1 FREAKING BULLET!!! I have found many players like this recently and have reported them ALL!! Yet, nothing is done about them! Playstation is starting to really piss me off!! I should just smash my vita, my ps3 and everthing else that has anything else to do with playstation and throw it out the window. Looks like Xbox will be moving in soon! I would rather pay the money and not deal with all the aimbots and cheaters than deal with this crap!!! You guys need to step up and start banning anyone who cheats for life!!!

But of course you guys wont read any of these posts! You guys are more concerned about making new things that make you money and forgetting about the customers you already have! You never read the reports that we send so why would you ever read these? People are wasting their freaking time posting things here just like me!!! LOSERS! LOSERS! LOSERS! LOSERS! LOSERS! LOSERS!

@129 xbox has cheater too in there version on cod. So its not just a ps problem its gaming over all problem. it really fall on the devs of these games.. they keep these exploitable codes right on the disk during launch.. Sony cant much on how they code the games..

Sony just protect the server side of games they have on the servers they cant do much about unfiar play beside ban for awhile..Its really a acitvision dev problem its the the codes they leave in the game and gamer exploit these codes.. If more than 20 people have them then that right there should tell you the game coding protection is flawed.. This is why release cod 2 times a yr this their answe to detering cheats, when it should be get these cheat codes off launch titles

Activison just loves ripping PS3 players off, what a waste of a bundle.

the uncharted 3 bundle was better, even though the ps3 was the same. sure you arent really paying for the game, but to be 6 months late, sony, cmon man. yall really need to do a better job.

What is this befoolery? Look at this list of limited edition consoles available for import:

http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-14-71-bo-49-en.html

I mean you guys even have a Ni No Kuni white and gold PS3! Not to mention the black and red ff13-2 ps3, gold one piece ps3, etc. The best yall could think of for a new bundle in the U.S. was MW3? Not even a camo ps3 with camo controllers? I know COD is the best selling game in the states, but some creativity with the bundles (like SCEJ has shown) would’ve been greatly appreciated.

If you like call of duty but think a different game should be a bundled than check out some of my starhawk videos on youtube. I think starhawk is better than call of duty and more entertaining than call of duty. Battlefield is a close second.

geez guys calm down when I got my ps3 bundle. I got a 160GB PS3 slim and the game killzone 3(which I don’t even play maybe like 3 times but I never played since. Sony is stupid they should have offered me the 320GB ps3 when I bought mine because killzone wasn’t worth it….
