Now I want this and both of my PS3 and my wife’s PS3 work fine so there’s no point (not to mention I have all of the God of War games and pre-ordered Ascension Collector’s Edition) but I love the color. One thing I noticed missing – what’s the price going to be? $299?

wow.. this is very very nice.. I wonder ever happened to abbey rayes or she retired from this or must have gotten a huge promotion.. Tell her everyone said “Hi”

I have 1 question will sony direct be selling these( website) or will gamers have to hit retailer hard and quick for these limted red consoles. Its very hard to beat folks in the stores with rare consoles with some mothers buying 4 ps3.. and thank you Crystal Mackenzie for all you do. :)

This looks like a pretty cool bundle, but most likely the die hard fans have the full collection and launch 60GB PS3s already.

Personally, the red looks a little light to me. If I were to get this, I’d like to see a much deeper red. That, or a white console and controller with a red Kratos tattoo pattern across both.

Also….is it just me, or do these new “super slim” PS3s look really cheap? I’m very happy my launch 60GB is still alive and kicking, because I wouldn’t want to have to buy a super slim. Here’s hoping it stays alive until the PS4 releases.

+ Elvick_ on January 31st, 2013 at 6:32 am said:

@12: It’s not just you. I find the super slim to look really cheap looking, and I thought the regular slim looked cheap. I hope my PS3 lasts forever, because I can’t live without that sexy fat.

According to Amazon, the item will be $349.99, but it looks like it may be a placeholder.

Sony, I’d be onboard if it wasn’t the awful looking new PS3. I’m normally a fan of your hardware, but this new model is ugly, and looks cheap.

Sadly, looks like the price is indeed $350. Many legit gaming sites have this posted.

Why are there always God of War bundles, the PSP had one to. Bring over the other title bundles, like the Metal Gear Rising bundle, the black and blue PS3 is a lot more unique.

+ FeddeCampo on January 31st, 2013 at 6:58 am said:

Wow, I already have the God of War collection but it looks amazing for someone to get into the game for first time.


22

+ ResistanceGTA on January 31st, 2013 at 7:05 am said:

$350 seems highly plausible. A 500 GB bundle with a game (collection or what not) retails for $300, this adds a new game also, and the 30 days of Plus, so, adds up right.

Just remembered I can only have my profile on 2 PS3s, so I guess I can’t get this, as one would have to be non-gaming for me, which is not an option at this rate. Darn, if only we kept the initial value of… 5 I believe.


23

+ TomatoDragon on January 31st, 2013 at 7:06 am said:

Great collection here. I already own all the games, but to anyone looking to get into the series, and a PS3, this is the way to go.


24

+ passivefamiliar on January 31st, 2013 at 7:10 am said:

Whats with all the special edition ps3 modles coming out? I’d like to get them sure…but this really only helps out the rich or people without a ps3. I can’t justify spending an extra 300 bucks for something i already have.

But, when the ps4/orbis ever comes to pass i would really hope that ON RELEASE you have different color schems and options. The bundles are a great selling point though. Keep it up and xbox will be a thing of the past.

Side note, i’d like to see this bundle in more controller/game form. Without the ps3. I could splurge on a game/controller bundle. Start adding that option to these mixes and there may be a spike in sales. Just a thought.

Quite tempting, since my 320 GB slim PS3 is almost full. With more good games joining Playstation Plus IGC, I will need more HDD sooner or later. But I already owned all of the God of War games….

I don’t get why all the hate for the model. I mean it’s smaller than the slim model, uses less energy, didn’t lose the ability to swap drives and has a better finish in my opinion!!


37

+ Mattsta001 on January 31st, 2013 at 7:51 am said:

When is Sony going to release the 12GB SuperSlim that is currently being sold in Europe, in the US? The bundle is nice but $350 is too much and many people would like to buy a console at a budget price and upgrade the HDD themselves.

PS3 got outsold 2 to 1 by XBox 360 in December and that’s likely because you can get a 4GB 360 for less than the cheapest PS3. When the competition outsells you 2 to 1 it says your marketing strategy sucks.


38

+ CrazyGuy62 on January 31st, 2013 at 7:56 am said:

@Mattsta001

That might be true however how many of those 360’s got returned in the following few weeks?? I mean I just traded in my 360 for a ps3!! Also, i will add that a lot of those purchases were for the kinect which was cool for a bit and then novelty wore off and couldn’t stand having it anymore!! Microsoft may have better marketing but when comes to customer confidence, Sony beats them!!

+ Heavenly_king on January 31st, 2013 at 7:58 am said:

Nice bundle, but it would even better if the PS3 instead of only featuring a new color, it had featured a nice God of War franchise art. Similar to what the PS3 bundles in japan look like.

+ spudsudz on January 31st, 2013 at 8:00 am said:

I like the slim PS3 over the new model without the motorized DVD drive… And it is still a lower cost proposition to purchase a model with a smaller hard drive and perform your own upgrade… Unless you haven’t played the GOW series or simply have to have a red system, little appeal here… A GOW graphic on the unit would be more impressive than the overall red treatment to me… And $299.00 sounds better than $350.00…

Whoa Mattsta001! You tryin’ to go Leroy Jenkins into the console war fray? Easy tiger.

Despite being released a full year later than the xBoX, the PS3 has moved 1 million more units as of January 2013.

I would get this if it didn’t look so “cheap”
You compare this special PS3 bundle compare to the Japanese Yakuza, Final fantasy, etc special bundles that actually had a design on the console representing the game. Wow it red, big deal. Why not have the God of War logo on there? Kratos signature tattoo? Kratos himself?

Sony America and Europe need to ask Sony Japan on how to actually design a Limited Special bundle for a game.

I knew a red GOW would come stateside. I’m happy for fans of red, but I was really hoping the blue PS3 would come over too. I’ve had my MGS4 80GB upgraded to 500GB for many years. I know I need to get a new PS3 soon and when I saw that white made its way state side, I thought red and blue would too. Please bring blue over even by its self.

@37 lol its not too much tell us where you can get a 500gb anything for under 350$.? a laptop with cost around $400. No one is hurting for anything becuase of the price, the avg meal in usa out to eat is 35$ a serving. 35×7 days is what? 245$ a week. Now if want really do number the avg meal in the usa is what 8-10$ a serving if you eat 3 times a day out that 24$-30 a day. for 7 days that $210 a week just to eat out..

If think folk cannt afford 350$ your sorley mistaken. The avg american spend $ 300-650+ a month on enetertainment . I understand what its like to not to able afford things and not all have money to spend. but it taxe season man .. let be realistic

Did I say the PS4 was releasing this year? I believe I said I hope my launch 60GB stays alive UNTIL the PS4 is released. The only rumor I was perpetuating was that the PS4 will eventually be released at some point in the future. That sounds more like a fact to me.

*my 1st exampe is family serving out to eat . my second is solo out to eat. people have other bills in life too. It cost sony more to amke then it cost you to buy it. Nothing comes cheap. You may say it looks cheap but truth it future techs and advancement of material to keep the system more stable.

The guy with 150 lb armor may look beastly and win winter and spring . But once you take guy with 150lb pure iron armor on and fight him 45lb armor with equal strength in the summer, he is going to get tore alive becuase he is going to bake in the sun and tired down faster becuase he fighting someone with lighter armor with greater or equal skills and has mass strength as him.

Thats ps3 new look in nut shell, Durability n speed/ power is what matters, its not all about the looks

Honestly nobody knows if there is going be said ps4. To my understanding sony could run the ps3 console for 10 more yr if they wanted, They really dont need a ps4 console in 3-5 yrs time. the way ps3 is doing numbers it would silly release ps4 to soon.
