We're expecting to see plenty of PS3 bundles in 2009, the first of which will be released to coincide with the launch of Killzone 2 at the end of February.

For the price of £299, you get an 80GB PS3, a Dual Shock 3 controller and a copy of Killzone 2, which is being billed as the ultimate first person shooter and a PS3 system seller - Sony hopes.



Tempted?

I MGS4 didnt get me buying a PS3 then this second rate shooter sure as hell won't. Maybe if they dropped the price to a reasonable level (sub £200) and got some exclusives I wanted to play and bought back full ytilibitapmoc (backwards compatibility) I'd think about it.

Damn i not tried the beta, you found it to be second rate? :(

Was looking forward to this as well.
Considering what you get from a PS3 its already good value for money. Especially if you want to watch blu-rays as well. I got my 60GB version when they first came out as a blu-ray player and i paid a hell of alot more that what theya re going for now and i havent looked back once.

I have also owned a wii (got bored of it and sold it) and an xbox 360 (3 red ring of deaths in 3 months) which i got rid of as it was as unreliable and Windows ME.

Im not a fanboy at all. Its the first console ive bought since the ps1. I still prefer the pc. But i consider the ps3 excellent value for money.
For my own preferences the PS3 offers little incentive for me to buy. I thought that 2008 would have been the year that Sony got both hands on the market and did something useful with the console but thus far its still very uninspiring. Killzone 2 looks good, but that's it. I still wont be buying PS3 but I hope that Killzone does well, we need the competition.
the ps3 is competing with the 360. it had a good year last year and even outsold the 360 at one point last year.

it has more or less the same games that 360 has and as got some very good exclusive games like MGS4, LBP and apparently killzone 2.

people moan about the price but dont realize what you get with your money for it. with your 360, add the cost of a HD DVD add on, wireless card and xbox live, you will see that the 360 costs more then a typical sub £280-£300 ps3 that comes with everything besides a headset.
