February 8, 2007 - Last week, we reported on a PlayStation 3 hardware bundle, being released to Japan on 3/1 to commemorate the release of Bandai Namco's Gundam Musou. Today, Bandai Namco made an official announcement of the package.
Officially called the "Gundam Musou with PlayStation 3 (HDD 60GB)" set, this package includes a 60 Gig PS3, a copy of Gundam Musou, and a few bonus items: a Gundam Musou technical file, a Gundam Musou character file, and 8 Gundam Musou art cards. Pricing is set at "open," which means the actual price could vary based on the retailer.
We've uploaded a picture of the included items to the media section, linked to http://ps3.ign.com/articles/762/762676p1.html.
This is the first official hardware/software bundling for the Japanese PS3, which has hit tough times at retail following the start of the new year.
