Alright, so we already pretty much knew that Grand Theft Auto IV PS3 bundle was coming thanks to various retailers, but Sony Computer Entertainment Europe finally made it official today. Scheduled to hit on April 29 for 439 Euro, the bundle will include a copy of GTA IV, a 40 GB PS3, and a SIXAXIS (no DualShock 3 - sorry Europe).
SCEA has no plans at the moment to release a similar bundle package in North America.
