219w ago - Last week Sony announced that several new PlayStation 3 250GB bundles will be hitting Europe, and today ElectronicTheatre (linked above) received confirmation on the UK retail pricing for them.
To quote: "The recently revealed 250GB PlayStation 3 will arrive in Europe this Thursday, October 1st 2009, and today the official UK Recommended Retail Price (RRP) and package contents have been revealed.
In addition to the FIFA 10 and Need for Speed SHIFT bundles announced last week, the 250 GB PlayStation 3 will be available as a stand alone unit from October 1st with an RRP of £299.99. The standard package comes bundled with a Wireless DUALSHOCK 3 Controller, an AC Power Cord (or Euro-AV cable, where applicable), an AV cable and a USB Cable, along with the new, small PlayStation 3 model.
Twelve of the fifteen retailers Electronic Theatre contact proposed their own bundles, or a reduced retail price of around £285. The 120GB PlayStation 3 retails with an RRP of £249.99 in the UK."
221w ago - Update: As expected, SCEA denies the photo (just like the PS3 Slim ones) and told Engadget that there's no bundles being planned for America, but that they can't speak for other regions (e.g. Europe, Japan).
Following the PS3 Slim 250GB bundle rumor from last week comes another- Engadget (linked above) is reporting that a 250GB PlayStation 3 Slim Uncharted 2 bundle has now surfaced.
To quote: "No sooner do we get a 250GB Xbox 360 on the horizon does this image land in our tip box, showing a PlayStation 3 slim bundle for Uncharted 2 that just so happens to have that 250GB hard drive we spotted in the FCC last month.
We've been able to independently confirm that it's legit, but beyond that we've got no clue when it'll be announced or any price / release date information. We wouldn't be surprised to see this hit stores in mid-October alongside Uncharted 2, but that's just a guess on our part.
With any luck, SCE exec Kaz Hirai will be shedding some light at his Tokyo Game Show keynote next week - c'mon Sony, don't keep us in the dark too long."
