235w ago - While the much anticipated price drop announcement never actually came to fruition at this year's E3, PlayStation 3 holdouts still might want to keep watch for a new bundle arriving at their local Walmart sometime this year.
To quote: According to photos (via Joystiq) taken by a tipster working at the mega-retailer, you'll soon be able to pick up the 80GB model of the PS3, plus MLB 09 The Show and Quantum of Solace on Blu-ray for just $399.99 - the standard price for the console on its own.
There's no official word on the bundle from Sony at this point, and it's also unclear whether or not it's being planned for multiple retailers or as a Walmart exclusive.
The photos appear legit, though, and let's hope so; Quantum of Solace and MLB 09 would certainly put to shame the Talladega Nights Blu-ray pack-in that early PS3 adopters were subjected to.

For fans world over, Activision announced today that Quantum of Solace will be released on November 4, 2008.
Additionally, beginning September 22nd and continuing through early November, those who pre-order Quantum of Solace through GameStop will receive an exclusive token for a multi-player map pack on Xbox 360 and PS3 that will be available post-launch.
