    Sony needs to get the price under £300 and let the customer decide if they want to buy two old games from a selection of games that Sony can't shift.

    seeing as the games are going to be about £50 each then this isn't a bad deal.

    Yes because game/console bundles don't exist on the 360.

    Also game prices are pretty much identical on the 360 and PS3. You would have to be mad to pay £45 for a PS3 game. I picked up uncharted for £35 and Ratchet for £28 both at sainsburys. (I got ratchet when it was 20% off on all games).

    This is rubbish, a few months ago when the 40gb first came out, companies like game and play.com were doing this exact deal (40gb + 2 games) for £300, albeit with a smaller selection of games to choose from.

    Those are high quality, both visually, gameplay and storyline. I dont know why you are knocking them. Heavenly Sword, Resistance and Ratchet and Clank are bad ass and fun as shit. Too bad I didnt get a game with my $600 USD Ps3.

    Wish I knew that when I bought my PS3. Either way I missed out on this deal twice.

    Yea I hear ya there.
    These types of bundles dont really exist in the US.
    I just got lucky since I pricematched an ad error and got a free game and controller w/ my PS3.
