Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune PS3 Bundle with 160GB PS3 System

20 August, 2008 PS3, PSN 10 comments

The 160GB PS3 system announced at the GC will be available here as part of a new limited-edition bundle that includes the hardware, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune game, a PLAYSTATION Network voucher for PAIN, and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller. We’re hearing from a lot of you that more PS3 storage space is important, particularly since the launch of our video delivery service, and this new model delivers more memory and a whole lot of content packed-in. The 160GB PS3 has all of the same functionality as the new 80GB PS3 that’s popping up on retailer shelves now, but obviously has twice the HDD space, so you can build levels to your heart’s content in LittleBigPlanet, download a ton of videos, and still have room for your entire music collection. The Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune 160GB PS3 bundle launches in November for $499.99 (MSRP)

Update The 160 gig will also be released in Europe on the 31st october for 449 Euros

Sack Boy to PS3 as Mario to Nintendo What do you think?

4_xy_w7f-m1216826938.jpg

According to Sony’s product marketing manager for LittleBigPlanet Mark Valledor Sony wants to market Sackboy as the face of Playstation. Now I’m not to sure how I feel about this, to be honest I like how the Playstation Platform doesn’t have a game that defines the Playstation Brand.

When you look at Nintendo you think of Mario, and when you think of Mario you think of casual gaming.

When you look at Xbox you think of Halo, a system and a game for the “Hardcore.”

And for right now when you think of the Playstation Brand there is no game or Mascot to define the system so you think of a variety of games from Ratchet & Clank to Metal Gear for example.

But whats your take on the matter at hand?

Games with Trophy Support

These are the games we know so far that will support the Trophy system. I loved Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and will be going back to play that game again, before Metal Gear hit in my opinion (DLB) Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was the best game to hit the Playstation 3.
