Sony announced a new 80GB Sony PS3 bundle featuring Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots and the new DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.
The new 80GB Sony PS3 bundle will ship late Q2 and sell for $499. The shipping date for MGS 4 is June 12th according to Amazon.com. I assume that June 12th will be also the shipping date for the new 80GB Sony PS3 bundle.
"Working closely with our retail and publishing partners and sharing our hardware and software roadmaps at Destination PlayStation gives us a great opportunity to outline some key milestones for the year. In response to incredible demand, we will be manufacturing more 80GB PS3s for North America and the Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots 80GB PS3 bundle is an ideal way to offer that continued value to our consumers," said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. "With Blu-ray having won the format war, our stellar software line-up and a broad product portfolio, we will continue to drive the incredible momentum we've been generating since last fall."
With the launch of MGS 4 a Metal Gear Online "Starter Pack" will also be launched to support online game play. Gamers can select a single player experience or take the action online with up to 16 players and battle it out using the latest weapons and stealth techniques.
For those eager to take on Solid Snake's nemesis, Liquid Ocelot, a nationwide pre-sell promotion will enable gamers to pre-order Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and be guaranteed access to a multiplayer beta test for Metal Gear Online scheduled for late April.
MGS 4 is available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
