The Yakuza franchise has a history of prompting some pretty spectacular PlayStation 3 bundles – but this latest redesign isn’t to our tastes. The custom console comes with a gold DualShock 3 controller, a copy of Yakuza 5, an 8GB USB drive, and a beach towel. Yeah, we don’t get the significance of the towel either. It'll launch on 6th December in Japan for ¥37,800.

Meanwhile, Sony has also announced a bundle for Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2. Again, it will include a redesigned console, a Big Dipper-decorated DualShock 3, and a copy of the game. Pre-orders will also receive a smartphone case and a costume code for Kenshiro. It'll release on 20th December for ¥33,170.

We don’t know about you, but we don’t think the new PS3 Super Slim lends itself to system makeovers very well at all.
