Sony pledging significant donation to superstar's charity
Brazilian racing icon Ayrton Senna may have been inexplicably absent from F1 2013, but he will appear in Gran Turismo 6 as part of a post-release update charting the life of the motorsport superstar. The snippet was appropriately announced during the Brazil Game Show earlier today, where...
Watch Dogs’ unexpected delay may be a thorn in Sony’s promotional plans for the PlayStation 4, but it’s also a big concern for consumers who have pre-ordered the title as part of a meaty next generation bundle. Fortunately, both Amazon and GameStop have confirmed that customers in North America will
Take the plunge
Sony originally indicated that it intended to sell its recently announced PlayStation 4 Mega Bundle for the same price as the Xbox One, but that didn’t quite pad out in the end. Most retailers are currently carrying the UK package for around £449.99, which is a little more expensive than the Xbox One’s default £429.99 option...
Time to level up
Specialist retailer GAME may have been quickest to contact customers about Sony’s recently announced PlayStation 4 bundles, but Amazon.co.uk is gradually catching up. The online megastore has started reaching out to those with pre-orders via email, offering several opportunities t
Because everyone loves a big box
If you’ve already pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 in the UK, chances are you’ll have been contacted by your retailer of choice regarding one of several Sony sanctioned bundles. Unfortunately, the platform holder has been curiously vague about these packages in the public space, leaving it down to IGN to actually...
Travel through time
Those of you looking to save a few pennies this holiday may want to keep your eagle eyes on the Assassin’s Creed Heritage Collection. The compilation – due out in the UK on 8th November – includes Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed 2: Game of the Year Edition, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed:
Similar price, bigger box
The tasty Killzone: Shadow Fall bundle that leaked out of Amazon France earlier in the year is legit – and will deploy in the UK. Sony Computer Entertainment UK gaffer Fergal Gara confirmed the snippet in an interview with Eurogamer.net earlier today, adding
While the PlayStation Vita has struggled to make much commercial headway on its own steam, the portable looks set to be refreshed by the PlayStation 4. You’ll need one of the handhelds to get the most out of Sony’s next generation system, with features such as Remote
Reasonably priced, too
You can already pick up a PlayStation 4 bundle if you look hard enough. Most retailers are creating custom packages in order to entice consumers, but nothing official has been announced. That hasn’t stopped Amazon France from leaking what appears to be the first Sony composed hardware bundle, though, which collates the...
The concept of a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita bundle has existed since the beginning of time, but rumour has it that Sony is actually planning to officially introduce the chunky combo later this year. A “well-placed anonymous” source has told Machinima that the platform holder will dep
To date, Sony’s only really announced one version of the PlayStation 4. The competitively priced $399.99 option includes the console and a DualShock 4, but the platform holder is considering deploying some bigger bundles. In an interview with MCV, SCEE president Jim Ryan added that larger packages are something that the platform...
Pick up an 8GB memory card with 10 free games
We all know that the price of the PlayStation Vita’s memory cards is an enormous issue, but Sony is attempting to offset the problem by launching a new line of 8GB cards bundling ten downloadable titles. Due out on 21st June in Europe for €39.99, the tempting Mega Pack includes an empty storage...
Gives you wings
Whether its electricity or good old-fashioned gasoline that gets you going, Sony’s brand new North American PlayStation 3 hardware package should have you racing to your nearest store. Dubbed the ‘Legacy’ bundle, the $299.99 offering collates a 500GB PS3 Super Slim system with Gran Turismo 5 XL, inFAMOUS 2, and a 30-day...
The price of PlayStation Vita memory cards remains a sore point for some people. While the system itself is not particularly expensive for what you get, the storage options – which range anywhere from £15/$20 to £60/$100 – are prohibitively costly. However, it seems that Sony’s hoping to mitigate that issue by bundling digital...
While the PlayStation Vita is about to get significantly cheaper in its native Japan, the cost of memory cards still remains a problem. However, Sony hopes to rectify that issue by introducing a new ‘Bonus Bundle’ in the region, which includes a 3G console and a 32GB memory card for just ¥24,980 ($269). That’s the same price...
Think about it
Wannabe deities will be able to augment their shrines with a limited edition God of War: Ascension hardware bundle this March.

The controller sports the same...
If you’re looking for an easy entry into the God of War series, then look no further than Sony’s enormous Legacy Bundle. The hardware package – due out on 12th March in North America – includes a 500GB ‘Garnet Red’ PlayStation 3 Super Slim, a copy of God of War: Ascension, a copy of the God of War: Saga (which features...
Cut and take it
We think it’s safe to say that custom console redesigns just don’t work as well with the PlayStation 3 Super Slim. Previous hardware bundles for Yakuza 3 and Ni No Kuni have prompted stunning new styles – making this Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance tie-in look bland by comparison. The console – due out on 21st February in...
If you haven’t delved into the wonderful world of PlayStation Vita ownership just yet, Sony has announced a new North American bundle designed to get you on board. The attractive $299.99 package includes a 3G console, a 12 month subscription to PlayStation Plus, a download voucher for Unit 13, and a completely useless 4GB memory card...
Earlier in the year, Sony stated that it was not averse to the idea of bundling the PlayStation 3 with the Vita. "We'd have nothing against that whatsoever," SCEUK’s Fergal Gara told CVG. "And it's not out of the question that we would do that this Christmas if we wanted to.” It turns out that those weren’t empty words. The UK arm...
You really can’t argue with the value proposition of some of these PlayStation 3 collections. Over the past couple of months, Sony has bundled up some of its best first-party games – and now Resistance is set to join the reasonably priced party. For just $39.99 you’ll be able to scoop up complete access to Resistance: Fall of Man,...
A kind of magic
Wonderbook: Book of Spells is brimming with potential. The augmented reality PlayStation 3 exclusive has the opportunity to tempt both hardcore Harry Potter fanatics and casual gamers alike – assuming Sony gets its marketing department in order. It’s made the first step by announcing that newcomers in Europe will be able to...
Call of Duty is the biggest brand in gaming at the moment, and Sony’s latest limited edition PlayStation 3 hardware bundle clearly reflects that fact. Scheduled for release on 25th May in North America, the set bundles a 320GB PS3 with a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for $299. That means you effectively get the game for free. It’s...
The PlayStation Vita is an expensive system, there's no denying that
Having already got an extensive hands-on with the device, we think it's worth the price of entry — but we can understand some readers being hesitant to splash out the cash, especially with the system's proprietary memory upping the cost quite significantly. Thankfully, British retailer GAME appears to have come up with a..

We always suspected Sony would sell more PlayStation 3s if it put more images of Emma Watson on the system's box
(Pre-horrific haircut, of course.) It's taken a while, but it turns out SCEA's finally gotten the message. The platform holder's announced a new bundle for North America, sporting a 160GB PS3, a Blu-ray edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two in both 2D and 3D, and a..

It's hard to believe that it's only been a year since the PlayStation Move hit store-shelves
The catalogue of supported games has been growing steadily ever since release — and continues to catch steam as the Holidays approach. In order to recognise the abundance of content, SCEA has announced two new PlayStation Move bundles for North America. For existing PlayStation 3 owners, there's a new..
If you pre-order
Sony already revealed the North American PS Vita release date — 2/22/12 — but if you simply cannot wait that long, the company is giving you the chance to get your mitts on the system one week early by pre-ordering a newly announced PS Vita bundle. The bundle — which currently is only slated for "select retailers" in...
While a lot of people choose to get furious at business moves, sometimes you just have to tip your hat and pay respect to a good marketing move when you see one
The PlayStation Vita 'First Edition Bundle' that Sony's announced for North America this afternoon is one of those moments. It's a stroke of genius, and here's why. In North America, those that plump up for the special pre-release edition..
Sackboy still wants your love
LittleBigPlanet 2 was released months ago, but Sony is keen to keep its clothy character in the forefront of gifters' minds this Christmas with a relaunch of the game in two new packs. First up is the LittleBigPlanet 2 Special Edition, which includes the game and $35 worth of additional content. Top of the list is the...

Includes other exclusives as well
We previously reported that the once Wii exclusive GoldenEye 007 is coming to PS3 with PlayStation Move support, but new details have been scarce since the game's initial announcement. TGS 2011 put this news lull to an end and we’ve got exciting news that GoldenEye 007: Reloaded will be releasing in North America...
We think it's great that Sony's regularly shipping unique PS3 hardware in Japan, but after some fantastic bundles, we're not too hot on Ni No Kuni's supposed 'magical' edition
It just looks garish to us. Does anybody actually like it? It's out November 17th.
With Level-5 and Studio Ghibli's Ni No Kuni just weeks away from its Japanese release on PlayStation 3, Famitsu has revealed a new PlayStation 3 hardware bundle to celebrate the release of the game
Entitled the 'Magical Edition' the special hardware package comes in white and gold. ¥33,780. [Thanks Andriasang]

It's announced a brand-new bundle on the PlayStation Blog, featuring copies of Madden NFL 12 and Need For Speed: Shift, in addition to a 2GB memory stick. For the $159.99 asking-price, it's a decent bundle — especially if you're looking to catch up on PSP content now the..

The package contains Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters, a PlayStation Eye camera and PlayStation Move controller.

It's not really a rumour is it
Everyone's expecting the PlayStation 3 to get a price-drop this year, and there's no better positioned event than August's GamesCom. Sony's known for bringing the heat to the European event, while its competitors flounder. Sounds like a no-brainer to us. MCV's got the report, citing a new price-point of between £179.99 and £199.99 will be announced for the PS3 at..
'Tis the season for hardware bundles apparently
After this afternoon's Call Of Duty: Black Ops bundle announcement, Sony has followed up with a pretty decent PSP set. The package — which can be yours for a bargain $159.99 — includes a PSP-3000 in Piano Black, a 2GB memory stick, a copy of MLB 2011: The Show and Gran Turismo PSP. Not a bad set this actually, especially if there's a backlog of..

What a racquet
Virtua Tennis 4 is on the way to Move in April, and Sega wants to help you get into the swing of things with a new bundle for the game. While we've seen plenty of bundles including Move and the game at hand, Sega's taking a different approach with VT4, bundling the game with two plastic racquet attachments for existing controllers...
It should for $149.99

If you're a North American reader and you've still yet to pick up a PlayStation 3, SCEA's announced a pretty good deal for you
The Killzone 3 hardware bundle not only includes a copy of Guerrilla Games' latest shooter, but also a 160GB PS3 for $300. Essentially, you're getting the game for free. Not a bad deal, eh? The bundle's out February 22nd, same day as the game.

Grab a console or Starter Pack
LittleBigPlanet 2 is on course for a big debut when it reaches PS3 owners later this month, but if you're in the UK and haven't yet got a PlayStation Move Starter Pack – or, more importantly, a PlayStation 3 – there are a few packages on the way to cater for your needs. Game is offering a 320GB PS3 with the game...
The PlayStation 3's bulky 320GB variant was previously only available when bundled with the PlayStation Move
But Sony's announced that's set to change today, as standalone versions of the beefy hardware ship to stores throughout North America. The system will set you back $349.99 (while the Move bundle retails for $399.99), so it still kinda makes financial sense to pick up that Move version..
