I cant say this bundle is very appealing, I will have to give microsoft
the nod in having the best game pack in bundle going on right now with their elite
packing in Halo 3 and Fable 2

A Killzone 2/LBP pack would be sweet for new buyers

MLB The Show is like one of Sonys best selling first party games, i have it and its really good. I dont think its good enough to package with consoles though, i mean thats for sports guys more than anything. Quantem of solace? Bestbuy just had a sale to get that out of the store for like 10 bucks lol.

MLB no doubt is a good game, but I question its level of appeal to a broad audience outside baseball enthusiasts

yea it is a good game that i dont think has the appeal to sell the system. GoW III might be a good bundle when it comes out

I think a GOW3 bundle will be a no brainer

GOW series is a proven success, KZ2 was on shakey ground from its lackluster showing on the PS2 despite them knowing what a great game they had

Killzone 2 wont exactly move consoles, but thats not why it wont be bundled. I dont see GoW3 doing it either. The only reason i say that is if you go buy a console, what game are you gonna pick up alongside it? Killzone 2. Maybe when its fanbase grows i could see it, and sales kinda slow down (like MLB sales did). To me, at a time like this, it just doesnt seem like a good idea to put a good selling game along with the system.

yeah i dont know how they decide what games to bundle but i am sure they have a good reason for doing it so i wont argue with them

I believe there was a LittleBigPlanet bundle in Europe as I remember seeing a video on YouTube of someone who had just purchased one to replace his broken system. Although with Sony's history of bundle's in North America I can't see it being any popular game anytime soon, we have an Uncharted bundle and that's it, and when the Uncharted bundle was released the game had already been out for well over a year at least and past bundle's weren't much better, my own bundle included MotorStorm and that was pretty much a launch title and was over a year old when the bundle launched. Maybe a year or so down the road there will be a Killzone 2 bundle in North America but not for now as Killzone 2 is still selling fairly well. Even the XBOX bundle, Halo 3 will be 2 years old this September so I'm sure at this point bundling it isn't a huge loss and Fable 2 is probably past the point of steady sales so again not a huge loss.

Sony could do a better job with the bundling here. Even an Uncharted and MLB 09 would've been better. I have MLB 09 and its a great game but not a system seller.

Spiderman 3 isnt exactly worth mentioning either lol. But what about ghostbusters or something, they have so much better than quantem of solace....

Eh, Spiderman 3 is the 2nd fastest grossing movie of all time

Yeah thanks to Spiderman 1 and 2. Im a spidy fan but Spiderman 3 was disapointing, and its been out so long that all the talk about it is completely negetive now. Would be a mistake to bundle it now.
