I would have bet all my 'Sev bucks' that Sony would have dropped the price of the PS3 to better compete with the Xbox 360, which currently romper stomps the PS3 in sales month after month in the US. But it would have been a losing bet.
This is no price drop, but GameStop has a new, exclusive Summer PS3 Bundle that gets you much more bang for your buck.
In the latest GameStop weekly ad, a Summer PS3 Bundle is listed that features a 160GB PS3, a voucher to download Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition, The Sly Collection, and a 30-day trial of PlayStation Plus. All this for $249.99—the same price that just a normal 160GB PS3 console would run you alone. So you're getting over $75 in extras.
If Sony can release similar value bundles at other retailers at this price, Sony might have their first month of besting the 360 in console sales in over a year.
