Sony has confirmed that it will release an official Grand Theft Auto IV
PlayStation 3 bundle.
The bundle will be released on April 29th to coincide with the release of the game. On opening the box (that has a GTA IV
picture printed on it) gamers will find one 40GB PlayStation 3, one Sixaxis controller and, of course, one copy of GTA IV
. The bundle comes with a recommended retail price of £319.99. So, basically, you're getting a copy of GTA IV
for £20, since the standard pack without a game costs £299.99.
The pack was rumoured
earlier in the month when listings surfaced on retailers' websites. David Reeves, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's president, obviously knew we were expecting it, because all he bothered to say on the subject was, “We are delighted to offer the millions of PS3 and GTA
fans the ultimate gaming package”.
SPOnG couldn't help but notice that there's no rumble included in the bundle. We tried our luck with Sony to find out when we might see it over here, but were met with, "We have yet to announce a release date for DualShock3 in the UK."
