Man, Japan gets all the coolest bundles.

According to Andriasang , Konami has confirmed a special PlayStation 3 bundle, scheduled to arrive in Japan in December. The Castlevania: Lords of Shadow value pack will feature a Charcoal Black 160GB PS3, a copy of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow , and the Best Budget (Greatest Hit) version of Konami's other classic, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots . It'll launch on December 16 and carry of price tag of 37,980 yen so if some Japanese gamers are a little behind this generation, they can start by catching up with MGS4. Oh, and purchasers will also land 20,000 Reward Points for use in Metal Gear Online , which will be included with MGS4. This is the kind of package that should appeal to anyone who has yet to pick up the PS3; in our estimation, MGS4 is one of the top two titles of the generation (the other being Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ).

Will the bundle come here to the US? Eh, probably not. But one can always hope, right?
