Maybe it's just a way of saying, "hey, the Network is back online so it's time to play the most popular online game."

Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC has announced the limited edition PlayStation 3 Call of Duty: Black Ops bundle, which combines a 160GB PS3 system and the "best selling PlayStation 3 title of all time." This package will be available in just a few days time on May 31 and as a bonus, it'll also feature the First Strike Content Pack. The price is sitting pretty at $299.99, which essentially means you're getting Black Ops and the DLC for free. Said SCEA vice president of product marketing, Scott Steinberg:

"PlayStation 3 delivers the ultimate high-definition entertainment experience, offering a built-in Blu-ray player, free online gaming through PlayStation Network and the premiere destination for stereoscopic 3D content. Combining these features with the massive blockbuster that is Call of Duty: Black Ops, a title credited for having the biggest entertainment launch of all time, PlayStation and Activision, have put together an unrivaled entertainment offering for gamers."

Mark Lamia, Studio Head of Treyarch added that this bundle is "perfect for anyone looking to bring home an incredible entertainment experience," especially those who have 3D-ready HDTVs. The latest Call of Duty still sits on the top 10 sales charts 6 months after it launched; that should probably tell you something.

Is there anybody out there that wants BO and a PS3 but has yet to get either?

Will be surprised if this sells well.

I know right, well I guess Sony is trying to make sure everyone who doesn't already have black ops and a 160gig ps3 gets it now and get prepared for the upcoming behemoth that will be MW3

Honestly speaking, it's rather disappointing to me to see COD as the PS3's all time best seller.

So many better games out there.

FPS require little skill. It's basically point and shoot.

Now while I understand that some are more skilled then others, but with varying net conditions, it's impossible to see who's the best in online multiplayer.

Cute that he mentions 3D. Is he still unaware that no one cares about that? Is he unaware that BO's graphics were gimped so they could add that nonsense feature? When devs get caught up in fads, the games they make suffer. But I guess if you're going to get BO, it might as well be for free in some bundle.

You may be right about 3D in games as it stands now.

But this might not always be the case. As I've said before Michael Pachter recently got to see Uncharted 3 running in 3D and he was totally blown away by what he saw. It does make sense when you think about it. The people at Naughty Dog are like sorcerers when it comes to game development. If anyone can bring 3D gaming to it's full potential, they can.

No way am I wearing glasses to see 3D. Not in a theater. Not on my couch. I don't think I have the eyes for it. The image always looks murky and muddled and my eyes and brain start to hurt. 2D images are crisp and clear and that's what I like. =D

@Claire C
As the movie goes on your eyes get used to it so you have to give 3D a chance at least. This is gonna be pretty funny when 3D TVs become more affordable and everyone has one

Well of course I've sat through an entire 3D movie. I've sat through a couple of them now. I wouldn't have commented if I had only stayed a few seconds. 😛

I agree w/ Alienange; f. a. d. all the way.

I for one, wholeheartedly DO want 3D.

Sadly I just can't afford it now that I'm out of work.

And besides, my recently thinned-out wallet just sits here constantly taunting me, while smirking at me with that now-empty look that says "I won't be putting out for you anymore".

I'm playing Socom 4 in 3D right now an i must say it might be the best 3D game out so far, if your on the fence or think its a gimmick. Your so wrong it makes the game so much more enjoyable, I can't wait for all games to be 3D cause 2D sucks anymore.

OMG never thought that would happen. A call of duty game on ps3 bundle.

I thought cod was exclusive to xbox or is it just the dlc?

No sha4dowknight05

CallofDuty franchise is not exclusive and neither is the DLC…Well the DLC is time exlusive to 360 for a month b4 the ps3… But honestly it's a smart move from sony since the the game is the best seller of all time and it has the craziest fanbase i've ever seen… And what better way to introduce 360 finatics to ps3 than a free copy of their favorite game… it's a foot in the door to 360 only gamers and once they see the crazy exclusives sony has, they'll be hooked… It's sad i kno ppl that only own 360s and don't kno what is uncharted,resistance, or killzone series

I don't see why it wouldn't have a controller, how are you going to be able to play it if the controller wasn't added? Every bundle I've seen has everything you need besides an HDMI not in the box

NiteKrawler,

You can get the PS3 wind-up crank as future DLC from Antivision, & for the incredibly low, low, price of 3 easy installments at only $199.99 each.

But if you act right now, you can pay the full price now & save a whopping 10 cents off your shipping order.

So don't delay, call right now…..

Bundle a game that everybody has and most people hated, six months later… really?

just another gimmick to rake in some last minute greenbacks before the MW3 onslought. Black ops is probably the worst iteration to bundle w/ a PS3, I mean look at sony's bundle track record. Most bundle games are the best of the best. MW2 bundle would probably be worth it, but danny's right, why bundle a game with a console thats just average?

wish sony would do what M$ does and give us specially skinned consoles for these bundles, instead of the normal ps3 crap!
id kill to have a ps3 skin of hades, poesidon, or kratos ripping helios head clean off!
or that titanium blue ps3 they gave out at SEMA, that thing was HOT!

You can buy skins off of Amazon, I'm not sure what they have though, You'll have to look.

Damn, if I had only known about this 2 weeks ago before I wound up buying my new slim.

"OH WAIT"…I managed to get a $369.99 320gb Move bundle for only $294.99", and I'm ecstatically elated that I did…."NEVER MIND"

Anyway, thank goodness Sony didn't decide to bundle a headset with it, cause we'd certainly have a lot more of the "FEW" trash-talking racist young maggots that I've heard late night on KZ3's MP maps.

(BTW, I wonder if their parents know their ankle-biters are still up playing at 3AM to 6 AM…….or if those parents even care seeing they've let the kids keep their consoles in their own bedrooms without a hint of supervision).

FINALLY!
WTF took so long!?
this would be the perfect game to bundle with the ps3 since its, well, its only the best selling piece of entertainment of all time!
plus it has pretty good 3D support.
not great, motorstorm pacific 3D rift, SOCOM 4 and crysis 2 are allot better, but at least its allot better then KZ3s!
i was really disappointed by that.
especially after all the hype and attention the devs gave it, i was expecting allot!
theres not as large a sense of depth, normally 3D games make you feel like you can dive into the screen!
3D games normally lift out of the screen so instead of it looking like your running in the TV it looks like your running towards it.
3D games normally have a popped out HUD, and even further popped out cursor.
3D games normally have heaps of effects popping out, like sparks, fire, particle effects, smoke, dirt, debris, snow, water.
KZ3 had neither of those!
in fact i had to take my glasses off to make sure it was in 3D the effects were so minimal i thought there was something wrong with my TV!

You've got a 3D tv? So Crysis 2 is good in 3D? I'd love to try that!

its ok.
i was really disappointed by it after all the talk they did for it, and saying JC was blown away by it!
best 3D game on ps3 ive played has to be motorstorm pacific 3D rift.
cheapest, and by far the best 3D effects!
wipeout 3D is really cool too, just a few technical glitches that hurt it.
