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.
