Sony Euro PS3 Bundles

Following the return of the 80GB PS3 to the US through a Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle, Sony is set to supply Europe with its own custom editions, according to a French site's leak. Since confirmed by Sony's European gaming branch, a special version of the 40GB system will ship with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue when the racing game ships later in the spring; pricing should be unchanged at 399 ($604) on the mainland and will likely keep its existing UK price.

A separate bundle has also been revealed that has yet to be officially recognized. The Movie Pack would replace the game with three separate Blu-ray movies and would be geared to customers buying the console for its video player abilities. Unlike the 40GB Japanese and North American bundle that shipped only with Spiderman 3 as its pack-in movie, the European system would include both the Sony movie as well as the studio's other popular title Casino Royale. The third-party movie 300 from Warner Bros. would also be included in the box, which would also maintain the same 399 price as the existing PS3.

Sony expects to ship the GT5 bundle in late March alongside the release of the game itself, but has not said when the Movie Pack will appear. No mention has been made of offering the 80GB console in Europe.
