Two ways to sell PS3: with movies or with games

Hot on the heels of Sony Computer Entertainment America’s announcement of a new 80GB PlayStation 3 bundle with Metal Gear Solid 4 and DualShock 3 controller, comes word of another bundle from SCE Europe.

Rather than take a page from the SCEA bundle, which definitely won’t appear until after the release of Metal Gear Solid 4, the SCEE has designed two distinct bundles that will hit stores in March.

As a clear recognition of the PlayStation 3’s draw as a Blu-ray Disc player, on SCEE will be launching on March 19 a special movie-bundle package. The special movie package will include the 40GB PlayStation 3 with Spider-Man 3, 300 and Casino Royale. No Bluetooth remote control is included, but the SIXAXIS packed-in will do the job.

At the end of the month, on March 29, the same 40GB PS3 hardware with the same SIXAXIS controller will include Gran Turismo 5 Prologue rather than any movies.

European gamers may be saddened the the new bundles still include the SIXAXIS controller, rather than the newer DualShock 3. The force feedback controller has been available in Japan since 2007, and has been announced for an April release in the U.S.

Both packages will retail for 399 Euro, and neither will include any video cables for high-definition output.
