GTA IV PS3 bundle coming to Europe

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 08:09 AM MDT | By Neil
Swedish retailer Webhallen has today revealed the first image of a new PlayStation 3 bundle which will be launching in Europe alongside Grand Theft Auto IV. The bundle includes the standard 40GB PlayStation 3 console and a copy of the game.

The price listed is 4499kr, which is the same as the Gran Turismo 5 bundle that launched just over a week ago. While availability in other countries has not been announced, this indicates that the GTA bundle should sell for 299.99 in the United Kingdom and 399.99 elsewhere.

Most likely no. I'd rather have that MGS4 80 GIG bundle! :D

I thought it would be the 80GB with BC.
I don't have a PS3 yet but will will be getting one before GTA IV because I preordered for PS3.
I was holding out for a PS3 with BC

Is this 100% confirmed?
It's very difficult to do a PS3 bundle with a 3rd party title.

It requires VERY close partnership.

Excellent move by Sony if true.

[i]PS: I know MGS4 is a 3rd party title but it's a PS3 exclusive one, not to mention Sony and Hideo Kojima always had very good relations.[/i]

Yeah, it will help Sony sell some more PS3 consoles as well as GTA4's for PS3 without additional content.
By the way, what is BC? (back compatibility?)

That box is almost worth moving to Europe and purchasing another PS3 for.
