    My PS3 is Dead:( Will there be a TLOU Bundle?

    Well, after 7 years, my PS3 has finally died. It went YLOD about a month ago so I did the famous YLOD heat gun and thermal paste repair and it worked fine for a few weeks and some good 5-6 hour sessions but now it has died again. Not YLOD though. Just shuts off with a blinking red light so now I've decided its just time to get a new console.

    Besides all of the games I have that I still want to play, replay, finish, and play for years to come, I still very much want to play a few more games that are coming like TLOU. With the PS4 on the horizon one can't help but to think that there'll be a price drop soon however, if there's a TLOU bundle I would just buy that. Thoughts? Will there be one?

    I mean there could be a bundle, but as far as I can recall they tend to have bundles close to the holidays. Just don't hear much of summer console bundles. We might hear about one soon, but hard to say. Could always buy a used/refurbished unit if looking for some savings.

    When the PS4 gets close to release, I bet there will be a nice price drop to take advantage. Just a matter of playing the waiting game or buying now.

    No. If there was, Naughty Dog would've announced it already along with their collection editions. My PS3 dead about month and it's already back and it's running fine. And this was the second time, I got the YLOD.

    If you like God of War, you could get the God of War Ascension bundle.

    They're likely going to announce a price cut at e3. As for the last of us bundle, I have no idea if they will have one or not.

    This is what I'm hoping for especially considering the PS4 won't be backwards compatible and I still have a plethora of games to play on PS3.

    Mine just died as well, and I also skipped on the God of War console because it was red. I can see why kids would want a red console, but as a grown ass man, that red does not match anything in my living room.

    Tell me about it! I would buy it if it were a black console. Its almost a reddish pink even that'll surely fade to a lighter pink over time. I also hate the cheap sliding top thing too darn it.

    Ya, I bought the black one. The sliding door sucks, and the console is loud. You can really hear the disc spinning and it pisses me off.

    I really don't know if they will have another bundle coming. It is possible. I'm just not sure if they will be doing much with bundles after the next few months due to the PS4 coming soon. Although they did have the U3 bundle so it isn't impossible that they would do a TLOU bundle.

    I don't think there is going to be a PS3 bundle for The Last of Us.

    Naughty Dog and Sony would have announced it already.

    With that packaging, the general consumer and non-gamer may think that Sony is indicating that's the last of the PS3s boosting sales! Stupid joke. Regardless if that's true and available in the US, I will be buying for sure.
