New PS3 Starter Pack for Europe

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is looking to entice gamers by offering a brand new 40GB starter pack for the PS3 which will include two of the more critically acclaimed games the system has to offer.

Due to release this week, the new starter pack will include the 40GB PlayStation 3 model packed in with two SixAxis controllers so that gamers will be ready to play with a friend right out of the box. The bundle will also be shipping with a copy of Ratchet & Clank: Future Tools of Destruction and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. The bundle will carry a price tag of EUR 499.

This bundle is too good of an offer to pass up seeing as Sony’s original 60GB starter pack has already been phased out. That original starter pack included Resistance: Fall of Man as well as a copy of Motorstorm. Although both of those games could easily carry their weight, the reception behind Uncharted and Ratchet & Clank has been overwhelming and great games to show off the system’s capabilities.

This new starter pack was currently announced for Spain but it is safe to assume that the rest of Europe should be seeing this bundle showing up at some point.
