Official: New 80GB Bundles Not Coming to the UK
This one turned out too good to be true for our UK mates. Official word from SCEE came exclusively to PS3 Attitude this morning stating that the two previously announced 80GB bundles will not be available in the UK:
"The UK does not generally offer hard bundles. These particular bundles are not Europe-wide and will not be offered to the UK market."
It's no surprise for the Blu-ray bundle pack Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis, which will probably be released in France only, but the GT5 Prologue bundle with two DUALSHOCK 3 controllers? That one may leave a mark.
This blogger finds the lack of UK bundles rather odd. North America is getting the Trophy pushing Uncharted bundle this November, France is getting that awesome movie bundle mentioned before, "other" Europeans are getting the spectacular GT5P bundle, but as it stands right now, the UK is left out in the cold. How does this make you feel dear potential UK consumer?*
*Free cake for the first commenter that types "rather cold mate".
