Bundling controllers with popular video games is a fairly common occurrence these days, as Wii Play can attest. The latest controller to be bundled with something is none other than the DualShock 3 with LittleBigPlanet. Exclusive to Japan (for the time being), these bundles will come with a copy of LittleBigPlanet and your choice of a black, white, or chrome/silver DualShock 3 to either match, complement or contrast with your system. It has been tagged at a price point of ¥7980 (Yen), or just about $79 US. Speaking of bundles, a PlayStation 3 system bundle was also announced.
What’s unique about this bundle is that it comes with not one, but two DualShock 3 Controllers. It seems like the perfect way to start out when buying a PlayStation 3 with such a social-centered title. For your hard-earned Yen you get the 80 GB Chrome/Silver PlayStation 3 system and a DualShock 3 controller, plus the LittleBigPlanet bundle. Pricing was not mentioned for this yet, but it shouldn’t cost much more than your typical bundle even with that extra controller. Given that bundles have been spotted in Europe and now have been announced for Japan, it wouldn’t be much of a leap of faith to hope that one is planned for the US/Canada, right?
