Sony reveals new 80 GB PS3 bundles for Japan

The model will be bundled with a Dual Shock 3, and retails for about US$400.

According to a leaked report at Japanese gaming mag Famitsu, Sony will soon release the 80GB PlayStation 3 model in Japan in black, white and silver varieties.

The model will be bundled with a Dual Shock 3, and retails for about US$400. Sony will include Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Spec III as a pack-in game.

A second bundle will see the 80GB model packaged with two controllers and a copy of LittleBigPlanet. Called the "PlayStation 3 LittleBigPlanet Dream Box," this bundle will retail for about $450.

A separate Dual Shock 3 controller-only bundle will also feature LittleBigPlanet as a pack-in, for about $80. The controller's color will match the system offerings, with black, white and silver available for purchase.

All of these bundles are Japan-only for now, but we see no reason why Sony wouldn't transfer them over to the US, as they did with Metal Gear Solid 4.
