Playstation 3 500GB Limited Edition God of War: Ascension Legacy Bundle
To anyone considering purchasing this bundle...
I decided to invest in a new ps3 so i decided to preordered this bundle at gamestop. the price seems pretty steep, but its a new console and with a hefty hard drive and 6 great games. so i figured it would be fair deal. once i got it hope and opened it i was immidiatly dissapointed by one and only one thing. the games came in little cardboard sleves, no actual casing. needless to say i wasnt happy. im a big person on having the actual casing and hard copy of my games and movie collections kept nice and tidy in their ORIGINAL cases. some may think this is a frivolous argument, but they way i see it is that if i'm droping 350 bucks (almost 400 after tax) on a bundle, the games should at least come inside of standard casing, it was a big dissapointment. if i knew i would have just bought the white ps3 that comes with a year of playstation plus (which i will probably end up buying anyways for 50 bucks) and god of war ascension and the saga seperatly. but that is just my own opinion. if you dont mind the cases, and already have playstation plus, i would just pick this up. and to anyone wondering the god of war: orgins collection is a download. the other games are spread across 3 disks.
I finally decided to buy a ps3, and considering the price of a new one, I knew i was going to spend atleast $300. So it came down to color, and what games it came with. This set came with all of the God of War games which sounded good, plus, it was a new red edition. I got it at the midnight release and quickly came home and torn open the box. The first thing I noticed was the games were packed in paper slips, instead of a regular disc case. I'm not sure if that is normal just for Sony, but every Xbox I have bought, the games came in a regular plastic case. The Red Super Slim is nice, the slide open disc tray is easy to use. It only has 2 usb ports, which I don't really like. I've used up both already just for my headset and controller. It does come with Two codes for online passes in the box, So if you decided to sell the game, there is still a code available for online multiplayer. The system is actually very quiet, though sometimes it sounds a bit spastic when starting up. Though its nothing to worry about, it plays well. Overall it's a great setup. Getting 6 games, a special edition red system and controller. Definitely money well spent.
I'm a bit confused on some details.
So one thing that's been getting under my skin is that I know the GOW Saga has all 5 games, but the Origins collection is digital. I've heard the code expires in march, not sure on exact date but I hope that's not true. If you know anything about it, please reply and let me know. Now, about the 'street date guarantee' when I was ordering this I didn't see any shipping options for US Overnight like it says to pick. Now I'm not 100% if the 1 day shipping option is supposed to be the same, or if it'd arrive a day after release. But if anyone knows anything about that, it would be much appreciated to shed some light on this topic for me. Thanks! Other then this, super thrilled to get such a great deal, I love God of War.
its a magnificent deal (i have some info too)
for one yes its great i did not buy it yet as i have too many ps3s already but its a great deal but it would have been better if it was a regular ps3 slim red in color these super slims are far too cheaply made
in any case the new game is 50-60 bucks so think about it that just knocks the price down from 350 to 300 or 250 since its in sale for 299.99 at the momenth you get all the other gow games in the saga which is easily valued i would say at 40 bucks to me currently and you get everything in red with 500gb of storage plus a month of psn plus? wow comes as the first word to mind... in any case
i would not worry about them expiring anytime soon there have been numerous times i input a code up to a year after it said its expiration and they still worked if it is within a year after expiration i bet you it will work now 2+yrs i highly doubt but yea 10-12 months you should be fine even if it says its expired sony is just awesome that way
"ARES!! DESTROY MY XBOX360! AND MY LIFE IS YOURS!"
Goodbye xbox360 AND HELLO PLAYSTATION 3!!!!
JUST THE THING TO REPLACE MY HUNK OF JUNK 360!! YAHOO!!!
good system. heads up on something though
The system looks good. It did freeze once right out of the box. Actually had to unplug it which I am not a fan of doing. Havent had anymore issues now that initial setup is complete. As others have mentioned the games come in card board sleeves not actual cases. The chains of olympus and ghost of sparta games are digital download versions the CODES EXPIRE THIS MONTH 3/31/13 so keep that in mind if purchasing after March. But you still get physical discs of GOW 1,2,3 and ascension so your still getting 4 games.
I'm excited about this bundle but the only thing holding me back is if I buy this I won't be able to get the extra pre-order specials like the statue, avatars, multiplayer pack, and etc. Besides that i'm all in!
I love the god of war games and the color red so I'm sold already the only thing I would be worried about is are the games pre loaded onto the system or do you get a game disk for each one. Either way its an awesome deal and someone realty knows what their game fans want.
My PS3 Legacy Begins With God Of War
All i can say is wow. Just traded in my xbox 360 that I had owned for 6 years in for this amazing bundle a couple hours ago and haven't looked back yet! As a first time PlayStation 3 owner, I can't wait to finally enjoy this brand new system and beautiful bundle with one of the greatest video game series of all time, God of War!
This is what got me to buy a PS3
Being a long time Playstation fan-girl, I've waited quiet a while before finally purchasing a PS3. I saw this particular model and I was sold. A little noisy when powering up and reading game discs, but overall it runs beautifully. As with the other comments, my GoW games also came in paper sleeves, but I am okay with that. Overall, this is a good price for everything that you are getting with the system.
