Oh Sony, you've given us so much. From ads like the one above, to massive security breaches, to Wonderbook. But seriously, I love my Playstation 3, which I got on launch day in North America, that against all odds is still running smoothly almost seven years later.


I had to do a triple take when I saw this bundle, partially because it's really good, and also because it's very confusing.

For $323 at Newegg, you get the following:
• Playstation 3 250GB with included controller
• Extra controller (currently $45 on Amazon though they've of course been cheaper)
• $50 PSN card (free money)
• Whatever Playstation Plus trial is included (it's not being clear about it)
Bioshock Infinite
Max Payne 3
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete
Burnout Paradise (not sure if this is all DLC included or not)


These are boxed copies of the games, so you can sell them to your friend or a store or just give them away if you already own them. It's also free two-day shipping if you have a ShopRunner account.

Why is it confusing? For one thing, Infinite and the $50 card aren't listed anywhere, and don't show up unless you add the item to your cart. Also, the way it's listed, it looks like you're getting two copies of Need For Speed: Most Wanted. It's already crazy, so maybe you are.


It's a good enough deal to replace an aging PS3 with, buy a second one to have blu-ray in multiple rooms, get your Dad for father's day, etc. If you don't already own a PS3 and/or missed several of these games, the bargain is that much better, especially considering the Playstation 4 won't play PS3 discs, and whatever streaming/emulation they have planned won't be ready at launch.
