While most video game bundles include video games, Sony's newly announced Harry Potter-themed PS3 set is all about the final Harry Potter movie. Launching later this week for the same price as a standard PS3 ($249.99) is The Harry Potter 3D Experience Movie Pack PS3 bundle. Included in the bundle is a 160GB PS3 Slim, a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 on Blu-ray 3D, and a voucher to download Harry Potter and the Sorcer's Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
That's a lot of Harry Potter.
You'll also get one month of PlayStation Plus access.
While the Harry Potter package offers a value over the standard system, it seems lackluster compared to the deals Sony has in store for Black Friday. Sony will be launching a "Holiday Bundle" for sale that weekend. For $199.99--a $50 savings over the vanilla PS3--you'll be able to get a 160GB system, LittleBigPlanet 2: Special Edition, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, and one month of PlayStation Plus. Given the dangers of American holiday shopping, however, you'll want to get to the stores early if you want to secure this deal.
