You may remember when
Sony unveiled its new PlayStation 3D Display at E3 2011, which lets two players
play on the same monitor with no split screen. Since then, the PS3-friendly set
has received a variety of bundle deals, but Sony’s latest special offer for the
24” 3D monitor will include a copy of MotorStorm: Apocalypse – and a copy of
Resistance 3 for those who pre-order.
In addition to
MotorStorm: Apocalypse, the $499 bundle includes the display, an HDMI cable, and
a pair of PlayStation 3D glasses. Place a pre-order with your favorite
participating retailer before Sept 30 and you'll also get Resistance 3. If you
were already planning on buying the FPS, that's a saving of $59, making the set
a mite more reasonable.
Of course, if you were
planning on buying Resistance 3 anyway, you might prefer to have the game on
its Sept 6 launch, rather than in November when the display ships. Online
buyers will have to wait for the display itself before receiving Resistance 3
to play on it, whereas retailers such as GameStop are offering the bonus in-store
as soon as the game becomes available.
