Japan Getting Metal Gear Rising Super Slim Bundle

Japanese PlayStation 3 owners will be treated to a sumptuous ‘Zan Datsu’ edition of Sony’s flagship console to coincide with the launch of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

The bundle includes a custom-designed 250GB PS3 Super Slim, a DualShock pad, a copy of Metal Gear Rising and download codes for a PS3 theme and the Cyborg Ninja costume. Gematsu reports that it’ll cost 31,960 yen.

Elsewhere, Siliconera has caught wind of a Metal Gear Rising demo that will land on PSN in Japan on December 13. Apparently it’s the same one packaged with the Zone of the Enders HD Collection that the gaming press has been lapping up. No word on a western release but we’ll keep you posted.

Metal Gear Rising will be unleashed in stores for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in February 2013. In Japan the game is a PS3-exclusive and won’t be released there for Microsoft’s console.

PlayStation Vita price cut coming in 2013

Sony’s UK managing director, Fergal Gara, confirmed a cut in the PlayStation Vita price in 2013. Gara said, “We always aim to establish price cuts. So the question is not so much if, but when.”

So yes, when is that when? Well, they don’t know yet. Gara said that the timing for the price cut is in discussion. Sony already confirmed there would NOT be a price cut in 2012. They plan to try to boost sales with software/system bundles – look for a Vita bundled with the PlayStation 3 this holiday season.
