Rumor: Handful of 250GB PS3 bundles heading to Europe

The gaming site Joystiq received two images today, from an alleged Norwegian GameStop employee, in which multiple PlayStation 3 250GB game bundle SKUs are visibly on display. In one image, which is claimed to be an internal email to all Norwegian GameStop employees, instructions on the difference between the rumor 250GB PS3 bundles and the current 120GB PS3 are found. The email  saids that “there is no difference” aside from storage space and posits four possible “PS3 250GB” bundles: One paired with “NFS” (presumably Need for Speed: Shift); another with “FIFA” (presumably FIFA 10); a third with Uncharted 2; and the final one with Assassin’s Creed 2.

Also a second image was later sent to Joystiq by a anonymous tipster who supposedly snapped what looks to be the familiar GameStop clerk inventory screen, albeit with commands in Norwegian. It suggests yet another 250GB PS3 bundle, this time with “Ratchet” (presumably Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time) attached. If these image turn out to be true, the bundles will be priced at 3799 kr ($644.16), a 500 kr ($84.78) increase from the current price of a 120GB PS3 Slim at Norwegian GameStops. No release dates are given.

Sony of America has shot down this rumors, saying that an image of an Uncharted 2 PS3 250GB Bundle was a “complete fabrication.”
