Although Play have the release date for thi particular bundle as April 1st, we're pretty sure it's not an April Fool. With God of War III currently retailing for around £35-40 at the moment and considering that most merchants are stocking this version of the PS3 Slim alone for this price you can look at it either as you're getting God of War III for free, or a 250 GB PS3 Slim for around £230. Pretty good eh?
As with their previous two consoles, it didn't take long for Sony to put the PS3 on a diet and help it shed a few pounds. The Slim model is 33% smaller, 36% lighter, and consumes 34% less power than its larger brother, with a redesigned cooling system that means not only is it quieter, but it won't set fire to your house either. Additionally, as we've seen, Slims are pretty well defended against things like hacking and the Millennium Bug.
We've had a little look at God of War III and found it to be pretty darn special, in fact you can check out Brendan's review here. No, it hasn't changed much - lopping off heads in beautifully rendered surroundings and felling gigantic mythical beasts in amongst the occasional puzzle is, as ever, the order of the day - but that's no bad thing at all.
If you've been waiting for the return of the angry, bald Greek before taking the PS3 plunge, then this is most definitely for you.
