Sony Stateside has announced details of some new PS3 and PSP bundles that will be branded with some of their high profile launch titles for 2008.

To coincide with the launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in late-Q2 2008, a PS3 bundle, which will include an 80GB PS3, the game and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller will be sold for $499.

American Sony gaming fans will get a chance to splash the cash before that though, with the June launch of a limited-edition God of War PSP pack for $199.99.

The God of War bundle will include a Deep Red PSP with a charming image of Kratos silk-screened on the back of the unit, a copy of the game God of War: Chains of Olympus, Superbad, on UMD and a voucher to download Syphon Filter: Combat Ops.

In addition, the American launch of DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller has been confirmed for April at $54.95. No European info provided at this time.

UPDATE: There are "no plans" to launch either bundle in Europe.
