AFAIK there isn't a PS3 Black Ops 2 bundle. If it is like last time, there won't be one until sometime in 2013, if at all...

The only 500Gb PS3 is the AC3 bundle at the moment. 

 

The other bundles are the Uncharted and Infamous bundles with a 250Gb PS3.

 

 

I hope you know you can upgrade the hdd in your PS3.

 

 

 

BTW, I do suggest if you have money left over, look into buying an extended warranty.

How?

 

Did you even bother reading the terms of the extended warranty? You will get up to 4 years total of free repair service for only $44 if you're a Plus member if purchased from the Store. and you'll get one brand new console replacement FREE. Meaning, you will get a BNIB PS3 should you or Sony deem that its better to replace for a new console than a repair or a refubished console.

And, you don't have to buy the warranty immediately. You can buy it up to 6months after you buy your PS3, IIRC.

 

Thats more than $300 total value potentiality. Its a lot better than risk paying $100+ for each and every subsequent repair regardless if you want Sony to fix it or a 3rd party. Or even buy another PS3, new or used.

Regardless if the SuperSlim is more reliable or not. Its cheap insurance.


Its better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

And you won't lose your data if you actually perform a backup..... Having a Plus subcription is also the benefit as some game saves will not be backed up to an external USB device, but ALL game saves can be backed up to the Cloud. 
You can redownload your games and DLC as you need it, so you dont need to waste hdd space or use an external.
If you have movies purchased from the store, you can easily call up Sony to reset your Video license to redownload them.


Just giving you something to think about.

While I respect Grey's opinion, in most cases I don't agree that buying one is worthwhile.

Extended warranties are their for companies to make an easy profit from, more likely that not you will not need to use them at all. If too many people did use these warranties they would probably start selling them.

Case in point, when the X360 used to have its RROD problems, GameStop stopped selling its extended warranties on that product, because they were losing too much money.

Also if you pay for something with many credit cards these days, they often have a built-in feature where it doubles the warranty in any product you buy. So in effect you could be paying for a service you could get for free...
