No DualShock for Europe: Metal Gear Solid console bundle shafts Europeans

The so-called "ultimate gaming combo" that is Sony's Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle just got a little less ultimate for those of us stuck in the redheaded stepchild of the gaming market. For some retarded reason, only the US and Japan will be getting the DualShock 3 controller in their bundles, while Europe will be stuck with the SixAxis controller.

Sony revealed this after yesterday's "gamers day" where it confirmed Europe would be getting the bundle, but without the full contents. I bet we're expected to pay more though. ”Available from June 12 and priced at 439.99 Euros this offer is one of the most exciting bundles to date," says Sony. Exciting, but still rather lame.

I can't wait to get out of Europe.
