SCEE has "no plans" to release a Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle or God of War PSP bundle in Europe.

It was responding to queries after the American arm of the company unveiled some fancy offers.

The Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle will go on sale in the US in late Q2. It will contain the game, an 80GB PlayStation 3 and DualShock 3 controller. The bundle will cost USD 499.

The DualShock 3 controller will cost USD 54.95 on its own and will be available in April.

The God of War: Chains of Olympus bundle will arrive in June and set Americans back USD 199.99. Inside will be the game, a Deep Red PSP with a picture of Kratos on, the film Superbad and a PC Store voucher to download Syphon Filter: Combat Ops. Gosh.

God of War: Chains of Olympus is due out in the US on 4th March. European retailers suggest it will be here on 28th March, but this is currently unconfirmed.

"In response to incredible demand, we will be manufacturing more 80GB PS3s for North America and the Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots 80GB PS3 bundle is an ideal way to offer that continued value to our consumers," said Sony US boss Jack Tretton.

"With Blu-ray having won the format war, our stellar software line-up and a broad product portfolio, we will continue to drive the incredible momentum we've been generating since last fall."

Sony America also revealed a pre-order promotion for MGS4, which will guarantee you access to a multiplayer beta test for MGS Online in late April.

Boo, sniff.
