Pack-In Games

Most home video game consoles have a game included in the packaging, called a pack-in game. While some of them are better than others, it gives you a game to play as soon as you hook up your new console. Many of us bought consoles for a specific title they wanted to play. Here is an example of the game we were dying to play when we bought this console...

Sony PS3

When I bought a new Sony PS3 console, it came with Uncharted 3, but I really wanted Ratchet & Clank!

Here's another console I initially ignored. After my interest in the first PlayStation, I simply didn't find much on the subsequent consoles that motivated me to add another one to the mix. At one point I found a sale that gave a decent break in the unwavering price and I picked one up with an Uncharted bundle.

Along with the PlayStation 3 my son was interested in Ratchet & Clank, so we picked up A Crack In Time. When he was older, he was all over The Uncharted series!
