Sony’s Monkeying Around With Ape Escape PlayStation 3 Hardware Bundle

imageIn addition to the Sports Champions hardware bundled Sony released around the world, there is a second PlayStation Move and PlayStation 3 package for Japan.


On December 9, the day Furi! Furi! Ape Escape comes out, Sony will also release a hardware bundle. This package includes a 160GB PS3, PlayStation Move, Furi! Furi! Ape Escape and a Piposaru memo key holder for 36,980 yen ($445).


Furi! Furi! Ape Escape is a bit different from other games in the Ape Escape series. It uses a first person perspective and turns the Move controller into a net, slingshot or fan. Players use these tools to catch monkeys. So, it’s like a light gun game… with a net… and monkeys.

    Is this suppose to be Ape Escape 4? It’s being worked on by Japan Studio right…? Or is there still something else in the works? Is there another studio working on Ape Escape?

    • MrRobbyM

      Ape Escape 4 is on it’s way and it’s not this.

      • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

        I hope so. But wasn’t Japan Studio the one working on Ape Escape 4? Since this is Studio Japan, did they put that one on the back burner?

        • MrRobbyM

          Don’t worry. It’s still coming. This is a lilttle something to drive up Move sales. AE4 is still coming.

            Thanks for alleviating my fears. I also went back and read through some of the old Siliconera articles. I feel better now. Not that I was bawling my eyes out before, of course. XP
