Sony was at the recent D23 expo where they revealed a new limited edition PS4 that will carry the likeness of Darth Vader on it. The PS4 itself will be a 500GB system and will also include a wireless PS4 controller with a design inspired by Vader’s chest panel, furthering the ‘Star Wars’ theme. If that’s the sort of thing that will convince you to spend your hard-earned cash on a PS4, then you can snag one of these bad boys later this year by buying one of two Star Wars bundles.
The first bundle will be for ‘Star Wars: Battlefront,’ the upcoming multiplayer game that puts you in the middle of a Rebellion-vs-Empire battle, some of which come right out of the movies. The bundle will come with a Deluxe edition of ‘Battlefront’ and a digital voucher for four older ‘Star Wars’ games (‘Super Star Wars,’ ‘Star Wars: Racer Revenge,’ ‘Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter,’ and ‘Star Wars: Bounty Hunter’) that have been made playable on the PS4. That seems like a pretty good pot sweetener. I remember enjoying playing Super Star Wars on my friend’s SNES back in the day and the PC version of Star Wars: Racer was pretty decent as well. Unfortunately I can’t really comment on the other games.
The second bundle will be for the launch of ‘Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition.’ It will include the same digital code for the older ‘Star Wars’ games as well as a physical copy of ‘Infinity 3.0,’ a play set, and several ‘Star Wars’ figures that will be unique to the Playstation version of ‘Disney Infinity,’ including Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia Organa.
A price hasn’t yet been revealed, but it’s not too hard to make an educated guess. Not that long ago Sony released a similar special edition PS4 for ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ which costs $450 and I would be surprised if these ‘Star Wars’ bundles cost more than that.
These ‘Star Wars’ PS4 bundles will be available this coming November 11, though pre-orders will be available before then if you can’t wait.
