This isn't much of an offer from Amazon, unless ALL games will be around $80 even 1st party games? That would make it a saving of $40, taking PS+ into consideration.

Jaqen_Hghar1113d ago

It's the only one with a discount. A man is buying the KZ bundle because he is hyped and is getting Knack, a PS4Eye, and of course an extra DS4.

blitz06231113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Yeah this is only $10 savings. We shouldn't look at it like that though since release SKUs obviously don't get discount bundles like the PS3/360 nowadays.

A good way to look at this price is compare it to the $499 Xbox one bundle which doesn't include a game and Gold

gaffyh1113d ago

I was about to comment saying that this was a great bundle, until I realised it said OR instead of AND with the games.

LonDonE1113d ago

its really starting to tick me off, why the hell has Amazon uk not given us uk residents PS4 bundle offers?? WTF?? its annoying the hell out of me, i have pre ordered BF4 and my PS4 since the day it became available as a pre order, but wanted a bundle to choose,sigh, oh well!

GiggMan1113d ago

I jumped on the KZ bundle a while back from Amazon. It really doesn't matter to me if it's a big discount or not. I was planning on getting another year of PS+ and Killzone anyway. This just guarantees me both at launch. :-)

it's about $10.00 in savings. But compared the Bone where for the same price you only get the console and then need to buy the following

AA Batteries for the controller ( welcome to 1994 )

A Game

a live subscription

a headset

So by time you got the equivalent from MS you have already spent well over $600.00.

Geezus1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

aa batteries are included theyre always included ( and who doesn't have aa batteries lying around?) and kinects doubles as a mic, if you dont want to buy a game you get killer instinct for free ( at least one character), your xbox live account transfer over so if your xbox 360 account hasnt expired you can use it on the one... cmon man! stop trying your hardest to justify this ps4 bundle theres barely any savings there...

Tony-A1113d ago

I don't think the XBO requires batteries for it's controllers, hahahaha!

..... does it?

Seriously, I have no idea. If it does, that would be absolutely ridiculous at this day in age.

mcstorm1113d ago

He Xbox one controller dose not need batteries its built in. Also you get 12 month live free with a day one Xbox one and Microsoft had the specs of what comes with the Xbox one the other day which included a head set to so the only thing you need to buy is a game which in the uk makes the one £479ish in the uk don't know what that comes out as in $s as we get ripped off here in the uk by tax.

Lvl_up_gamer1113d ago

@ Tony-A

having to tether your controller to your console in this day and age is by far more ridiculous.

Battery packs allows for a consistent wireless controller. Having to connect a wire to your console to just charge is so 2 generations ago.

I will take a 7 second batter pack swap over a tethered controller to charge any day.

Tried so many times to explain to people that you will be spending 600+ on xbone thanks for this post.

10 while bucks savings haha

wishingW3L1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

+ no tax

cee7731113d ago

= over $40+ in savings

GribbleGrunger1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

There's a difference between me advising my fellow Sony fans to wait for a better deal, and you taking the opportunity to have a dig. That's a pretty sad motive.

ShwankyShpanky1113d ago

And how much will the shipping cost? (and how much more is it to receive it on launch day?)

And unfortunately, they now collect sales tax for California, so unless they can come up with an actual good "deal," I'll stick with my GameStop launch preorder.

Th4Freak1112d ago

@ShwankyShpanky Amazon doesn't charge shipping or taxes.

ShwankyShpanky1111d ago

I think I've bought enough stuff on Amazon to know that they do charge CA sales tax and shipping (especially release day shipping).

Ace_Pheonix1113d ago

Another way of looking at it is how it's also tax free on Amazon. So that in itself is pretty great savings. Throw in free shipping on launch day delivery and you've just saved like $60. Or in other words, another free game.

George Sears1113d ago

Tax free? Not if you live in New York..

slazer1011113d ago

^ Or Cali.
I got the BF4 bundle on Amazon when it first came out. Ten bucks saving is ten bucks. Beats a sharp stick in the eye. Also free 2 day shipping with Prime trial. Just remember after signing up to Prime to go in and check the box that you don't want the trial to continue after 30 days so you don't get charged.

JunioRS1011113d ago

Someone clear things up for me..... I actually already HAVE this pre ordered, but there was a recent article saying PS4 EA games cost $80 US Dollars...... So does this $499 price still stand as is, or will they bump the price a little higher because they thought wrong by assuming games were gonna be $60 again?

PLEASE CLARIFY! thanks

gobluesamg1113d ago

I think EA games will cost 55 pounds in Britain which roughly equals 80 US dollars. I could have misunderstood though.

slazer1011112d ago

@ Junio

That's a really good question. I have the bundle ordered also. As of right now Amazon still has BF4 PS4 edition going for $59.99. It also says Oct. 29, 2013 as the release date. Which is odd. I hope this is just a rumor. $20 jump in price for a game that is supposed to be easier to make on the PS4 is redonkulous.

_FantasmA_1112d ago

But its nice to get everything together. I mean what are you going to with just a console, no games, and no online access for the games that you don't have??

Muerte24941113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Assuming you have an internet connection (apparent since you're doing an Amazon pre-order)

You get:
Ps4
PS+ 1 year
Battlefiled 4/Killzone Shadowfall
Don't Starve
Secret Poncho
Warframe
Driveclub
Outlast
DC Universe
Planetside 2
Blacklight Retribution thanks jdktech2010
=$499.99

Xbox One = 499.99 (assuming you have an internet connection)*needed initially to set up launch system for Xbox One*
Killer Instinct (Jago and Saberwolf only) thanks Alien626
does not include*
Xbox Live Gold

I wonder which system will give me more bang for my buck?

Enemy1113d ago

$100 extra for vastly weaker specs and nowhere near as many games? Xbox One indeed.

You're supposed to finish your sentences Mr.Ksar. ^_^

If he isn't convinced into buying a ps4 by now, there is nothing we can do but let him spend his money the way he pleases and wish him the best! ;-)

xbox one get killer instinct for free with one or two characters i believe

JackOfAllBlades1113d ago

@Ksar

I think you misspelled PlayStation 4

jdktech20101113d ago

Don't forget Planetside 2 and Blacklight: Retribution as well.

GribbleGrunger1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

It says Battlefield OR KZS, not 'and'. But if people think it's a bargain then fair enough. I'll just be buying the console myself and playing Driveclub for a while.

Muerte24941113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Battlefield 4/ Killzone Shadowfall with the "/" representing "or". You'll notice that I mentioned ever game you do get under one another. You said there wasn't any value. I was just pointing out all the games that come associated with PS+ alone.

GribbleGrunger1113d ago

I hope you realise that I'm a Sony fan and that I think PS+ is fantastic? But that still doesn't change the fact that if you bought the console and then bought one game and PS+, it wouldn't be that much more than this bundle. That's all I'm saying. There will be better deals, so I'd wait.

Muerte24941113d ago

I know you are and I sorry if it seemed like I was attacking you. I'm just saying compared to what you get with Xbox One for $500, that money goes a lot further with this bundle. Sorry for any confusion. I was providing another reason why to go with PS4 over Xbox One.

Cryptcuzz1113d ago

You guys are both right!

Gribble is a Sony fan that is a fact (same as me yay!) so he is not trying to downplay the PS4 in any way. This bundle isn't much of a savings but that is fine though(Please read below)

Muerte is simply stating that for what is included day one at the cost of $499 (this bundle) is much much more then just the base model of the Xbox One, which is also at $499.

You guys are both right, now go shake each others hands, because PS brothers should not be arguing with one another :)

_FantasmA_1112d ago

U no like Watchdogs? I was getting sick of seeing the same footage over and over but then at E3, my jaw dropped and I knew that that was the game for me. However, the best game of E3 was The Order, but its not a launch title so Watchdogs here I come.

KwietStorm1113d ago

Why are you including games that are free regardless? PS4 with PS Plus and a game would come out to about $510. This bundle is 499. I believe that's what gribble is getting at. HUGE discount..

Muerte24941113d ago

Plastation store without having PS+. All these games I've listed out cost money except for Warframe, Blacklight: Retribution, DC Universe, and Planetside 2. The rest can cost you anywhere from $5-$60 dollars.

GribbleGrunger1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Jesus, people. I'm NOT knocking Sony, I'm just pointing out it's not that great a deal. You are only saving about 10 - 15 dollars. There will be better deals than this. Listing games on PS+ is completely irrelevant. You can't add those games in to give value to this bundle and then completely forget those games are still there if you decided to get PS+ separately, if you just bought the console.

LOL. What part are you not understanding? It's a saving of about $10. Wait for a better bundle.

Corpser1113d ago

Wow ps4 gets some free to play pc games for free, what a deal

/s

HammadTheBeast1113d ago

Meanwhile.... What does Xbox get?

Here's one of those PS4 games:

FamilyGuy1113d ago

LOL, nice breakdown

I'm loving the look of PS4s Free launch line up.
The start of this gen is gonna be crazy, I just really hope Sony can keep the console supply restocking at a decent speed this time. Millions want to have it this year.

JunioRS1011113d ago

ps4 is like a series of mortars for a 4th of July finale, whereas xbox one offers a neat sparkler

Th4Freak1112d ago

You forgot that the PS4 includes a headset.

That bundle has been around a month. So much for news lol

MASTER_RAIDEN1113d ago

first off, this bundle has been around for quite some time now. secondly, its not really that much of a deal if you really think it over. only saving about 10 bucks.

Minato-Namikaze1113d ago

10 bucks is better than no bucks? lol. Good deals arent gonna be around until next year. I really hope people arent expecting $50 discounts at launch.

Maddens Raiders1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

It's an old offer but still one hell of a good deal. I've already got two PS4's pre-ordered through Amazon though. I don't think I need three lol.

KwietStorm1113d ago

Is it really a hell of a deal?

jukins1113d ago

it is when you consider atm it may be the only place to reliably preorder atm, and depending on your state no sales tax either. I wouldnt trust walmart.com they've managed to lose 3 of my orders last year, and my local best buys just never seem to be able to get it together with launch items with this much popularity. Amazon has never done me wrong *crosses fingers*

Maddens Raiders1113d ago

In a word, yes. Why don't you think so?

KwietStorm1113d ago

Because you're saving 10 dollars. Yes, it's a discount, but hell of a deal?

_FantasmA_1112d ago

I heard that 4 is the recommend amount by the leading doctors in a new scientific study.

Maddens Raiders1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

kwietstorm, you should know anything involving GG now is a hell of a good deal, plus 10 bucks is 10 double cheeseburgers @ McD's ;)
