$499 PS4 bundle with 1 year PS+ and Battlefield 4 or Killzone at Amazon

Amazon is selling a special PS4 bundle that includes one year of Playstation Plus with either Killzone: Shadow Fall or Battlefield 4. (Amazon.com, Battlefield 4, Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4)

GribbleGrunger  +   386d ago
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_Hghar  +   386d 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.
blitz0623  +   386d 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

I was about to comment saying that this was a great bundle, until I realised it said OR instead of AND with the games.
LonDonE  +   386d 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!
GiggMan  +   386d 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. :-)
Roper316  +   386d ago
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.
Geezus  +   386d 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...

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.
mcstorm  +   386d 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_gamer  +   385d 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.

GribbleGrunger  +   386d 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.

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.
Th4Freak  +   385d ago
@ShwankyShpanky Amazon doesn't charge shipping or taxes.
ShwankyShpanky  +   384d 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_Pheonix  +   386d 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 Sears  +   386d ago
Tax free? Not if you live in New York..
slazer101  +   385d 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.
JunioRS101  +   386d 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
gobluesamg  +   385d ago
I think EA games will cost 55 pounds in Britain which roughly equals 80 US dollars. I could have misunderstood though.
slazer101  +   385d 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_  +   385d 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??
Muerte2494  +   386d ago
sigh* @ GribbleGrunger
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?

I think you misspelled PlayStation 4

Don't forget Planetside 2 and Blacklight: Retribution as well.
GribbleGrunger  +   386d 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.

it says....
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.

GribbleGrunger  +   386d 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.
Muerte2494  +   386d ago
@ GribbleGrunger,
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.
Cryptcuzz  +   385d 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_  +   385d 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.
KwietStorm  +   386d 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..
Muerte2494  +   386d ago
You can access the...
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.
GribbleGrunger  +   386d 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.

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.

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.

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.

jukins  +   386d 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 Raiders  +   386d ago
In a word, yes. Why don't you think so?
KwietStorm  +   385d ago
Because you're saving 10 dollars. Yes, it's a discount, but hell of a deal?

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

It's not so much meant to be a bargain deal as a "look what you get here vs the xbox one". Simple as that and if people are sitting on $500 they can make their choice.
arkard  +   386d ago
Not to mention I would think have to pay tax on this, which is huge compared to buying at games top or best buy!

PS4-$400

Any PS4 Game- I can get for $45

PSN PLus- Sure I can find a deal for $40.

Total-$485
KwietStorm  +   385d ago
$45 where or how?
Cryptcuzz  +   385d ago
I'd like to know this as well. That is one heck of a deal right there.

Maybe he owns a mom and pop shop that gets the game for cheaper? No clue, but consider me intrigued.
badboy776  +   385d ago
I'm just assuming a deal/Sale will pop up some where. I never pay full retail for a game. For example last year newegg.com had a preorder deal where you could preorder any game for $45.00 with free shipping. I preordered blackops 2 and a few other games.

Anyone else think its interesting that within the 4 bundles, 2 are PS exclusive and 2 are multiplat. Also 2 are Franchises and 2 are not. It's a nice spread tbh. Of course the franchises are strapped to the heftier price tag.
