Sony's way of saying we'll chuck in an extra controller and game (not just for launch pre-orders) for the same price as an X1

MasterCornholio1032d ago

Don't forget about the camera.

Motorola RAZR i

Yeah what a great bundle. The beauty of competition eh?

abc12331032d ago

Well the X1 includes the kinect so didn't think it would be fair

NateCole1032d ago

Would have prefer another game though.

RyuCloudStrife1032d ago

Sony is BEAST can't wait for the bundle in the states!!

skept3k1032d ago

@ NateCole, you do get extra games, it's on PSN Plus!

Narutone661031d ago

I hope Sony would do a bundle which will include the PS Vita.

darthv721031d ago

This is a really nice bundle. Having it come with the camera is especially nice and the 2nd controller is a welcome addition but the odd part is they give you a game that doesnt support split screen.

go figure...still a nice bundle though and it is the first of several to come.

zeee1031d ago (Edited 1031d ago )

This bundle looks good but I am still hoping for a $499 PS4 and Vita bundle. Very unlikely but who knows!? I mean, it COULD happen, right?

They show the case on the box so I hope it's a physical copy of Shadow fall. I like physical copies of AAA games but I definitely (and unfortunately) see digital versions of games being bundled as a possible trend. Though I'm okay buying those digital indie titles cuz they don't take up much HDD space.

Part of what didn't impress me about MS giving out Fifa was that it was digital. What if you don't want Fifa, how can you sell or trade in a digital copy?

The extra controller is nice, knowing which launch games will have local co-op would be nice too though. Some people might prefer just to have 2 games and one controller or three games and no 2nd controller or camera.

sentury1111032d ago

you can sell the redemption code.

SnotyTheRocket1032d ago

Well, it's usually a physical copy, isn't it? I got Uncharted and ModNation Racers in a bundle, when my phat PS3 finally died.

FamilyGuy1032d ago (Edited 1032d ago )

@ Death below me

You have a huge assumption that Sony would get rid of their $399 SKU for this one but they constantly and consistently promote "choice". This bundle has a camera, that "choice" alone means it could never faze out the $399 SKU. Their camera is OPTIONAL so there will ALWAYS be a SKU that doesn't include the camera.

On top of that you think MS is being generous for giving out a limited offer of Fifa when really they only did it because they were scared of Sonys console completely dominating them.
What's generous about charging $20-$25 for a play & charge kit?
What's generous about having free internet apps behind the XBLG pay wall?
What's generous about having free-2-play game behind the XBLG pay wall?
What's generous about charging $499 for a lower tech, less costly hardware than the $399 PS4?
What's generous about charging $60 for XBLG and still having ads on it?
What's generous about them taking away the 10 family member share plan for digital titles?

I can't believe there's someone complaining about an OPTIONAL SKU that saves you money. Even if the second controller wasn't thrown in you'd still be saving $20 on this $499 bundle yet Sony went above and Beyond an we still have blind fanboys complaining.

5eriously1031d ago (Edited 1031d ago )

@ Death. Thank gawd you bubbles are all wasted. No more trolling possible in this article. But all I wanted to ask but you cannot respond is WHY was it Ok for M$ to sell an eXBox360 minimal SKU with no hard drive thus practically cheap and worthless until you buy more "accessories" and purchase Live? Huh, M$ did it to gain market share knowing they fooled everyone that will be forced to upgrade anyway if they want to use the console for anything worthwhile but, a big but, you set your mouth off about the standard PS4 SKU that is fully functional for most games and media features? There are going to be M$ bundles too more expensive than the current already over inflated eXBone launch price.

Is it not so strange that someone can make such a fool out of himself and do not even realise it?

Finally, Death ran out of bubbles.

Hope they do this for the US and soon. I preordered the killzone bundle with a year of plus for the same price. I rather have the KZSF bundled with extra controller and camera.

Transporter471032d ago

I know wish I could pre order this instead

Shane Kim1032d ago

Same here, I don't want any damn cameras on my console. If I wanted it, I would buy it. Give us another game insted!

Pliskin-ecu1032d ago

Sell the camera and buy another game, simple. Or sell the camera and extra controller and buy two games ! Be creative !

zeee1031d ago

I think there will be a supply shortage of extra controllers if not PS Eye so I say that's a good option. If you can get your hands on an extra controller from a bundle and if you don't really need it, I am sure you'll find a number of buyers waiting in line 'round launch window.

H0TSHELLZ1032d ago

I wonder if this is a "Black Friday" Bundle or Launch Day. If not can you imagine the random in store bundles that will be @ bestbuy, target, or walmart

Lboogieskells1032d ago

I bought all this stuff seperate, I'm a lil mad the bundle were not nannounced earlier.

Spitfire_Riggz1032d ago

I hope the rumors are true about the vita ps4 bundle for 500 bucks. I would be all over that

ion6661031d ago

this is exactly what i've been waiting for,Killzone will be the game to get. Has anyone seen the multiplayer....sexy as hell.lol

BoriboyShoGUN1031d ago

Dam i want that Bundle!!!!
As of right now I have all those items preordered seperately!

Fergusonxplainsall1031d ago

What a awesome bundle. In all this will save people money. This makes Killzone SF $49.99, DS4 controller $49.99 and the camera for free.:Plus tax.

Total savings $80. Whoa very sweet deal.

Regular price would be $579.99 for everything in this bundle. WOW! All for $499.99..Drools:}

come_bom1031d ago

I wouldn't mind a PS4/Vita bundle for 500€.

trancefreak1031d ago

Nice By this time I will be ready to have my second PS4. I will take my remote play to the little boys room to keep my game on. Non Stop Action anywhere in my house Yeah.

Khajiit861031d ago

@narutone66

That would be the best deal in gaming because of remote play. Still getting a vita

Playstaion 1031d ago

This has definitely made my day .

clearelite1031d ago (Edited 1031d ago )

Haha, I think I used to use that doofy blue bird as my PSN avatar.

younglj011032d ago

wow 2 controllers,KZ:SF,PS camera for only $499.99 that would be an nail in Xbox One coffin in the UK....

fooltheman1032d ago

Now I now, why Microsoft wanted to add Fifa 13 to bundles....

If you saw two bundles priced the same, but one with a game and one without... You would choose the one with a game...

SuperLupe1032d ago

We're talking about EU overhere ... Killzone VS Fifa is like and ant (Killzone) going up against an elephant (FIFA) KZ bundeled with the machine wont be a threat whatsover.

The interesting part of the bundle is that it comes with an extra controller for the same price as The Xbox + Fifa + Kinect. Thats where Sony may have an advantage.

plmkoh1032d ago

You act as if you can't just march into the store next door and trade in Killzone if you don't fancy it.

HammadTheBeast1032d ago

Limited EU pre.orders get Fifa free. 90% of the casuals who play Fifa only in EU will not pre order.

LATA

Nicaragua1032d ago

If playing fifa is the deal breaker you think it is then people will just buy the cheaper ps4 and a copy of fifa.

trancefreak1031d ago

Oh Please; what kind of analogy is that. Killzone Rocks no matter what continent or planet you live on.
