Would it be a smart move for Sony to re-release the 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 DualShock 4 as a standalone product?
This is exactly what they should do. I think 90% of people simply wanted the controller and by making it available by itself, it would appease people who missed out on a console.
I would buy it without a second thought. XD
Exactly this. I totally want that controller if they sell it separate.
I think it's ugly as sin but I agree. Why shouldn't gamers be able to purchase it alone? Give the gamers what they want.
It looks amazing and would sell like hotcakes. Yes they should.
I'd buy one, just sayin'...
Wonder if they sell them in the UK they'll make you jump through every hood in existence to get one like they've done with the console it's self ¬¬ US - Click, Buy, DONE UK - Follow Twitter Account, Wait for Clue, Go to Picture Website, Be one of the first 100 people, select right answer, press special link, go to secret GAME site, fill out a form, Register and hope for the best. I wouldn't mind as much if they were much cheaper or they were going for £19.94 but they are still full price. You are basically going through a shitty game just to pay to get one. Don't see why they can't put them up on the Sony store.
Maybe to avoid what happened in the US where the site crashed prohibiting real fans from getting it. Seems like they're making it a drag so people who just want to Sale it on eBay wouldn't bother getting it. I don't see why they just don't sell it as a bundle worldwide. Heck I can careless for the number labeled on the bottom right of the console.
Problem is the past few days now the site where you pick the answer usually crashes (yeah they *apparently* didn't expect this much traffic...funny right) and you have to be extremely lucky. So at the end of the day this plan is flawed aswell They should of just added so many a day on the Sony UK store over the course of the week. Would be much easier.
If it's just the Dualshock then sure.
I know I would purchase at least 2...so yup I guess ;)
I'm not going to say they should, but I wish they would.
I would definitely buy one.
I think they should just let us duke it out in gladitorial style combat, for the system itself. I dont want the controller. It would only serve as a reminder that I dont own the sexiest limited edition playstation ever made.
im all in for the gladiator tournament.
I really wish they would. I just bought the blue one a few days ago, but this pushes all my nostalgia buttons. Gotta get this if it hits store shelves. Haha.
Yes-I would def buy one!
I really want the special box the system comes in. (yes I'm serious and yes I have a thing about collecting boxes) :p
I would buy one.
I'd buy two, one to collect in mint condition, the other to use.
This is what i thought they were going to do until i found out the system was only on there online store. I really hope the 20th anniversary becomes standard stock at stores, that classic ps logo though! seriously this is a classic we allll deserve and it shouldn't be limited :)
The market is there for it I would pick it up I can always use a new controller. I think they should secretly sneak out a new batch of 20th anniversary consoles into the general batch of PS3s that hit store shelves.
I think they should imaging all those people who got the 20th anniversary console would want a matching 2nd dual shock.
No because then it decreases the value of the 20th anniversary edition
It might to some "collectors" but how about the die hard playstation fans who wouldn't even think twice about scalping their systems online? Think about it.
The people who are buying those "scalped" consoles are fans too . if they released it then it wouldn't be Limited anymore it would just be a regular console
I'd buy one in an instant. It looks nice.
Yes it would be a nice gesture for all the fans who didn't score a limited 20th anniversary PS4 to have at least this controller as a memento of the Playstations Brand 20 great years.
They should do that AND make more consoles that aren't numbered. That was the others are truly limited edition and numbered and then they can turn around and sell a boatload more that are just standard. The super inflated secondary market goes down and who cares? What does Sony owe the rats selling them on eBay? Nothing. I'll settle for the controller though.
Yes, but if they did it would piss off people with those "collectors" editions.
I know I would buy it even if I missed out on the sweet 20th anniversary console. But yeah I think people who bought the anniversary edition would be pretty pissed if they released it separately unless there was a limited supply of the controller as well.
Do it Sony!!! Me wants at least 2 of those preciouses!!!!
I would by one immediately.
Yes they should. There might be people that simply want the controller.
Yes the console is exclusive enough IMO let the people that couldn't find one/afford/already have a ps4 celebrate 20 years of playstation maybe even include a code for a ps1 styles theme/whatever they are called on ps4
nope, the point of limited supply is just that
Yes. Especially as the "competition" to get the console in the UK is a complete farce.
What a brilliant suggestion. Totally behind this. Anyone saying "no, they shouldn't" is just being salty. The consoles should be limited, yes, but the controllers could be enjoyed by everyone, and Sony would profit massively from it.
