Sony is offering a n attractive PS4 bundle based off the game Killzone: Shadow Fall for gamers in the U.K.
Last month the bundle appeared on the French Amazon website but then disappeared. Now it has turned up again, but this time on Amazon U.K. According to Geek.com, Sony has confirmed its existence.
The bundle retails for $499, which is an extra $100 added to the console, or the price of a regular Xbox One.
This bundle includes the console, Killzone game, PlayStation Camera, and two Dualshock 4 controllers-- a "mega bundle," as Sony calls it.
Sony is working with retailers to create an option for people who already pre-ordered to upgrade, according to Geek.
Previously, Sony felt they did not need to offer bundles to outdo the Xbox One. So this bundled package is either them taking back what they said, or just a way to gather more interest in the long run.
"Platform holders and publishers run pre-order campaigns, and if you need to increase momentum then they dial it up a little bit with some promotional stuff, it's a rational thing to do. But do we need to do that? No," SCEE President Jim Ryan said to MCV concerning Microsoft's European FIFA 2014 Xbox One bundle a few weeks ago.
PlayStation 4 already has over a million pre-orders sold, and only has a GTAV/PS3 bundle going on.
"We have learnt a lot of lessons from last time around. There were a number of things we did on PS3 that we would not knowingly repeat. We sat and reflected and soul searched a lot. And we decided early on that we wanted to be single-minded in our pursuit of the gamer with PS4," said Ryan. "From the start, people have had a clear idea of what PS4 stands for and they can either take it or leave it, and it seems like lots of people want to take it. There's no ambiguity. There's no confusion. And it has helped us gain momentum ahead of launch."
The PlayStation 4 launches Nov. 15.
