When the PlayStation 4 releases on November 15, you’ll be able to get the system by itself for $399.99. However, Sony states that this won’t be the only way to buy the hardware, as it’s planning console bundles similar to how it put together its PlayStation 3 ones. Amazon had several different bundles of the PS4 and various game titles, but all are sold out now. New bundles that will be available to all retailers are being planned, according to rumors.
A bundle packed in with Killzone: Shadow Fall, a second Dual Shock 4 controller and a PlayStation Camera have been spotted, with the bundle going for 499 in Europe. There’s no word on a U.S. release yet, but it looks very likely.
“We’re tremendously happy with our overall value proposition, whether that be the entry price point of the machine [or] the detailed bundles and combinations that we will put on shelf at retail which we haven’t fleshed out in detail as yet,” Sony Computer Entertainment UK chief Fergal Gara told VideoGamer.com during Gamescom.
A PlayStation 4/PS Vita bundle for $500 is also being considered, though nothing is official just yet. Sony may decide to leverage the tremendous early demand for the PS4 into some higher-priced bundles.
