Now this is a real treasure for Uncharted fans.
Sony announced today a special PlayStation 4 bundle for the upcoming third-person shooter Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. It includes a disc along with an engraved, gray-blue version of the console (as seen above). It also comes with a gray-blue controller and a 500 GB hard drive. The bundle comes out on April 26, the same day as the game’s release, and will cost $400.
Uncharted 4 is an important game for Sony. The series has become one of the PlayStation’s most popular exclusives. Even without it appearing on the PlayStation 4 yet (outside of an enhanced collection of older games), Sony’s system has managed to outsell its competitor, the Xbox One. A big exclusive like this can help widen the gap, and bundles like these can attract new customers (especially if they’re big Uncharted fans who have been waiting specifically for this game). Sony previously released a bundle for Star Wars: Battlefront during the holiday season that reached sales of 1 million, and that game wasn’t even an exclusive.
Sony said that preorders for the bundle will start today. The gray-blue controller included in the package will become available for purchase separately before April 26.
