Sony has announced a brand new PlayStation 4 console bundle for the 2014 holiday season. This comes on the heels of the PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas this past weekend.
Gamers can snag a PlayStation 4 for $399.99. Specially marked console bundles will have a “Four Games. One Pick.” label. Inside the box, players will find a voucher code to redeem for their choose of one of the four games selected.
The pile of games to choose from, while small, is actually pretty strong. Here’s the rundown, with special details, from the PlayStation Blog.
- Destiny – The ultimate Destiny experience is on PS4, with exclusive content including an additional multiplayer map, Strike mission, an expanded repository of exotic weapons and gear, and player ships. Don’t forget, the first Destiny expansion, The Dark Below, is coming out on Dec 9, and it includes exclusive content for PlayStation gamers: a new Strike, The Undying Mind, and an exotic shotgun, The 4th Horseman. Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below will be available for $19.99.
- Far Cry 4 – A game many are calling a contender for game of the year, Far Cry 4 will take you on a breathtaking adventure through the perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. PS4’s exclusive “Keys to Kyrat” feature allows you to send up to 10 keys to your PSN friends, so they can join you in Kyrat for a two-hour online co-op session, even if they don’t own a copy of the game.
- NBA 2K15 – Featuring NBA MVP Kevin Durant on the cover, NBA 2K15 hits the court with unprecedented life-like graphics, ultra-realistic NBA gameplay, and more. PS4 owners will get an exclusive 10,000 VC Bonus, and PlayStation Plus members also get a MyTeam Card Pack.
- Little Big Planet 3 – Join Sackboy and his new burlap gang in their newest adventure, and build new levels of your own using more than 70 brand new tools to create more expansive adventures.
If it were me looking to pick up a PS4, I’d go with the Far Cry 4 bundle here. I love that game, and getting it for free with a new console would be fantastic.
