PS4 Bundles Coming But "Haven't Been Fleshed Out Yet"

We haven't heard about any official PlayStation 4 bundles just yet, although retailers are always welcome to offers such packages. Amazon has plenty of options, for instance.

However, we may start hearing about some official PS4 bundles very soon. Amazon France has this great console package that includes Killzone: Shadow Fall, a second Dual Shock 4 controller, and the PlayStation Camera. It retails for 499,99 Euro, which is about £430.

This could be the first of several bundles coming our way, as Sony told VideoGamer. It's just a matter of time:

"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."

It seems to me that most avid gaming fans would appreciate a bundle. Nobody just buys the system on day one and goes home, right? We all want a game or two (or three) and it's likely that most of us want an extra controller, too. And as this is an expensive proposition, it'd be nice to have a set package that saves us a bit of cash. Let's hope we hear about some official bundles at the Tokyo Game Show.

Well regardless I got my bundle coming from Amazon with Killzone, and 1 year PSplus for $10 off. Set to be recieved on November 15!

I dont really care for colors. I honestly, even given the choice, would probably still purchase black. But a white one, amd only white, could change that potentially.

It took Sony 2 years to release a new PS3 color and that was the grey MGS4 limited edition. I don't see Sony placing more color for the PS4's until 2015; and it would still be a limited set of colors if not just one new color.

Note: I really hope they prove me wrong! I have always love different colors and would definitely pay (up to $50 more) for a white, silver, or even something wild like Red or Blue.

Japan and Europe both enjoyed more color choice than North America for the PS3 for years.

We only just in the last couple years started getting some of the choices that they have been getting for years, but we still don't get everything, which is kind of stupid, considering capitalism in general and all.

Dude at gamestop told me yesterday they will be coming out with a PS4/Vita bundle for $499. Dont know the validity of it, but that sounds like a deal worth buying eventually.

Hopefully Sony will do a PS4/PSVita bundle with worthwhile saving, maybe throw Plus in there too.

I think Sony should do official bundles that are the same price or less than an AntiConsumerBox One, even with FIFA included.

PS4 + Killzone/Any game + Camera + Another controller for $500

VS

SpyBox One + FIFA + Kinect for $500

or SpyBox One + Kinect for $500 since FIFA is only in Europe and limited supply.

If Sony does more like throw in Plus, it would be even better.

I think for the States a COD or Battlefield bundle would be best.

Sony could really do a lot. We know $60 is overpriced for games so bundling a game or two is not something serious. We know the Camera can be sold for less than $60 too. We also know $60 for a controller is overpriced as well. And we know PSVita costs a lot less to make than $200. So, Sony has a lot of things that they could do. They could release an ultimate bundle for $500 or barely more than $500 and guarantee that Xbox dies.

Probably wouldn't see a COD bundle, as they are clearly in bed with Microsoft.

But Battlefield could be good.

Akuma your logic is flawed, as there have been two CoD PS3 bundles.

That would look killer if they had some grey or silver accent on the PS4.

Why not chrome bits out here and there like the original 60GB PS3s?

Hopefully it's true so I can preorder one. I haven't been able to preorder a PS4 yet.

Well, if you preordered already... who do the bundles cater to then? A new supply for Xmas post pre-order?

Can't say the game lineup is inviting enough until maybe Second Son comes out. Not saying that Killzone would not be on my games to have list, but there has to be more coming right? For launch or Xmas! Right?

Still.... its gonna be exciting to watch towards launch and Xmas! Gamers.... READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!!!

Anyway... keep playing!

gotta love $ony.
one day there swinging punches at the competition calling offering a game with their system is a bit odd, and the next day there talking about doing the exact same thing themselves!
only $ony is so good at contradicting themselves!

There's a clear difference between an attempt at a bribe by Microsoft to include Fifa in every day one Xbox pre-order in Europe just to get an uptick in very sluggish pre-order figures, and a bundle being released by Sony to give people the CHOICE to get everything that they may want in one box, or to not get the bundle and just buy what bits they want separately.

Maybe one day when you finally grow up, you'll understand that difference better.

I hope they have a inFamous: Second Son bundle coming! They probably do but by the time it's out, I'll already have a PS4 (have both pre-ordered right now).

So why would Sony do pre-orders 6 months ahead that run out, only to make better bundles to be released around the same time?
