Destiny: The Taken King PS4 Bundle Has A Mirror Controller


If a recent post on the PlayStation Blog is to be believed, those who do not currently own a PS4 can get a Destiny: The Taken King bundle for purchase once the game comes out this September. That part isn’t the most peculiar fact; it’s been well known that Sony and Activision have a pact together, both for exclusive content as well as for console bundles. The reason I say “is to be believed” is because the official photography, posted on the PlayStation Blog Flickr account, shows a reversed DualShock 4 controller.

Take a closer look at this bigger picture of the Destiny: The Taken King PS4 bundle: (click the image to embiggen the picture)

As you can see, the buttons are placed on the left, while the D-Pad is on the right! What’s even more strange is that this is the only picture where the DS4’s picture is reversed. All other pictures posted in their gallery are featured in its normal profile, with a slick white design and all buttons in their normal position.

Either way, back to the story. This Destiny: The Taken King bundle comes with a white 500GB PS4 with a custom faceplate, a regular, non-distorted white DS4 controller and a physical copy of Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition. This special edition comes with the base Destiny game as well as all of the game’s current DLC and 3 “classic-specific emotes” (I’m sure it’s supposed to be “class-specific”), 3 armor shaders and an early access weapons pack. You know, the latter stuff being sold for $20 to those who already own most Destiny content already.

Spelling mistakes and photoshop errors aside, this announcement is missing the most important information necessary to making purchases; how much this bundle costs. The bundle looks amazing just by its design, and would seemingly appeal to the hardcore fans looking to trade in their current PS4 digs just for that extra customization. Hopefully, we get more information about prices closer to the September 15 launch for both this PS4 bundle and Destiny: The Taken King on PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.
