PS4 To Receive Darth Vader Star Wars Bundles This Year


When Sony executives stated that they weren’t worried about their Holiday 2015 lineup of exclusives, instead relying on their third-party partnerships going into the marketingpalooza, we’re starting to see a clearer idea why. During the Disney Interactive panel at the D23 Expo today, PlayStation’s Adam Boyes took the stage to announce three new PS4 bundles relating to Star Wars content; two regarding Star Wars: Battlefront, the other with Disney Infinity 3.0. The PlayStation Blog has more of the details, including what games are being offered with each bundle.

Limited Edition in nature, each PS4 Star Wars bundle comes with a Darth Vader-inspired faceplate, with the Star Wars logo imprinted as a background design. The PS4 itself is the CUH-1200 500GB model, and comes with a specially-designed DualShock 4 controller. The D-Pad, Circle button and L1 button are colored red, the analog sticks and the other front-facing action buttons are greyish white and the R1 button is painted blue.

Both bundles will also come with a digital download voucher for SNES classic Super Star Wars, as well as PS2-era titles Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars Bounty Hunter. Alongside updated visuals when coming to the PS4 for the first time, each title also comes with trophy support.

The only differences between the three PS4 bundles is the main game being offered alongside it. There are two Star Wars: Battlefront bundles; one offers the Deluxe Edition of the game, while the other offers the Standard version. The other bundle belongs to Disney Infinity 3.0 Limited Edition, which provides a physical copy of Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, the Disney Infinity Base, the Rise Against the Empire Play Set Pack and the holiday-PS4-exclusive Boba Fett figure. All of them will be available for sale on November 17, when EA released Star Wars: Battlefront on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Regardless of which bundle you get, it’s interesting to see how Sony is looking to bring back even PS2 games onto the PS4 with these offerings. Also of note is Super Star Wars, a Nintendo game, makes its way to the PS4 before the Nintendo Wii U’s virtual console. It was added on the Nintendo Wii’s VC in 2009, but with even Xbox getting more classic Rare games on the Xbox One than on the Wii U, it’s still weird to see the competition embrace games of old, even if they weren’t the prior proprietors of the properties.
