I’m pretty sure everyone loves bundles, and European PS4 owners have already been getting their hopes up for the previously revealed but not specifically detailed PS4 value-packs that will launch alongside the system come holiday. IGN has confirmed this morning that there will be a number of options regarding which games can be bundled with a PS4, and both Watch Dogs and Killzone: Shadow Fall are on the list.
The way it works is pretty simple, and similar to how current Wii U bundles essentially work. The base PS4 can be had for a cool £349 – no big deal, right? From there, there are a few different paths you can take. For £399, you can add on Watch Dogs or the Special Edition of Killzone: Shadow Fall. Not a fan of hacking? Still mad that Ubisoft won’t give you a real life hacking suit as a bonus? Watch Dogs won’t be forced on you – there’s another bundle that will net you both Killzone Spec-Ed and Evolution Studios’ Drive Club for £439. Lastly, there’s the mega Killzone bundle that was leaked previously, which includes Killzone SE once again, an extra DualShock 4, and the PS4 Camera for £449. Woah man. Woah.
As IGN also points out, the fact that one-game bundles cost an extra £50 likely insinuates that PS4 games will cost a good £55-£60 or so. We already knew they’d stick at $59.99 in the U.S., but UK gamers hoping prices would stay a bit more in line with the planned U.S. cost may end up disappointed.
