Killzone: Shadow Fall bundle confirmed by Sony

Killzone: Shadow Fall bundle confirmed by Sony

Includes two controllers, copy of the game, and PlayStation Camera.

Remember that Amazon leak that showed a Killzone: Shadow Fall bundle? Through Eurogamer’s exclusive reveal, we find out it’s true. It will cost €499/£427, equal to Xbox One’s price (€499/£429).

In this bundle, though, you may find a second DualShock 4 controller, a PlayStation Camera, and the Killzone: Shadow Fall launch shooter. It’s what Sony called “the mega bundle”.

Eurogamer compares the prices: “bought separately, the contents would cost £503 when purchased together from Amazon at time of publication (£349 for the PS4 console, £55 for the PlayStation Camera, £54 for a second DualShock 4 and £45 for Killzone: Shadow Fall). That’s roughly a £70 saving.”

Sony UK boss Fergal Gara, speaking to Eurogamer at the Eurogamer Expo today, said:

“I can officially confirm that the answer is yes [Sony will bring the bundle to the UK].

It’ll be similarly benchmarked in euro equivalent. PlayStation 4 is £349 and €399, so it will be the same equivalent.

It will be no more than a tenner either way [of the Xbox One £429 UK price] depending on what conversation rate we use on the given day.”

Not your choice of game? No worries, Sony will announce more bundles tomorrow, since they told UK retailers to alert pre-orderers of the new offers.

Gara added:

“It [the mega bundle] is in limited volume, and therefore it is probably going to go mainly to current pre-order customers, then follow-up volume may well be post-Christmas.

But there are other bundles that also represent incredibly good value. It’s not just about having a good base price. We want to offer value in every way we can.

Starting yesterday, our retail partners are contacting their pre-order customers in order, so starting with the first, working up to when they run out of that special bundle, saying, we now have clarity on exactly what PlayStation 4 bundles we have to offer for day one. Would you like option A, B, C or D?

Everybody who has pre-ordered in the expectation they’re getting just the PS4, including the DualShock 4 and the headset – the basic configuration. But as we’ve worked through the details and worked through the options we’ve come up with some great bundle offers. And it is only fair the first people in the queue get first chance to get that.

It’s a brilliant thing to do for the gamer. In theory there could be some free on day one, but I think it’s unlikely, because the people in that queue are going to say yes please.”

Does this reveal please you? I think I found my launch bundle.
