Pre-Ordered a PS4? Here Are Your Bundle Options in the UK

Posted by Sammy Barker

Because everyone loves a big box

If you’ve already pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 in the UK, chances are you’ll have been contacted by your retailer of choice regarding one of several Sony sanctioned bundles. Unfortunately, the platform holder has been curiously vague about these packages in the public space, leaving it down to IGN to actually confirm the contents of these options with GAME.

First and foremost, you’ll still be able to purchase the console on its own for £349 if you like, though you’ll be able to add Killzone: Shadow Fall or Watch Dogs for £399. Upgrading will net you the Special Edition of Guerrilla Games’ first-person shooter, though it’s not entirely clear what that entails just yet. Perhaps it comes with the game’s Season Pass?

Elsewhere, you’ll be able to buy the system alongside the aforementioned fist-party favourite and the retail edition of DriveClub for £439, or you’ll have the option to snag the previously announced Mega Bundle – which includes Killzone: Shadow Fall, an additional DualShock 4, and the new PlayStation Eye – for £449. Not quite within the same price range as the Xbox One, then, but no less enticing.

It’s interesting that adding a game to the console whacks an additional £50 on top, lending credence to the rumours suggesting that next generation titles will sell for around £60. Sony’s yet to confirm a fixed recommended retail price for PS4 releases in the UK, but it’s not looking promising at the moment, is it? We’ve got our fingers crossed that costs will settle down soon.

In the meantime, though, have you been offered one of these bundles by your chosen retailer yet? Are you still waiting to get a phone call or email? Which of these options is tickling your fancy? As always, let us know in the comments section below.

Have been really impressed with GAME since pre-ordering. My local store called me last week, offered me first dibs on the Mega Bundle and told me I could pick it up on launch day. Really efficient.



Sanquine said:

I would do anything to have that killzone bundle!
@Sammy of topic. Any news about YS memories of celceta ?

@Reverend_Skeeve I was going to get the camera separately anyway, so just figured that the big package was the best option. Always useful to have a spare controller.

@get2sammyb Awesome! I preordered my PS4 at Amazon Germany and they didn't offer me to upgrade yet...but as it is, I might have problems to even scrape together the 399,- € for the console itself, so the 500,- bucks may be out of reach anyway...but if I had the money, this is the package I'd get in a heartbeat, for Killzone is one of my most wanted games.



ZeD said:

I have the basic Killzone bundle! Money is tight and I can only afford one game on launch



get2sammyb said:

@ZeD I think you've picked the right one. It looks like Killzone's going to have an awesome online community.



Malouff said:

Anyone know if the US will get this type of a bundle?

I also wish that they would give the US more info on when we will get what seems like Europe's exclusive Blue and Red Dualshock controllers.



ZeD said:

@get2sammyb Also I will be getting Resogun & 1/2 of Driveclub!
Resogun was a lot of fun to play!
What I like about Killzone is that it has a Halo 3 feel to it with the community.



Reverend_Skeeve said:

@ZeD PS+ sub runs till 10/2014, so even if I can't afford much games, there's always Resogun and Driveclub plus 3 or 4 free to play games, so I should be good anyway...

And Killzone...yes...has a good feeling from what I saw so far...really looking forward to give it a spin in online mp...and I hardly play online anymore.

Especially when I'm able to play with some guys from pushsquare, I'm sure there's gonna be some nice matches...usually, I find most people I meet online to be immature jerks.



ZeD said:

I think I am going to have to update my friends list!



PMasterTy9 said:

how com I am constantly seeing articles on bundles for the UK and Europe? What about the USA?



charlesnarles said:

Dang, I was just gonna get a camera, game, and maybe 2nd controller separately cause in the US all the GameStop bundles were taken : ( They're not contacting anybody, either. I'd love to be propositioned by them to spend more money, but oh well.
I'm 8 hours away from y'all, so idk if anyone would still be on at 6 am your time when I'll be able to play (probably lol)

Judging by Killzone Mercenary, Shadow Fall can be superb. I beat Killzone Mercenary yerstoday and want more.I wanted to buy PS4 with Infamous, but now eager to buy it day one to play Shadow Fall. Mercenary shows that little sandboxes with objectives are much better choise for Killzone, than corridors.

@get2sammyb Game may get some bad press in some quarters for games being over priced compared to say Amazon, but you can't deny their customer service. I initially preordered a PS4 online and recieved an email asking if I wished to upgrade to a bundle or keep my existing preorder. I upgraded to the mega bundle as it offered the most value for money.

@Sanquine - When did you trade in your girlfriend for a big eyed anime girl?

@get2sammyb - "My local store called me last week, offered me first dibs on the Mega Bundle"

Did you offer them a mention on your blog* Just kidding. though I think if it were my website I would. Sad but true.

*blog sounds insulting but the proper term alludes me, you know what I mean.



Sanquine said:

@rjejr Never traded her in. She does not mind. Big fan of rosario + vampire

But if i need to change the avatar im okej with that..



rjejr said:

@Sanquine - Just checkin. When I'm late to a thread - went away for the weekend - I usually just skim the icons to see if anybody I know posted.

Feel free to use whatever icon you like.

Still can't believe there's no word of something like this in the US. I guess in the end it's their loss because if there is no bundle I will likely go home with just the system and an extra controller. No game or camera. If they offered me that Killzone bundle I'd pony up the extra cash for the game and they would have succeeded in getting me to go home with that camera I have zero intention of buying otherwise.
