PlayStation 4 heads to the dark side with new Darth Vader-themed Star Wars bundles

With the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens only months away, a slew of related merchandise is headed to store shelves. In honor of both the upcoming movie and the impending release of Star Wars Battlefront, Sony has decided there is no better time to introduce two new PlayStation 4 bundles.

A new limited-edition PlayStation 4 lies at the heart of both bundles, revealed by Sony VP of Publisher Relations Adam Boyes on the PlayStation Blog. This 500GB console is emblazoned with the face of none other than Darth Vader himself, as well as the Star Wars logo on top of the console. The included DualShock4 controller comes in a red and black color scheme and features the logo once again, this time on the touchpad.

The Star Wars Battlefront bundle includes the aforementioned console along with the upcoming game of the same now, but that’s not all that’s included. The bundle also includes a voucher for four downloadable games from across the pantheon of Star Wars games: Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, and Star Wars: Bounty Hunter.

For those who prefer their games a bit more on the lighthearted side, a Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars bundle will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart. This bundle features the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition game, a Disney Infinity base, the Rise Against the Empire Play Set Pack, (which features Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa figures) and a Boba Fett figure. This bundle also features the voucher for downloadable games.

In addition to the two limited edition bundles, a standard Star Wars Battlefront PlayStation 4 bundle will be available. This includes a standard PS4, DualShock4 controller in jet black, Star Wars Battlefront and the downloadable game voucher. All four games have feature enhanced graphics and full trophy support.
