Limited-edition ‘Destiny 2’ PS4 Pro bundle comes with new, white console

In recent generations, consoles have steered toward minimal, black designs to better blend in with the rest of an entertainment center. Many people have enjoyed this trend, but many remain who want their consoles to stand out. With the upcoming limited-edition Destiny 2 PlayStation 4 Pro bundle, fans will have a chance to stand out with a white console.

On Monday, the PlayStation Blog revealed this limited-edition bundle includes a copy of Destiny 2 and a code for its expansion pass, which includes access to two add-ons and a digital content pack. Destiny 2‘s Digital Deluxe Edition contains a similar content pack that includes a legendary sword, legendary emote, and a Cabal Empire-themed emblem.

The big draw with this limited-edition bundle is the Glacier White PS4 with a matching controller. This console comes with a 1 TB hard drive and is currently the only way to purchase a white PS4 Pro. With the Digital Deluxe edition selling for $100 and the standard PS4 Pro selling for $399, the Glacier White Destiny 2 PS4 Pro bundle offers a great deal at only $450 in the United States. This $50 in savings is perfect for Destiny fans who were already looking to upgrade to the PS4 Pro.

Historically, this is a repeat of Destiny‘s launch. Sony marked the original game’s launch as a perfect time to release the Glacier White version of the original PS4. While the color variant was originally only available through this bundle, it eventually sold separate from the bundle, but only in Europe. Already this year, Sony has released white, gold, and silver versions of the slim PS4. The Glacier White PS4 Pro marks the first variant offered for the premiere console.

The limited-edition Destiny 2 PS4 Pro bundle launches alongside the game on September 6. In the meantime, Destiny fans have the chance to try out the Destiny 2 beta next week. This open beta kicks off on July 18 and lasts through July 23. Here, players will have the chance to try out multiple play modes including the main campaign, a strike mission, and competitive play. Each of the new subclasses will be available to check out.

We ranked all the best (and worst) video game system startup sounds
The GameCube startup screen appears mid animation.

First impressions are important. That’s true both in people and video game consoles.

The first time you boot up a new gaming system can be a magical moment when done right. There’s always a built-in bit of tension anytime you get a new video game console, as you gingerly unbox it and set it up. That prelude can feel like an orchestra tuning its instruments, building anticipation for the moment where you’ll finally get to power it on and hear the opening notes of a long symphony. And I’m not just speaking in metaphor here; I’m talking about the all-important console startup sound.

Destiny 2: Lightfall fails to deliver its Avengers: Infinity War moment
A titan wielding a grenade launcher in Destiny 2..

The comparison between Destiny 2: Lightfall and Avengers: Infinity War is immediate from the opening moments of Bungie's latest expansion. There is no more exposition to get through; the Witness, a mythical villain that represents the root of the Darkness that Guardians have fought against for close to a decade, is here, and the Traveler who has given our heroes the Light and their god-like abilities is under direct threat. The stakes couldn't be higher, but Lightfall doesn't live up to that moment.

I'm not drawing connections here that shouldn't be made -- the bombastic opening moments of Lightfall call back Infinity War's unrelenting momentum in its first act. The Traveler is under siege in Lightfall and Guardians are dismantled by a flick of the Witness' wrist, echoing the immediate slaughter brought by the hands of Thanos moments before he arrived on Earth. That feeling is the same; our antagonist is here, and there's nowhere else to run. In the final moments of the campaign, a member of my fireteam even exclaimed, "hey, that's a line from Infinity War."

PlayStation Plus just set a new first-party precedent with Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon: Forbidden West

Sony revealed the games coming to PlayStation Plus Premium and PlayStation Plus Extra this month on February 21, and it's the best month that the service has had since it launched in the summer of 2022. Not only are some great PS1 classics like The Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 coming to the service, but Horizon Forbbiden West is getting added as well.
Horizon Forbidden West coming to the service one year after launch is a big deal because Sony has been resistant to putting recent first-party PS5 games on its subscription service. While it's still not adding first-party titles on day one like Xbox Game Pass does, this is possibly our first indication of how Sony will handle adding its own games to the subscription. It's not the only PS4 and PS5 title coming to the service this month either, as the following strong lineup of games was also confirmed to be coming on February 21.

The Quarry (PS4, PS5)
Resident Evil VII Biohazard (PS4)
Outriders (PS4, PS5)
Scarlet Nexus (PS4, PS5)
Borderlands 3 (PS4, PS5) 
Tekken 7 (PS4, PS5)
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (PS4)
Earth Defense Force 5 (PS4)
