PlayStation 4 Bundle

Sony are rumoured to be releasing a PlayStation 4 bundle similar in cost to that of the Xbox One this November. But what exactly will we get in this bundle? Quite a lot it would appear.

The bundle is allegedly going to cost €499 which equates to around £427, a mere £3 less than the Xbox One at launch. Sources close to Sony claim the bundle will include along with the PS4 console, an additional Dualshock 4 controller, the PlayStation 4 camera and a copy of Killzone: Shadow Fall.

Originally Sony had planned to release the PlayStation 4 camera as standard, but quickly dropped the camera before their E3 press conference. This proved to be a very clever move as it created a price point for the PlayStation 4 of £329. A sizeable saving of £80 vs the Xbox One. However it would now seem that Sony now believe, as Microsoft has all along, that there is a market at the £400+ price point and Sony would appear to want to take advantage of it.  
If the items included in this bundle were to be pre-ordered separately, it would cost around £500 for them all.

It's unknown at the moment as to whether or not customers who have already pre-ordered the PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade or amend their orders. But I can imagine its something Sony will consider, as many gamers will likely wish to take advantage of the savings that can be made through purchasing this bundle.
