The PlayStation 4 is already a great looking console, from the regular model to the Slim, and more recently, the fabulous PS4 Pro. Any PS4 would be a good addition to your console lineup. But what if you wanted something even more special? Something that came in more colours than blue and black, something limited. Well, Sony has got you covered. Here are every limited edition PS4s ever released:
Upcoming Limited Edition PS4
Kingdom Hearts III
While another limited edition PS4 was released in conjunction with Kingdom Heart’s 15th anniversary, a brand new limited edition console will be released at the same time as the release of Kingdom Hearts III. Along with the all-new Kingdom Hearts III, it will also be bundled with the two series compilations, meaning this bundle comes with the entire Kingdom Hearts series. This console is in black, with the series’ iconography adorning the top of the console. The controller is also decked out with this design. So far, this bundle is only confirmed for release in Japan.
An iconic superhero deserves an iconic piece of hardware, and no superhero is as iconic as Marvel’s Spider-Man. Set to make his grand return to video games this September, you can bet a limited edition PS4 will be coming along with it. Spider-Man is iconic enough for the console to just be in the same red as his costume, and decorated with only his logo, in white and practically covering the entire PS4. It is gorgeous and even the controller is extra special, being in the same shade of red and also having white buttons and analog sticks. Truly a marvellous addition to any collector.
God Of War
This limited edition PS4 Pro is a bundle fit for demigods. This silver and gold PS4 is adorned with thematically accurate, tapestry-like runes, similar to the ones you’ll find in Kratos and Atreus’ adventures, Even the controller is in silver and has a rune on it. The game’s logo is also found on the Dualshock 4’s trackpad. All in all, a good bundle for people who would want to get into PS4 gaming and the God Of War franchise.
Days Of Play
Every year, Sony will celebrate Days Of Play during the month of June. A celebration of gamers and games which culminates in a big sale on PlayStation games and usually a limited edition console. For the 2018 Days Of Play, they released a brand new PlayStation 4 Slim in royal blue, adorned with the PlayStation button symbols in gold, and with a matching controller. This limited edition can still be found in some stores and is a pretty good deal for a limited edition console. However, it does not come with a game bundled in. Check it out here.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
While the giant Nathan Drake printed on the side of the console is a little gaudy at best, it’s the steel blue finish on the console and Dualshock 4 that makes this limited edition console stand out. Bundled with Uncharted 4 of course, it’s been a while since that game came out and this bundle isn’t the easiest to find these days. But like any ancient treasure that Nathan Drake would go to lengths to uncover, it is definitely worth it to track down. Check it out here.
Gran Turismo Sport
This PS4 Slim is in silver, but with the base of the console being in jet black. Simplicity is key in this edition, with only the Gran Turismo logo decorating the console. Slick, smooth, and shiny, just like the racecars you’ll be driving in Gran Turismo Sport. The matching controller also comes in the same silver finish and decal on the trackpad. One would’ve thought that a Gran Turismo edition of a PS4 would be in a checkered flag finish, but we’re glad with the actual limited edition they released.
Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy XV may have taken forever to be made, when it finally got released, it brought a limited edition PS4 with it. If FFXV actually came out a generation before, it could’ve been a limited edition PS3! With this limited edition bundle, the PS4 is adorned with a full moon, a common sight in Noctis and co’s adventure. With the game’s title is also printed right in the middle of the moon. This was bundle with the Deluxe edition of the game and even a blu-ray of the Kingsglaive tie-in movie.
Gold & Silver Edition
Nothing says exclusive more than having your products casted in a shiny, metallic colour. The Gold and Silver PS4 Slims were available for 2017’s Days Of Play and was highly sought after. They didn’t come with any games bundled in, but did come with matching controllers. These shiny PlayStations are definitely a holy grail in somebody’s collection.
Quite possibly the hardest to find on this list, the 20th Anniversary limited edition PS4 is a coveted piece of hardware that is a must-have for any longtime Sony fan. A throwback to the classic PlayStation One, it has the same iconic gray finish, and even the old-school PlayStation logo on console as well as the controller’s PS button. This limited edition console is hard to come by, but will definitely fetch a hefty price in 20 years time, so hold on to yours if you have it.
Call Of Duty Black Ops III
A massive franchise like Call Of Duty definitely deserves a worthwhile limited edition console. The Black Ops III edition, opted for a sleek, black and orange colour scheme, emphasising on the exclusive Nuk3town multiplayer map that was included with the bundle. The controller also came in this colour scheme, making a rare two-toned controller that has never been replicated.
Destiny 1, 2 & The Taken King Expansion
Destiny has only 2 games, yet they have 3 exclusive consoles. The Destiny 1 & 2 bundles are actually quite boring, with the Destiny 1 pack being a white original PS4, and the Destiny 2 pack being a white PS4 Pro.
But it’s the Taken King Expansion bundle that took things to the extreme, while it is an expansion for the first game, it had more than enough content to warrant an entire exclusive console to itself. Also cast in white, it had a space mural decal on it, along with the Guardians banner etched right into the middle of the console. It is definitely the console of choice for the most ardent of Destiny fans.
Star Wars Battlefront II
While the game may not be so great, the limited edition PS4 Pro that was available at the time was pretty cool. Being all black, with the Imperial and Rebel insignias on either corner of the console, it certainly did look like a PS4 from the Star Wars universe. Even the controller that came with the bundle had the two symbols on each end of the handles. This set was definitely catering to fans of the series and is definitely a perfect addition to anyone’s Star Wars collection.
Monster Hunter World
Capcom’s multiplayer fantasy series is a game of epic proportions that definitely deserved an epic limited edition PS4. It comes in a matte black finish, with series mascot monster Rathalos decorated on top. Along with the game’s icons placed along the console’s disc tray, the bundle comes with an exclusive blood-red Rathalos controller that is a must-have for any avid Monster Hunter.
All in all, Sony does limited edition right and truly provides a treat for their fans. While there are plenty more fancy looking PS4s out right now, who knows what will come next. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with all things PS4.
