Darth Vader-inspired PlayStation 4 unleashes the force this November

In prelude to the release of the Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens and Star Wars Battlefront later this year, the force has never really been this strong, and brands know this.

PlayStation just revealed a Darth Vader-inspired PlayStation 4 console (CUH-1200 series) which comes with 500GB of memory, a customised DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller as well as a pretty curious bundle of games.

The customised console is sold alongside the Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition as well as four digital copies of the old jedi-jammin’ classics; Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars Bounty Hunter.

The four classic titles are playable on the PlayStation 4 for the first time and have enhanced graphics as well as Trophy support. Either remastered titles or Sony’s way of hinting at introducing backward compatibility in the near future, to compete with the Xbox One.

Either way, this bundle shows us that the Japanese company is technically capable of enabling PS4 gamers to play PS3 and PS2 titles. Or we’re just being hopeful.

The bundle will drop 17 November with pre-orders starting “soon”.
