Sony Embraces the Dark Side With Limited Edition Darth Vader PS4 Console and Controller


Bundling up with two forthcoming Star Wars titles–Star Wars: Battlefront and Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars–the Darth Vader-themed PlayStation 4 is a special edition console that’s sure to lure gamers over to the Dark Side.

Darth Vader’s helmeted mug looms large on the 500GB console’s surface, surrounded by a repeating “Star Wars” text logo effect. The matching DualShock 4, designed as a replication of Darth Vader’s chest panel, features a blue R1 button, white (or perhaps it’s grey or silver–I can’t quite tell from pictures) analog sticks and Triangle, Square, and Cross buttons, red d-pad buttons, and a lone red face button, the infamous Circle. The repeated logo also appears on the surface of the touchpad as an extra flourish.


Another awesome bonus included with both bundle options is a voucher to download four retro Star Wars games, including Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars: Bounty Hunter. These four titles will make their debut together on PlayStation 4 with enhanced graphics and trophy support.

Pricing and pre-order information has not yet been announced, but both bundles are scheduled to ship on November 17th, day and date with the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront. Standard edition bundles featuring the same core content with Jet Black PS4s and DualShock 4s instead of the Darth Vader paint job will also be made available, presumably at a cheaper price.

Unfortunately the Darth Vader PS4 and DualShock 4 will not be sold apart from the bundles.
