So glad I had this paid off months ago. I cannot wait until I pick my White PS4 up.

Why would I pay more for a system bundle?  The purpose of a System bundle is to get people to by the system by including a free game.  Here you make people pay almost full price for the game.

Wow, Sony wants nothing to do with a price drop. M$ at least gave you Titanfall for free with their bundle unit.

Sony is feeling mighty secure.

Anyone know if this bundle comes with a different version of the game seeing that it's says "Destiny Bundle edition" when describing the game versus just saying "Destiny Game"?

I'm temted to pick this up. But with so little games, I'm not sure if it's worth the price. I don't care about Destiny...And I'd have to pay an additional $60 to keep the PS Plus. I like the white design though...I'm not sure if it'll stay around for long.

Looks like it will be 500$ in Canada.

No boost in memory...the only difference is the color...pathetic. Why 450 bucks? If Sony wants full domination, they'd cut the price of the PS4 by $50 and keep the bundle at $399 to keep the market in their hands...whatever, Xbox One is now closing the gap with their $399 version...someone needs to smash the pawn with the rook.

Looks cool BUT the light bar needs to be something other than white when the consoles on

They should really be throwing the game in for free. This should be $399 for console, controller and game.

Title: $450 PS4 Destiny Bundle

GENIUS Gamespot.

WOW what a deal! 10-20$ off   (not)

If they want to really go toe to toe with Microsoft they should charge like 329.99$ for the console and 379.99$ for this bundle. Then even I would get it and I have absolutely no plans on buying a console whatsoever, but if prices were fair enough I would get me a pretty PS4.

Should have added a few stars on it.

It's a good deal. Not a "great" deal but definitely good. Personally I don't think I could stand owning a white version of this console but that's just me.

@flamingobarnes haha same... My local Gamestop associate said, "Now, you'll have to put $100 down. You know that right?" I replied, "Wait, what? No... Here's all of it... I want to pick that thing up at midnight without any concern".


Cannot wait!

@nurnberg You should consider yourself lucky. In Israel, the original PS4 costs 550$, and games tend to cost about 80$.

@proudy2007 The light bar will be blue, not white.

@aquoon_0nly Its better than what Microsoft did, they created just 1 or 2 xbox ones in white version, and since there are just 1 or 2, they sell it for over $10M, I do think this is outrageous from Microsoft, charing XXX times more for a color on the shell. 

Good Sony didn't follow

Have Sony got you in a arm lock with a gun to your head forcing you to buy it? No, so put your toys away.

@10854 - A pink or red PS4 would go nicely alongside my red PS3. :)

So, they should keep the error? Or acknowledge they never made it?

@stevhall88 It seems to me more like, saving $10 to get a really nice looking limited edition PS4. Glad I was too poor to buy one when it first released.

@stevhall88 They have no need to go "toe to toe" with Microsoft… They've been $100 cheaper since the start until the Microsoft price drop. Why should Sony lower prices and lose money when they are already clearly winning in sales figures?

@juliopalmacr1 @aquoon_0nly this comment is insanely inaccurate. MS made thousands of white consoles and gave them to the employees who worked on the Xbox One and then sold the rest for Charity. 

We are less than 1 year into the console's life cycle. MS will definitely be releasing more versions of the XB1 in the years to come that aren't $10 million dollars. derp.

@themc_7 @juliopalmacr1 @aquoon_0nly Dear themc_7; sorry I was not as informed as you, I am ok receiving comments contradicting my statement, if that is right, however I would ask from you, as a favor and for the overall community to not disrespect people by calling them stupid, or raising the derp fan-anger comment, it only generates a heavy/negative environment. 


As I said, my apologies for my wrong statement, and please threat me and other in the comments with respect. 


Thank you, and have a nice gaming :)
