Xbox One Not Getting Star Wars Battlefront Console Bundle
"The exclusive console for Star Wars Battlefront is limited to PlayStation 4."
When Sony and Disney announced the special-edition PlayStation 4 console bundle themed around Star Wars Battlefront earlier this month, Xbox One fans might have wondered if they, too, were getting a similar system. They are not, Electronic Arts has now confirmed as part of a new blog post.
"The exclusive console for Star Wars Battlefront is limited to PlayStation 4," Battlefront community manager Matthew Everett said.
The Battlefront PS4, which is themed around Darth Vader, also comes with a controller sporting a design based on the iconic Star Wars villain's chest panel. In addition, the package features four digital Star Wars games and comes with Battlefront's Deluxe Edition. Take a look at the premium package above.
Pricing for the Battlefront PS4 bundle has not been announced, and preorders are not yet open. In addition to the Battlefront PS4 bundle featured above, Sony will release a standard bundle that comes with a regular PS4, jet black DualShock 4 controller, a copy of Battlefront, and the four digital Star Wars games.
In 2011, Microsoft and LucasArts teamed up for an R2-D2-themed Xbox 360 console that came with a copy of Kinect Star Wars. Microsoft also released a metallic C-3PO Xbox 360 controller for this bundle.
