Sony has announced a special limited edition Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Pro bundle to go with the much-anticipated launch of Insomniac’s Marvel Spider-Man game scheduled for September 7, 2018. Officially dubbed the Amazing Red, the bundle will contain a red 1TB PS4 Pro console with the Spider-Man logo, a Spidey-themed Dualshock controller and a physical copy of the game. Buyers will also get a download code for the game's City That Never Sleeps Downloadable Content (DLC) for free.
The Spider-Man PS4 Pro bundle will cost $399.99 (Rs 28,000 approx) in the US and pre-orders have already begun. Sony will also release a limited edition Spider-Man PS4 Slim bundle for $299.99 (Rs 21,000). The Slim bundle will just have a similarly designed PS4 Slim instead of the Pro console.
Availability and pricing for India are yet to be revealed. To recall, the God of War PS4 Pro Limited Edition bundle, which was also priced at $399.99 in the US, was launched for around Rs 48,000 in India.
The tech giant will also sell the Spider-Man game bundled with regular black PS4 Pro and Slim consoles once the game launches.
Rumours of a limited edition Spider-Man PS4 emerged on Reddit a few months ago, but Sony did well to keep the final design under the wraps. The official version looks much better than the leaked images.
