4 PS4 pre-order bundles to look out for in Singapore
The cat is out of Sony’s bag. The PlayStation 4’s launch date and pricing for Singapore was announced this morning, along with special pre-order bundles for the console. Here’s more information on these PlayStation 4 (PS4) bundles, as well as our recommendations for the most suitable bundle for yourself, dear reader! We’re also including some information on the other peripherals for the console.
The bundles are limited to pre-orders only and will last for as long as stocks of the console do. While there have been instances where stocks of limited console and game bundles didn’t sell out (think that God of War PS3 bundle that stayed on retail shelves for forever) it’s highly unlikely the first run of PS4 stocks are going to hold out against hungry console gamer hordes. Pre-order it just in case. We already have.
1. Just the PlayStation 4
This is your basic pre-order package. The SGD$639 console will come with one month’s PlayStation Plus membership.
Get this if…you just want the damn console.
2. PlayStation 4 + camera
This SGD$689 bundle comes with the PlayStation camera, which costs SGD$87.90 on its own. If you were planning on getting the camera as well, this saves you SGD$37.90. As with the base PS4 pre-order, you also get a month’s worth of PlayStation Plus membership.
Get this…to save on the camera.
3. PlayStation 4 ‘Battlefield 4’ bundle
For just SGD$709 you get the console, two months of PlayStation Plus membership, a copy of Battlefield 4 (PS4) and a SGD$10 PlayStation Network (PSN) voucher. This is a special bundle set and has limited quantities.
Get this if…you’re a Battlefield 4 fan, duh! Or if you want to experience one of the most visually breathtaking launch titles for the PS4.
4. PlayStation 4 Killzone Shadow Fall Bundle
Ringing in slightly below the Battlefield 4 bundle at SGD$699, the Killzone bundle includes the console, two months of PlayStation Plus membership, a copy of Killzone Shadow Fall (PS4) and a SGD$10 PlayStation Network (PSN) voucher. This is a special bundle set and has limited quantities.
Get this if…you’re a Killzone fan, or if you want to add to your PS4 game collection without paying full price for it.
Do note that all PS4 pre-orders come with one mono headset, one AC power cord, a HDMI cable, and a USB cable. Additional peripherals, like the ones listed below, have to be bought separately.
Dualshock 4 Charging Station
No longer will you have to sit painfully close to your TV screen, squinting your eyes against the LCD glare while waiting for your Dualshock controller to charge. Nor will you have to leave your console on so it can charge. Simply plug your Dualshock into the new charging station.
Suggested retail price: SGD$46.90
PS4 Vertical Stand
This is a pretty swanky (and expensive) piece of plastic, but at least you know it’ll be put to good use. The Vertical Stand does as it claims: it helps you stand your PS4 vertically.
Suggested retail price: SGD$36.90
A must have if you’re looking to engage in more family friendly games like the Playroom or Just Dance 4. It can be bought separately or with the PS4 camera bundle.
Suggested retail price: SGD$87.90
