Sony announces the first official PS5 console bundle that comes with a game


Sony is releasing the first official PlayStation 5 console bundle in the UK, pairing the game with Horizon Forbidden West, a PS exclusive.

It’s hard to believe that the PlayStation 5 has been out for over a year already. With demand far outstripping supply, many Sony fans have yet to get their hands on the latest iteration of the long-running PlayStation line. While that’s not likely to help with availability, potential buyers in the UK can now purchase the first PlayStation 5 bundle package which includes the console-exclusive action-adventure title. Forbidden Horizon West.


Although the package is not yet available in the US, speculation suggests that it will boast a fifty dollar price increase over the base PlayStation 5. Since most AAA PlayStation 5 titles cost seventy dollars, those planning to buy both the console and the game will reap a profit of twenty dollars. Despite the latest Horizon title enduring a critical bombardment at launch, the game performed well critically, although gamers are more likely to jump on any PlayStation 5 offering currently available, regardless of the critically acclaimed game the console is playing with. is provided.

Forbidden Horizon West might seem like a superfluous addition, but Sony usually doesn’t wait very long to release console bundles. Packages combining PS4 consoles with copies of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection or Star Wars Battlefront were available for the 2015 holiday season, and the PS3 was bundled with copies of Solid metal gear 4 as early as 2008. Of course, no brand new titles developed by Naughty Dog are yet available for the PS5 and with the metal gear essentially MIA franchise, Forbidden Horizon West feels like a reasonable choice for the first PlayStation 5 bundle.

However, Sony’s decision to go with the newest Horizon the title may seem strange to some given the intensity of Bluepoint Demon’s Souls remake was released when the console launched. Not only has it sold over a million copies to date, but Demon’s Souls was the most downloaded PS5 game in Japan in 2020. It may be that the publisher wanted to include something more accessible than the notoriously difficult FromSoftware title in the console’s first bundle, and that decision could also stem from the wish of Sony to make Aloy a flagship product. gaming mascot for the ninth generation of consoles.

It should also be noted that, although certainly less publicized than Forbidden Horizon Westevery PlayStation 5 console comes with Astro’s Playroom, which is apparently a short tech demo meant to showcase the new features included in the DualSense controller. Still, whichever game Sony chooses to bundle its system with, the scarcity will force most buyers to grab whatever console they can rather than wait for a bundle.
