The PlayStation 4 has already developed into a powerhouse in the console game, and it’s about to take another step forward with Sony officially confirming that a 1 TB PS4 Bundle will be made available in the United States this fall. That is double the storage space of the largest option currently available, which is the 500 GB version of the system.
By adding a 1 TB PS4 Bundle to their stable, Sony continues to gain momentum with its next-generation video game console. The system has already received a big boost from the recent release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, an exclusive title developed by Konami that has scored received incredible scores from critics across the country. The bundle that includes this new, beefed up model of the system will come with another upcoming game from a top-tier franchise that is expected to be a system-seller.
The 1 TB PS4 Bundle Comes With Black Ops III
As a promotional crossover, the 1 TB PS4 Bundle comes with the newest installment of Activision’s acclaimed series of warfare-based first-person shooters. Call of Duty: Black Ops III is set to release on November 6th, a date that coincides with the launch of this 1TB PS4 model. The system will actually be designed in the style of the game, with orange trim complementing the black frame. The controller will also match this aesthetic, with a gray-colored body and orange directional pad buttons and analog sticks.
Surely not everyone will be a fan of this look. I personally am partial to the traditional style of the PlayStation 4, which is all black with a few small brand features. However, if you believe in sacrificing form for function, you’ll probably be able to make due with this new style, and anyone who’s a big fan of the Black Ops series will probably love the cross-branding. You can enhance your experience with the system and the game by picking up the HyperX Headset, which is widely hailed as the best pair of dedicated gaming headphones available.
Unlike Metal Gear, Black Ops III is not an exclusive title for the PS4 but this is appears to be a rare occurrence where Sony’s console gets special treatment from Activision over its competitor, Microsoft’s Xbox One.
Space Galore In The 1 TB PS4 Bundle
If you own a PS4 and you’re a fairly active gamer, there’s a decent chance you’ve already bumped up against the system’s storage limits. Installing games and apps will eat up space quickly on the console, and even the higher-end 500 GB model can run out of room quite quickly. The 1 TB version was a necessary addition to the company’s lineup, and we suspect that eventually a plain, non-branded version of this upgraded unit will become available.
For now, though, this Black Ops III bundle is the only option for a 1 TB PS4. Available in the US on November 6th, 2015 at a price of $450, it’s sure to be a big hit with the holidays fast approaching.
We’ll keep you posted on the 1 TB PS4 bundle and other video game news, so stay tuned.
