If you don't own a PlayStation 4, here's a bundle that's too good to pass up. Sony just announced a PS4 bundle that comes with a free copy of Red Dead Redemption 2. No strings attached. Just buy the console and get what's sure to be an amazing game packaged with it for free.
The bundle was announced yesterday, as reported by Polygon, and will come out on October 26th right alongside Red Dead Redemption 2's standard release. It will include a 1 TB PS4 Pro console, a DualShock 4 wireless controller, and a physical copy of Red Dead Redemption 2. It will sell for $399.99, the standard price of a 1 TB PS4 Pro on its own.
In case you're wondering what it looks like, here's the set with its neat box:
As you can see, it's just a regular black PS4 Pro. That makes sense, because a specially-designed console would just up the price. Affordability seems to be the goal with this one, so it doesn't get the sleek paint job of the Spider-Man PS4 that released earlier this month.
Pre-orders have already begun, so you should head to your favorite retailer soon if this deal appeals to you. Then again, you might want to hold off if you plan to go all-in on Red Dead Redemption 2. The version that comes with the bundle is just the standard edition, as GameSpot points out. Should you want all of those extra horses, clothes, and missions, you'll have to spring for the $80 Special Edition or the $100 Ultimate Edition.
There's also no mention of what will happen with the game's announced PS4-exclusive content, although it's safe to bet that purchasers of this bundle are entitled to it. Still, perhaps it's better to wait and get more information before running out to buy this bundle. This definitely seems like the sort of bundle that would be prime fodder for a Black Friday deal, if not this year then definitely in 2019. Although it is a really good deal as it is now...
Red Dead Redemption 2, whether you have a PS4 or not, will release on October 26th.
