PlayStation is launching limited edition Star Wars PS4 console

Sony is inviting gamers to join the dark side by launching a Star Wars limited edition PS4 this November.

The news emerged from the D23 expo being held in Anaheim this weekend, and was accompanied with the upload of a teaser clip to YouTube earlier today (August 16).

The clip revealed that the console will be adorned with a profile shot of Darth Vader, while Playstation's official blog also added that the limited edition bundle will include a custom 500GB PS4 system (CUH-1200 series) and Dualshock 4 Wireless Controller.

The PS4 console features an image of Darth Vader, as well as a repeated Star Wars logo across the top of the system, while the Darth Vader edition of the controller is inspired by Darth Vader's chest panel and features the repeated Star Wars logo on its touchpad.

Two bundles featuring the Darth Vader console have been announced, one of which being 'Star Wars Battlefront', which comes with a copy of the forthcoming Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition.

A second bundle featuring Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars Edition will also be made available exclusively at Wal-mart in the US on November 17.

This version includes a physical copy of the game, the Disney Infinity Base, the Rise Against the Empire Play Set Pack (featuring Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa figures, as well the Rise Against the Empire Play Set piece), and an exclusive Boba Fett figure, in addition to the Darth Vader console and controller.

Both bundles also include a digital voucher to download four classic Star Wars titles – Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars Bounty Hunter – playable for the first time on PS4.

Meanwhile, the first gameplay footage of Star Wars Battlefront was shown at this year's E3 gaming expo.

The game is set during the events of the original trilogy, allowing players to control its classic heroes and villains, and supporting matches for up to 40 players at once.

It is due out on November 20 in the UK and November 17 in North America for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
