Playstation Gets Star Wars Love At D23 Expo

This weekend Disney held their official expo, D23. While most of the news was related to movies and television, such as Star Wars The Force Awakens and Captain America Civil War, there were a few drops of gaming news. The biggest gaming surprise had to do with melding Playstation with the Star Wars universe.

First, Sony announced a special limited edition Star Wars Playstation 4 console. The console is black and red with an ominous looking Darth Vader gracing the top of the console. The console will launch in the United States and Europe this November, with preorders opening soon.

Sony is giving fans two opportunities to pick up this console. The first is a 500GB Star Wars Battlefront version, and the second is a 500GB Disney Infinity 3.0 bundle (in Europe the Disney Infinity 3.0 bundle will include a special 1TB edition). If you are not interested in having Darth Vader stare back at you as you try to save the galaxy, a standard black Playstation 4 Star Wars Battlefront bundle will also be available.


The console isn’t the only Star Wars goodness heading to the world of Playstation. Disney also announced that 4 classic Star Wars games will be getting the remaster treatment to arrive on the Playstation 4 this November. Titles include Super Star Wars, Star Wars Racer Revenge, Star Wars Bounty Hunter, and Star Wars Jedi Star Fighter. If you’re into brutal difficulty and throwing your controller, Super Star Wars is definitely the game for you! These games will be included in the special edition Darth Vader console bundles, but will also be available to purchase separately.

With Star Wars The Force Awakens right around the corner, are you excited to pick up your special edition Star Wars Playstation 4? Or are you happy with your current standard console? Let us know in the comments down below!
