God of War Limited Edition PS4 Pro Unveiled


Quote:
Introducing the Limited Edition God of War PS4 Pro Bundle

We are excited to announce that a Limited Edition God of War PlayStation 4 Pro bundle will launch alongside the game on April 20, 2018. This special bundle features a fully customized PS4 Pro console inspired by Kratos’ Axe, a Leviathan Gray DualShock 4 wireless controller with insignia, a physical copy of God of War and digital content. This limited edition bundle will be available across the U.S. and Canada for $399.99 USD (MSRP) / $499.99 CAD (MSRP). Pre-orders start today.

This Limited Edition PS4 Pro was designed in close collaboration with Santa Monica Studio, bringing to life Kratos’ Leviathan Axe. We asked Shannon Studstill, Head of Santa Monica Studio, to share some background on the inspiration behind the special design of the custom PS4 Pro:

“When we designed Kratos’ new Leviathan Axe, we knew it would have far more meaning not only to the game, but to our fans. Santa Monica Studio was extremely proud to adorn the custom PS4 Pro with the Leviathan Axe in such detailed fashion. We spent a painstaking amount of time to ensure this PS4 Pro was special, for the special fans who will cherish it.

The top surface is the Axe skill tree you’ll use in-game to upgrade your axe, along with the runic gem slots on the handle that enable unique special attacks. The side panels are trimmed with a beautiful Norse design, and the runes each represent a realm in the game. The Leviathan Gray DualShock 4 wireless controller has the Huldra Brothers brand on it (just like the Axe), and a very subtle God of War logo on the touchpad.

I enjoyed every bit of the design process with Cory and the team, because we were united in our vision of what we wanted the custom PS4 Pro to embody. The game looks absolutely stunning on PS4 Pro and we can’t wait to share a new beginning for God of War when it launches on April 20.”

When played on PS4 Pro with a 4K TV, God of War outputs in a dynamic 4K resolution achieved through a 2160p checkerboard. Players with 1080p HDTVs will also benefit from increased image clarity via supersampling of a higher resolution onto their display. Across all PS4s, God of War also features HDR lighting and a wide color gamut for those with TVs that support HDR.

I like the runes and design on the front of the box. The top is kinda...not quite ugly, but certainly not all that well laid out.

I'd get it (mainly because I'd like to get a Pro), but I wouldn't want to pay a premium for it.

I want a Pro, but I certainly haven't been blown away by any of the special edition system released so far. My old all-red and all-blue PS3's look better than what Sony has released for the PS4.

The Monster Hunter World special edition console was pretty friggin' awesome.



Unfortunately, it was a Gamestop exclusive and they ordered a very small quantity and kept it as a web exclusive because they weren't sure how successful the game would be. Subsequently, they sold out immediately and became impossible to find for a reasonable price.

Yep. I found out about this console hours too late. I really like it.
