Announced at D23 expo is the upcoming limited edition Darth Vader PS4 console, coming 17th November. It will be available in two bundles - Battlefront or Disney Infinity 3.0 (though it sounds like the Infinity bundle is exclusive to Walmart in the US) - no word yet on international availability -

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2015/08/ ... 4-bundles/
The Limited Edition Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Bundle will include a custom 500GB limited edition PS4 system (CUH-1200 series) and DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller inspired by Darth Vader. The fully customized PS4 features an image of Darth Vader, as well as a repeated Star Wars logo across the top of the system. The Darth Vader edition DUALSHOCK 4 is inspired by Darth Vader’s chest panel and features the repeated Star Wars logo on its touchpad.

The bundle also includes Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition, as well as 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, and sporting enhanced graphics and Trophy support. I’ll give you a minute to take that all in…

...we’re also offering a standard-edition Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Bundle which includes a PS4 system (CUH-1200 series) and DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller in Jet Black, as well as Star Wars Battlefront and a digital voucher for the four classic Star Wars games.

It does look nice, but (being picky) I'd prefer an exclusive XBox.

Just wait & see I guess.

Freddy called this!

I'm not one for such tie-ins, but that's quite good to look at, unlike the Artoo consoles.

My gawd... to play those last two games, again, would be awesome!

With that, thanks for the heads-up, 'cause it is being pre-ordered!

I'm in California for the last couple weeks of November, so it looks like I'll be the last person to play Battlefront!

In case people aren't keen on buying a whole console to access the older games, Playstation has confirmed they will be available to buy separately from the Playstation store -

Yes – you’ll be able to buy the four games separately on PS Store. They’ll have Trophy support, too!
