Sony’s PlayStation has a long history with the “Final Fantasy” franchise, so it should come as no surprise that the two are teaming up to create a bundle, especially with the new release of the PS4 Slim. It includes a limited edition FFXV designed PlayStation Slim, the base FFXV game, “Kingsglaive” and other merchandise.

The Limited Edition “Final Fantasy XV” Bundle

As PlayStation notes, the bundle comes with only with the 1TB version of the PlayStation 4 Slim, which comes with an illustration of FFXV on the front of the console. But other than the gadget itself, it also comes with a variety of “Final Fantasy” merchandise.

Part of the bundle is the “Final Fantasy XV” game itself and the new DUALSHOCK 4, which also sports a FFXV design. Furthermore, it comes with a copy of the “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV” movie in Blu-ray, as well as a number of the game’s DLCs -- “Royal Raiment Outfit,” “Masamune Weapon” and “Leviathan Regalia Skin.”

The bundle is being sold exclusively at GameStop for US$449 (AU$600).

The Standard PlayStation 4 Slim - Specs

The “Final Fantasy XV” bundle naturally includes all the power that comes with the ordinary PlayStation 4 Slim. And while the press release is that the Slim shares the hardware and specs of the standard PS4, there really is more to the thinner console.

For instance, Sony has removed the Optical Out port on the rear of the console and updated the controller (though older controllers are also compatible). Players also have the option to change between hard drives through a specialised panel at the back. There is also a new hard drive supplier, the Toshiba MQ01ABD050 2.5-inch, which allows less fan noise, heat and power consumption. The power consumption of the PS4 Slim is estimatedly 41 percent less than the standard console.

The 500GB model of the PS4 Slim is priced at £259 (AU$457). Meanwhile, the 1TB model is priced at £309 (AU$545).
