Thread Details

I love me a special edition console but do others buy them? thought we could make a master list of consoles coming out - I kicked myself for not knowing when to pre-order the 20th Anniversary PS4 for example. I don't mean the vanilla console with a game bundles (I guess we can list comic con etc specials you couldn't buy).

Special Editions So Far:

Xbox - White with Sunset Overdrive - $449
Xbox - COD 1TB Themed console - $499
Xbox - Forza 6 1TB Themed console - $399

PS4 - White with Destiny - $449
PS4 - Metal Gear Solid Themed console (JAP/EU) - $700 approx
PS4 - White with graphics Destiny Taken King console - $399
PS4 - 20th Anniversary Edition (eBay) - $2k?


Coming Soon:

Xbox - Halo 6 1TB Themed console - $499
Xbox - Advanced bundle with the $150 controller? vanilla console? $549?
PS4 - Black with Vader? $399?

I don't want any more - I just love the themed consoles. It started with the r2d2 360. I'm trying to not waste more money but I still like to see what they do to them - for example I won't buy the Star Wars ps4 (but would have the batman - there's one to add to the list)

It's basically a regular PS4 with a Darth Vader helmet sticker on it, honestly, nothing special. The coinciding controller looks horrific.

I just googled the forza6 console and I really love that color.

Yeah, the Forza 6 color scheme looks nice. I wonder if the custom sounds make it cheesy or if they actually sound nice.

Apparently the power button and maybe the eject button make some sort of racing noises. I think one of the other special edition consoles does something similar as well.

The r2d2 360 makes R2-D2 beeps, RL the CoD one makes laser charging noises

Hmm, that could be cool or gay.

I would personally like the r2d2 beeping though.
