Star Wars PS4 bundle

Obsessive Darth Vader fans (ahem, Kylo Ren!), get ready to feel the dark side of the PlayStation 4 soon! Sony and Electronic Arts have announced the upcoming release of the Darth Vader-inspired PS4 system. This PS4 is dominated by an illustration of the villain’s signature black dome-head and a controller with a color pattern inspired by Darth’s panel. Etched along the PlayStation 4’s side is a repeated “Star Wars” logo as well – so this is no sticker.

Of course, this Limited Edition PlayStation 4 will be released alongside the November 17th release of Star Wars Battlefront. Also another Walmart exclusive bundle will be released on November 17th as a Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition. Besides those two bundle options with their respective title games, a voucher also includes downloadable games from Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars Bounty Hunter. Yeah, it will be awesome to experience the retro Super Star Wars again from the SNES 16-bit era. If you missed out on that, or have foggy memories, this will be a fun way to experience it.

Star Wars PS4 bundle

Looking to pre-order the Star Wars PS4 bundle? All we know at this point is that pre-orders are “coming soon”, but you can more than likely expect for pre-orders to be available during the Star Wars merchandising assault on September Force Friday (that’s September 4th).

And for those of you who aren’t too thrilled to be supporting this dark-sided Darth Vader design, you can always opt for some cool PS4 skins out there.

The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the new gold-standard in action role-playing games. If you enjoy fantasy adventures or even just open world games with awesome storylines, The Witcher 3 is definitely worth owning. The game is vast in areas to explore, has some incredible graphic fidelity, entertains with great character acting and entrancing background music, is highly customizable and unique to each player, and… well, the list goes on and on as to why I highly recommend The Witcher 3. Too vast to capture on video, I decided to share my adventures through the screenshots I took during my complete playthrough of The Witcher 3. Click the link below to flip through over 100 screens and please read the brief captions for a little explanation and details on The Witcher 3. For those of you looking for a quick number, 5 out 5, 10 out of 10 – yes, yes, it is excellent and gaming perfection. Ok, so there are minor things you can point out in the game but the great far outweighs the minor things you may come across. The Witcher 3 is a true labor of love. Don’t let the “3” in the game turn you away either. There is plenty of story and back story to take in. No prior Witcher game experiences are required to enjoy the adventure. See and read more below for a review of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt!

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. DO IT!
