While it’s pretty easy to pick up a PS4, sometimes it’s worth splashing out a little extra on a limited edition version of the console. Limited edition consoles usually boast unique designs and features, from the Norse-inspired detailing on the PS4 God of War Edition to the 'Amazing Red' console inspired by Spider-Man. They often come with a game or two too.
Besides looking amazing, limited edition consoles are just that – limited edition. And once all the stock has been sold, limited edition consoles can be sold at a much higher price. We’ve seen limited edition consoles like the 20th anniversary PS4 sell for well over the original price because stock was so scarce.
Here, we list some of the best limited edition PS4s on the market in 2018, and some to look forward to in future too.
Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 Pro
Set to be released on 7 September but available to pre-order now, this limited edition Spider-Man PS4 Pro features a stunning red and white design emblazoned with the trademark Spider-Man logo.
The console is nicknamed 'Amazing Red' was met by much fanfare when it was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con.
Included with the PS4 and matching console, you'll also get the Spider-Man game and The City that Never Sleeps DLC.
The pre-order bonus includes Spidey Suit Pack, 5 extra skill points, early unlock of a Spider-Drone Gadget, a Spider-Man PS4 custom theme and a Spider-Man PSN avatar.
PS4 Days of Play Edition
Sony celebrated the launch of the Days of Play 2018 sale with the reveal of a brand new limited edition 500GB PS4. It’s a slick royal blue and gold combo with unique PS4 branding on the console, and the controllers are also blue instead of the standard black.
Notice we said controllers, plural. That’s because the console comes with not one but two DualShock 4 controllers, saving you around £50/US$60.
God of War PS4 Pro
Whether you’re a long-time fan of the series or yet to play 2018’s God of War, the limited edition God of War 1TB PS4 Pro is a stunning option.
It sports a grey body inspired by Kratos’s iconic axe, and features gorgeous black and gold Norse Rune-inspired detailing across the console. It’s not just the console that got the special treatment though; the console comes with a matching limited edition DualShock 4 controller.
Along with the console, you’ll also get a copy of God of War Day One Edition to play in glorious 4K HDR.
PS4 Pro Kingdom Hearts III Edition
This one isn’t out just yet, but it should be on the radar if you’re a fan of Kingdom Hearts. To coincide with the launch of Kingdom Hearts 3 in January 2019, fans will be able to purchase a limited edition Kingdom Hearts III PS4 Pro. It’ll feature light Kingdom Hearts-themed detailing on both the controller and console.
We’ll be sure to update this closer to release, once it’s available for pre-order.
