Before E3, engineers specialising in the creation of plastics for consumer products, somewhere deep in a secret Sony laboratory, were hard at work perfecting the whites that would be suitable for the special Destiny PlayStation 4 bundle. A monumental combination of a highly desirable game and a decadently snow-white piece of gaming hardware.
That bundle is set to go on sale alongside the game on September 9th, but Shuhei Yoshida has now revealed to French site GameOne that the white PS4 will also be available on its own later this year, as reported by CVG earlier today.
Presumably the finance deprtment balked at the thought of spending so much money on finding the most pristine shade of plastics to use and had the marketing department draw up a Venn diagram a little like this:
As you can plainly see, there is certainly an overlap between the people who would buy a white PS4 and those who would like to buy Destiny, but there are others who would like to have a white PS4 without the game. Perhaps they still hold a grudge against Bungie over selling out to Microsoft in 2000?
Then again, maybe they’re waiting for something that can go next to their transparent N64…
Update: SCEA has been in touch to clarify that this Glacier White PlayStation 4 has been announced for Europe. In North America, it will be available as part of the Destiny bundle.
