Limited Edition Battlefield Hardline PS4 Announced for Japan

By   /   Mar 19, 2015

Now this is really unfair, Japan is getting yet another special edition PS4 while the west watches. Sony announced a Battlefield Hardline themed PS4 that has a laser etched HDD cover showing three characters from Battlefield Hardline.

Not the most creative design but it’s tempting enough.

I think Sony is taking notes from Nintendo as they regularly release special edition systems and so far, Nintendo has done well in this regard hasn’t it?

Anyways, the PS4 in question is the standard 500GB version but I believe fans would have appreciated an HDD upgrade. Games these days keep taking more space due to post-release patches, so 500GB isn’t really enough. Sony is yet to release a 1TB version and If I’m correct, none of their special editions feature a 1TB HDD.

The Battlefield Hardline themed system has a CUH-1100AB01/BF product code and features all the standard accessories including a dualshock 4, HDMI cable, mono headset and a power cord. Sony priced the system at 47,980, which is around $398 USD.

Japan is also graced with The Evil Within edition, Yakuza Zero and the recently announced Bloodborne edition PlayStation 4. Well, times like this make you want to move to Japan.

Hopefully, Sony will release more special edition systems like this for the western market. Until then, importing is the only option for fans outside the region.
