So it was announced today; a scant 49 days ahead of the U.S. launch, that the Amazon France PS4 bundle was also being offered in the UK. For the uninformed this bundle includes The PS4, Killzone Shadowfall, the Camera and an additional controller for the same region specific price as the base XBOX One SKU.
1. Do you think there is any chance of this offer coming to the US?
2. Does Sony need to do this to directly compete with the Xbox FIFA offer or because they want to display how much more value they can give for the same price?
3. Are they able to do this because the actual price of the bundle when converted to USD is still more than it would cost to buy all the items separately in the US?
4. Have bundles always been region specific at launch?
I've never bought a console at launch so I am curious to know what experience others have had or can remember from other console launches regarding bundles. Personally, I do not see this offer coming to the US because we already get the lowest cost of the system.
