Xbox One X Is Here, So Sony UK Just Announced A PS4 Pro Bundle For The Same Price

I may not be British, but I daresay this qualifies as cheeky.

If you're in the market for a 4K games console, you now have two options: PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Sony made a lot of announcements recently at its Paris Games Week showcase, but we did not get a PS4 Pro price cut or deal ahead of the Xbox One X's release, as some expected. Cut to today, and just as Microsoft's new system is hitting store shelves, Sony has not-so-coincidentally announced a new PS4 Pro bundle.

Dubbed the Only on PlayStation bundle, it consists of a PS4 Pro and a handful of PS4-exclusive games released this year. These include Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Gran Turismo Sport, Wipeout Omega Collection, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Horizon's new DLC expansion, The Frozen Wilds. This is priced at £450--the same amount that Xbox One X costs without any games. Sony indirectly acknowledges as much in its announcement tweet, which followed the price with a winking emoji.

£450 means this is priced at £100 more than a PS4 Pro bundle with one game (FIFA 18), making this a legitimately good deal for those who are interested in what's included. It's currently only available through Game (where it's out of stock as of this writing). However, if you are shopping for a 4K system, one thing to bear in mind is that the PS4 Pro lacks a 4K Blu-ray player, something that is included in both the Xbox One S and Xbox One X.

For a full rundown on the two systems, check out our PS4 Pro review and Xbox One X review. If you decide you'd prefer the latter, you can take advantage of a free Xbox One X game promotion right now.

Shots fired.



heh, that's a pretty good bundle! Nice one Sony UK



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Is it back in stock? It was announced yesterday and it sold out within 4 hours.



If they'd wacked Ratchet in as well would have been a really good bundle.

As it stands you're paying £100 more for 3 additional games, which is... ok.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

They forgot to say Chinese 4K console 😁😁😁😁😁



Yeah it's a BS bundle by game anyway. You can get the exact same thing cheaper buying separate.

PS4 Pro + GTS - £340

Horizon Complete - £36

Wipeout Omega - £25

Uncharted Lost Legacy - £25

Total - £426.   So £24 cheaper.

Wonder if they should have removed something and gone cheaper.
Or built a 1 through 5 saying.
One console, two horizon, 4k, 5 games etc.

Don't know what three should be.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Well, odd to make your pricetag "less impressive" by raising it, but since they are all great games that some may not have, and it sold out in 4h it seems like a worthy bundle...

Waiting for surprises on BF.

thats not the point though. in fact its to highlight the price discrepancy btw the Pro and X.

I agree with the number thing, that would have been clever
