The rumours are true. Sony has announced the PS4 Slim Gold Edition. At the moment will be available in the US only but can only be bought from June 9 to June 17. Sony is hyping “additional discounts on software and accessories” albeit not revealing any details just yet.
Aside from being gold, it has a price of USD$249 (Roughly 894,000 UGX exclusive of shipping), lower than the USD$299 (Roughly 1.08 million UGX) price point of the standard black PS4 Slim. So far there doesn’t seem to be any plans to bring this specific edition outside of the US with Sony’s European and Indian counterparts yet to announce it for their respective regions.
Sony has far better bundles on the store shelves. Particularly its latest offering. 616,000 UGX gets you a PS4 Slim 500GB console, Horizon Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, and Driveclub. In addition to this, Sony India is also throwing in a three month subscription to PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) – Sony’s online service that allows you to play multiplayer and grants you access to an assortment of games each month. Not to mention it comes with official warranty and support.
Granted, you’re missing out on an additional 500GB of storage space, but between the PS4 hard drive being simple to replace and support for external hard drives, this is far from an issue.
