No special edition Battlefront bundle for Xbox One

Star Wars PlayStation 1

Battlefront is coming and poised to make EA a ridiculous amount of money. The tie in marketing with the movie release, as well as the launch of Disney Infinity 3.0 is definitely going to reignite Star Wars fever for everyone except Geoff. That Battlefront PS4 bundle is a thing of pure beauty that I’ve decided I totally need for no reason, but it’s even more special than people might have thought.

In a recent community update, the Battlefront team answered some of your burning questions:

Q.) Will there be a special edition Xbox One bundle?
A.) The exclusive console for Star Wars Battlefront is limited to PlayStation 4.

Q.) Will you offer the custom PS4 bundle controller separately?

A.) We have nothing to announce at this time. Stay tuned to the Sony channels for news and updates.

It really is interesting to see that EA’s special relationship with Xbox isn’t in force for this massive title, as I predicted a couple months ago. Sure, I’ll bet EA Access will give subscribers something a bit earlier on, but Xbox One fans won’t be able to get a sexy version of the console (and particularly that controller). Nor can they opt for the super special version that does away with the retro games and instead includes the PS4 exclusive Boba Fett Disney Infinity figurine. Yeah, it’s definitely interesting to see that EA and Xbox One aren’t playing co-op on this title.

Oh, and the community post reiterated that split-screen will be available for offline co-op for PS4 and Xbox One. Just in case anyone forgot.

    No big surprise at all as Phil Spencer clearly stated that MS’s attention is luckily moving towards 1st party IP’s and away from all these 3rd party deals! ???????????? I’m sure it’ll sell good though, although that must be the shittiest decal ever, drawn by a kid on the short bus, on his way to school…….in under a minute!????

      It really is pretty crap. I love the design of the PS4, and clearly have an obsession with the dark side, but this limited edition design is 100% meh. Really feel they could have made this a bit more spectacular.

      If it was drawn by a kid on the shortbus then surely the XBOX One was designed by the same kid. Yes? No?

          You can actually get the legends in game by just playing a lot! And this bundle will cost the same if not less than a normal console… that is how you win the market… Oh sorry you are on the green side of things…

            Ehhhhhhh, was actually talking about Sony pissing money away on the “marketing costs” for these various 3rd party “exclusives” and “bundles”. Would you not have been a happier pony if they just used that money for new 1st party IP’s instead? Seriously?

            Nope, ek is meer as gelukkig met my line up van games vir die res van die jaar. Of daar nou Sony, Ubisoft, EA of wie ookal staan as die game begin het my rerig nog nooit gepla nie… Maak dit rerig vir jou ‘n verksil? Solank ek goeie games kan speel is ek ‘n happy chappy!

            Dit maak nogals n verskil vir my maar ek is nie mal oor Indies nie! Daar is deesdae baie minder AAA games en hopeloos te veel Indies as gevolg van die feit dat dit so baie kos om te ontwikkel! As Sony soos MS al hierdie 3de party nonsens stop en al daai geld op AAA spandeer sal ons almal meer en beter games he. Ouens soos EA ens. sal steeds hul games maak of iemand hulle nou ekstra betaal vir n ekslusiewe sticker of nie….

            Ek het nie baie game tyd buite Destiny en Fifa oor nie, so ek gee nie rerig om dat daar nie meer so baie AAA games is nie. Ek is net rerig gatvol vir al die open world games, ek soek ‘n linear game met ‘n goeie story… Die hartseer ding vir my is dat die indie games het nou baie beter stories as die AAA games en dit suck!

            As dit nie PC toe kom sal ek verseker ‘n Xbox ONE koop vir dit en vir Gears 4! Sonder om twee keer daaroor te dink.

    I don’t like this design. I would however like to own the Destiny Taken King console… Are those sold out or haven’t gone on sale yet? If you guys see the sale starting please let me know, I would own two PS4’s for that console!

        Don’t be angry that Microsoft is once again behind with their thinking…. One day they will catch on that it works to bundle your console with a big release!! You sell yet another console and the third party gets their game in more hands. Win – Win

            I’ve got two controllers and the one is starting to peel. I blame Bloodborne for that. Then again. I bought them back in 2013.

            August 28, 2015 at 08:35

            Of course you blame Bloodborne, they all do as it’s the only exclusive that got any real playtime anyway…… But it’s pretty messed up that Sony’s got you believing that a 2 year only lifecycle of a controller is justified….

            The controller is fine, the rubber on the thumb grip is starting to peel… Ever heard of thumb grips? I have had two controllers replace by Sony and I now have thumb grips on my two new ones and they look 100% new. R58 for the thumb grips…

            Oeee nee, wag nou so bietjie my seun, wag nou! One simply cannot start with “the controller is fine” and then move on to “the rubber on the thumb grip is starting to peel” AND “I have had two controllers replace by Sony”??!! Nee nee nee! ????????????

            Ek rate ‘n maatskappy op wat hulle doen as daar kak met hulle produk is. Ek het altwee remotes in gevat en hulle is binne 30 minute geruil…. Dit is goeie diens, en dit is al wat ek nodig het. En om die rubber te beskerm met R58 se grips maak nie kwaad nie!

            Ek hoor jou, maar goeie kwalitiet kon dit in die eerste plek voorkom het! Die Xbox 360 se RROD was pateties al het hulle elke keer my console geruil (een keer ‘n courrier gestuur met nuwe console en ou een op getel!). Fantastiese diens, maar dit kon ook voorkom gewees het. MS het geleer daaruit, kom ons kyk of Sony dieselfde doen….

            The controller works perfectly. It’s the rubber that’s worn out after two years. And that happens to rubbers everyday.

    Do people buy exclusive consoles? I imagine so. The actual question is, does it drive console sales or would they have bought a console anyway and gone, well, why not? and get it then?

    the xbox this time around is the minority console ,so its what we all expect , I never thought the xbox would do so bad in japan though it sold 160 last week that’s embarrassing they might as well just pull out of it over there, I was in japan working over there in Tokyo last week and the xbox is the butt of all jokes , the Japanese really hate the machine and I don’t know why.
