Spider-Man is getting an entirely okay limited edition PlayStation 4 console

1 min read

Sony loves trotting out a new version of their PlayStation 4 whenever they’ve got an exclusive game to show off during the year. Sometimes they’re great! Sometimes, the design is godawful. In the case of Spider-Man this September, the design is entirely predictable. When the game was announced as a PS4 exclusive, I took a stab in the dark that the limited edition PS4 that would accompany its release would probably be entirely red, emblazoned with a white spider and have a matching controller.

It’s not often that I’m this right, but I totally was. Check it out below:

It’s…fine? I don’t hate the console, but I’m not slobbering over my keyboard either for it. It’s totally average, although it’s the kind of design that I think a little bit more effort could have been poured into. Maybe a more vibrant tone of red, some subtle texturing on the surface or a few webs on the corners. If this special edition does tickle your webshooter (Eeeeeeeeewwwwww), here’s the flavour text for what the entire bundle includes:

Can’t wait to run along walls and swing through Manhattan in the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man? Us too! Today, we’re thrilled to announce the Limited Edition Marvel’s Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Pro bundle, launching alongside the game on September 7, 2018. This special bundle includes a fully customized Amazing Red 1TB PS4 Pro console featuring the iconic Marvel’s Spider-Man spider, a matching DualShock 4 wireless controller, Marvel’s Spider-Man game on Blu-ray disc, and digital content.

On the plus side, the PS4 Pro above doesn’t look as hideous as last year’s Call of Duty: WW2 PS4 console, which set a benchmark for fugly in hardware design. On the plus side, anyone buying this version won’t shriek like a Japanese schoolgirl on helium when they find a spider in the box. That totally wasn’t me by the way.

    I don’t know what it is but PlayStation LE consoles never look right, they always look like something is wrong with it.

      Definitely one of the best things in the Star Wars universe was the Clone Wars, though I’m sure Disney can ruin this just as well.

    It looks like a 12 year old kid slapped a spider sticker on a red playstation.

    The controller sort of looks like a fake toy controller for a child. You know, the one where you play a game and a child wants to play with so you give it to them so that they can think they are playing with while they bash away at the buttons.

    Irrespective of that, I really like it.
