The first official PS5 bundle comes with Horizon Forbidden West
While it’s not uncommon to find a PS5 bundle, they’ve all so far been unofficial retailer-created bundles designed to get consumers to spend more money when buying the elusive console. But after more than a year and a half, Sony releases the first official PS5 bundle. as seen by Wario64PlayStation Direct has included ps5 Y PS5 digital editions with Horizon Forbidden West. They’ve been available in the UK for about a week, but PS Direct is the first US retailer to list them.
The packs are not yet available for purchase, but you’ll want to make sure you’re registered for a chance to buy a PS5 from PS Direct. Considering that the list is available on PlayStation Direct, we imagine that they will be available soon.
It’s unclear how much each pack will cost in North America. UK retailers they’ve been selling them for a £20 discount rather than buying PS5 and Horizon Forbidden West separately. So it seems likely that the PS5 version will cost around $550 and the PS5 Digital could cost around $450.
Regardless of the PS5 model you choose, the package comes with a voucher with a game key that can be redeemed at PlayStation Store.
While the PS5 has been extremely hard to find in stock since early 2022, Sony’s sales forecast for the rest of the year suggests that the PlayStation 5 will be available for purchase more frequently in the coming months. Still, don’t be surprised if this Horizon Forbidden West bundle sells out in minutes.
