Death Stranding is proving to be Sony PlayStation’s biggest exclusive game of 2019, and it is no surprise seeing as how Hideo Kojima himself is the man behind this whole project. So, it also comes at no surprise that Sony will be releasing a limited-edition PlayStation 4 Pro based on the game.
The console will come in a white chassis, with a pair of inky black handprints that seems to be a running theme in Kojima’s upcoming game. The star of the limited edition console, however, is the DualShock 4 controller which is designed to look like a BB pod. You know, the disturbing baby carrier that Norman Reedus carries around throughout the game, the one that he sings to whilst in a hot spring.
It has the same translucent yellow look as the pods in-game though sadly (or not), it does not come with any floating babies on the inside of the controller. As Sony puts it, you will be able to “gently rock the controller to emulate holding the BB pod in your own hands”. We guess you can sing to it too if you are ever inclined to.
Kojima has stated multiple times that Death Stranding will be a brand new type of game, which he calls ‘strand gameplay’. With instances such as Norman Reedus punching the player in the face for staring at his crotch for too long, or even a super-easy gameplay mode that is made up of almost entirely cutscenes. It is no wonder that this quirkiness is extended to the game’s limited edition console too.
Those who purchase the Death Stranding limited edition PS4 Pro will receive the following:
- A custom 1TB HBB PlayStation 4 Pro.
- A DualShock 4 Controller in the same translucent yellow as the BB pods in-game.
- A Blu-ray disc of Death Stranding standard edition.
- Downloadable content such as themes, music albums, PSN avatars, and more.
The console will be retailing at S$599 and will be available from November 8, 2019.
