PS4 Slim with Horizon Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, Driveclub, and Three Months PS Plus Membership Now Available in India

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The latest PS4 Slim bundle costs Rs. 28,990
  • It comes with three highly rated games
  • Expect more bundles from Sony India in the months to come

The PS4 Slim has received yet another bundle for India. This time around Rs. 28,990 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.

PS4 Slim with Horizon Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, Driveclub, and Three Months PS Plus Membership Now Available in India

While the likes of Amazon India list the PS4 bundle for a May 31 release date, several offline retailers have confirmed with Gadgets 360 that it is available in stores right now.

Considering that Horizon Zero Dawn retails for Rs. 3,999, Ratchet and Clank is priced at Rs. 2,750 (finally making it officially in India after months of Sony deciding otherwise), and Driveclub at Rs. 1,999, this is a stellar bundle. That is before factoring in the Rs. 1,599 cost of a three month PS Plus subscription.

If you’re looking to get a PS4, this is the bundle to buy. You may want to act soon though. According to multiple sources at retail, this specific bundle will be short supply much like the previous PS4 Slim Horizon Zero Dawn Bundle.

Don’t expect it to be Sony’s last first-party bundle either. With Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Gran Turismo Sport, and God of War expected this year, we could see more to come from the company.
