PlayStation 4 Gets Colorful Packaging With Knack In Japan

By Spencer . October 7, 2013 . 1:33am

Sony revealed the package art for the PlayStation 4 in Japan and Knack is right on the cover. Why? The PlayStation 4 First Limited Pack includes a download code for Knack along with a 500GB console, DualShock4 controller, and a one year extended warranty for 38,980 yen ($401). A camera bundle  with a PS4 and Knack will also be available at launch.

That’s roughly the same as the launch price in North America, but Japan has to wait three extra months for the system. In addition to Knack, Dynasty Warriors 8 with Xtreme Legends, Natural Doctrine, and Yakuza: Restoration are some of the Japanese developed PS4 launch titles.

    I don’t really like any of those designs. In my eyes they look like someone just pasted a picture on a power point template.

  • Tom

    I like the one without Knack. That’s plain and simple enough and reminds me of the PS2 packaging.

  • Unlimax

    I miss the old Cases where you can see behind it a small little icons shows some of the upcoming games ….. Oh and Demo Discs D;
    Anyway .. cool looking Case ~

  • evilmajikman

    I still remember when consoles launched with a free game. Like how NES had SMB and Genesis had Sonic 2. Would’ve been nice if they at least had Flower pre-loaded.

  • Alright! Knack! I can’t wait to play Knack! Also, HAPPY OPPOSITE DAY!!

    • yellowmage

      Yeah, Knack does look like complete crap.

      …It’s still Opposite Day, right?

        I am totally a not a turnip.

        • Pdugna

          and iam not a Banana :D

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Those both suck. I thought Sony believed in good design.

    • Ferrick

      beauty is in the eye of the beholder

      • Skeptika Crediblus

        It is? AAAAAAHHHH!

  • dahuuuundge

    If I get a PS4 I’ll buy Yakuza Restoration for sure. But because it’s on PS3 also, the game is not a system mover for me.

  • They’re both alright, nothing extra special in my opinion. I care about what’s inside the box most of all lol =P

  • Shady Shariest

    Looks quite nice :3

  • yellowmage

    I’m somewhat surprised that there’s no Knack bundle in the West, seeing as the game is Sony’s big first-party launch title.

    I mean, I know that Killzone was chosen because it’s an FPS which is the predominant genre over here, but it’d be nice to have Knack as an option. We’re not all hollow-skulled, tea-bagging frag-heads, you know!

      They didn’t release any bundles in North America. Just a lot of retailers had “soft-bundles” to increase their profit margins on the hardware.

      Edit: I am aware of the Euro Killzone bundle though.

      • yellowmage

        Yeah, and it turns out Killzone isn’t the only bundle we got; there’s also a Knack bundle! So I guess I’m gonna have to retroactively dope-slap myself!

  • tubers

    Needs moe skin and voice dlc then to be used as packaging art for Japan.

  • TalesLaw

    Looks great

  • Cursingcomet

    Dangan ronpa 1&2 and getsuei academy is enough to occupy me for 3 months.
