While there isn’t a Frozen game for PS4, the Disney movie is getting a PlayStation 4 package with a laser etched Frozen hard drive cover.

 

The limited edition Frozen PlayStation 4 will retail for 42,980 yen and comes out on July 16. This PS4 package includes a 500 GB console, a DualShock 4 controller, and the Frozen themed hard drive cover. A copy of Frozen on Blu-Ray is *not* included.

    If only they had made it ice blue. I’d be throwing off so much want waves.

    I’m not even joking, there. I really liked Frozen and I like ice-themed stuff.

    • Pyrotek85

      Yeah don’t you miss the colored translucent N64s, and the Play it Loud series for Gameboy? The hardware looked a lot more fun.

      • Shady Shariest

        Even the transparent pink GameBoy Advance beats this… “Limited Edition” :P

        • Lumi

          What, you got something against transparent pink? XD

      • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

        Shoot, yeah. The only translucent system I ever got to own was the Kirby Pink GBA (mainly cause my first white GBA got stolen from me). I always regret never being able to own one of those N64s.

        • Shady Shariest

          Pink- Brofist!

          • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

            Kirby Pink GBA owners, unite!

      • Nan

        i’d throw down so much money for a see-through ps4

    • Valtiel Ikari

      just… let it go!

  • Shady Shariest

    Oh. They just… Added a sticker… That’s…Nice… I guess…

    • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

      I think it’s funnier that they have a Japanese logo for Frozen, but they used the English one for the PS4 itself.

      • Adrian Duran

        I hope it comes to the US

        • Shady Shariest

          This is literally nothing to spend money on. It’s just a PS4 with a sticker on it. And some quickly photoshopped promo-material on the box.

          • Adrian Duran

            well it costs the same as a normal PS4, but looks cooler (pun intended) so why not?

          • Shady Shariest

            Because you can get a package with a game for that price :3

          • Colonel Custard

            ya but can your package game come with a limited edition Frozen theme

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            I could get the Yakuza theme instead. Or Final Fantasy XIV one. There are MANY better options.

      • darke

        Because English is ‘cool’ to Japanese, the English logo is ‘cooler’.

        • Romored

          And the term “frozen” conveys the exact sense of “coolness” needed.

  • 하세요

    For the first time in forever~
    I actually want a PS4~
    But then I checked inside my wallet~
    And realized that I’m pooooooooooooor~

  • 古戸ヱリカ

    Nope, no way, no how. Writing the word “frozen” on a game console is just tempting fate.

  • evilkaz

    Cant wait for frozen 2, so that everyone can get tired of the franchise and move on already. Why the hell was it so popular in japan of all places?

    • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

      Everything Disney is big in Japan; they like animation a lot.

  • Slickyslacker

    Frozen confirmed for KH III.

    …I mean, come on, there’s been so much teasing already.

    • Jadfish

      You know, up until this post I hadn’t even thought about the Disney part of KHIII, only the square part – and this makes me super excited.
      ….would it be too far fetched to have Star Wars and Marvel stuff in it?

      • ishyg

        I’ve already pictured a lightkeyblade in my mind, although I can’t draw so yeah.

      • Slickyslacker

        B-but I seriously don’t want Star Wars or Marvel :/

        and I’d be completely fine with Frozen, despite being the only person alive that has never seen nor heard any of the film.

          I want it if only to hear an official rendition of this.

        • Shady Shariest

          I don’t think it’s going to happen :V
          Frozen is too new! We don’t know how fast it will die away!

    • Daniel Rossevelt

      frozen is evil, it better not be in kh3

  • Jadfish

    I just realized that I could customize that hard drive cover… Like, I could probably buy a couple of them somewhere and then experiment with them in the workshop.

    Why didn’t I think about this back when I changed the HDD to a 1TB?

    • Mr_SP

      Why don’t they actually sell spare HDD covers?

  • Bob Slim

    Its funny Japan gets a frozen ps4 and NA dont. What does that say

    • Shady Shariest

      They didn’t wan’t to spend too much money on stickers?

      • Lumi

        Because only the Japanese will shell out money for a new console instead of just buying a cheap sticker?

        • Shady Shariest

          Because there is still hype for that movie in Japan?

          • Lumi

            And they hope that help them sell more ps4s?

          • Shady Shariest

            Well. Not like this. Who would buy a console package without anything worthwhile?

          • Lumi

            A self claimed Frozen fanatic friend has already declared his desire to purchase this despite it being a lot more expensive than it has any right to be.

          • Shady Shariest

            Eh. Al tough… Dumb people throwing money at obsolete things is what keeps the market going, i guess.

          • http://momentsreprieve.com/index/ Aushria

            It topped the box office in Japan for several months after it began showing in threaters, the Japanese iTunes’ store has most of Frozen’s albums at the top of their top 100.

            So… saying it’s merely hype is a gross understatement. As they seem to be infatuated with the movie as a whole.

  • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

    What kind of idiot designs a Frozen PS4 and doesn’t make it white or icy blue?
    And LOL at the movie not even being included. They literally spent half an afternoon on this.

    • Mr_SP

      Going to have to wait for the white PS4 release for that, I guess.

    • Black Heaven

      They did the glacier white on the Destiny PS4, why not in Frozen? :(

      While they’re at it, throw in a Frozen-themed controller too.

  • Nan

    hahaha, what??

  • Shippoyasha

    I wish they go full out with the colorization and putting decal on the whole, not just that shiny plastic part. I’m getting numb to a lot of official limited editions when 3rd party console mods are doing some impressive stuff these past 4 or 5 years.

  • Lazulis

    At least make the lines white or blue if it’s not going to be on a white PS4…

  • http://youtube.com/kuyamagix iKen

    Just the harddrive cover case gets a make-over? Really now….

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    i hope frozen won’t be in KH3

    • Byron Kerrison II

      SOME foreshadowing, huh…

    • JMaster3000

      I bet its gonna.

    • Kornelious

      That would be AWESOME!………..(Ahem) I mean, that would be going overboard…..

    • Wtv

      Why the hell no? Of course it will be.

      And Star Wars too. Deal with it.

    • ShadowDivz

      Calling it now.

  • Namuro

    Wha…? Okay…

    Hooray for the Frozen fans, whoo…

  • Xmas Lopez

    Whoa, was Frozen really THAT popular in Japan to warrant its own PS4? I mean, I know it was/is super popular in general but this is the first time I’ve heard of a movie themed console. It’s usually just video games that get their own editions and even then they usually have the game packed in. They are really banking on people loving Frozen enough to buy the PS4 alone (no movie).

    • Shady Shariest

      Well. It kinda makes sense. If the movie was crazy popular… Who DOESN’T have the blu-ray.

      • Kornelious

        I have the Collectors Edition!……(Ahem) I mean, it’s not THAT popular…..

    • Luigi87

      It is indeed very popular in Japan. It became the third or second most grossing (can’t remember which) animated film in Japanese theatres, beating out several classic Studio Ghibli movies even, including Princess Mononoke.

      • Snorlaxation

        Holy shit really?? That’s definitely a scale to use for popularity (no sarcasm). That honestly really surprises me. I still haven’t seen the movie (not intentionally), and have only heard parts of one song (not Let it Go).

        • Max

          It’s a result of the millions Disney spent on marketing, ad space and campaigns.
          They shove this thing on your face everywhere, there’s even a free DLC song on the new Taiko 3DS game that I just realized is from the movie too.

          • Snorlaxation

            I guess good marketing can do wonders. (look at what bad marketing can do (psychonauts for one))
            Still, I’ve always loved ice themed things (worlds, spells, characters), and Kristen Bell. Idina isn’t a bad draw either, saw her in If/Then.

            Still, those and ONE GOOD TRAILER cuz most of them sucked, would be the only reason for me to wanna see it. The story of the Snow Queen (which I first heard about through Persona 1 for SMT) is pretty cool in its own right though.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    That is ugly (but then again, so is the movie). This was the perfect opportunity to use the Glacier White PS4.

  • Christopher C

    No, just NO

  • Anihilator

    Japanese people on the hype-train board huh? If they get a blu-ray of Frozen, then why not get a PS4 Frozen themed. I know they like that weird stuff))) Lets boost PS4 sales!

  • Anihilator

  • tturtlejosh

    This is stupid why not just release the stickers .-.

  • SuperSailorV

    For the first time in forever,
    I’m getting what I’m dreaming of!

    Bad joke. I really like Frozen (unlike a lot of angry people here, which really surprised me), but this was way out of left field for me. Wish I didn’t already have a PS4, though!

  • Spirit Macardi

    More hype for Frozen?

    I wish they’d just let it go *rimshot*

    • Snorlaxation

      That was good.

      • Linhua

        … agreed.

  • Jahmere Durham

    Ughhh

  • Kornelious

    NO WAY! I want that in the U.S!……..(Ahem) I mean, that’s a weird choice for a PS4……

  • ShadowDivz

    Wait… in japan and not the US?
    …The origin of the movie?
    …..How does this make sense?

    I can see Mommy-likes-to-spend-but-never-research buying this for Suzie-mommy-i-saw-it-on-tv-and-now-i-want-it.

  • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

    what in the ever loving fuck is this baloney?

    Japan only….not US…..well this is interesting to say the least.
