Updated | The PlayStation 5 could soon come bundled with a 24-month PlayStation Plus Premium subscription
Update: 2023/06/20 12:15: The bundle in question is a part of a promotion offered by telecom provider O2, suggesting it might not be available to the general public in other regions, at least not until Sony decides to bundle it.
Sony, much like Microsoft, usually bundles its consoles with upcoming AAA titles, such as the recently discounted PlayStation 5 and God of War: Ragnarok edition. @Zuby_Tech over at Twitter has discovered an interesting new console bundle aimed at an entirely different audience altogether.
The PlayStation 5 will soon come with a two-year PlayStation Plus Premium subscription. This particular variant is for German markets, based on the packaging. Unfortunately, there is no word about how much it will cost. Some napkin math based on the current console and PS Plus Premium subscription prices suggests an MSRP of about €650 (US$709) before taxes.
While there is no information about when the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation Plus Premium bundle could be launched, a September/October window seems likely. It will give gamers an opportunity to try out Marvel's Spider-Man 2 at launch, although one may still have to buy it at full price after sampling it for two hours.
Starfield is scheduled to hit the platform on September 6. As Bethesda's first new IP in over twenty years, it will undoubtedly drive a lot of users towards Xbox Game Pass, and this could be Sony's way of offering an alternative.
