They hype of Final Fantasy XV finally got to me. Sure we’ve playtested this much-anticipated game a full week before its commercial release yesterday and, sure, we’ve heard about the various marketing and merchandising effort of the franchise from cars to audio peripherals, and we’ve even oogled at the luxuriously-looking PS4 Slim FFXV Luna Edition at Tokyo Game Show but that didn’t really warrant that I pick the unit up considering I already had a working PS4. I mean, why would I, right? That’s crazy, right? Right? 🙁

:( It's not you, it's me.

So what pushed me to the brink of my (admittedly short) emotional temperament?

Well….I mean, just look at it!

My only complaint is this part. I mean, they could’ve just made this black to create that overall luxe quality (not a rejected album cover of *NSYNC).

 

Inside the box. Beautifully designed PS4 and controller, game and various DLCS.

Aside from the 1 TB upgrade (I owned a 500G PS4 Unit), this limited special edition of the PS4 Slim comes with a beautifully finished top – think lacquered boxes—adorned with gold-etched Final Fantasy XV text logo and the names of the four main protagonist.

There's also this tidbit, too. :)

The controller also sports a roman numeral 15 “XV” on the right handle just to add to the overall theme.

Your PlayStation 4 Theme will be reborn shiny and chrome (oh wait, different franchise).

FFXV music swirls around and abound while going through my display menu.

The Unit comes with the Standard Game with 2 DLCS – the Day 1 Masamune and a Random drop one. But more than that, this limited ed unit also comes with its own PS4 Theme –and a digital copy of FFXV a King’s Tale – a side-scroller bash ‘em-up starring King Regis and his cohorts.

 

The PlayStation 4 Final Fantasy XV Luna Edition bundle is extremely limited (the Datablitz where I bought this only had 2 units at hand) but it’s also the most cost-efficient bundle of a PS4 Slim currently in the market. At Php 21,495 (some stores, like Datablitz, gives a 1000-peso discount if you purchase in cash), you effectively save roughly Php 500 versus buying a 1 TB PS4 Slim and the Standard Edition of the game. So for 500 pesos more you get a normal PS4 Slim (without the additional DLCS, and the uber luxe design) and a base game. THINK ABOUT IT! If you’re ever in the market for a new PlayStation 4 and wanted to play the latest addition to the Final Fantasy franchise then you best make way to the various gaming shops to see if you can score this sweet, sweet unit.

Yeah...I also got the Deluxe Steel Case with the Yoshitaka Amano art. STOP JUDGING ME! :(
