Recently bought: PS4 Batman Arkham Knight bundle (Amazon Prime Day)

Hello,  it’s been a while since my last post. Work and family matters didn’t leave me much time to work on a new post. But with the many recent events like the passing of Satoru Iwata or the latest Shenmue 3 teaser,  I’ll try to write something down.

With that said, I was swallowed like many online shoppers by the Amazon Prime Day (or Premium Day,  depending on where you live). Like many,  I was let down by the offers. We were promised something bigger than Black Friday, yet that wasn’t really the case.

If you want a good laugh, go on Twitter and look for the hashtag #PrimeDay.

Nonetheless, there were some nice deals. Not the greatest,  but great enough to interest many shoppers. I made 4 or 5 orders, and one of those was a PS4 bundle. Yes, I finally made the jump to the current generation of video game consoles!

Amazon_PS4_Bundle_Arkham KnightEver since the launch of 8th gen consoles, I wasn’t able to find something that made me want to move from my Xbox 360. But after this year’s E3 and all the good stuff that came out of it, I was clearly looking for a good offer. Now, developers are developing exclusively for 8th gen consoles and PC and are little by little abandoning the 7th gen consoles.

Initially,  I was struggling to resist buying and wait for the Christmas season to get a nice bundle,  like the Fallout 4 bundle. Luckily, Amazon came and put online just for yesterday a Batman Arkham Knight bundle. Not the one with the limited edition steel grey PS4. I just couldn’t resist this enticing offer and there it went in my shopping cart.

This bundle contains:

  • A PS4: jet black color with a 500 Go hard-drive
  • A Batman Arkham Knight video game
  • A second controller
  • 6 months of free Playstation Plus
  • A Blu-ray combo of the Nolan Batman trilogy (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises)
  • A free issue #0 of the Batman Arkham Knight comics

All this for €399 with free shipping thanks to my Amazon Prime membership.

Yet, I still can’t unbox this little sweet present I bought to myself due to kind of long days at the office and shipping services still being a bit stiff on delivery hours. I’ll just have to wait and pick it up on saturday (sigh)…Shadow of Mordor_PS4_CoverTESO_PS4_Cover

But that wasn’t the only nice deal I made on Amazon: I also bought a copy of Shadow of Mordor and a copy of the Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, both with a 40% discount. Again, can’t wait for saturday to try them.

Well, I’ll just keep on playing Injustice: Gods Among Us’ story mode until the weekend!

So, what did you think of Amazon’s Prime Day? Did you buy anything?

  1. I bought a similar bundle on Prime Day but yours was way better. It came with the black PS4, Batman Arkham Knight, The Last of Us Remastered and 3 months of PS+ for about $508 CAD or 360 Euros. I wish I got a second controller with it. But you were right after E3 and all the new PS4 exclusives I was seeing it was time to jump ship to the new generation. Great article hope you have fun with the new console.

  2. Thanks for leaving a comment.

    Too bad Amazon had so many specific bundles per region. I was a bit frustrated that you could see what other countries had but that you couldn’t buy it because of shipping restrictions.

    Your bundle is pretty cool, too. If I lived in Canada, I would have bought the same thing. The Last of Us Remastered is something I really want to play, so I’ll definitely grab it later.

  4. Great article! I thought Prime Day was kind of a bust too. I did get a computer case for the gaming PC I’m building so that was nice. I’ve been trying to convince a friend to get a PS4 recently, wish he had seen this bundle! Hope you’re enjoying the new system and games. Shadow of Mordor is so much fun. I got a free copy of Arkham Knight for the PC when I got my video card. I’m hoping that by the time I finish building my PC they’ll have it patched. Keep up the great work!

  5. Thank you for the comment!

    Well, even if people were pissed by or laughing at some of the Prime Day’s assortment, Amazon still managed to beat their record sales (Black Friday 2014) by +18%. So yeah… in the end, people still got hooked by some of the deals.

    Concerning the PS4 bundle, I bought mine from Amazon France, and as it seems, countries where Prime Day took place did not have access to the same PS4 bundle.
    I’m glad I found such a nice bundle, especially with a game I really wanted to play.

    This will make waiting for Fallout 4 less painful :-D!
