Introducing the Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Pro Bundle

The highly anticipated sequel from Rockstar launches with a PS4 Pro bundle.

Mary Yee's Avatar Posted by Vice President, Marketing, SIE

Today, we’re excited to announce the Red Dead Redemption 2 PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle, launching alongside Rockstar’s highly anticipated game on October 26.

This bundle includes a 1TB Jet Black PS4 Pro system, a DualShock 4 wireless controller and Red Dead Redemption 2 on Blu-ray disc. This bundle will be available across the U.S. and Canada for $399.99 (MSRP) / $499.99 CAD (MSRP). Pre-orders start today.

On PS4 Pro, 4K HDR TV owners will benefit from enhanced graphics and optimized performance for a stunningly sharp and detailed look (when compared to a PS4 system), as you live, ride and fight to survive as an outlaw in a notorious gang. HD TV owners will benefit from increased image clarity through the PS4 Pro’s Supersampling Mode (you can turn on Supersampling Mode in the PS4 Pro system settings menu). Meanwhile, if your TV supports high-dynamic range (HDR), you’ll experience the picturesque scenery of Red Dead Redemption 2 with an even more vibrant and dynamic range of colors (HDR features also available on PS4 system).

If you have yet to experience everything the most advanced PlayStation system has to offer, Red Dead Redemption 2’s epic tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age provides a great opportunity to get a PS4 Pro. Be sure to check out the Red Dead Redemption 2 PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle, launching next month!

Lackluster bundle. Could have easily included a red ps4 pro or something.

    Agreed. I was going to Order another Ps4 pro and I was awaiting a custom style bundle announced for RDR2. Now I’m disappointed. No hurry for multiple consoles… “Kids, your still sharing. Daddy’s not getting his own console”.

    Totally agree. The Spider-Man PS4 was awesome and I was hoping for the same with Red Dead.

    Really aggravating that they did so many ps4 and ps4 slims with designs but the pro gets no love. It’s a poor investment in your top performing console Sony.

    It’s a great deal, but I wish it was a limited edition console. It’s a missed opportunity.

    Telepath said:

    At first I was a little surprised, but then I realized that that the “special edition” PS4 Pros I’ve seen (God of War, Spiderman) have been for PS4 exclusives, while bundles with 3rd party cross-platform games have all just included the standard black console. Am I right?

    Telepath said:

    September 24th, 3:15 pm

    Actually, now I remember that Star Wars Battlefront II had a limited edition PS4…..

No game pre order bonuses? Really? So I buy this and I get none of the specials I would get for pre ordering the game. Thanks but no thanks

Why does it look like there is a small piece of tape on top of the PS-logo on the console? It looks really weird

    somebignasty said:

    September 24th, 8:59 am

    That’s the light reflecting off it. The logo is glossy and reflective.

Well, skins will be on demand now.

Looks like a decent game

You really missed the chance to release a LIMITED edition PS4 PRO!!!

KSPRAYDAD said:

September 24th, 3:47 pm

In Europe, according to the EU blog, there is a non PRO bundle…. no such offer in NA?

Chaosmusicindust said:

September 24th, 4:16 pm

This is very boring set.

Jay_Jon said:

September 24th, 4:36 pm

Theres no PS4 Pros in stock anywhere! Can you give me a release date on the PS4 Pro Slim? thanks gang!

jramon04 said:

September 24th, 4:51 pm

Totally agree

stongejay said:

September 24th, 5:30 pm

Really wish they would put a little extra effort on the exclusive consoles like custom case lighting god of war PS4 would have been epic with blue led runes through the axe. Would have paid a little more then normal for that

cubansandwich88 said:

Yup

The bundle is decent for basically getting RDR 2 for free. On the other hand, the Spider-man Pro LE bundle was the same price with a custom design and controller as well as the deluxe edition of Spider-man.

There’s no time like the present (er, when RDR 2 bundle comes out) to upgrade to PS4 Pro. If you really want to get the most out of your Pro, swap out the system drive for a Samsung 1 TB 860 EVO SSD. Even though the Pro can’t make full use of its speed, the speed boost is impressive. 1 TB is hardly enough space, so for external, likewise go for speed. Pair a WD Black 4 TB 7200 RPM 256 MB Cache HDD with an external HDD case and your external storage will be fast. Avoid hybrid drives as they are not reliable on the whole. Keep your games that have frequent or long load times on the SSD and your less demanding titles on the external. The downside is that these upgrades cost almost as much as the Pro. However, if you go for the fast external and avoid the SSD, you are paying the same price or maybe even lower when comparing that to a prepackaged 4 TB external HDD, almost all of which are slower than the WD I recommend.

It would have been nice to see a new color and style dedicated to the game, but regardless they will still. All I get asked at GameStop is when will we get more PS4 pros.

NellyNell1988 said:

September 24th, 9:21 pm

I would like to see more designs

TOOMB said:

September 24th, 10:05 pm

Will this be available at Target? I’ve got like $100 in gift cards I want to use!

Good luck buying this! I have trying to buy a PS4 Pro in the US since this summer and NO ONE ever has it in stock. Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Gamestop online or in store I have tried and tried and tried. I just do not understand how 2 years after launch Sony cannot provide stock. I have given up and will just stick with my regular PS4.

    Hot_Cuppa_Joe said:

    September 25th, 10:22 am

    Amazon has the pre-order open. Like you, I’ve been trying to upgrade since summer – missed the Spiderman pre-order, and just haven’t been able to find anyone with stock. So I’m in for one on this, even if the bundle is a bit….boring.

Hot_Cuppa_Joe said:

September 25th, 10:19 am

Lackluster at best, but considering the massive shortage of available PS4 Pro units, I pre-ordered. The game is a nice bonus, but I just want to upgrade to the Pro…and no one has them in my area for under $500, not even Amazon (and those are from 3rd party sellers). Since I missed the cool Spiderman one, if I want to upgrade, this will have to do.

Could have been cooler, though.

Looks amazing!

Phantom_Traveler said:

September 25th, 9:26 pm

Looks like a great game and I’m not into giant spider skins anyhow, so I’m in! I wonder how long the pre-orders will be available? There was almost no stock of PS4 Pros this past summer, at least at list price in the USA. They were supposedly blaming it on a worldwide shortage of ceramic chip capacitors.

I’m dreaming of a white PS4 pro.

Wow they missed the opportunity here I’ve been waiting on a custom red dead ps4 pro. It’s only gonna be the biggest selling game. Smh. Hopefully fallout will have a custom ps4 pro design

Good timing; was going to buy these two anyway – and honestly would rather have a black console than red, much as it would have fit.

What’s the exact release date? Is it the 26th same as RDR2?

Alanon said:

October 5th, 8:51 am

Does anyone know if you get the pre-order bonus content if you get the bundle?

The Gamestop near me is doing a 9pm release for RDR2 pre-orders. I pre-ordered the RDR2 PS4 Pro Bundle. I was wondering if anybody has tried picking-up a game/console bundle at a midnight or 9pm release before? Is it treated the same as if I pre-ordered the game by-it-self?

When I asked the Gamestop employee they told me they weren’t sure. Haha!

Any experiences would be helpful!

Thanks!

yoursp1n said:

I should mention that I did pre-order the bundle in-store at that location.
