Destiny: The Taken King gets its own gorgeous PS4 bundle

Destiny publisher Activision is teaming up with Sony once again for a limited-edition PlayStation 4 bundle, this time for the upcoming expansion The Taken King, Sony announced today.

The PS4 from the original Destiny bundle last fall came in a solid "glacier white" color. This time around, the top/right side of the console is imprinted with Destiny's map of the cosmos in gray and the Guardian seal in gold. The unit includes a 500 GB hard drive, and comes with a matching white controller.

Also included in the bundle is a physical copy of the Legendary Edition of The Taken King, which costs $59.99 on its own. The package consists of The Taken King — $39.99 by itself — along with Destiny and its first two expansions. The PS4 bundle also comes with a token for an upgrade to the digital Collector's Edition of The Taken King.

The Collector's Edition, which regularly costs $79.99, offers three exotic class items with XP bonuses; three class-specific emotes; three armor shaders; and the early access weapons pack. That exclusive content has proved controversial, since Activision initially wasn't offering the items outside of the Collector's Edition. Now the content will be available on its own, but for a whopping $20.

As usual, The Taken King also offers exclusive content on PlayStation 3 and PS4. Those items will remain exclusive to PlayStation until at least fall 2016.

Sony did not announce a price for the Taken King PS4 bundle, but said the package will be out Sept. 15, the same day as the expansion itself. We've reached out to Sony to ask about the price and the controller, and will update this article with any information we receive.

Update: A Sony representative told Polygon that the company isn't confirming a price for this bundle yet. The spokesperson also said the controller was mistakenly flipped in the image; the post has been updated with a corrected version, and we've edited our article accordingly.
