new Amazon listing suggests that the 1 TB model of the PlayStation 4 might finally be making it to North America.

The item was first spotted by a poster on NeoGAF. The online retailer has a limited-edition bundle on sale for $449.99. It includes Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and a PS4 sporting the larger hard drive, and is now available for pre-order. Amazon lists the release date for the bundle as Nov. 6, the same day as the game's launch.

Sony announced a 1 TB edition of the PS4 for the European market back in June. We were told then by a PlayStation representative that the company had nothing to announce regarding an American release.

An FCC filing preceding that announcement, however, suggested that the company did have plans to release the upgrade for American audiences. The filing showed that the larger model had been submitted for testing.

GameStop began selling PS4s featuring larger hard drives on its own in July. These refurbished, customized "Supercharged" consoles offer a 2 TB hard drive, even bigger than the official Sony bundles.

Since launch, the PlayStation 4 has been available in a 500 GB model to gamers in North America. The Xbox One, on the other hand, received its own 1 TB model in June. The hard drive included in the PS4, however, is swappable, so gamers have been able to upgrade their own consoles themselves since launch.

We've reached out to a U.S. PlayStation representative for comment about the company's plans for bringing over the 1 TB console, and will update this article with any response we receive.

Update: The 1 TB limited edition PlayStation 4 bundle featuring Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been confirmed. Sony shared the news on its official PlayStation Blog, and included a photo of the console. It features an orange and gray color scheme and Call of Duty-centric detailing, and it will be available on Nov. 6, as Amazon listed.
