Red Dead Redemption 2 - Arthur’s horse rearing up in the forest as the sun shines behind them Rockstar Studios/Rockstar Games

Sony is releasing a PlayStation 4 Pro bundle that includes Red Dead Redemption 2, just in case you’re excited about the upcoming Rockstar game but have yet to purchase a console on which to play it. Pre-orders for the bundle begin Monday, Sony announced in a PlayStation Blog post; they’re currently available at retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy.

The bundle includes a 1 TB PS4 Pro system, a DualShock 4 wireless controller and a physical disc copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 for $399.99, according to the announcement.

Sony’s relationship with Rockstar for Red Dead Redemption 2 seems pretty cozy; we already knew that PS4 players would be getting some form of exclusive content with the game. You could, in fact, still purchase this bundle and the $99.99 Collector’s Box edition of the game, since that package doesn’t come with a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 itself.

The hardware won’t have any cosmetic differences from the standard PlayStation 4 Pro; the main draw with this bundle is getting the game for free with the purchase of a regularly priced system. The last console Sony released that changed the hardware’s aesthetics to match a game launched alongside the most recent Spider-Man title.
