Sony Computer Entertainment Europe launches new Glacier White PlayStation®4 to celebrate the launch of 2014’s most anticipated game, Destiny™

Auckland, 9th September 2014: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today celebrates the arrival of a brand new version of the PlayStation®4 (PS4™) in captivating Glacier White, hand-in-hand with Bungie’s bold new epic action thriller Destiny. The Glacier White PS4™ & Destiny bundle will be available from 9th September in New Zealand.

PS4 has sold more than 10 million units worldwide – and more than 30 million PS4 games have been purchased by The Players – since its launch less than ten months ago. This incredible milestone reinforces PS4’s record-breaking pace and the position it holds as the best place to play. The release of the Glacier White PS4 bundled with Destiny gives even more choice for new Players who want to join the next generation of gaming.

In Destiny, from the creators of Halo and the company that brought you Call of Duty®, you are a Guardian of the last city on Earth. You are able to wield incredible power and explore the ancient ruins of our solar system; from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus, players are invited to defeat Earth’s enemies, reclaim all that has been lost, and become legend.

The Glacier White PS4 with Destiny brings all the outstanding existing features of the console alongside some gameplay additions only available to those who purchase the bundle – including special edition missions, new maps and a larger selection of weapons and ammunition.
As the build up to Christmas continues, now is the perfect time to embark on a journey to join the millions of Players experiencing next-gen on PS4. The brand new Glacier White PS4 bundled with Destiny provides an opportune moment to join the Players for the ultimate gaming experience.
