A New Spider-Man 2 PS5 Bundle Is Coming [Aussie Update]

Sony is preparing to sell a Spider-Man 2 PlayStation 5 bundle that will include a digital download for the game, presumably at a discount, as it ramps up plans to try and sell a record-breaking 25 million consoles this year. The company is already giving away free copies of older games to some pre-selected players who activate a new PS5 in the next few weeks.

Editor’s note: After speaking with PlayStation AU comms yesterday, there is currently no confirmation that this bundle will make its way to Australia or New Zealand. If/when it does, we’ll let you know. For now, the existing Limited Edition Spider-Man 2 console remains your best bet for a Spidey bundle. — David.

The new Spider-Man 2 PS5 bundle was teased in an October 2 tweet. Sony confirmed to Kotaku it will be $US560, the same as last year’s God of War Ragnarök PS5 bundle, saving new owners $US10. The Spider-Man 2 version ships on October 20 alongside the launch of the game. Pre-orders aren’t yet live.

The sequel to the 2018 action adventure by Insomniac Games, Spider-Man 2 sees Peter Parker and Miles Morales team up together, complimenting one another’s abilities and trading off on the fly as they take on the hunter Kraven and the alien symbiote Venom. It’s one of the only first-party blockbusters that is a PS5 exclusive so far this console generation.

Sony revealed its intention to sell 25 million new PS5s this fiscal year back in April, telling investors in August it was prepared to take the “necessary measures” to make that happen. So far, that’s included discounting the old God of War Ragnarök bundle by an additional $US50, and even giving away free downloads for critically acclaimed games like Horizon Forbidden West and The Last of Us Part 1. This “upgrade” promotion runs until 3:00 a.m. ET on October 21, but only applies to pre-selected PSN users.

The new bundle is seperate from the special edition console that includes red and black face plates for the PS5. That went for $US600 and is already sold out. Fortunately, Sony won’t be running out of Spider-Man 2 codes when it comes to the regular bundle.

Update 10/2/2023 5:05 p.m. ET: Sony confirmed the price in an email.

Update 10/3/2023 3:44 p.m. ET: Sony updated the language on the “upgrader” program page to make clear that its current promotion for free PS5 games for new PS5 owners only applies to pre-selected players. The above story has been amended in the first and fourth paragraphs to make that clear.
