    I liked Frozen really, but now this? Ugh.

    • surakian

      It’s a good thing you aren’t this PS4’s target audience and Japan is wildly in love with Frozen, more so than America.

      • icup ✔️

        the rest of the world is in love with frozen too.

      • Tetsu

        Yeah, I have a produce market in my town here in America. They sell, you know, food and we have Frozen Yo-Yos, Balloons, T-shirts, Bubbles, Dolls. It’s pretty blown-up.

    • Karysonson

      Is a special edition console really that bad?

  • Zackasaur


    I mean, it’s cool. Just super unusual.

  • KingNigma

    This movie is really popular.

  • Invisbin

    My god they are about to move consoles with this bs alone…and that’s genius. GG Sony.

  • icup ✔️

    amazing and it’s not even game related. sony should release “anime/manga” limited edition consoles too.

  • AdamBoy64

    Interesting how it doesn’t come with anything extra.
    Just a different hard-drive bay cover.

  • Jin Kisaragi

    This makes no sense.

  • The Grim Heaper


    • shogunknight

      You know, that makes a lot of sense

  • Six

    That looks terrible.

  • TreizeX

    Man how popular is this movie
    Still didn’t watch it

    • Zackasaur

      It’s huge everywhere… The highest grossing animated film of all time.

      It has been ranking #1 in Japanese box offices literally for months. lol

  • bloodiOS

    Looks shit! Seriously, at least make it a white PS4 and use blue contours…

    • ayb_91

      Lol. That’s exactly my point.

  • new_tradition

    Google says the regular PS4 costs 39980 yen. So this Frozen decal version costs 3000 more yen (roughly 30 dollars). Truthfully, I don’t see that extra value presented here…

    I actually still haven’t seen the movie. It sounds dumb, but seeing people going so crazy over it was a big turn off >.>

    • bloodiOS

      You should watch it, it contains bestiality, incest, NTR, yuri, you know, all the good stuffs xP

      Seriously though, I thought it was an enjoyable experience. I won’t rank it among the best Disney movies I’ve seen but it’s still pretty good.

      • new_tradition


        Sasuga, Disney-sama~

  • rainelee

    That’s cute.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Why won’t they put the design on the entire PS4? I mean this doesn’t look all that great…

    • bloodiOS

      Well, because it’s much cheaper this way (sucks, I know -__-)

      • Bobby Jennings

        Yeah….then they charge us like $50 extra..

  • 罪罰

    what the hell lol

  • LeBronista

    I think it will look better on white PS4 instead on black..

    • Just Tim

      Then again, Sony might had made more black units than white ones, which explains why Sony purposely did that on the black units.

  • James Reilly

    Sony is taking advantage of the Frozen hype in Japan right now lol. It looks weird though they should have made the illustration cover the whole area.

    • Duo Maxwell

      Should have been white, though.

  • Santashi

    I can see this selling like hot cakes. Frozen would sell just about anything over here.

  • Tetris

    Is it normal for movies to cost $40 there? That’s crazy! D:

    • kiri25

      Yea, unlike in NA where movies/games have a rather set price in Japan popularity determines the price. For example a NIS game might sell $80 while F inal Fantasy on the other hand will sell for 90 to 100.

      Anime blu-ray/dvd is even worse its usually just 2 episodes ranging from 50-70 bucks, tho they do usually come with some nice extra stuff, but still 2 episodes for a 25 episode anime adds up

    • Elle

      The normal price of a pop artist cd over there is 30+ for the CD only version.

  • BizarreJelly

    I liked Frozen, but it’s far crossed the line of overrated. I don’t think it’s quite worthy of the overwhelming praise it gets. Oh and the PS4 is pretty lazy – was a golden opportunity for a nice crystal blue console.

  • Varnes

    Why…just why? on a side note it’s not really that good looking

    • DrForbidden

      They gotta corner the little girl market somehow…

  • desponent

    And of course again with the half-assed cheap looking “laser etched” cover.

  • Learii

    I want a blue ps4 other then this

  • Elvick

    If Sony was smart, they’d release this everywhere.

    I don’t think the design is that great, would make more sense on a white system.

    Oh well. This stuff keeps putting me off watching the damn movie. It’s in my bluray player just sitting there. I just use Netflix/Crackle/Crunchyroll instead.

  • Kuro-Law

    Im guessing they didn’t want full white cause of the destiny bundle but still there was no stopping a crystal blue.

  • Budgiecat

    this just blows
    this just blows
    Japan doesn’t know what to do anymore
    to them’s a bore
    so etch on it two Disney whores
    they don’t care
    What you’re going to say
    Let the storm rage on,
    They don’t have any games to play anyway!

  • Blaz

    That’s really ugly.

    Why the hell do people like frozen so much? It’s boring and predictable as hell.

    • Anime10121

      Probably because not every one in the world shares your opinion…

      I always wander why people tend to question something’s popularity. The world is made of people with differing opinions, if it wasn’t it’d be quite boring.

      • Budgiecat

        yeah but then there’s twilight and Bieber

        • Anime10121

          Well folks are into weird shit… doesnt make it necessarily wrong…just weird. Though honestly, I think those two are more because folks find the stars hawt more than actually liking them and what they do…

          That being said, I dont care much for Bieber personally, but the kid can dance, so there’s at least that…

          • Budgiecat

            He wasn’t made popular because he can dance.
            A choreographer taught him after he got famous…
            Anyways….objectively, people who like them simply have bad know, like how some people like to eat other people’s poop…

            some people are just fucked up in this world. Nothing you can do..

            Anyways, this a pretty shameless and shallow and desperate tactic by Sony. Not even game related…and doesn’t even come with the movie or Disney Infinity.
            Oh well…

            • Anime10121

              True, he did make it big off a Youtube singing video… :/

              But yeah I pretty much agree with the rest, still aint necessarily wrong for folks to be into it, not my thing, but I wont throw salt in they game :P

              • Budgiecat

                Well they’re not harming anyone by liking him….just giving him way more credit (and $) than he deserves, which maintains him in the public eye and limelight so I have to see his stupid face everywhere in my opinion, their opinion sucks :P

                • Anime10121

                  And thats cool (and an opinion that I too share), but at the least you’re not trying to force your opinion as a defined fact and can recognize that other folks just may like something you’re not into :P

    • Barrit

      Really? I thought it was really good, plus I was hoping Elsa would turn evil.. but nope :(

  • Zancrow

    No one is safe from this movie!

  • Articuno76

    That shiny part of the system was covering the HDD? Hmm. Didn’t know that.


    this sucks! where is my NOCTISxSTELLA CONSOLE???? i prefer that… FROZEN SUCKS in everysense

    • bloodiOS

      It makes no sense to release themed console of a game that won’t even be released this generation ;P

  • taj1994

    Over $40 for a copy of Frozen?

    • DrForbidden

      You’re not familiar with the BD and DVD market in Japan, I take it. That’s pretty cheap by comparison. Many new-release movie BDs launch with SRP of over 5000 yen.

      • taj1994

        Good thing I don’t live in Japan then, because that’s a ridiculous price

        • DrForbidden

          Yup, it is. I sometimes import DVDs, BDs, and CDs from Japan, and I have to be wary and picky about my purchases, because they’re just so expensive.
