Report: Sony will soon launch a FIFA 23 PS5 bundle with two Dual Sense controllers Sept 30th.

If this bundle is true, how much this matters will depend on the price of the bundle.

If the price has NOT changed in countries outside the US where Sony hoked the price of the PS5 around $50-$100, then the 2nd controller bundled with the console could potentially justify paying the new increased price. Because a Dual Sense controller itself is $60-$80 based on where you buy it and what region you are in. For those who buy Fifa and have a friend over or big gatherings, or want to have the game for an event, this would be no different than buying a standard PS5 and buying an extra controller. Only those who only one to play Fifa online, SP, or already have an extra controller wouldn't want it. Or those who don't want to buy Fifa.

However, if the cost for having this second controller bundled in and/or the Fifa 23 game, adds to the price, this may be the dumbest single bundle in the history of gaming and will surely be DOA.
Will this bundle be special edition?

Excuse me sir, I think you have been fed wrong information.

and will surely be DOA.
 

FIFA 23 bundles where selling out like crazy.
Pretty sure people were just in it for the console. They’ve been easily available in the UK and I could have bought one. Waiting for a god of war bundle though, no point buying it with a game I don’t want.

Thanks for the informative post but it looks like they are shipping the CFI 1115 model still on this bundle ?

I will never get rid of the ultimate PS5 CFI 1015 with its awesome heat sink .

But at least release the bundle with cfi 1200. Sheesh

Of course 2 controllers will increase the price. But people have been paying scalpers this price without a game or another controller. It's going to sell out day 1

CF 1200 model might be already in UK, some digital FIFA 23 bundles have the model number cfi-1216b

The extra controller is the deal breaker, because fuck your mates and/or having to wait for controller to charge when you can hot-swap.
I figured anyone posting here has two mandatory peripherals for every console. 1) Second controller. 2) Charging stand for controllers.

Right, but every PS5 is selling out anyway. You could bundle a 2006 badminton game with it and it would sell.

If there were consoles just sitting on the shelves, then I’d see your point.

The Fifa 2023 growth from last year's version is undoubtedly due to the November World Cup this year and will continue to sell well until after the big event.

Sony is smart to market the PS5 with FIFA, especially during World Cup. I expect the growth to be significant from FIFA 2022.
