(Update:) TM’s pre-order for the Star Wars BattleFront PS4 is now up over at their order page. If you didn’t manage to get the unit when it was first released by Sony last month, this is your last chance to get it. Though we did say TM Unifi subscribers, this special edition is only open to new and existing subscribers of the UNIFI Advance plan.
The purchase of the unit can be paid in full or via a 12 month, 0% interest plan at RM154.08 via MayBank EzyPay. All you have to do now is fill up the pre-order form, and you will receive and email within 3 working days if you are eligible for the unit.
Although the FAQ mentions that collection is set to Menara TM in Kuala Lumpur, you can still request to have collection and payment made to the TM Point near you, which would be a good thing, if you’re not based in the Klang Valley. Also, according to TM, once the Star Wars Battlefront PS4 has been sold out, TM will also be offering the regular PS4 for sale.
The Force has been relatively strong of late, with trailers, memorabilia, and even gaming consoles all paying homage to the world of Star Wars. Fittingly, our dear landline and internet provider, Telekom Malaysia now has a pre-order page for the Star Wars Battlefront PS4 bundle only for their customers. That said, if you weren’t one of the lucky few that picked up your unit on Sony Malaysia’s online store, since units are now sold out, here’s another chance.
Fans of the Battlefront series will finally have their hand at playing the reboot to the original from 2004. Rated an 8/10 from IGN, the game itself is considered to be a first-person/third-person shooter and you’ll be engulfed in the battle of the Rebel Alliance against the Imperial Fleet. Dart across the worlds of Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and Sullust with characters such as Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Leia Organa and Darth Vader.
Then again, you could easily pick up the game by itself and go on playing on your regular PS4 but that wouldn’t be as fun. Adding some great visuals on the 500GB console unit itself, with Vader himself being illustrated onto the front of the unit and one special DUALSHOCK 4 coloured in black, red and white to match the character.
Other than the regular cables, AC power head and a one-year warranty, the bundle also throws in four Star Wards Classics Voucher Cards that’ll give you access to exclusive games from yesteryears:
- Super Star Wars
- Star Wards Racer Revenge
- Star Wars Jedi Starfighter
- Star Wars Bounty Hunter
Oh and they also add a 12-month subscription for PlayStation Plus in the bundle as well as a 1 year extended warranty. Looks like there will be a lot of gaming happening towards the end of the year, what more with the holiday season coming around; this could definitely make a great gift for someone who loves the Star Wars series and gaming in general.
Do note that this pre-order is only open to new or existing UniFi Advance Plan customers and the pre-order system will only begin at 3 pm on the 1st of December. No pricing has been mentioned by TM but as a reference point, Sony Malaysia lists it at RM 1,849 (w/ GST).
