This version comes as a tie-up between Sony and Disney under which the tech firm will release its 'Frozen' PlayStation 4 console on the same date as the Frozen movie's DVD and Blu-ray version in Japan - July 16.
Priced at JPY 42,980 (roughly Rs. 25,438), Sony's Frozen PlayStation 4 console comes with a golden snowflake design along with lead characters of the movie - Elsa and Anna - carved on the console's glossy area. The innards however remain the same as the regular version.
To recall, the Sony PS4 is powered by an integrated CPU-GPU design, featuring a 8-core low power x86-64 AMD "Jaguar" CPU, coupled with a 1.84 TFLOPS AMD Radeon GPU. It also features a secondary processor that does the network processing tasks in standby mode, in order to optimise power consumption.
The PS4 features 8GB of GDDR5 RAM for memory, coupled with a 500GB hard disk drive. Also onboard is a Blu-ray disc and DVD drive. Connectivity options include 2 USB 3.0 ports, one AUX port, an Ethernet port, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 (EDR), an HDMI out port, and an optical-out port.
It is worth noting that Sony is not new to creating such themed PlayStation consoles. More details for the 'Frozen' PlayStation 4 console can be found on the firm's Japanese website.
Last month, Sony unveiled new details regarding the game pre-loading featurethat came with the PlayStation 4 system software update v1.70. It was announced that Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark video game will the first to get the auto pre-load feature.
