Oh no! My friends convinced me I was crazy for believing that something like this might happen, so I bought a PS4 the last time I visited Japan. At least this means I don't have to make the difficult choice between the two designs since I already have my own custom Masamune PS4 covered in stickers...

I really like the way they've combined the classic Tsuchibayashi Makoto artwork with the dragon painting from Sengoku Basara 4. An appropriate anniversary design.

    1. Hahaha, I'm not sure I can afford to spend that much on a second PS4. It's so tempting though :D

  2. Hi! Thanks again for the news! Is Sony Japan just for local people or for foreigners too? I would really like to buy it, but when it comes to giving the address, it seems to be for japanese people only. It's so beautiful, I want it!!

    1. It's just for local people, unfortunately. A forwarding service or deputy company should be able to help out if you want to place an order and don't mind paying some additional fees. If you do manage to get one, please take lots of pictures!

  3. Most likelyI'll end up not buying it (I already own a PS4 but I can swear it makes me wish for another one) I'm genuinely pleased they went with Tsuchibayashi-san's artwork. Very very pleased ^_^. I'd wish him to come back designing for the series.

    1. It's weird having so little Tsuchibayashi artwork in the series these days. I'd love to see him interpreting the Sengoku Basara 4 characters in his style at the very least; I bet he'd come up with some very interesting perspectives. It can't be too hard to get him back for some paintings even if he's too busy or expensive for creating actual designs, right Capcom?

I'm really sorry that I had to switch on authentication for comments. The blog had started to receive dozens of spam comments each week. I hope that this new setting will help!
