    Stop putting game names on otherwise good merch


    Sony is selling a limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro bundle in honor of The Last of Us Part II’s upcoming release. The $399.99 package includes a console engraved with a replica of Ellie’s tattoo design, matching controller, copy of the game, and a code for digital themes.

    The themed PS4 and its accompanying items — like the Death Stranding, God of War, and so many other bundles — is a beautiful design kneecapped by a bizarre choice to slap the name of the thing it’s representing everywhere. It doesn’t have to be like this! Remember the Spider-Man PS4 Pro? Microsoft’s glow-in-the-dark Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 console? Nintendo’s adorable Animal Crossing Switch?
