"Star Wars" completists should get a thrill out of a Sony announcement made over the weekend.

The company unveiled two special-edition PlayStation 4 bundles that put some Sith on gaming consoles.

Both bundles feature the imposing profile of Darth Vader on the side, looking like he's ready to Force-choke your foes. A repeating "Star Wars" logo graces the top of the console.

The Limited Edition Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Bundle comes with a customized 500GB console, a Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition game and a voucher for downloading four classic Star Wars games. Those classic games are Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars Bounty Hunter. The announcement notes that this is the first time those games will be playable on PS4.

The second bundle is called the Limited Edition Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars PS4 Bundle and will be available as an exclusive at Walmart.

It includes the Darth Vader console, a copy of Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition (a game featuring a variety of characters from Disney and Pixar properties) and a set of figurines including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Boba Fett. The downloadable games are also a part of this package.

You can't have a Vader console without a Vader controller. A major attraction of the bundles is a suitably jet-black Dualshock 4 wireless controller inspired by Darth Vader's chest panel. The various buttons are done up in red and gray and will give you the opportunity to announce "I'm pushing Vader's buttons!" to your gaming buddies.

The bundles will be released on November 17, but pricing has not yet been announced. Preorders are starting soon so you might want to start saving up your Republic credits and work on finding a new home for your boring old, non-Sith PS4.
