PS Vita & PS3 Bundle Coming This Year – Sony

PS Vita & PS3 Bundle Coming This Year – Sony

Sony UK head Fergal Gara has hinted at a PS Vita and PS3 bundle coming before 2013, telling CVG it’s something that’d make complete sense, and the company would “have nothing against that whatsoever, and it’s not out of the question that we would do that this Christmas if we wanted to.”

Gara added:

We put together packages for retail, and there’s no reason why we shouldn’t create a ‘Vita plus PS3′ bundle, which could feature games that use cross-play, as well as include a PlayStation Plus subscription that both devices could use.

Gara reckoned the bundle would only highlight the two consoles’ seamless connectivity.

    PS3 Vita Bundle for 299$ that would fly off shelves like crazy. but knowing sony they’ll fins some way to scare off the consumer or the consumer wont know about it because of sony’s crappy advertisement.

    Agreed with you Ghost. I’d definitely go fora PS3/Vita bundle at $299. There’s no doubt about it.

    same here, a slim ps3 and a vita would do me great.

    Indeed. But I doubt Sony would make it affordable.

    again have to question is there really a market for it?
    as $ony said not so long ago, what was the percentage of people who own a vita also own a ps3?
    90%?
    most consumers out there already have one or the other, so the very small percentage that has neither, or would want both, is that really a large enough percentage to warrant such a bundle?
    this is just taking away from the available suply of seperate bundels, which coming into the holiday season start to run low as it is so im not so sure if now is the right time to do something like this.

    I think the bundle would be good enough that it would lure people in. Two for one… That’s what we have here.

    but thats exactly the problem, why would you buy this if you already had a ps3?
    if you needed to replace yours then ok, but what percentage of people need to replace their ps3?
    its not THAT unreliable!
    i just cant see the point in this.
    as $ony said recently most who have a vita already have a ps3, so the very few out there who dont have a vita, have a ps3, and am interested in a vita why would they buy this bundle over just a vita?
