PS3 and Vita Bundle is a Possibility

A PS3 and Vita bundle could be headed to retailers for the holiday season.

In an interview with CVG, Sony UK head Fergal Gara talked about the potential for a bundle that would show off the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita’s cross-play functionality.

“We’d have nothing against that whatsoever,” he said, “And it’s not out of the question that we would do that this Christmas if we wanted to.

“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.”

He then went on to discuss how the bundle would help illustrate the relationship between the two devices.

“There is really a story there of the two consoles building a partnership. ‘Better together’, as I say. If we want to continue to promote the partnership between PS3 and Vita, we have to look at ways in which we can show that.

“Is a dual-console bundle box a perfect solution to that? I’m not sure, but I think there’s scope to have deals where people buy both the Vita and PS3, along with cross-play games and get a discount.”

  • Keep it around $400 US with PSABR and a memory stick and I would think these would sell very well. People are going to argue that you can get the Wii-U for $350 and it has the tablet gaming, but you can’t take that tablet with you outside of house.

  • Perfect idea. Something I have been wanting them to do for a while now.

  • I think a bundle would sell really well. Especially if it includes a good cross play game like Madden or somehting. Even Hustle Kings.

    • It is good to not pay attention to the trolls. Just vote down and flag as needed.

  • I like the idea of a PS3-Vita bundle. Perhaps they could throw in some free games, and seal the deal. That would bring a lot of people over to the PlayStation world if they can offer the latest home console and latest portable console all in one package.
