Sony Says PS3-Vita Bundle Possible
In an interview with CVG, PlayStation UK’s managing director Feral Gara said that a bundle featuring both a PS3 and PS Vita is certainly a possibility for Christmas.
“We’d have nothing against that whatsoever,” he acknowledged, “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.”
“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.”
With Nintendo coming out swinging this holiday season with the Wii U, it would probably behoove Sony to do something to get some traction for Christmas.
