It Seems A PS3/Vita Bundle Could Be A Distinct Possibility
Remember when we said Sony might want to consider giving interested consumers a PS3/Vita bundle package?
Sometimes I think I've got ESP.
PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara was asked about the possibility of this very thing during a new CVG interview, and he said they have "nothing against" the idea and in fact, they could do it this holiday season if they chose. Said Gara:
"We'd have nothing against that whatsoever. 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.
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."
Gara adds that he isn't sure if this dual-console bundle is a good solution at this point in time, but it certainly has potential. With the cross-play feature and new Cross Buy option (buy the PS3 version of a game, get the Vita version free), it does sound like the perfect idea, though, doesn't it?
