Sony Says A PS4/Vita Bundle Is An "Interesting Proposition"

Sony just revealed that the slimmer, lighter Vita 2000 model is coming to the US this spring.

This has prompted a logical question from gamers: Will we also see a PS4/Vita bundle at some point? Well, although Sony doesn't rule out the possibility, they're not currently planning to release such a package.

PlayStation hardware marketing boss John Koller told GameSpot that he'd "certainly look at it" and it's "an interesting proposition." However, there are "no firm plans" to release a PS4/Vita bundle right now. He added the following:

"I like the idea personally of being able to put them together if not as a bundle but as a marketed experience point. So Vita we think fits very, very well as a companion device for the PS4. But, I stop there because I want to make sure Vita retains the beauty of what makes Vita Vita. And that's that it's got it's own unique kind of bespoke games."

Maybe it's better to wait until the Vita has a more expanded library, so gamers will be more interested in owning the device. It really needs a healthy helping of exclusive software (not just games that can be played on other platforms), and that Remote Play feature also needs a bit of a boost. In the meantime, let's just hope the Vita 2000 can generate a sales spike.

I believe it would be far too expensive of a bundle to justify putting it out there. I don't see most people being able to afford both at once.

Sony needs to eat the loss and sell a PS4/Vita bundle for $500. They will easily make up the money in game sales. Doesn't the Vita have like a 10 game attach rate? Make it semi-limited and watch the demand skyrocket.

Sony isn't in the business of selling things at a loss anymore. What happened with the PS3 has left them a bit too traumatized to do it again this gen. I'm not saying its a bad idea. I'm saying financially, where Sony stands right now, it would be a disaster for them. Sony as a whole, not just the SCE division.

This is one of those things that's *guaranteed* to happen, the only question is when.
