Sony Says that a Vita/PS3 Bundle is a Possibility for Christmas 2012
-Eric Lee Lewis
The PS Vita hasn’t exactly sold huge numbers. In fact, the Vita isn’t doing very well. On a good note, we do have some bundles hitting us within the upcoming months.
The head of Sony UK, Fergal Gara, said in an interview with CVG that thanks to cross-play, it makes sense to bundle the Vita and the PS3.
In Gara’s own words:
“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.”
“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.”
Here’s wishful thinking!
