This sounds like a good idea.

I agree and I am shocked they haven't hinted at this sooner. I know it isn't the same as the Wii U but Sony could take some of the spotlight away from Nintendo this Christmas with a bundle of the PS3 and Vita. Just having is there is still competition

add the 3D tv with the bundle im in.

It would much better with something that would work on both.

So, Playstation All Stars Battle Royale. The PS3 version gives you the PSV version for free.

So something like that could work well with a PS3/ PSV bundle.

I think ps4/vita bundle + gaikai to bring AAA ps4 games to vita on the go would be something wiiU cannot do next gen.

But then again price.

Maybe they can create some nostalgia and sell the combo for $599 US dollars, because that would be one expensive combo pack.

The main thing is, what would be the main selling point? There aren't any games on PS3 that require you to use the Vita as a controller.

It's a good idea for Sony, but there is a good way and bad way to do this. If Sony does something stupid like only shave 10 dollars off the total of both systems' current value, it will fail.

If they can include games with remote play like LBP2 and the GoW collection, they can probably sell the systems at a profit. With just the core systems though, that would be too expensive.

This sounds awesome, and is definitely necessary to combat the WiiU. I think that just the PS3 + Vita combo will do, just to keep the price down and all.

Either way, I can't wait to hear the inevitable "I don't care if it comes with an HD 3D TV, a PS3, and a PS Vita. I want it to be below $300!"

Just wait till black Friday. I'm sure some retailers are gonna make unofficial bundles/ deals.

Can someone tell me what the big deal is with Black Friday (like for instance why shops have massive discounts). Here in the UK we have the after christmas sales which I understand the reasoning behind it (to not make a lul in shopping after christmas and in clothing terms get rid of "last seasons" stock and bring in the "new" spring stuff (reason for having summer sale as well). But then it is still mainly clothes and not electronical stuff
