An image of the PS4 & PS Vita Ultimate Edition Bundle, has been discovered in this week's issue of MCV, confirming a December release. Sony has yet to confirm a price.
O.O fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuu lol, oh well i can hope the vita tv comes out next year for us
I highly recommend this bundle, PS4 with PS Vita remote play has been a glorious experience. It's really amazing how well Killzone: Shadow Fall looks and plays through the Vita
How do they substitute the L3 and R3 buttons on the vita? If this bundle is only $500, that's a steal.
@cochise One game I played used the select button as a modifier for R2 L2. For the stick presses maybe they could use the touch screen in the back?
@cochise_313 Yes, you can programme each side of the rear touchpad as R2 and L2, works well with PS1/PS2 games.
@cochise_313 It'll depends on the Developer, I think Ubisoft uses rear touchpad and left-right corners of front touch for AC4. http://stevivor.com/2013/11... Killzone Shadow Fall does it differently, from the YouTube videos of remote play i've seen. They use the top left-right and bottom left-right of the rear touchpad. The games are configured to detect if you're playing on DS4 or PSVita. When you pop-up controller view/settings, it should display accordingly.
Vita have enough space to put a L2 and a R2 buttons.. and the analogs could have the click button L3/R3.. But I think it works well with the back touch screen
This is encouraging. I wasn't too optimistic about the remote play functionality but am looking forward to trying it out friday week!
i think its a good move, ive been wanting them to do this, 550 for the LCD (if they bring it to the states) and 600 for the 3g. if they decide to do two (which they should) because two options/prices will sell more than one, but bring out the 3g first to see how well it will actually do.
As somebody new to Playstation this gen (next week), what on earth is an R3 and L3 button? I think R1/2 and L1/2 are the bumpers and triggers so what's the three?
$500 or bust. How amazing would it be to have a bundle of both a dedicated handheld AND game console that saved you over $100 at $500? It would make the value of another certain console release seem terrible by comparison and boost Vita sales.
@toddybad L3 and r3 are the joysticks when you click them down.
@cohise_313 They use either touchscreen or touch pad. On PS1 games, you can do both. 4 corners of the touchscreen for custom buttons as well as the right and left middle portion of the rear touch pad.
I'm getting this bundle if it's not limited. The Vita is $200 and the PS4 is $400. They're going to try and sell it for $499, this is TOO much of a steal, and I most likely won't pass this up.
the back buttons are the l3 and r3. i tell you right now, sony really did have a plan for vita and its starting to show now. remote play is bad ass. playing shadowfall on the go...theres nothing like it. as for this bundle, whoever does not have a vita but are in the market for the ps4. this is your call. you will not regret this decision.
OMG, this is pouring it on. WOW, I'd was hopeful the rumor would turn out to be true. It would turn PSvita around big time. This reminds me. Before the reveal it was still rumored that Microsoft and Sony may have a answer for the Wiiu tablet. Looks like Microsoft's answer is you go buy something. And Sony will have a real answer (but optional). The vita, especially with the software that will be available genkie? Or something like that. I can't wait. This is Sony being very aggressive. In the past consoles would make a artificial shortage(even the wii). This may be a actual long term unintended shortage. Keep it up Sony, for the final blow restart the Jrpgs, and other famous eastern games that are only available on your console. I'm NOT mocking xbox one but Sony....FINISH HIM!
man wtf....why couldnt this be a launch bundle
Would've been nice as a launch edition.
Looks fake, but if true the WiiU is dead instantly once this comes out.
not really, 300$ vs 500$.
Looks like it includes the PS4, Vita and a memory card (8GB?). I really hope this drives the Vita sales, it deserves it.
Which PS Vita version btw? I don't expect the 3G version though.
Most important it's OLED PS Vita! Best bundle evah! If only Killzone : SF is inside...
I'd be very surprised if it's 3G, Sony wants to make this as affordable as possible and the feature won't make a difference to remote play anyway. It's also pretty difficult to tell whether it's the old or new Vita, as far as I know the latter hasn't been announced for Europe but it could be announced at the same time as this bundle.
@imt558 Imagine Killzone SF & Mercenary!
If the price is right, I'll almost certainly pick this bundle up. I think it's a great idea personally.
$550 would make it the bundle a great money saver.any less would just be icing on the cake.
There is a heap of great PR to be had if they price it the same as the XB1. And they can afford to, they will basically be selling the vita at cost but it will really help drive adoption.
Well, if it is around $500 I'll probably be the proud owner of a second Vita.
it's happening ..
Game over ;)
This was a next-gen match waiting to happen all along~ "Sony has previously described the device as a 'PS4 in your pocket'." Yay, Remote Play!! Now throw in a year's subscription PS+ and a fair-sized memory card (32GB at least). I'll be set for life~ :D
And its damn close. Remote play looks and works amazingly well. Much better than I ever thought it would.
If it's somewhere between $500-550, it's going to break the internet.
550 makes sense as the vita is at 200 or 250? Either way you still save. And if they throw in a 4 gig memory card or higher that's a bonus.
If they are willing to sell that for under $500 its gunna be insane.
I said a couple months ago if they released a vita bundle for the same price as an Xbone, console war over. I mean how could you ignore that value?
UPDATE: "An image of the bundle, pictured above, has been discovered in this week's issue of MCV, confirming a December release. Sony has yet to confirm a price" best christmas gift
PLEASE tell me that's with the new 2k model of the Vita. I will snatch it up asap if so.
Why do you want a worse screen? The old Vita is nicer in my opinion.
I may be in the minority but I prefer the less vibrant colours & the higher possibility of burn-in kills it for me, plus I like the design of the new Vita much more. That's just me though. As an aside, it's a shame they couldn't use the added memory differently.
Well, this is very personal. The LCD is better with deep blacks and whites, good for for photorealistic games (Uncharted, Killzone) The OLED is better for vibrant colours (Rayman, Ragnarok), but paints whites with a bluish colour.
Oh wow. Please be true! I already have a PS4 but I still need to get a Vita. My little sister wants a PS4 and doesn't care for the Vita, so this would be the perfect gift ;)
They had my curiosity... They now have my attention!
If thats the sloth from metal gear games GJ
Be cool if they priced it at 499$ Nexus 7 2013
A nexus 7 agrees.
Damn. I hate this. I wish they'd just announce this from the start with a price and have it available at launch. Now I'm wondering if I should hold off next week cos I would so buy this if it saved you a significant amount of money. If it doesn't then there's no point waiting.
Yes Yes Yes, for once it paid off waiting to buy my console :D
Saved from what?, It has been doing good and has a great library of games (even from launch)
Saved from 10-20k sales a week in NA... PS4 is in high demand right now, if they shipped a million of these bundles every single one of them would sell
I couldn't say this better
So say that instead of that negative BS "Vita saved???". If you dont get what I mean, dont even bother answering! Tired of this "Vita saved" BS
Xbox One + Kinect = $500 PS4 + PS Vita (+ memory card) = $500 I give Sony the win here. A Vita is definitely a lot more useful than a Kinect. Plus it doubles as an extra controller.
You forgot something. And the Vita is a portable console with some fantastic games like Tearaway for example. Cross buy is amazing isnt it? Nexus 7 2013
I'm just talking about what you physically get. One gives you a console plus a camera accessory. The other gives you a console plus a portable console. Add in $50 for PS+ and add in the value of the all the free games and you have an even bigger value when compared with adding the cost of Live Gold.
Sony should really throw the eye in there also and price it all at $550 with a 2 year psn contract and then get started on announcing some arcade action games with these movie games. This move and the wiiu onslaught mean ms is out of luck, unless they are my next cable box, otherwise titanfall will keep my pc warm. Ps4 and wiiu could be a winning combo for a gamer this gen. come on sony you know you want to do this!
$500 USD is rumored. It would actually be over that.
Damn great bundle. Id buy another if they bring a vita tv bundled with the ps4 for $499. Id buy it in a heart beat & give that ps4 to my lil brother & keep my vita tv.
I think the Vita has 'struggled' up until now because it didn't have a strong enough identity on its own. Now the PS4 has landed, it becomes a more complete experience as they were built to complement and in conjunction with one another. Now we're seeing a more complete PlayStation ecosystem - along with xperia smartphone and later, the Vita TV. I love my Vita and cannot wait for the 29th to come.
I get my Xperia z1 next month :) having that and this bundle will be perfect.
If this bundle is only $500; Xbone is in for a long ride.
I think it will be more like a short stay.
It will definitely force their hand. They would have to release a kinectless xbone to even remotely compete.
I'm betting we see that or a price cut by march
Nope bathy the cable companies are going to make this our next cable box I believe, which is a way bigger market, which includes hotels, motels, holiday inns! It really does seem like every thing that could go wrong with this xbone has... we all know ms is a freaking money zobie though... so they are here to stay. I mean if they thur in a free surface pro 2 with the purchase of the xbone I would think about it, for the suv maybe... nope not really. I hate crap that breaks!
Goodbye Wii U lol
