Sony hardware marketing exec John Koller thinks such a bundle is an "interesting proposition," but it's not in the works right now.
That sucks i hoping for one too actually !
meh... it'll be a bundle by Christmas. They probably don't want to bundle it now due to the price issue. With the Vita slim being released, the price of the 'phat' Vita will start to drop. They'll probably want to bundle the 'phat' vita with a PS4 to lower the price of the bundle to make it competitive.
'shucks... there was a rumor, but its also possible that they dont want ppl to think one is comming soon so they sell 'em separately. a bundle would be a totally sick idea.
I don't want to believe this! Misdirection hopefully...
Not really sure it would sell all that well. What would they even price it at? $550? I mean yeah it would be cool to get both in the same box but Sony isn't in a position to lose much money right now so you wouldn't be saving a whole lot on the bundle. I just don't think the demand is really there for them to justify a bundle. I think right now it's fine the way it is. If you buy a PS4 and want a Vita, just go and buy a Vita, or wait till you find one on sale.
I'd buy one. I'm holding out on getting a PS4 till there are more games out, but PS4/Vita bundle would definitely entice me. I'd never buy a vita full price on it's own as I quite simply don't like it, but I'd gladly have one bundled with a PS4 for it's streaming capabilities.
My thoughts exactly.
Idiots. They'd rather see it fail completely, rather than take a bit of a loss on it, and make a bundle that would annihilate the competition. I was in GameStop yesterday, and a little boy, maybe 5-6 y.o., was playing on the WiiU kiosk, and was having a really hard time with the controller. His dad (who had just traded in TLOU...so he owns a PS3) finally says "C'mon, let's go...we're not getting one of those, the controller's too big and heavy for you." If Sony had PS4/Vita kiosks setup, with Knack running...or some kid-friendly Vita game...they're likely walking out of the store with a PS4/Vita bundle. This is the same kind of blind arrogance that put Sony behind the 8-Ball for most of last gen. SMH...
Come on Sony... People are wanting this, plus it will sell Vitas. These were sold out in the UK!
It would look too expensive to the consumer. Sony knows full well you don't want a $600+ on your price tag even if it is a good deal.
Why!? I don't have either and it'd be great to get both in the same box.
Why not just give the Vita a stronger identity with better marketing and more investing in original games for the system, instead of using PS4 remote play as a major selling point for it? Seriously, the Vita shouldn't need to be attached to a PS4 to make it sell. It's a damn good system on its own. A PS4/Vita bundle would be better further along in the PS4 life cycle anyway. The PS4 doesn't have any huge games right now, but Infamous: Second Son is coming soon. Give the PS4 some time to get its footing before complicating things with a bundle like this.
Gravity rush,Soul Sacrifice,TearAway,Ys:Cecleta, Freedom Wars ring a bell?
Those five games alone will not get the Vita into more homes, especially since four of those games are already released and haven't done much to change anything. There are amazing games on the Vita right now, but only the people who have a Vita already know that. Why? Because Sony hasn't been putting any kind of serious effort into showing this system off. I have no idea why Sony is neglecting this system. It's a great system and with so much good hardware that Sony should be able to convince other people to buy it no problem. But they're not. Ports, collections and tiny indie projects cannot carry the system much further. Sony needs to take this system seriously and stop letting it fend for itself like some neglectful parent.
With the PS4 sold out everywhere again. That's the worst decision you will ever make for the Vita Sony.
Sony!!!! You no like money?!
