US Best Buy stores will be getting a PS4 + PS Vita system bundle for $559 next week. This bundle will include the Vita slim Borderlands 2 SKU with an 8GB memory card.
About Bloody Time!
10$ less? Make it even to 549$.
Great deal, if I didn't have a PS4 i'd get it
Whoa. Not a bad deal.
good deal to save $50 off the price of the Vita.
Xbox+kinect: $500 PS4+Vita: $559 Very big deal. I might be getting my second PS4 sooner than I expected. Also, if you add a game to the current $500 Xbox One, you could get a more powerful console and a handheld gaming device for the same price.
I personally think XB1+kinect+free game+Use Smart Glass with existing laptop/phone at $500 is a better deal than the $560 bundle as none of the portable playstation devices have ever had good software.
So, it's safe to say you've never owned a portable PlayStation device?
Just keep on trying. You're making someone proud somewhere.
No bubbles left. DAMN. Well you went out fighting. I wonder if trolls with one bubble sit and think of the ultimate thing to say before they comment and use their only bubble.
@JoGam Some trolls, maybe. But the special ones like truefan1, go from site to site trolling and can't be bothered to put great thought into their comments. I'm almost amazed they even have time for gaming.
@JoGam how dare you make fun of them...you don't even know...you don't even know the pain and agony they go through on each article only knowing they have one shot in the spot light. Gain some perspective, mate :P :P hahah
hahaha... @TrueFan1 that is actually a hilarious post... you list "Use Smart Glass" as a "+" I really appreciate your "loyalty", but damn you're grasping.
That is just wrong. lol
For $559, you get Ps4+vita/thinner/better battery life+Boarderlands 2, and extra D content, mem card, REMOTE PLAY any ps4 game from any wifi spot! and also you can Dload a ps4 app on a cellphone and access just like glass. I think there pushing the vita because of playstation now and the fact you have the whole ps4 library to stream to vita..so thats where the software will come in play..
Xbox Kinect: $500 Xbox Without Kinect: $400 PS4: $400 ($450 here in Canada) PS4: with Camera $450 ($500 CA) PS4 Vita: $559 PS4 + Camera + Vita: $609 Keep in mind PS Vita 32 GB proprietary memory cards are $70-$75 if you can't find them on sale. A fairer comparison.
A lot of ppl don't know this...because I didn't know that when I got my vita...u have to buy a memory card to play any game on the vita...and the memory cards are expensive...my 16 gb is 39.99
Not really, you can just trade some maple syrup in to the lower the price. We can't do that in America. So really: Xbox Kinect: $500 Xbox Without Kinect: $400 PS4: $450 ($399.99 with Maple Syrup Trade In) PS4: with Camera $500($450 MSTI) PS4 Vita: $500 (MSTI) PS4 + Camera + Vita: $509 (MSTI) Now it is a fairer comparison.
You don't need a card with the slim Vita... It comes with 1gb internal memory.
@SoapShoes Depends on what games you plan on playing, Killzone Mercenary for example needs a patch that's bigger then 1GB.
Great deal for my US people.
Should be 500
But then they'd lose like what, $100 on each bundle?
IMO it is worth it to move Vita sales, then once the thing is out their let the thing market itself then once it is in demand PSVita would fly off shelves. If not nobody would spend that cash on both anyways. The thing is the same price sold seperately and it quite obvious people do not want the Vita, so not many people are buying this bundle. Perhaps sales on the product during the holiday will be productive and push Vita sales.
When I say 500, I mean without Borderlands. And maybe a smaller Mem Stick. 500 just seems like a sweet spot IMO
Stop being cheap!
No it shouldn't.
They should also include a downloadable unicorn with each bundle that comes out of the screen to cheer the player when playing, which skin color changes depending on the player's mood.
Actually it's a good deal. If you buy Vita separately which is like $240 you're paying more. Plus you get a game and memory card. Sony could have sold the bundle for $600+ if they wanted to but they didn't.
im a cag and i agree with daniel. need to be $500.
daaaamn im buying, second ps4 confirmed bought lol *runs off to buy another 1.5tb harddrive
damn !!!!! I already bought my brothers Ps4 I wish this deal was in place earlier...... hmmmmm I might have to buy a Ps4 for someone else in my family we'll see
OLED or LCD? I've been waiting for awhile for this to happen. I will be highly disappointed if it's the latter.
one of the main reasons they made the vita have lcd screens is to lower to cost of production and make bundles like this.
Since you asked, I'm assuming you already knew that the new Vita has an LCD screen. I hope you didn't think they re-manufactured it with OLED just for this bundle?
Don't fear the LCD screen! It still looks DAMN good, and you get significantly better battery life! Plus, the new model can be charged with a standard microUSB cable. Well worth the trade off, IMHO.
Definitely the Vita 2000. LCD screen. Cheaper model.
Definitely buying this
How is this a deal?
Well... I guess for me to explain, you would first need to understand the basic principles of Mathematics.
That's a pretty awesome deal...
Amazing! You would literally be crazy to pass this up. Happy to see this bundle. It will definitely give the Vita a well deserved boost.
499.99 would have been a better price point. I understand that Sony can't just give these systems away but I'm not sure if 559.99 is a price point that's favorable for success.
$499.99 is just to low to start out with...they have to profit on this deal. Reason we have the LCD Vita now, brings the bundle below the $600 price point. It may start off slow at first, but this bundle will be a huge success during the holidays, and the kids will eat this up. And people already considering buying another PS4 because of it.
Yeah like I said, I understand WHY it's that price but I also understand the power of sticker shock. I'm just saying that I can't see people seeing "559.99" and biting. 499.99 just seems more manageable.
Sony is pushing Vita pretty hard now...great deal! You get 2 systems that's supported by 1 membership, and with so many games available with instant collection...you can start out playing games no problem with just purchasing PS+ and the bundle. It's great to see Sony not abandoning the PS Vita...very smart move using the remote play function with PS4. Pretty much every game has access to it now.
Nobody is going to buy that at the beginning of summer. Missed the boat on that last Christmas.
cool now just do a standalone 159$ vita and im in
Considering the slim is $199 with a $40 game and 8gb memory card I could see stand alone versions for that or $149.
Nah, offering a stand alone version may get some people to bite, but you'll then have people bitching about why it isn't $99.99. After they whine about that, they will then start whining about having to buy an "overpriced" memory card. You know, because they can't dload a huge free* library of games without a memory card.
Sony done did it again. I'll be damned. On a serious note. They should have had this at launch, it might have really helped advertise the PS Vita and pick up sales outside of Japan. This might be a little too late but hopefully maybe with PS Now and enough people wanting to use Remote Play, it may just actually do alright.
That's a great deal. PS4, Vita and PS Plus, you will have a lot of games to play.
Nice deal, Vita is awesome and remote play even better. They should promote it at E3.
While $559 seems like a good deal, don't forget the memory card prices on the Vita as well as the obligatory PS+. All of which will propel the entire cost above $600 and near $700 depending on the memory card purchased.
i have a gut feeling, that is not the only bundle coming How about PS4+ PSVita TV With a 8GB memory card and PS+ for 90 days for $499.00
