Sony Considering PS4 and PSVita Bundle
SCEE president Jim Ryan has confirmed that Sony is currently considering offering a bundle which would contain both the PlayStation 4 and PSVita.
While talking to EDGE, Jim Ryan responded to a question regarding a rumour that the PS4 and PSVita would be bundled together by stating:
“Sure, I mean it’s the sort of thing we’re discussing. Now I’m not saying we’re going to do it, but one of the things I was pleased about yesterday is that we had the chance to really properly explain and demonstrate Remote Play. It was touched on at the New York event and it was touched upon at E3 but there was so much other stuff going on that it didn’t really get the time that I think it warranted. When I was crafting the script I made a real effort to carefully explain it with my little analogy of how it might all happen at home.”
“People have been intrigued by this, and there’s going to be a great deal of crossover between potential Vita owners and PS4 owners and we’re going to spent a lot of time reflecting on feedback. Clearly, finding ways for consumers to access both devices is a logical thing to do. Whether you put them together in a bundle, that’s one way of doing it – you might get a bit of a problem with the price, but there are a variety of ways and means to do that but it’s definitely something we’re talking about.”
This follows rumours from last month that Sony were planning on releasing a PS4 and PSVita bundle, which was thought to be in the region of $500. While at Gamescom, Fergal Gara also confirmed they were set to release official PS4 bundles.
