After months of speculation, Sony has announced that it will be selling PlayStation 4+Vita Bundles for $500, starting tonight.
Most stores won’t currently be able to sell the bundle due to the limited stock of PlayStation 4s, but Sony is encouraging retailers to include both consoles in a single package. At the moment there isn’t an official bundle, but buying both consoles together will save you roughly £10.
The main idea of the bundle isn’t so much to save costs, but to give players access to the PlayStation 4’s Remote Play feature. The updated streaming technology was a big part of Sony’s decision to create the bundle.
Our stimulus to do that is mainly the fact that once we got our hands on Remote Play we thought, wow, it really is real and good, and that deserves a shout,” he said. “And of course it’s a PlayStation point of difference.
We think, for four hundred and something pounds you’re getting two consoles, if you get PlayStation Plus with that then you’ve got an Instant Game Collection for both. So now they’re both great companion devices and they’re standalone devices. Why wouldn’t we underline that and highlight that point of difference? We really believe in it.
