Sony Pushes PS Vita in Japan With New “Welcome Box”

on January 8, 2014 12:19 AM

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia just announced a new effort to enhance adoption of the PS Vita in Japan in the form of the Welcome Box, a new bundle designed to welcome new players in the world of Sony’s portable console.

The box includes a black PCH-2000 PS Vita, an 8 GB memory card, a travel pouch, a cloth, a strap, an AC Adapter, a power cord and an USB Cable. In addition to the hardware it’ll also come with quite a lot of demo software pre-installed.

  • God Eater 2 trial version
  • Soul Sacrifice Delta trial version
  • Terraria trial version
  • Joysound.TV Plus (free to play)
  • Dragon’s Dogma Quest (free to play)
  • Power Pro Stadium (free-to-play)
  • Music Unlimited

The package will cost 20,454 yen ($195), which is a rather good deal since the Vita by itself normally costs 18,995 yen. It will be released in limited quantities on March 6th.

There’s no word, for the moment, on similar deals for the western market.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
