Sony isn't skipping Black Friday. The company today announced its plans for the unofficial start to the holiday shopping season, which includes markdowns on select PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 bundles.

Gamers in the market for PS Vita can pick up the Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, and Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified bundles for $200 on Black Friday. These normally retail for $250.

Amazon and GameStop will be the exclusive carriers of the Assassin's Creed III: Liberation bundle, while gamers in the market for the Black Ops Declassified bundle will need to shop at Best Buy. Lastly, the Lego Batman 2 PS Vita pack will be available only at Target.

On the console side, Sony will introduce a PS3 Value Bundle on Black Friday for $200 at retailers across the country. This offering includes a 250GB system, a 30-day PlayStation Plus trial membership, the Uncharted Dual Pack (Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2), and the Infamous Collection (Infamous 1 and Infamous 2). Sony claims this represents savings of $120.

In addition, select retailers will carry Dualshock 3 wireless PS3 controllers on Black Friday for $40, a markdown of $15 from the normal $55 going rate.

Great idea. But I'm afraid the mobile gaming mark has taken a big chunk out of handle gaming market. I mean for the about the price of a vita you could pick up a tablet device and have access to large amounts of apps. I'm getting a vita, for sure, but i think the handheld market is drying up these days.

Highly tempted by the white PS Vita sale. Although I'm not really interested in the ACL game, the white unit looks sweet and the memory card is enough to get me started. Even if the PS Vita gets a price drop next year, the white unit is still worth a slight "premium" over the black to me, so there's probably not a lot to loose in purchasing the bundle on sale this year.

If the Vita sells well enough on Black Friday, will it be enough to wake Sony up to what they need to do sooner rather than later? Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and admit you're wrong. Nintendo admitted it with the 3DS, and they never looked back after the price drop.

@Shango4 Get the AC3 Liberation bundle. The PS Vita looks better in white and the game is far superior to Black Ops Declassified. Declassified is also only an hour long!

Only price cut people will probably be seeing until next Black Friday rolls around. Well, not a price cut, just a sale. Price cut sounds like it assumes it's a permanent change and it's not.

There is no doubt that there will be a price drop for the Vita but we are at a point where it may not help. The Vita is tarnished with mediocre and bad games. Sony can't wait to the next E3 to address the failures of the Vita. The biggest problem is third party support. Companies like Activision and EA has no reason to put their best developers to make games for the Vita. As for Activision they need to answer in why they allowed a horrible developer Nihilistic to make a Call Of Duty game and taking a hands off approach. As for Sony they need to follow Nintendo's footsteps and create an Ambassador Program for early adopters and have free PS2 games to download.

@snake63 dude, i am pretty sure many companies are making exclusive titles for the vita. call of duty, even though i HATE IT is a side story which fits black ops and black ops 2. assassins creed is also a side story. they are built from the ground up and shows companies are interested in developing for the console. why the hate?

@mrzero1982pt2 @snake63 Because a great deal of people go by what the media says and don't do research themselves.

Funny enough if you enjoyed a lot of the psp's library the Vita's current and future library is actually spot on.

@snake63 There is plenty of good games for it.

RO(Ragnarok O)

AC3 Liberation

Uncharted

P4 The Golden

Warrior Lair(on the way)

Soul Sacrifice(on the way)

Gravity Daze

Little Big Planet(better than the consoles ones odd enough)

Virtue's Last Reward

All the console games of course that are ported.Hold up well and honestly quite a few play alongside your ps3 community

PSP games you can play with a second analog stick,bilinear filtering, better color and touch support if you wish.They hold up extremely well and feel far better to play on the Vita.

Sound shapes

Hot Shots Golf

Wipeout

PS All Stars Battle Royal(by ps3 version get Vita version for free)

I didnt mention others , i only mentioned ones in my taste.But there is plenty of games to enjoy.

And many are on the way.

You have to remember that Vita sales are within their expectations which it isn't a failure.So many people miss that.

I think I'm going to shell out for the White Vita @ $200. That's a good looking system, and down the line we all know the vita will be a killer portable to own for a few reasons. It's also likely the last of its kind.

Ugh glad I bought a slim last summer rather than this ugly cheap and overpriced super slim... I'm happy their lowering they're prices a little down though but I really think it's not enough, it shouldn't be limited to Black Friday. Sell the system for 150 $ no silly bundle!

Pretty good deals all around.

I'm just not a fan of the new generation PS3, so cheaply made.

@Pete5506 Thats one big difference I noticed between Sony and Microsoft, Sony has made their systems cheaper, but also shittier, taking out backwards compatibility, memory reader, etc. Yet Microsoft has been making the 360 cheaper AND better, the new models look slick, have wifi, touch sensitivity, etc (which the original 360s didn't)

@dreamfist11 @Pete5506 Maybe becasue PS3 lost so much money att the begining and are losing so much money now Sony is cutting and cutting

Sony is trying to make money this season. IMO Sony game consoles were always cheaply made.

I kind of wish they would just turn the Vita into a 'HD remakes of last gen games' console. At least then I would be happy.
