PS4 + PS Vita Bundle Revealed
Amazon lists unannounced "Ultimate Player Edition."
One of Sony's E3 2014 surprises may have just been spoiled. The often-leaky Amazon France has posted a product page (via IGN) for a special PlayStation 4/PlayStation Vita "Ultimate Player Edition" bundle. It's listed for €579, or about $790. According to the listing, it will go on sale July 4.
We were not able to find the same product page on Amazon's North American website. In Europe, the PS4 currently sells for €399.99 ($540) and the PlayStation Vita costs €179.99 ($245), meaning the bundle isn't offering much in the way of savings. However, it also could include some pack-in goodies, and we've reached out to Sony for comment. Sucker Punch's PS4-exclusive action game Infamous: Second Son is shown on the box.
Separately, Twitter user Wario64 has obtained a scan of next week's Best Buy advertisement, which shows a $560 PS4/PS Vita bundle that includes both systems and a copy of Borderlands 2 for PS Vita.
In February, PlayStation hardware marketing executive John Koller said Sony had "no firm plans" to offer a PS4/PS Vita bundle, though he admitted that "it's an interesting proposition."
Sony's E3 2014 press conference takes place Monday, June 9 starting at 6 p.m. PDT. GameSpot will host a livestream of the event, as well as video interview and analysis features immediately following the presentation.
