New PlayStation Vita Bundle Includes PlayStation Plus Subscription

Posted on Thursday, November 29 @ 10:07:49 Eastern by Keri_Honea


'Tis the season for handheld bundles...

The PlayStation blog announced such a bundle for the PlayStation Vita, called the PS Plus Instant Game Collection PS Vita Bundle (good God, that's a mouthful), which proudly promotes the fact that the PlayStation Plus program is now on the Vita. The bundle includes a Vita with both Wi-FI and 3G capabilities, a one-year membership to PlayStation Plus, a voucher to download Unit 13, and a 4GB memory card, all for $299.99. If you price everything individually, it's really not a bad deal.

That is, it's not a bad deal until you start doing the math, and I don't mean the financial math.

Giving the one-year subscription instantly opens access to the current Instant Game Collection featured for the Vita, and if you want to take advantage of this feature, you'll need at least 10GB of space to download them all. However, the bundle only gives you a 4GB memory card.

Obviously, they're banking on consumers not wanting every single game available, but if you purchase this bundle solely for the free subscription to PS+, your card will fill up rather quickly when other games rotate into the Instant Game Collection.

Insert sad trombone here.
