ps4 and vita package ?

11 Replies 2,745 Views Created 04-05-2013

I for one might be intrested in buying a ps4 and vita together in a package (therefore cheaper).

Anyone else ? How much of a discount should we get ?,or maybe a free game ?

What I'd like to see, is a game that's on vita and ps4, on special offer. Buy the ps4 game, get the vita version half price, or something to tht effect.

There was actually a pretty lengthy discussion on this idea here:

 

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-4-General-Discussion/PS4-Premium-Package/td-p/187...

 

The issue with a bundle from Sony's side any way is that they are most likely losing money, or will be, on both the PS Vita and PS4. So a bundle deal isn't really going to save them any money. Especially if they have to offer a bigger discount and lose more money on each. From as shops perspective a boxed bundle would be a highly expensive item sitting on there shelves. Well actually two items. They might be better able to shift both if they were separate. Not too sure how big demand would be, and what sort of discount they'd have to offer to get the sort of demand you'd want. PErsonally I doubt it'd make economic or business sense.

I would be very insterested in buying this bundle, especially after heariing the price point for the PS4. I hope Sony is listening! It would so nice to remote play my PS4 games anywhere!

Re: ps4 and vita package ?

I had the vita at launch, loved it. Sold it after vita games prices were just too much. Same price as the ps3 games seemed crazy. Now ps4 remote play works...I'm interested again. That's why I got the wiiU...but I sold that coz it just isn't supported at all. Roll on ps4 Smiley Happy
How do I add a picture here??

Sold my Vita as well, but depending on the crossplay potential, I might pick up a new one... Throw it in a bundle with the PS4 with a game on each and 3 months of PS+, and I'll drop £500 on one Smiley Tongue

Re: ps4 and vita package ?

They are auctally loosing money right now making the consoles, they only make the money in long term, its the same with microsoft and nintendo, they always lose money during the next gen switch over. Also it makes sense if they do bundle them together the Vita will sell a lot more, and due to the poor sales of the Vita, they might do it. I  think in my personal option, that the Vita has bad sales is due to the fact, that people don't really need one or are not that intrested in it.
