PS3 and Vita could be bundled before Xmas

PS Vita and PS3 could be sold in a bundle deal before Christmas, that's according to Sony UK head Fergal Gara.

Speaking in an interview with CVG, Gara said when asked that there is a possibility that both consoles could be bundled together.

"We'd have nothing against that whatsoever, and it's not out of the question that we would do that this Christmas if we wanted to.

"We put together packages for retail," he added, "and there's no reason why we shouldn't create a 'Vita plus PS3' bundle, which could feature games that use cross-play, as well as include a PlayStation Plus subscription that both devices could use."

We've no idea how much a bundle such as this would cost, however it could be a good way for Sony to combat any threat from Nintendo's Wii U.

Think I'd rather have a Wii U.

If the price is right, this could work well. Be better if the Vita had a stronger library, however.

i would also be better and more worth while if more games supported remote play - SotC shows how well it works. otherwise i'm not personally seeing the point in the bundle at the moment.

£400ish Already own both ps3 and vita but the Wii U would make more sense as it is dedicated gamepad unlike the Vita also a lot cheaper.

The idea is a good one would help pick up the sales for the Vita if the big up the cross play feature but as others cant see it being really affordable.

If priced right I don't see why it wouldn't be a great idea. Would be good for people who want to get into the Sony side of gaming.

If this was priced right I would get one, I was planning on picking up a vita this holiday season and I'm tired of sharing the ps3 with the rest of the family so this would suit me nicely

I already own both, but there is no doubt Sony need to get more Vitas on the market to encourage 3rd party dev. A substantial price cut would work better though.
