Sony Said to Be Prepping Ultimate PS4/PS Vita Bundle for UK

Sony's PS4 costs £349 in the United Kingdom if you're just buying the console by itself. If you're willing to spend a bit more money, you can get the console bundled with various different games. However, it seems Sony may soon offer an ultimate bundle that packs the PS4 with … another console.

MCV reports that Sony might soon bundle the PS Vita in with the PS4. The site says this 'Ultimate Bundle' will launch in the United Kingdom in time for Christmas, though it's not clear how much the company will charge for this package.

Videogamer has posted the picture you see above, which will apparently appear in MCV's print magazine and dates the bundle for a December release. The magazine is due out this week, so we'll find out soon enough. No word on whether or not this bundle will be available outside the UK, but we'll keep you posted.

The PS4 launches this coming Friday, November 29, in the United Kingdom and Australia. The UAE and Saudi Arabia will follow on December 13, with Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia getting the console on December 17, 18, 19, and 20, respectively. The PS4 console packs an eight-core 64-bit x86 Jaguar CPU from AMD; a GPU with a unified array of 18 compute units, collectively capable of generating 1.84 Teraflops of processing power; 8 GB of RAM; 802.11n WiFi; Bluetooth 2.1; USB 3.0; and an upgradeable 500 GB hard drive.

    I think this is a good idea for Sony, as long as they price it right. With the PS4 and Vita working well together, why not sell them as a bundle? Sony actually needs to do better bundles. Microsoft is good about doing limited edition bundles and other things that really make you feel like you're getting something unique and special. I'd like to see Sony step up in that department. I don't have a Vita but I doubt it "sucks so bad". Mobile gaming is just such a huge departure from what it used to be. Everyone has a smart phone these days that acts as a mobile game console. Vita, however, gives you that little bit extra as far as games, better graphics, and with integration into the PS4, I think it's a nice option.
