PS4 connectivity features will boost PS Vita sales, says GameStop

GameStop boss Tony Bartel has said that the PlayStation 4’s ability to connect with PlayStation Vita will have a positive impact on the handheld’s overall sales.
Sony announced at the PlayStation Meeting that its next-generation home console will share a strong relationship with its portable cousin, allowing gamers to use the PS Vita as a second screen.
“With multi-screen gaming continuing to rise in popularity, I think you’ll see more gamers purchase a Vita to take advantage of the enhanced gameplay offered by PS4,” Bartel told Forbes.
Unsurprisingly, the GameStop executive also backed the notion of a PS Vita price cut:
“We’re always happy to see a price cut! Both bundles and price cuts tend to spur additional sales, so this would make sense leading up to launch," he said.
PS4 will be released in holiday 2013, though it remains unknown if this pertains to a worldwide launch or limited to specific regions.
Bartel confirmed during the same interview that GameStop will open up pre-orders once a price point has been announced, which the firm hopes will be this summer.

? This all seems fantasy to me, you need INTERNET to be connected to the PS4 or cloud or Gaikai ... with 3G/4G you'll play maybe checkers or a bubble game but NOT stream Killzone or Gran turismo. Wifi hotspots in France are maybe 5% of the territory, limited to some places chosen by the city hall or some rare companies, mostly hotels ; even these would be overloaded if 10 gamers played Kilzone on the cloud.

@TheTenth666 That's why you play the portable version of Killzone over wifi instead. :P But yeah I agree too many people are putting too much empasis on the internet capabilities, Hopefully they just me we'll see mroe cross buy titles or something.
As for a PS4Vita bundle, I don't see it happening at first if they want to apear to keep the price down unless they make THAT the premium bundle and just have the PS4 along as the low price option.
@Ariakace Playing Fallout while creating Fallout, how very...*gags*
