Rumor: Sony to bundle PS4 & PS Vita together later this year

PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita will be bundled together later this year, reports Inside Gaming Daily.
According to the article, which cites a ‘well-placed anonymous source,’ the pack is due out at the end of 2013 following the launch of Sony’s next-generation platform, and will retail for roughly $500/~£325.
PS4 and PS Vita share a close relationship, with the handheld able to stream titles for its console cousin via Remote Play. Packaging them both together seems like a logical step, although Sony has remained tight-lipped on any possible plans regarding a console/handheld bundle.
Sony will launch the PS4 this November for $399/£349, undercutting Xbox One by $100/£80. PS Vita hit stores in Japan in December 2011, and was released in the west last February. Sales were initially strong but quickly tapered off, though hopefully that will change on the back of several upcoming releases including Killzone: Mercenary and Tearaway.
