    PS4 & PS Vita Bundle Coming For 'Around $500' Rumour

    Bundle announcement set for Gamescom?

    Sony may introduce a hardware bundle containing a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita when the next-gen console goes on sale later this year, according to a new report.

    Inside Gaming Daily claims to have been told by a "well-placed anonymous source" that a bundle containing the two consoles will release at "the end of the year" for "around $500" (~ 325).

    Sony has yet to announce any form of PS4/PS Vita bundle, but has been keen to push PlayStation Vita's functionality with its upcoming next-gen platform.

    PlayStation Vita can be used to stream all PS4 titles directly via Remote Play and as a second-screen device. Sony has previously described the device as a "PS4 in your pocket".

    If true, the bundle may offer a healthy saving on buying the two consoles individually.

    A PlayStation Vita currently costs around $249.99 (169.99), with PS4 set to cost $399.99 (349) when it goes on sale this Christmas.

    Uh, well. That does sound interesting. If this is legit, then I might get this bundle.

    I'm already not getting the PS4 at launch just because I can't afford it right now. I'm already saving up for it though. If this is true, then I will wait just a little bit longer and buy this bundle. I plan on getting the Vita anyways, so this deal would simply be too good. Hopefully we'll hear about it at Gamescon.

    If it does come then there's no way it'll launch for 325. PS4 on it's own is launching for 349, Sony don't use exact currency exchanges.

    Not a bad deal at all if true, but I don't really care about the PS Vita to be honest.

    I'd be on it if I didn't have two Vita systems already.

    Yeah, if they did, we'd be paying about $100-150 less for the PS4. and about half the price for games...

    This would be an amazing bundle. I want a Vita anyway so paying 100$ extra is nothing to get it.
    Think about it for 499$ (the price of Xbox one) you get two great consoles.

    I would be very interested in a bundle if they offered it for 500. That's a good deal.

    I don't see it happening for that price, seems too good to be true.

    Yeah maybe 550. But I doubt it would sell that well.

    I doubt they would make it public at gamescom.
    ...it would probably make sales for current Vita much more difficult, as most ppl would wait for that cheap bundle.

    I heard they're announcing a price cut on the Vita at the gamescom too, so if that's true, the $500 price tag would make a lot more sense.
    Hard choice for me though. PS4 + Vita with 3 month PS+ or PS4 with Game (Watch_Dogs or something), and 1 year PS+. I'm leaning to PS4 + game and 1 year PS+. Not a huge fan of handhelds, but I like the Vita.

    I sold my Vita after 10 days of owning it.. got more than I paid back for it. Don't regret selling it either. I just didn't like how it felt when holding it and there wasn't much for games that I wanted.

    I see it going for $550, $500 is just too low. $550 is still a better deal then the Xbox One, it might even change people's mind on getting an Xbox One first if it goes for $550. That's only $50 more than the Xbox and you get two systems people might trade in their Wii U for this

    That's what I'm thinking. If it proves to be true. It would be hard for all but the most emotionally attached to buy an Xbox One for $500 when he could get a PS4 + a Vita for $550. If this rumor proves true at $500 then It becomes a no-brainer.
    Before you talk about the differences between the PS3's and the 360's RAM and the way ports are handled, read these.
