Sony has announced an improved bundle in a bid to boost US demand for PlayStation Vita ahead of its launch next month.
Gamespot reports that a limited-time offer will give those buying a $300 Vita with 3G support an 8GB memory card, which retails for $30, as well as 250MB of data through AT&T, and a free download of a PSN game. The standard $300 3G Vita does not come with a memory card, which is required to play several of the launch titlesincluding Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
Those that opt for the $350 3G bundle already get the 4GB memory card, but Sony is also offering 250MB of data, a PSN download, limited edition case and a copy of Little Deviants. There are no similar offers for the WiFi version, which will retail in the US for $250.
The move appears to be designed to ensure that there is demand for the 3G Vita at launch, after Japanese consumers largely opted for the cheaper WiFi-only model when the new handheld launched in Japan last month. One report claimed retailers were cutting the price of the 3G model in a bid to boost sales. Vita will be released in the US, Europe and Australia on February 22.
