Does it bode well for a yet-to-be-released system to have last minute goodies added for launch day? The PS Vita has been a slow burning item over in Japan, being outsold by the 3DS and OG PSP and it looks like Sony is preemptively stacking the deck to jump up sales stateside. Trying to appease early adopters, Sony is adding a 250MB AT&T Data Pass and an unannounced PSN game to the First Edition Bundle that pre-ordering gamers snapped up for $350. That bundle puts the handheld into greedy hands a week early as well as Little Deviants, an 4GB memory card and that limited edition case.
Didn’t pre-order? Well Sony has something in store for you, if you’re willing to trudge out and buy your Vita right there at launch day. $300 will get you a Vita, 250MB of AT&T 3G data, an 8GB memory card and a PSN game. The company is certain this added value bundle will fly off shelves at a lightning pace and suggests eager gamers get their box of fun early. Oh and that free PSN game? Buyers only get it after they activate the 3G on the Vita. Guess it’s a good thing they tossed in that little data card!
Will this chunk of extra love convince any of you geeks to grab a shiny new Vita? Think fellow gamers will flock to stores? Let us know in the comments below!
Say what? PS Vita memory cards to run up to $120??

GamePro and GameStop are reporting the PlayStation Vita memory cards are gonna set handheld fanatics back up to $120! The smallest card at 4GB is set to run $29.99, the 8GB one will go for $44.99, 16GB will be $69.99 and the 32GB will set gamers back a whopping $119.99! The games themselves are expected to only cost $40, a third the cost of the 32GB card. Keep in mind the WiFi only Vita model will run $249. 99 at launch, making the largest memory bit pretty much half the price of the device. Put that into perspective, a WiFi unit and 32GB memory card will be 369.98!
The cards are basically a requirement to boot up certain Vita games and some will ONLY save to the memory cards. The system will allow for DLC and game downloads which will eat up precious storage space as well. Already the Vita is looking like too costly an endeavor for the mildly curious portable crowd and might end up being the PSP Go Part Deux. What do you geeks think about this? Is Sony going to bleed people dry or will this be the price early adopters pay? Sound off in the comments after the jump!
