$300 with 4 gb storage just seems to high for a portable. I think the bundles here on Amazon are a much stronger deal. :)

Someone needs to tell Sony that.

Paper Tiger says:
If they made that $250 I bet it would sell really well. 4GB won't be very useful for the instant game collection. That's too much swapping out for me and I'm really patient.

It is still quite a bit but it is a rather good deal still. That's about a $75-$90 value added.

Seems kind of silly to give a 4gig card with a year of PS+. That's only enough room to download 2 or 3 games.

Seems like a nice bundle until you inevitably drive to Target to buy a real memory card.

Well it DIDN'T SAY game voucher! It said a game! ....
Oh really and you read everything on the box? .... ..... ..............
Oh and you don't spend alot on shoes? .... ...........
Well, we need dog food anyway. .............
I know 'that's not the point'.
I know. I KNOW!
........ ..........
Ohh you're gonna bring up that again?
........ .... ........... .....
Ok ok, I'm sorry babe.. We'll watch cold case tonight ok?

Uncharted Vita alone is 3.2GB (or something close to that)

Awful. Instant games are merely Playstation Plus games which after 1 year, they aren't for you to keep and play.

Does anyone know if they are offering anything to get Japanese gamers to buy the Vita? That would seem to be one major hurdle that still need to leap over.

Red and blue Vitas launched November 15th.

Oh, and there was a black Vita/32GB card bundle.

Not bad considering the regular Vita 3G set is $300 without the game, memory card and PS+ voucher.

My thing is that Unit 13 has to be downloaded...AND you have the instant game collection that must be downloaded. 4 GB is nowhere near enough space!

That blue Vita was nice! I really hate how Japan gets all these cool colors for their systems while we never get any of them.

Between Unit 13, Uncharted Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush even a 16GB card doesn't leave much room for buying more games.

Soulshine says:
Honestly, I think if it was two years of Plus this would be a decent bundle (Plus is normally $50 per year). As long as you have confidence the Plus vita offerings will continue to be good games. Obviously you need a bigger memory card and that has been mentioned. I don't personally have any need for the 3G model since I'd never want to pay for a data plan, but I'm sure some people place a higher value on that than the standard Wifi model.

Not a great bundle here, but okay.

This bundle is ok, but doesn't make much sense.

When you are trying to promote your digital services with a digital game and a year of PS+ and offer a 4GB card, you are shooting yourself in the foot. This type of bundle makes more sense with a 16GB mem card - at least a 8GB card for crying out loud(even though that is not enough).

And they should drop the 3G off this bundle and offer the wifi model. The 3g model is rather pointless, it should be discontinued in my opinion.

Someone needs to tell you and keller that the bundle is not just "a portable and a 4GB card"

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 27, 2012 3:44:41 PM PST
I am fairly certain I know that since I listed all of the contents in the original post. Is this an English-off day for you?

Might as well change the price to 400$.

I. Flores says:
Uh, between those 3 games, its around 4.5 gigs. You don't think 9 gigs or so out of a 16gb card is enough room to buy more games?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 27, 2012 3:48:44 PM PST
How much would Resistance or Call of Duty take up?

A 4GB for a bundle that's focused on downloadable games?

Ha. Surely Sony jests.

I. Flores says:
Keller failed to mention the year of plus and the game included on the bundle. And you agreed to his statement. If you were aware of his mistake, you should've corrected him instead of agreeing to his erroneous comment.

I. Flores says:
Not sure. All I know is that 9 gigs is more than enough room to load several games.
