PSVita will receive a series of “Mega Packs” featuring an 8GB memory card and a set of downloadable titles in the UK.

Update! – True pricing now available at the bottom of the post.

PlayStation Vita newcomers might appreciate this more than seasoned veterans, but the Vita is getting “Mega Packs” in the UK. Customers will be able to get the first pack complete with ten digital download titles and an 8GB memory card for one low price. As most of you will have realized by now, 8GB isn’t really enough for the serious Vita player so this pack is definitely much more suited to newcomers (besides the fact those downloadable titles will probably fill your card, haha).

Here’s the full set of details;

U.K. consumers will be able to snap up the first Mega Pack later this month, which features a voucher to download 10 titles, among which include LittleBigPlanet Vita, WipEout 2048 and MotorStorm RC.

Sony has yet to confirm a price point for the bundle, but it is listed down for £29.99 on Smyths – that’s roughly the price of a standalone 8GB memory card, we should point out.

“We know from our research that our younger gamers love playing with their PS Vita; exploring all of the device’s unique features while enjoying rich and deep gaming experiences on the top-quality 5-inch OLED touchscreen,” Sony commented. “Through these findings, we’ve carefully chosen the games that feature in the PS Vita Mega Packs.”

Sony confirmed that it will release more Mega Packs later in the year. The full line-up of software in the first bundle can be seen below.

LittleBigPlanet Vita
WipEout 2048
MotorStorm RC
Little Deviants
Frobisher Says
Ecolibrium
Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters
Lemmings
Hungry Giraffe
The HD Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character

You might have noticed some of those titles are actually free on the PSN, so it still remains to be seen how good of a deal this is (especially if you have/are getting PS+). Also, final pricing is yet to be confirmed, as £29.99 might not be 100% accurate.

Update: Pricing has been confirmed at £34.99 in the UK, €39.99 in the EU (Source / Source)

    Can’t imagine that the price is accurate but if it is that’s an AMAZING deal.

    • Kyle Wakeling

      Yeah, I’m skeptical too; but then again, most of those games are free or were/are on PS+ so it might be feasible.

      • Lights

        They’re basically giving away the games for the price of the memory card if it’s true.

        Although most of those games are either developed or published by Sony so they’re not really making a significant loss by offering the games. I’d find it interesting if they started bundling systems with a offer like this.

        I’m sure a ‘PS Vita with a 8GB memory card and 10 games’ boxed offer would tempt quite a few people.

  • Darryl Ellson
  • Jonathan Harding-Rathbone

    Surely that comes to almost if not more than 8Gb of games?

    • Kyle Wakeling

      LBP + Wipeout 2048 + Motorstorm RC = (1.4GB + 1.8GB + 0.7GB) = ~3.9GB

      It sounds like it will all fit (those are the biggest games afaik), but not with much room left.

  • Rhys Hughes

    This is a great concept. Now, sort out the price on the 32GB cards and start making 64/128/256GB cards Sony!

    • JonofPDX

      This really fits w/ Sony’s marketing/pricing strategy. For whatever reason they prefer to give added value (usually w/ bundles) rather than lower their base price. They did the same thing for the Vita, PSP, PS2 and PS3.

  • Toploader

    Cool, I hope they really start to push the Vita, and the downloads option is a good idea. People get used to the idea that the Vita is basically better with cool indie digital titles than retail games.

  • Buckybuckster

    Would love to see something like this hit NA.

  • OkayReviewer1

    Does this include the PS Vita in the pack xD and by the way will the memory sticks price lower down

    • JonofPDX

      Doubt you’ll see an outright price cut. Sony prefers to add value rather than reduce prices–think it’s a hold over from their TV business where being “premium” was a selling point.
