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
£29.99on 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.
Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters
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.
