Early Release Sony PS Vita Bundle Offer: US and Canada

Early Release Sony PS Vita Bundle Offer: US and Canada

There may be many of you who will have been disappointed to learn that you wouldn’t be able to get your hands on the new Sony PS Vita before Christmas. We recently heard of the February 22, 2012 official release date for the U.S., Canada and Europe but now we have learned that you may be able to get your Sony PlayStation Vita early under a special offer from Sony if you’re lucky enough to be in the US or Canada.

It seems that Sony is to offer a PS Vita First Edition bundle and if you want it and you’re in the US or Canada, you’ll receive it one week before the official release date. The offer is open for a limited time and is available to pre-order from “select retail locations” from today. The bundle for the US includes the new 3G + WiFi PS Vita portable console, limited edition case, 4GB PS Vita Memory Card and also the Little Deviants game, for an all-in price of $349.99. Those in Canada can order the WiFi-only Vita for $299.99 with the same other additions.

The news came to us from Joe Pollicino over on Engadget, as announced by the US PlayStation Blog, and of course the best part of the offer will be getting it a clear 7 days before those who don’t order the bundle, as you’ll be able to pick it up on February 15. John Koller, director of hardware marketing said on PlayStation.Blog, “We’ve decided to give our most loyal fans an opportunity to own a PS Vita before everyone else.”

As a brief recap we can tell you that the PS Vita has a high resolution front touch screen and rear touch pad, dual analog sticks, dual cameras and motion sensors and as the next-generation portable gaming console from Sony it’s bound to be a big success. You can check out how to pre-order the PS Vita First Edition Bundle at this playstation.com link where you can also see an overview, features, tech specs and more. We can’t see details listed on what the ‘limited time’ is that applies to this offer so you may want to check it out soon.
