Sony Computer Entertainment of America started announcing bundled versions of some PlayStation Vita games earlier this year including Madden NFL 13 and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation which were among the first. Since then, more bundles have been announced. Initially, the Madden NFL 13 bundles and AC III: Liberation bundles were advertised to come with the game, the PS Vita system, and a memory card. However, PlayStation stealthily dropped the memory card from their official page for the bundles. This no doubt caused adverse reaction from consumers across the net.
The proprietary memory cards, usually sold separately, are one of the main (if not THE main) causes for complaint against Sony’s new handheld. They’re not only necessary but also expensive. These facts left some not too attracted to the overall price when all items are combined. When it was announced that the bundles would have memory cards included at no additional cost to the bundle, this was welcomed news! Then all too soon, they were removed.
Well, fear not, my friends. It looks as if Sony will indeed be bringing back those memory cards to the PlayStation Vita bundles in the future. Unfortunately, the Madden NFL 13 bundle, which drops in just a few days on August 28th does not look like it will include a memory card. However, starting with Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, a 4 GB memory card has rejoined the bundle.
As seen on PlayStation’s Official Vita Systems site, the bundles have been updated. Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation and Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified both have bundles coming to North America which will include a game, a PS Vita WiFi system, and a 4GB memory card for the standard WiFi system price of $249.99. Sounds like a deal to me. Anyone looking to get these bundles or others, can pre-order them right now!
At this time, there is no word on the contents of other announced bundles, but when we find out, we will let you know.
So sound off in the comments below! Will you be picking up any of these bundles or others coming out later this year? Happy that a memory card is included again? Is 4 GB enough? Tell us what you think!
