While the industry screams for a PlayStation Vita price drop, it looks like Sony's considering a different way to stimulate sales of the troubled handheld.

The platform holder announced a new batch of European Vita bundles over the weekend. For the standard sum of €249 you’ll be able to grab a Wi-Fi Vita with a 4GB memory card and a copy of Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Similarly, for €299 you’ll be able to net a 3G system with a 4GB memory card and a download code for MotorStorm RC.

The bundles haven’t been announced in North America yet, but we reckon they’ll pop up during next month’s E3. It essentially erodes the issue attached to the Vita’s expensive storage medium – 4GB is just about enough if you’re not planning to download any games – and adds value to the package via the included software. But is it enough to convince the sceptics amongst you to pick up Sony’s new handheld?
