Sony's Bundling Games with PlayStation Vita Memory Cards
Posted by Sammy Barker
The price of PlayStation Vita memory cards remains a sore point for some people. While the system itself is not particularly expensive for what you get, the storage options – which range anywhere from £15/$20 to £60/$100 – are prohibitively costly. However, it seems that Sony’s hoping to mitigate that issue by bundling digital games alongside the extortionate memory solutions.
Reddit user Lokarnus snapped an image of a 16GB Vita memory card which includes a voucher for ModNation Racers: Road Trip as part of the package. The bundle appears to be exclusive to continental Europe at the moment; it’s listed on Dutch website Bol.com, for example, but we can’t find it on any of the main UK or North American retailers. The aforementioned online shop is also selling an 8GB memory card alongside MotorStorm RC.
At €54.99 (£47/$72) and €39.99 (£34/$52) respectively, the packages don’t represent an enormous saving – but if Sony’s smart with this strategy, it could at least make the price of its memory cards a smidgeon more palatable.
