Apart from some success in Japan, the PlayStation Vita is essentially dead in the water. Indeed, the handheld's predecessor – the PlayStation Portable – almost outsold it at retail a few weeks ago. However, perhaps this latest bundle for the European market, dubbed the Action Mega Pack, will be the deal to break this long-running losing streak.
Coming in at €199.99, the pack includes a slim model system and an 8GB memory card. On the software side of things, the boisterous box comes bundled with billions of games to break open. Okay, maybe it only comes with five, but that wouldn't have worked with our alliteration.
The pack will actually include Injustice: Gods Among Us - Ultimate Edition, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, as well as PSP titles God of War: Chains of Olympus and Killzone: Liberation. There is also the option to buy just the memory card and games for the reduced price of €39.99.
Now, obviously value is relative, but we think that this is a heck of a lot better than that totally ridiculous bundle that the Japanese giant announced a few months back, which listed pre-downloaded free-to-play games as a feature. Yuck. Is this the deal that will finally convince you to pick up the hard-pressed handheld? Are you already enjoying your Vita system? Tell us how you feel in the comments section below.
