There’s enough doom and gloom surrounding the PlayStation Vita to make a Thomas Hardy novel look uplifting by comparison, but that doesn’t mean that the system has suddenly transformed into a waste of space. In fact, despite the negativity, we’re still enjoying the device as much as ever – and actively encourage you to dive in if you haven’t already.

And just in case you do happen to be in the market for a spangly new machine, this new European bundle is well worth your attention. For the grand sum of €199.99, you’ll soon be able to buy a slim system and an 8GB memory card, along with copies of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Tearaway, Gravity Rush, Escape Plan, and TxK. That’s a great little selection.

Assuming that you’ve already got the console, the memory card and games will be available separately for just €39.99, which, frankly, is a bloomin’ bargain. It’s this kind of thing with a copy of Minecraft strapped on top that could really give the console the jolt that it so dearly deserves this Christmas. Let’s hope that Sony realises that, too.
