Preorders for the PlayStation Vita officially starts today! As we previously reported, the stand-alone PS Vita will be sold here for $399 come February 22.
But who buys a spanking new portable gaming device without any games or accessories?
If you plan to pick up either Uncharted: Golden Abyss or Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, a 4GB memory card and an official accessories pack along with your Vita, ask for the PlayStation Vita Value Pack instead. This will run you either $499 (for the Uncharted version) or $489 (Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus) – you save $37.70 or $32.70, respectively.
If you’d rather go without the accessories pack (screen protector, case, etc), there are Software Bundles as well – the PS Vita with Uncharted/Ninja Gaiden and 4GB memory card can be yours for $479 (Uncharted) or $469 (Ninja Gaiden). Savings of $18.80 and $13.80, respectively.
Better yet, do a preorder for any of the four aforementioned bundles at partners stores, and Sony Computer Entertainment will throw in a free downloadable game: puzzle-platformer Escape Plan.
The Escape Plan preorder bonus applies only if you pick up one of the bundle packs from a partner store: Gamescore, Funz Centre, G3 Interactive, Gaming World, Scenic Multimedia, Uptron, and all Sony Store, Sony Center and HMV outlets.
