It's time, isn't it?
You've got the PlayStation Vita picking up some much-needed steam with a few big titles this holiday season, and you just announced three new PlayStation 3 models. And in an unsurprising bit of news, Sony says that "just about all" of Vita owners also have the PS3.
Well, now they should try to bring all new fans into the PlayStation fold. Given the connectivity between the two units and the sheer amount of software and technical capability, putting both the Vita and PS3 in the same box would be unassailably awesome in every possible sense. Toss in one game each – maybe Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception for the PS3 and Uncharted: Golden Abyss for the Vita as one cohesive theme – and you've got an extremely appealing package for gamers.
But perhaps that would prove too pricey…maybe they can wait a little while until the PS3 comes down in price and the Vita has a price drop, too. Putting the two together now would result in a price tag of around $500, and that would still be a deal. But I've seen a great many hardcore gaming fans buy such expensive bundles when it involves a game that they really want, and if we're talking about two pieces of hardware that will play thousands of games, including the latest and greatest portable technology; well, that might be pretty attractive. It's all in how you look at things, really. What is "value" to you? To me, this would be worth it.
It won't happen for the holiday season, obviously, but this is something I'd like to see in 2013.
