Sony’s PS4 is definitely one next generation console that has managed to drum up its fair share of attention in the past month or so, but here we are with word that Sony has no definite or confirmed plans to release the PS4 and PS Vita as a bundle. To be more specific, SCE UK boss Fergal Gara mentioned that there are no current plans of that sort to “put the two together in one box”, although he did not rule out the possibility to work alongside retailers “to put them together alongside each other as at least a great companion trade up sale.”
Gara continued, “That’s by no means out of the question, that we can offer the consumer a package including Vita and PS4, even round launch. Now that we have a date on the table, and now that we have reasonably clear visibility on volume, our conversations with retailers are far more focused on tangibles. These are the sort of details we need to get into now.”
I guess we will know more as the PS4 rolls out this coming November 15th in North America, while our friends in Europe will have to wait until November 29th. What we do know, and has been confirmed, however, is that the PS4 and PS Vita will feature cross-platform voice chat, and a certain Shuhei Yoshida did confirm over on Twitter that the PS4 will only be able to support a quartet of controllers simultaneously, unlike the Xbox One that doubles that amount of simultaneous controller support.
