Sony Unveils PlayStation 3, Vita Black Friday Deals
Once the turkey and cranberry sauce is finished and the football games end, families can spend more time together — playing video games.
Sony is getting in on the Black Friday deals, announcing exclusive deals on several PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita bundles, which include big games and reduced pricing.
The Ultimate PS3 Value Bundle will be $199.99 and includes the 250GB PS3, the Uncharted Dual Pack (Drakes Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves), the inFamous Collection (infamous, infamous 2, and Festival of Blood) plus a 30-day PlayStation Plus trial membership.
Meanwhile, several PlayStation Vita bundles will also be available for $199.99 from select retailers.
Amazon and GameStop will sell the PS Vita Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Bundle, with a crystal white PS Vita Wi-Fi system, memory card, and the Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation game.
For the military inclined, Best Buy has the PS Vita Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified Bundle, which includes a black version of the console, a 4GB memory card, and a copy of the title game.
Lastly, Target is exclusively offering the Lego Batman 2 Limited Edition PlayStation Vita Bundle, packaging a crystal black PS Vita Wi-Fi system with Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.
All sales are available to shoppers on Nov. 23 and 24, for those unwilling to rummage through the Black Friday crowds. Bundles are available while supplies last.
“If you don’t own a PS Vita or PS3, now’s the time,” John Koller, vice president of Sony’s home consoles and handheld platforms department, said in a blog post. “PlayStation platforms will be paired with the biggest and best franchises in gaming, proving once again that PlayStation is the best place to play.”
According to the blog, there will also be special pricing available for new and existing colors of Dualshock 3 wireless controllers at select retailers.
