Starting next week you'll be able to get your hands on this new Vita bundle, which includes the 3G system, the game Unit 13, and one year of Sony's excellent PlayStation Plus service (which comes with a lot of free games). That's $300.
The catch? This bundle comes with a 4 GB memory card, the lowest size available. That won't be very helpful if you plan to actually use that PlayStation Plus membership to download games on a regular basis. You'll have to upgrade for more space, which means dishing out extra cash for Sony's obscenely overpriced proprietary memory cards.
Oh, Sony. Such a shame.
