Sony has just confirmed that its PS4 and Vita Ultimate Player Bundle is real, following a leak on Amazon France.



It’s real. Sony said in a statement to Eurogamer, “The availability of the PS4 / PS Vita bundle will be determined and announced on a regional basis.”

That’s all you’re getting for now. There’s no solid release date or pricing yet, but we’ll update you once we know more.

Dubbed the “Ultimate Player Edition”, the bundle – which has been rumored on the hamster wheel since last year – purportedly contains a Ps4 and the new PlayStation Vita slim model.

The European price is listed as €579.99, which will run around the $789.99 mark in the US.

IGN did the maths and calculated the savings for you: there aren’t any. PlayStation Vita slim is priced at €179.99 ($245.16) while PS4 is €399.99 ($544.83).

Therefore, if not some odd joke posted by an Amazon employee, the bundle will run you the same price as a PS4 and Vita bought together in the US as well.

The price makes sense. Last year, when the rumor first surfaced, I contacted all the GameStop stores in the counties touching mine, as was told is a ‘true’ bundle with a discount were to be applied (as the $500/$400 rumor stated), customers could be getting $700.00 worth of stuff.

“So for $700.00 to be knocked down to $400.00 I don’t think that’s going to happen,” said the store manager at the time. “If they are going to bundle it, it won’t be for $400.00.”

We’ll just have to wait on solid details which will surely be revealed during Sony’s E3 press conference on Monday.

Amazon France lists the bundle for a July 4 release.
