Sony Announces Vita Pre-Order Bonuses

The fight heating up in the portable market definitely looks to be an exciting one. Traditionally, Nintendo has dominated all things portable, though with smartphones grabbing much of that market share and Sony moving in as a major player, this brawl will certainally be one worth watching. And today Sony has thrown a punch in the form of exclusive Vita pre-order bonuses for Europe!

First up are these slick blue headphones, to be offered by one set of yet unannounced retailers. Wait,isn't the Playstation Vita black? Oh hell, these are like the white headphones that came with the original PSP! Sony has some strange thing against developing matching-colored accessories. Either way, get ready to jam these Playstation branded earbuds up in your listenin' holes, unless of course you opt for door #2…

Woo-boy, check out this big steppin' Playstation Vita wallet, which not only holds all your cash monies and spendin' cards, but also up to three Playstation Vita games and three memory cards. Considering you can leave a game and a memory card in the console itself, that's a whole lotta extra gaming packed into your pocket, especially since a memory card could be holding a fistful of games by itself. 

Regardless of which bonus you choose, all gift packages come with the following goodies as well:

  • €5 discount on one of the following PS Vita games on PlayStation Store: Little Deviants, Super Stardust Delta, Hustle Kings, Escape Plan.
  • Exclusive PS Vita items for PlayStation Home: PS Vita T- Shirt, Sunglasses, Headphones, Trainers and Bag.
  • Exclusive early access to Frobisher Says! for PS Vita.
  • An exclusive PS Vita Avatar for PlayStation Network.

Honestly though, none of this seems as exciting as a pack-in game would be. We'll have to see whether Sony switches up the pre-order bonuses for North American gamers, or if we'll even get any cool stuff at all!
