Tonight’s the big night for Sony and the PlayStation 4. It launches at the stroke of midnight, and there are some excellent bundles to take advantage of.

Namely a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita bundle will go on sale for just under £500, Eurogamer reports. Specifics on stores weren’t listed, but Sony itself described it as a ‘soft bundle’ with limited availability depending on store stock.

“We’re working with our retail partners to put across that proposition as well as we can,” Sony UK boss Fergal Gara told the outlet.

“It’ll come to market in a few different shapes and guises. You may walk in and get a great deal on ‘buy a Vita when bought with’ type deal. So if you buy a PS4 you can get a Vita for X. And others will say, well here’s the Ultimate Bundle and you get all those bits in it.”

“But as a base price point, in other words for the two consoles, we expect the gamer to be able to pick that up for under £500. It’s not a hard bundle pack at this point in time. It’s us working with the retailer to effectively deliver a soft bundle.”

So not the official pack we saw in MCV a little while back, then. It seems as if the Vita will be treated very much as an accessory on launch night. The system itself supports Remote Play, a feature that streams PS4 games to your Vita for play away from the TV screen.

As for the official bundle, it’s looking like its on for December.
