Choose your PS Vita bundle
PlayStation Vita is almost a dream come true for gamers on the go. A year before Sony announced the PS4, they were already designing PS Vita "for the players" with stunning looks and controls just right for FPS and other hardcore genres. PS Vita also has enough horsepower for its own entry in the brilliant Uncharted series.
Choosing your PS Vita bundle is mostly a question of price, and which games and extras are packed in. Use our buyer's guide and comparison table to choose your perfect PS Vita bundle.
Meet the 2014 PS Vita Slim
PS Vita is currently available in one model and one colour (we hope you like black). That's the PS Vita Slim, also known as Vita 2000. And it's both slimmer and lighter than older PS Vita models.
Vita Slim has an LCD screen instead of the old model's OLED display. But there's an advantage: much longer battery life.
The Slim also comes with Wi-Fi as standard – there's no 3G option anymore. But given that 3G usually means having to pay an extra monthly bill, that's probably not such a bad thing.
Lots of bundled games to choose from
From Minecraft to Lego Batman, from Final Fantasy to Borderlands 2 – there's a big choice of pack-in games with PS Vita deals. You can always find the latest bundles with our filters, so have a play around and see what takes your fancy.
The hidden cost of memory cards
One complaint gamers have with the PS Vita is its proprietary memory cards. They're pretty expensive compared to standard, ten-a-penny SD cards. But if you want to buy games digitally, you've gotta have one.
If you see a bundle with a memory card packed in, you might want to grab it. You're going to be needing one anyway, so you might as well get it with your Vita bundle.
Old 3G + Wi-Fi Vita bundles
When PS Vita first launched in 2012, there were two models available: one with Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities, and another with just Wi-Fi. Both models also featured an OLED screen, known for its vivid colours.
These older PS Vita bundles aren't really available anymore. If you want a new PS Vita console, go with the Slim.

All the buttons
Apart from only having two shoulder buttons, PS Vita has all the same inputs as PS3 and PS4 controllers. It also has a great D-pad, four face buttons, two analogue sticks, and Start and Select buttons.
Then there's the Vita's touch screen, rear touch pad, microphone, two cameras with face tracking, and Sixaxis motion sensors. That's a lot of ways to play.
RemotePlay with PS4
PS Vita is a great complement for PlayStation 4 as well. It connects to its big console brother in lots of ways, most importantly through RemotePlay. If you have a PS4 and a Vita, you can play any PS4 game on your Vita over Wi-Fi. Don't fancy getting out of bed? RemotePlay!
