Sony tempts gamers with special PS Vita deal

Sony has hoped to lure gamers to the PlayStation Vita with another bundle for the official February 22 US arrival. The Launch Day bundle mates the 3G version of the console with a free month's pass for 250MB of AT&T data. While most of the accessories aren't present from the First Edition bundle, gamers get a twice-as-large 8GB memory card to encourage more game and add-on downloads.

An unnamed PSN game is available for free as well, but Sony is making it contingent on service. Players have to activate the 250MB plan to get the code, leaving them to make sure they stop access if they don't want more when they're done. Using 3G doesn't carry a contract.

The bundle doesn't have any cost premium over the regular $299 version. Sony isn't guaranteeing supply, but it does expect that the Launch Day pack will be available for at least a few days after launch. Those who do get the First Edition in the US, where it comes with 3G, are also getting the free 250MB of data and the PSN game.
