A short while ago there was news that the 3G/WiFi version of the PlayStation Vita was canceled by online retailer and it seems that may have been a precursor for what was just announced today. The 3G version of the PlayStation Vita is actually now being given a launch bundle that not only is provided for the same price but also comes with a number of bonus goodies.
The 3G version will now be launched with a 8GB memory card that is $30 in value, an AT&T DataConnect Session Pass and an unnamed PlayStation Network game. The model is available for pre-order now at Amazon. It is interesting to see Sony create this bundle themselves, though this certainly does make the 3G version look a bit better than the original $250 WiFi only model.
