North American customers who purchase a PlayStation Vita bundle, including launch title Little Deviants
, will be able to play the system a week before the official February 22 release date.
The "First Edition Bundle," now available for pre-order at Amazon, includes Bigbig's minigame collection as well as a "limited edition case" and 4GB memory card. The U.S. bundle will feature the 3G + Wi-Fi model of the hardware for $350, while a Canadian bundle will include a Wi-Fi-only hardware for CDN$300.
It's unclear whether other PlayStation Vita software and online features will be ready for purchase and use when the bundle is made available February 15.
Sony announced the February 22 launch date for the European and North American version of the Vita earlier this month
, though no similar Early Access Bundle has been announced for Europe.
The region-free system
will hit Japanese stores December 17
, fulfilling a January promise
to release the system in at least one region before the end of the year.
Over 100 titles are currently in development for the multi-functioned portable, according to Sony.
