The Best Buy Sunday sales flyer for the week of Sunday, June 8 leaked out Thursday revealing a new bundle just in time for E3. The PS4 and PS Vita are brought together along with “Borderlands 2” for the handheld at a discounted price.
The Playstation 4 and PS Vita “Borderlands 2” bundle with an 8GB memory card will be on sale for $559.98 starting Sunday. That’s a $40 savings off $399.99 regular price of the home console and $199.99 regular price of the handheld.
However, the ad listing shows that this is a Best Buy special bundle and not an official Sony bundle as so many have wished. The SKUs for both the PS4 and PS Vita are listed indicate that this is a dual purchase requiring both devices to be added to your shopping cart to receive the discount versus a single item. Either way, this is a decent deal for those looking to own both gaming consoles.
The Playstation Plus subscription will also get a rare discount during the same week. The ad lists the 12-month PS Plus membership card at a $10 discount for $39.99. This gives access to online multiplayer for the PS4 plus the Instant Game Collection which offers new free games to download every month to the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. Is this a hint of some new big E3 announcement regarding the premium service? We’ll have to wait until the evening of Monday, June 9 to find out.
There’s not much game deal action for the PS4 shown so far but “inFamous: Second Son” and “Bound by Flame” are both listed for $39.99. They are joined by “Call of Duty: Ghosts” at half off its regular price for $29.99.
Expect free shipping and in-store pickup to be available when these deals go live Sunday morning after 1 a.m. EST. Sales tax will be applicable though.
