With the newly announced PS Vita special launch day bundles, those who missed out on the opportunity to reserve a unit of Sony’s upcoming handheld gaming console through the First Edition Bundle still have a chance to get in on some limited edition goodies. And this isn’t all; the Japan-based conglomerate has also thrown in a few extra treats for its previously unveiled package.

The entire package comprises of an 8GB memory card along with an AT&T DataConnect Pass and a free game from PSN. Well, Sony isn’t giving them away just yet. Being part of a promotional offer, the PS Vita special launch day bundle will be available to users on a first come, first serve basis at the time of release.

A post made by John Koller, Director, Hardware Marketing at Sony, on the official PlayStation US blog, stated, “We are happy to announce today that we will be creating an extremely limited edition PlayStation Vita 3G/Wi-Fi bundle designed to reward those who brave the cold to stand in line on February 22nd (or even those who come in the few days that follow).”
