Amazon and GameStop Offering Vita 3G Bundle. (8GB Memory Card, 250MB AT&T Pass, and PSN Voucher)
Amazon and GameStop have updated their listing for the Vita 3G/Wi-Fi model. The bundle, which you can preorder here or here, now includes the Vita 3G/Wi-Fi model, an 8GB memory card, a 250MB “AT&T DataConnect Session pass”, and a voucher for an unnamed PSN game. This will run you $299.99 with the emphasis that this bundle contains $55 of extra value. An 8GB Vita memory card runs at $29.99 and the 250MB 3G plan costs $15 which would leave the PSN voucher with a $10 value.
Preexisting preorders for the 3G version have been upgraded to the new bundle.
Here’s some ‘fine print’ details listed on the Amazon product page:

Some of the wording seems a little strange but the major thing to note is that the PSN voucher will be sent to you 30 days AFTER you activate the AT&T DataConnect Pass.
With Amazon and GameStop offering the same bundle as a replacement for the 3G version I wouldn’t be totally surprised if other retailers offer this bundle as well. With the included memory card, data and PSN voucher this looks to be one of the better deals out there for the Vita launch.
