The PlayStation Vita Value Pack has two boxes in it: the unit box and the accessory pack. The unit box essentially contains the unit itself, the charger and a USB connector which you can connect to the charger to an A/C outlet.
The accessory pack contains a cleaning cloth, screen protective filter, a strap, a game card case, and the PS Vita case. The protection filter is something you should definitely have from day one.
Accessory Pack Contents
- Protection Filter
- Cleaning Cloth
- Wrist Strap
- PlayStation Vita Case
- PlayStation Vita Card Case
The case doesn't offer that much protection from liquid though because almost all the sides are open. Depending on the angle your Vita could fall, it can protect your unit from any minor shocks. One last thing we don't want to forget is that the Vita case can also act as a stand. You can pose your Vita at an angle so you can enjoy surfing the web. You may need something to put behind the supporting part though as there's a chance that you could knock it off balance.
The game that came with the package is Uncharted: Golden Abyss which may actually be the perfect game to showcase the Vita's capabilities. There's also a 4GB memory card that came with the unit and it was sufficient for most of my short-term needs. I can store a decent amount of photos and music, as well as download demos from the PlayStation store.
The PS Vita value pack is a perfect package for those thinking of buying a Vita for the first time. It's a perfect way to try out how much you'll really need, without buying too much of everything. It also have the essential accessories to protect your unit and your games as you play on-the-go.
The PS Vita value pack is priced around Php 15, 500 to 18,000 here in the Philippines (roughly $369 to $428). You can also buy the unit and the accessory pack separately.
