Sony is considering releasing a hardware bundle containing a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, SCEE president Jim Ryan has confirmed.

"Sure, I mean it's the sort of thing we're discussing," Ryan told EDGE. "Now I'm not saying we're going to do it, but one of the things I was pleased about [at Gamescom] is that we had the chance to really properly explain and demonstrate Remote Play.

"It was touched on at the New York event and it was touched upon at E3 but there was so much other stuff going on that it didn't really get the time that I think it warranted. When I was crafting the script I made a real effort to carefully explain it with my little analogy of how it might all happen at home."

Ryan goes on to say that consumers "have been intrigued" by Vita's functionality with PS4, "and there's going to be a great deal of crossover between potential Vita owners and PS4 owners and we're going to spend a lot of time reflecting on feedback.

"Clearly, finding ways for consumers to access both devices is a logical thing to do. Whether you put them together in a bundle, that's one way of doing it – you might get a bit of a problem with the price, but there are a variety of ways and means to do that but it's definitely something we're talking about."

Ryan's comments follow last month's rumour that Sony was set to release a PS4 & PS Vita bundle for "around $500", and comments from Sony UK boss Fergal Gara at Gamescom confirming that the platform holder was set to release some official PS4 bundles.

The first two, both containing copies of Killzone: Shadow Fall, popped up online last week.

PlayStation 4 launches on November 29.

For $550 and another controller thrown in, there's no arguing that it'd fly off the shelves
