Sony is ready to go for what will hopefully be a strong Black Friday showing for the PlayStation brand, today announcing an array of exclusive PS3 and PS Vita hardware bundles to go on sale on November 23rd and 24th.

Three Wi-Fi Vita bundles will be available on Black Friday, each paired with a different game and priced at $199.99. Bundles for Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation and Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified will also include 4GB memory cards while, strangely, the Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes bundle will cut the memory card yet still sell at the same price. The Vita in the AC3: Liberation bundle will also be the Crystal White edition, while the other two bundles will come with the standard Crystal Black unit. These are amazing deals.

On the PS3 front, Sony will be offering what it is calling the Ultimate PlayStation 3 Value Bundle. The name fits as the bundle will contain one of the new 250GB PS3 slim consoles, a 30-day trial membership for PlayStation Plus, a copy of the Uncharted Dual Pack featuring Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and a copy of the Infamous Collection featuring Infamous, Infamous 2 and the Festival of Blood DLC. All that good stuff will only set holiday shoppers back $199.99.

Now, if only Sony would cut the price on Vita memory cards already, even if only for a one-time event like Black Friday. I desperately need a 32GB card, but they are too goddamn expensive!
