Driving while gaming is a terrible idea. No one will likely debate this, unless they are awfully addicted to gaming or if they happen to be Mario. Clearly Scion and Sony don't agree, however, and have decided to partner their shiniest and newest products with a free PlayStation Vita to come with ever Scion iQ.
Scion's vice president Jack Hollis believes the two are a natural pair. "Similar to the PS Vita, the Scion iQ comes loaded with premium technological features, has a focus on functionality, is concentrated into a suitably small package and most importantly is tons of fun."
This is the second time the two have paired up, but at least the first time sort of made sense. For a limited time, people were able to download a Scion iQ for MotorStorm RC. Driving while playing a Vita can only lead to one road: The highway to the danger zone.
It's certainly not worth buying a $16,000 car to get a $300 piece of hardware, but if you wanted to buy a Scion iQ anyway, this might be something nice to sweeten the pot. The deal is between May 1st (that's today!) and July 31st, 2012, so interested parties do have a little bit of time.
