More Retailers Slash Vita Prices, A Hint Of Something Official?
Maybe it's long past time for Sony to drop the price of the PlayStation Vita. And retailers may be prepping early for that anticipated announcement.
As reported at Dual Shockers, multiple stores have cut the price of Sony's portable.
For instance, there's a Target sale that has both the Wi-Fi and 3G models marked down to only $199; that's a full $100 savings for the 3G model, which is normally priced at $299. Then we've got Best Buy and Amazon selling both models for $199 as well, which could imply that Sony will indeed make an official announcement in a matter of hours. The PlayStation conference at Gamescom takes place today at 10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST. Most are anticipating a launch date for the PS4 and this new evidence may also point toward a price cut for the Vita.
Do you think a price drop would spur Vita sales? I mean, without much in the way of software, it's still tough to sell a system, regardless of price...
