Finally appeasing the many fans who held back from buying a Vita due to its price tag – for the handheld console and the memory cards – Sony has dropped the price of the PS Vita to $199 and slashed the prices of the memory cards.
Below are the new price points:
• Playstation Vita:
• 4GB Vita memory card
• 8GB Vita memory card
• 16GB Vita memory card
• 32GB Vita memory card
This price cut puts the PS Vita on the same playing field as its #1 rival: the Nintendo 3DS. Having undergone its own price cut in the past, portable gamers flocked to the more affordable option. Hopefully, the newer Vita will have its time to shine.
