Sony drops Vita’s price in Japan
No info on the memory cards yet.
Sony has, as expected, dropped the Vita’s price in Japan. The handheld’s sales were struggling worldwide, and this is a reaction that should have happened earlier. The system came out in February 2012 and it has been exactly one year since the handheld came out.
Sony has announced new prices for the system during the Vita heaven in Japan. The basic model gets a 5000 yen price drop from 24,980 yen to 19,980 yen. The 3g model has also been dropped in price.
Hiroshi Kawano, the boss of PlayStation Japan, announced the price drop during a Vita heaven live stream. The stream is now over, and not many new games have been announced, however, Final Fantasy X HD has been shown, and Square’s executive apologised for the delay.
The 3DS costs 18,900 yen and now both the consoles are in the same price range as each other. No price cut for NA or Europe has been announced.
