Vita Price Cut: $199 for PS Vita, Cheaper Memory

Sony has announced at Gamescom today that the PlayStation Vita and its memory cards will be seeing a major price drop.

The PlayStation Vita will now cost $199 USD and 199 Euro, in North America and Europe, respectively.

This is great news for anyone hoping to pick up a PS Vita ahead of the release of the PlayStation 4, as the handheld console will be fully compatible with “most” games on the PS4 to use as a secondary gaming device not unlike the Wii U’s gaming tablet.

The reduction in price, and the many game announcements for the PS Vita should make it a much more attractive peripheral for gamers.

The vita’s price always seemed a little high, but acceptable to some point. The memory cards though were ridiculous! Wasn’t the 32gb originally $50 or $60? By “price cut” it better knock it down to half that at least to be reasonable. And if they want that “Sony Premium” it better not be more expensive than the Ultra-high speed SD cards.

The integration with PS4 is pretty cool though, surprise me Sony and you may make me buy a vita and PS4 instead of an Xbox One and Kinect.
