Posted on August 20, 2013, Ian Miles Cheong 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.
