Playstation Vita Price Drop August 20, 2013

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

The sales that have been taking place in many retailers this week will be permanent.  Over two years after I originally previewed the system at E3 2011, Sony has officially announced at Gamescom 2013 that they are slashing the price of the Playstation Vita in North America to $199US.  That slash includes all model Vita systems currently at retail, 3G or WiFi-only, and systems that may be bundled with games like The Walking Dead which released not too long ago.

Not content to do just that, Sony has also slashed the price of the Vita’s proprietary memory cards.  Many people did not like the fact that the Vita used a proprietary memory card to save data instead of a more common memory type like SD or SDHC, and complained that these cards were extremely overpriced in comparison to those more common formats.  Now, while the Vita will still be using the same proprietary memory, that memory will be a lot more affordable.  While memory on the lower end will only be cut by a few dollars, the price of higher capacity Vita memory cards will be cut by as much as $20 US.

You can read all the details about the price drop, and the new memory prices here.
