PS Vita Price Cut In America

News

Following the price cut of the PS Vita in Japan which saw sales skyrocket from 11,000 a week to a staggering 62,000 in the first week following the cut, Sony stores in America have now slashed the price of the 3G model of the console by a massive $100. It’s unclear whether this is a short-term sale or a permanent price cut but if this is a permanent move then it’s increasingly likely that we will be seeing a similar drop for the EU market.

It certainly bodes well for future sales of the console and pundits were expecting to see a price cut for the Western market following the sales surge in Japan.

  1. Think I said it elsewhere, but Sony need to focus on a single model and eliminate market confusion. I don’t think 4G will work in the UK at the moment because of the cost of data useage although it will be essential for the remote PS4 connectivity away from home.

    Price wise, we’d need to see uniform cuts for both the wi-fi and 3G versions, replace them with a 4G version BUT keep the price down on that as well.

    It will be interesting to see if the US sales figures increase following this price cut though along the same lines as the Japanese sales. If they do, then I expect an imminent EU drop within a couple of weeks.
