So it looks like the Vita is finally lowering its price, at least in Japan.  Sony announced this morning, via an online broadcast, that starting February 28th both the 3G/Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi only models of the Vita are going to cost ¥19,980 (~$215).  The original prices for the systems were ¥29,980 for the 3G/Wi-Fi model and ¥24,980 for the Wi-Fi only model.

We know sales of the Vita have been sluggish.  Maybe this is all they need in Japan to get the system selling.  There’s no word yet of a price drop outside of Japan, but if it’s going to happen we may hear something about it during Sony’s PlayStation 4 announcement on Wednesday.  This is certainly lining up to be a huge week for Sony!

Pretty much unbeatable in any game. Master of all, n00b in none. My forte is whatever is in the system, arcade cabinet or on the computer. I enjoy winning but have gotten so used to it I'd like to give losing a try to see how it tastes. This is my Xbox Live gamertag, add me. My time is money, but if you're lucky maybe I'll give you a free whoopin'.
