It's a rebate offer which ends mid July

It's kind of a limited deal...
Good for the consumers, nonetheless.

There is still no source, only a quote which everyone can make. Give us a link to the quote, his Twitter or Facebook account where his quote stated, his blog or a website which has the source.

The source is Sony... This is MCV.... Not like a blog... This is also being reported on VG247..... Read it before you report.... (said at the bottom "details coming shortly" then once they got information they edited it!

I don't care if you're MCV, I don't even know your site. If there is no noticeable source, how should we know this is real?

It's for 6 weeks, and it's France only...

EDIT: MVC got it already done...

I think sony is testing it. When the price drop increase sales sony announces a global price cut. No im not waiting for a price drop. I already own one and it is a blast:D

There were already some pretty good pre-order deals in France.
Actually I bought mine for 250 Euros, got a travel pouch and a 50 Euro voucher.
I didn't even open package and resold the Vita brand new for 230, while keeping the 50 Euro voucher and the pouch.
And now I get to buy a new one for 200 anyway? Awesome!

I like that it lasts until mid-July.
This way, I can gauge what software is coming at E3, and then maybe invest.
If Nintendo announces a revised 3DS with a built in dual stick, I'll probably get a 3DS.
If Nintendo doesn't announce a 2-stick 3DS and Sony announces a strong lineup for the Vita especially Killzone), I'll get a Vita.

However, I wonder what kind of message it sends to consumers in other markets.
It makes you want to wait.
