PS Vita Price Cut Analysis

Following the PS Vita price cut announcement, there are 2 questions that one could ask. First, why know? Second, why the same price for both versions? We all expect the February 20th announcement and together with it some big reveal, so the company could have decided to prepare itself, to set the stage for what’s to come. This explains why know, but there's more. What could it be? (PS Vita)

Sony PlayStation devices are known for longevity.
PSP is 8 years old now and still kicking butt.
When Sony say 10 years life cycle them mean it and support it.

Fail writer - "Following the PS Vita price cut announcement, there are 2 questions that one could ask. First, why know?"

Anyway on subject, my guess is they realized the 3G Vita's were selling very poorly so there is no sense in really having it cost more when it really doesn't do much more with the 3G anyway.

I mean in all honesty the 3G is very useless, you can't play most games with it and about the only other benefit is for simple media tasks out of the home and using the GPS.

I do know one thing if Japan got their cut, that means the other Vita's prices will be getting cut soon also.

I think 3g version being at the same price as the Wifi version is a clear sign that Vita 4g is coming and they want to clear the stock of the 3g Vita

Jmo I think the writer is right Sony is going to implement gaikai on Vita but not on the current models if you remember the new (rumored updated) system have some new Ports added, I'm betting one of them is for a classic controller for the Vita that way it fixes the lack of L2/3 and R2/3 without having to customize every game to Vita touch screens.

'This explains why know, but there's more.'?
