PS Vita Could get Massive Price Drop, Images Suggest

A NeoGaf user spotted some images on the PS Asia Flickr account which show a bundle including the PS Vita (wi-fi model), accessory pack and ModNation Racers: Road Trip for the very low price of HKD $1280, roughly equal to $165. This price marks a 45% decrease in price; a massive drop which is sure to spike some interest for people who have yet to purchase a vita. (PS Vita, Sony)

I think the Vita did get a price drop (A silent one). If you look at the Walking Dead bundle; it comes with a 3G/WiFi Vita. That 3G/WiFi Vita normally retails for 299.99, but that bundle is 249.99. At least on the Gamestop website it does.

Yes but the consumers need a not-so-silent price drop announcement.

I think the October release of an unnamed Sony console rumors doing the rounds on GAF has something to do with Vita. I hope Sony will redesign the PS Vita.

Remove 3G and add 4G LTE. Drop the proprietary storage and adapt the standard SDHC/MicroSD support. Bring the price down to $199. I assure you the Vita sales will skyrocket!

If they announce a 500 $/€ PS4/PSVita bundle at Gamescom I might very well go for it, even though I never really loved portable gaming.

$165 is a great price.. especially if ur a psn+ subscriber.. get tons of free games for the vita..example- uncharted golden abyss and gravity rush.. hopefully the vita gets a price drop so i can finally get 1

The memory card should get the same treatment.
KnaveX  +   244d ago
really, its a massive obstacle for owners and future owners alike.
GryestOfBluSkies  +   244d ago
a price drop in all territories should have happened already. it worked well to move units in Japan.

$165 is a steal.

It's not a price drop the vita needs !!!

What the vita needs is more games from established franchises and a massive price drop on the memory cards then sales will take off.
If Gran Turismo was announced at gamescom the sales would shoot through the roof and shift 3-5 million before Christmas.
Sony need to stop messing around and ignoring vita and get their 1st to focus some time on it and the thing will sell like hot cakes.

You're kinda right and wrong. With a price cut, sales should significantly increase thus more buyers, more support from 3rd party publishers/developers to make exclusives.

I'll buy another one.
SSJBen  +   244d ago
Uhm... the 45% discount is for the HK C&C event only. Not a permanent discount to the Vita.
KonsoruMasuta  +   244d ago
I said the same thing. These people are too excited to listen.
GamerGuy153  +   244d ago
But it they are willing to sell it for so little it may be a sign that they are getting them for that cheap. That means that there is financial room for a greater price drop.
mitchell1188  +   244d ago
I bought my vita at $250. Been worth every penny.
xxPillsxx  +   244d ago
Not the memory cards.
Rodent85  +   244d ago
never touch my vita since i finish gravity rush about 3 month ago,,, hope it's still working
AnimeAvenger  +   244d ago
Even with a price drop on the Vita, they need a price drop on the memory cards, and most importantly it needs more games.

Ive owned a vita for almost an year and I dont regret my purchase at all. Ive played a lot good games on it and I really like the os and hadware. Target US is selling the vita for 199$ on Sunday I believe, which would be a great time to get one.
GdaTyler  +   244d ago
LOL me getting it for $169.99 was a steal in itself. After a few months of owning it I can say it is the most fantastic handheld console I've ever gotten. I've been wanting it since it had been announced in 2011 as the NGP. Oh, how much I've waited.
