It seemed like a big possibility with numerous retailers dropping the price to $199.99 this week, and now it's become official from Sony.
Oh wow, that's a killer price for a Vita no doubt.
I'm waiting for a slim 1080p vita
i have the 3g vita but wouldnt mind one with tv out if they made it.
So what's the price for us British folk? £199 lol?
You will be waiting a while. I wonder how much the memory cards will be now after the cut.
Huh? Are you talking about a screen upgrade? Probably not going to be happening. It's already OLED, literally the best quality display not even out to the mass market. Also, a PPI increase and major display change was a cause of concern when PSP did it. I recalled a lot of people complaining about "ghosting" in pixels of the LCD. So, Sony don't want another error like that happening again. But there will be a slim VITA....sometime in the future. Let's not forgot, Sony still need to weed out the 3G version and get more colors out (even the white color is only if you buy Asscreed).
Now people cant whine that PSVita price is too high
The media will find something else to complain about. Game journalist want the Vita to fail. They have since it launched.
Yep , now we will see if that works like you people say, they only showed borderland 2 which is awesome if i didn't play it on pc and ps3 . If the owners increased the developers will support it so i think this is great but like what i said , most people are not buying the vita because it doesn't have the games they are interested in ..
Oh I'm sure they'll find some way to whine.
People will always whine. But the majority will see $199 as a MORE than reasonable price.
Obviously its not the media, but consumers thought it was too high.
The memory cards also get a price drop, that's great
The last handheld i bought was a Gameboy advance. Looks like i'll be picking up a Vita in the near future tho.Already have like, what? 10+ free games from PS+? This is great news for Vita.
Really? You missed out on a lot of great games then.
Haha. That was technically the last handheld I bought too (I got PSP gifted to me as a present a while later). You're going to like VITA if you like what you see at Gamescom and what's been released so far. ^^
and and memcards!
and memory card prices will be significant lower damn sony you heard us good borderlands 2 on the go ultimate win
ok that's pretty awesome I have to admit.
lol at disagrees. Must be another Vita hater. Anyways maybe people will buy more and in return we'll get more games. Hopefully.
yes sir haters will find a way to hate but Vita is gonna get a lot more support now with much better MSRP price and hopefully much better prices for memory cards borderlands 2 on the game
thank you, Sony.
I was happy with this, then heard that Borderlands 2 is also coming to Vita! wow I definitely have to get one after I save up for my PS4!
Vita saved.... Good thing they cut the price on the memory cards. I wonder if we might just get that killer PS4+PSvita bundle.
About fracking time. Those memory cards were just plain profiteering!! Good news. Might buy another vita
Great but still no games.
You're kidding, right? They're announcing game after game. GTFO.
no I am not kidding. I want one but not enough games to warrant my purchase. Only games that coming or already out I want is Persona 4 Golden and Ys: Memories of Celceta
This is sooooooooo 2012!! GTFO
don't know why you are getting worked up over an opinion
@Misaka_x_Touma Your comments are a waste of time troll. They just announced game after game for the Vita.
Your past comments indicate trolling. You had no interests in the first place. Also, the fact that you said "no games" is so wrong. Yea, you're trolling.
Yes, it has games. I have over 40 games for PSV.
The Vita has games, the majority are just not the ones you want but it does not warrant the "FUD" you just said.
Open gamerankings and check how many games have above 80% for PSV and for 3DS. Almost the same amout
199$ is the perfect price for the vita with the great games already out and the games coming up soon. Dragons crown, soul sacrifice, muramasa, gravity rush, uncharted, wipeout, ac liberation, ray man legends, killzone, lbp, tearaway, and now borderlands 2....listed all these games since people are going to troll by saying " vita has no games"
The problem with that list I'd majority of those games are available on consoles or are a slimmed down version of a console game. It's the reason why I sold my vita. The vita needs original games imo not console ports. Once they start releasing more games like gravity rush ill buy another vita. Oh and a mem card price drop is mandatory since plus gives away so many vita games. No bashing just my honest opinion
Good news... but not low enough for Europe. If Vita costs £120 that would be great.
Still not buying it.
Yet, you felt the need to post anyway?
PS fanboys do it all the time in Xbox articles... so i thought i'd just do the same. Is that ok with you?
Said no one ever.
You don't give a reason, so I'm guessing you don't like portable gaming .
@Izzy408 Then why post troll?
http://n4g.com/news/1335847... It's funny. In the article above you said "Fanboy at it's finest." Were you trying to teach people how to be one and you were merely indicating that he's doing it wrong? Troll.
Thank you for proving my point; you've just strengthen my argument that much more. In that article, all I did was point out his complete arrogant and bias approach. In this article, all I said was, "still not buying it," yet everyone seems to have been offended by that simple statement. Pathetic.
What the hell are you talking about? "Still not buying it." How is that proving your point, or even strengthening your argument. If you were going to make a point, you should flesh it out. Pathetic.
Looks like you just became what you most hated.
Doesn't matter it won't dominate the 3ds anyway
It doesn't need to
@MrTrololo Go troll another gaming device...or even better just leave N4G.
Nice, time to buy a cosmic red vita.
still annoucing vita games
My shop have are already selling the vitas at a discount, currently going for 150€ so this announcement did nothing for me
Still not enough games imo. Wheres the god of wars, infamous, and killzone at. They only showed indie titles. I would only get one for my ps classics on the go or if they put minecraft on it. Imagine minecraftbon the go with actual controls.
Good news, i might get one next year after ps4, to play Soul Sacrifice FINALLY :B
I was expecting 150€ for PSVita and a maximum of 50€ ofr 32GB memcard...still too pricey.
I was expecting Infamous Vita. Guess we have to wait until the system sells until they have enough confidence to take risks. Bioshock Vita still in matchmaking. I think a lot of AAA PS Vita games are being made. It's just that they are already having trouble selling Vita's and won't allow the launch of PS4 to overshadow it and kill any demand. Probably next year they'll focus more on Vita since PS3 will pretty much be less supported by next year. Hopefully this price drop makes developers recognize the Vita and make games for it after it sells some more.
