Dealspwn reports: "Sony announced that the PS Vita would receive an official price cut in the US and mainland Europe yesterday, but according to a new statement made to Dealspwn, it appears that retailers will have the final say here in the UK."
That's a shame. Currently you can get a Vita, mega pack and 8GB cards for £170. Was hoping this would drop too. I'm tempted to get one at that price anyway but I think I'll wait to see what offers pop up during Christmas.
Well that isn't such a loss since there was no RRP to begin with. This could explain how I got my Vita with a good deal (£100 off with the new Spiderman film, a memory card and LBP vita) back in January.
Agreed, the fact that retailers can set the pace means that they're more free to viciously compete with each other. Meaning that we win!
Oh blimey.... Right? That's UK speak right? Put anotha shrimp on the barbay!!!
Not quite, old chum. Wrong hemisphere, perhaps?
"Look at this geezer. Being all posh and what not. I'll F**K you up blud" Sorry I had to, sadly, show the other side of Britishness that should die in a fiery hell hole. I couldn't bring myself to do the illiterate grammar that is involved in such a sentence. I am not personally attacking you @ TripC50 these are more traditional British sayings http://resources.woodlands-...
Darn, I wasn't even close.
LOL! That aint anyfing like we speak, mate.
Nope. Not even close
Someone's been watching too much SCRUBS (awesome show BTW)
Oh JD, such an awesome show. Oh well, at least we got 8 seasons of hilarity. And no,there is no season 9, Scrubs ended at 8, 8 i tell ya!
that's the Australian stereotype...
Then may it continue to not sell over there.
Come on Sony, as soon as I heard about BL2 and the price cut I was all set, but not here in the UK? WHY!!??
Did you not read the link? We don't have an RRP so UK retailers can put there own price cuts on which they are already doing.
No, I didn't read it, cool man!
Can't people in UK just import from neighboring satellites?
Vita is region-free, so yeah, it's more than possible. That said, I stupidly thought you meant actual satellites at first. Like, from space. Space importing would be very expensive, if awesome. #imanidiot My idiocy aside, shipping could well offset any potential savings.
Looking at my avatar I could see how you got that. Wasn't sure if UK had certain restrictions or not, thx for the reply.
Oops a bit of a slip by Sony here, most UK gamers already think we live in rip off Britain where corporations stiff their customers at every turn. If no price cut then I'm sure Sony could do something around a better bundle, making your UK gamers feel wanted and not ignored??? Come on Sony, you were doing sooo well up-to now, don't drop the ball here!
Zavvi have massively dropped their prices according to a new thread - http://n4g.com/news/1337532... As the article says, just because Sony can't set the RRP in the UK doesn't mean that we won't get some mean deals over here. Retailer competition is going to be fierce.
