someone lost a bet to me.. $100 bet that vitas price would drop before a year like 3DS did & it hasnt.. I win & will use that money to buy more vita titles starting off with rayman origins since its on sale for vitas bday..

Even if Sony wanted to they couldn't lower the price any further given the fact that they are already selling the Vita at a loss. This isn't the same case with Nintendo since they had a massive profit margin on the 3DS in the beginning.

Sony is having some economic problems and reducing the price of a good that they are already loosing money on isn't going to help their situation.

maybe but sony is far from being in the economic trouble that people assume it to be.. They arent making as much as they used to for sure but theyre still in the top 100 of fortune 500 companies.. Im sure vita will get a price cut this year despite it selling at a loss.. The tech will be cheaper so they will drop it by at least 10%

I read the teardown when it was released and it's about 150 dollars to create a vita. So they have wiggle room, hence the bundles at the same price as the wifi vita itself. They don't want to cut the price, it's not that they can't. Nice try.

@Vaedur The Vita costs Sony around $280 to produce, and they have to sell them cheaper to retailers so the retailer can make their money. They're losing quite a bit of money on each Vita. Not sure how anyone came to the conclusion of $150, that's complete bullshit. Sony releases every system at a loss and makes the money back on software.

The 3DS released at an outrageous, profitable price, so Nintendo could afford a price cut early.

The Vita released at-cost, or even a little under cost. Sony would be fools to make a price cut. It's an outrageously powerful piece of hardware -- way smaller than an iPad 3, but with more GPU muscle and a battery that will outlast the iPad (during gaming) -- all crammed into that little case.

People who think $250 is not a steal for that device are completely disconnected from the reality of mobile tech.

I got my 3DS on sale for $140... and it still hasn't been worth it. I bought my Vita at full price... worth every penny -- I moved my entire PSP (and most of my PS1) RPG library to it, after selling the UMD versions of the games on eBay. It is an absolutely unbeatable mobile RPG device.

I have fond memories of all of them. I'd have to say my personal #1 is the PS3. It still holds up today unlike PS1 and PS2 which both had excellent libraries of games but many of which did not age all that great. which is why in the PS3 era we were introduced to HD remasters.

The PS4 was the better seller, but i feel it didnt take as many risks to get that reward as the 3 did. And obviously the PS2 was the popular one that gave birth to many of my favorite franchises (killzone, GoW, Ratchet) but like i said above, those games were remastered in HD for PS3.

PS5 is still in its growing phase but i do like how it makes 4 games better. I keep holding out hope they will enable PS3 support for discs then it would probably be my new #1. PS1 is the grand daddy, but sadly it just doesnt hold up in in the current conditions. Especially the 3d games, i have no nostalgia for those anymore thanks to being able to play them in better (higher) quality in remaster or even emulation. When even a Dreamcast can make a PS1 game look and play better... why play them on the PS1. PS1 did have some awesome shmups though..

PSP and Vita... both excellent portables and i would say i like the Vita more due to it being able to play the plethora of PSP games (converted to digital) as well as the PS1 classics and Minis that the PSP could do but also its own selection of games. Vita had the better screen, better controls and is just a better all around PSP than even the PSP.
