Sony’s just had a Japan-focused, Vita-centric event – and in addition to a couple of rather Japanese exclusive games coming to the system, the big news is that the Vita has finally received a price cut.
According to Sony Japan’s “Vita Heaven” livestream, both current models of the Vita are set to received a pretty substantial price cut; they’ll shed around 5000 Yen (or R475) from their current prices, making them just a little more tempting.
The price cut could possibly pave the way for a newly updated Vita that includes 4G connectivity and an HDMI out. There’s been no similar announcement of a cut in English-speaking climes, but I suspect there could be one n the horizon – and the sooner it comes, the better for the Vita, and Sony as a whole.
I’ve maintained that the Vita needed two things to succeed: a price cut, and a bunch of games. Now it’s time for Sony to step up and show of the games.
