Many people have been wondering when the PlayStation®Vita will be dropping in price, to follow suite with the price drops that Japan recently had with the PS Vita. Not to mention the price drop success that Nintendo have had with the rival handheld console, the Nintendo 3DS.
Well, a price drop might not be too far away now, as a leaked US advertisement from ‘Target’ shows all PS Vita systems for $200. Yes, that’s Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi & 3G – which, in dollars, equates to a saving of up to $100 of the maximum RRP of a $300 Wi-Fi & 3G model..
According to Joystiq, the advertisement is going to be displayed at Target between the 18th – 24th August.
A price drop in American and European regions has been needed for quite some time. And just to remind you, in case you forgot about PS Vita’s next gen capabilities with the PS4, here’s a quote from the Sony PlayStation®4 press release:
‘PS4 integrates second screens, including PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita), smartphones and tablets, to wrap gamers in their favorite content wherever they are. A key feature enabled by second screens is “Remote Play” and PS4 fully unlocks its potential by making PS Vita the ultimate companion device. With PS Vita, gamers will be able to seamlessly pull PS4 titles from their living room TVs and play them on PS Vita’s beautiful 5-inch display and intuitive dual analog sticks over Wi-Fi networks*1. It is SCEI’s long-term vision is to make most PS4 titles playable on PS Vita*2.’
If the price drop is indeed a permanent one, and not just a temporary flash sale, hopefully we should see some savings this side of the pond, over in the UK.
