    No Vita Price Drop This Year

    Sony worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida says it's too early to cut the price of the PlayStation Vita and instead the company will focus on adding value with new bundle packages for consumers. "People like cheap or free," Yoshida told Eurogamer. "Of course, cost reduction is one area our engineering team is working on. But we just launched the platform earlier this year. It takes time to do so.

    So, no price cut this year? "No," Yoshida replied. "It's too early."



    Well this is bullshit, Australians have to pay $300+ for a vita, then a memory card which is $60+ and THEN we need a game which is $100

    this fucking sucks -.-

    Sucks to be an Aussie but really I don't think they should lower the price yet. With the bigger games coming out soon(COD, Killzone, AC3, etc) and the fact that it did just release there still is the big opportunity for it to hit its stride. Sure it may do better with a price drop, but with what's still to come you may never know, the price it's currently at could still be perfect.

    Also, this could all be a lie. Let's say they DO put a price drop, say right before COD. That would be genius imo. With them saying this, people will go out now and buy it, then a price drop will come and even more people will buy it. GENIUS really.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    Well I just picked up a vita today, so to me this is good since I know I didn't waste money... but to others, it sucks.

    I'm happy knowing there's no price drop this year having just bought one, but on the other hand, the Vita isn't close to being worth the current asking price given the shit games that currently out

    That's fine with me, the price of the console is well worth the money to me. (Or at least the Wi-Fi model anyway, G should only be like 10 more than the Wi-Fi, not 50)
    The memory card's are what need to go down in my opinion (but that won't happen because of cross buy, clever Sony give people free games but make them have to pay for the over priced memory sticks due to the free digital games)

    Well with big ticket titles coming this year, it seems right to not drop the price. At first it seemed necessary, but I have renewed faith in the Vita after Gamescom.

You think they're going to go out and spend $250 for a new system just to play another COD game when Black Ops II is coming out as well?

    Not to mention the COD Vita game is being made from the same people who made Resistance Burning Skies which is mediocre at best. There have already been some complaints that the game looks totally different than a COD game which isn't a good thing and I believe its going to be bad.

    Sony really needs to step up their game and make the Vita worth the money to the average Joe. Not to the people who were going to buy it anyways because of all the tech it came with just like they did with the PS3 when it was $600.

    They've got a few big names coming in, but there's really no variety in there yet for me. And a lot of the games I could just be playing on my PS3, the only benefit is that it's on the go

    Show me some exclusive games that are a bit different, and I'll be sold, but for now there's no reason for me to get a Vita other than a few games

    Another bug-bear for me is the lack of connectivity with the PS3 PSN, no chat from Vita to PS3, and I'm sure that you don't even appear online on the PS3 PSN when you're online on the Vita. Two little things, but for someone who plays a lot with a small group of friends, it's a big thing for me.

    The only way that the current library of games would be enough for me is if they bought in a load of cool features or apps such as netflix. Honestly right now I can get more enjoyment out of my Galaxy S3 than I could a Vita

    My brother purchased a PSP Vita off eBay from a private seller that is literally brand new with Uncharted Golden Abyss all in original boxes & packaging etc for 100 with free postage. He got it the other day and it was like it hadn't been used, everything was still in the wrapping etc. How he got it for such a great price is beyond me but i do know that after playing it for a while, i definitely want to get a PSP Vita sooner rather than later.

    I'm still waiting for persona 4 golden so until then my vita will probably remain in it's carrier case under a pile of old uni work.
