Sony: Too Soon for a PS Vita Price Cut

June 6, 2012 -

If you have been thinking about buying a PS Vita but were hoping that Sony might slash the price of its newest hand-held like Nintendo did with the 3DS you can forget about it. When asked by Eurogamer about the prospect of a price cut for the PS Vita in the near term, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida said that it was too soon to do that.

"From the value for money standpoint, we think we have a good price for what the system is," said Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. "And our priority is to achieve the potential through more games and services."

"Of course people who are looking to buy are also talking about the price of PS Vita, especially when they have to buy a memory card as well," he continued. "That's something we have to spend time to cost reduce and address in the future. But now, our laser focus is to increase the content and to realise the potential of the system."

For now Sony is going to stay the course on the PS Vita price tag, which stands at $249.99 for the WiFi version and $299.99 for the 3G enabled version in the United States.

I'm honestly surprised they haven't killed support for the 3G version yet.

Why would they when they're most likely making a profit on every one sold? Not to mention deals they have with various providers. They'll discontinue the WiFi model before dumping the 3G one.
