Forums - Sony Discussion - What will the price be if Sony cuts the price for the PS VITA?

Personally, when I see posts saying that the price will go down to 169.99$ seems stupid for me, just because Nintendo slashed their price that much it doesn't necessarily mean Sony will do the same. 

I will go with 199.99$.

Price cut to 199 wouldn't do anything, at least in Europe. 199 is pretty much the standard price over here. Can get a 3G Vita for 149,90 new right now.

Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

Yes and thats because we already had a price cut here in Europe you genius, a few weeks ago Sony drop the ovp price from 249 for vita wifi to 199 and from 299 for 3g to 249Euro.

Von daher warum erwähnst du Europa hier wenn wir doch gerade erst eine Preissenkung der Vita hatten, in nächster Zeit kommt da in Europa sicher nichts mehr, aber hier geht es doch um die USA und dort wurde der Preis der Vita im Gegensatz zu Europa noch nicht gesenkt, von daher wird die Preissenkung auf 199 Dollar dort sicher auch einiges bringen, in Europa hat es die Vita Verkaufszahlen ja auch fast verdreifacht seit der Senkung.



$50 (and whatever that translates into in other currency) off and it'll do at least OK next year, $80 off early and it could do very well.

If I were Sony I'd go for $50 off in the first half of 2013. 



I'm thinking $75 off Wi-Fi and $100 of 3G (I expect this model to be phased out).

I can't find anything regarding a price cut in europe, except this:

 

Sony will cut the price of Vita by €50 starting June 1, but only in France.

 

The price cut will be available for a limited time, and the sale ends on July 15.

Where you are from? If you are from Germany than you sure saw one of the new "Playstation Vita now only 199 Euro" commercials, this commercials where everywhere in TV around Xmas, at least in Germany and Austria there was  definitely an official price cut and in many other parts of Europa like your source confirmed France and Belgium as well I, but I don't know if this price cut affects wohle Europe by now.



$199 sounds about right.

The corporations generousity is only as good as their marketshare isn't.

PS3 had better deals. Now X1 priced dropped in UK, has constant sales and free game giveaways. PS4....raised prices in Canada. ;)

 

$199 is right on the money, I think.

But I'm unsure if it will do too much good for the Vita.

The price cut for 3DS certainly had a big effect on sales, but I would argue that games like Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 had bigger effects. What Vita needs is a "killer app."
