Forums - Sony Discussion - Vita price dropped to $199 (both Wifi & 3G models). FFX HD shown, release date to be announced soon.

Thoughts?

Vita is saved
Won't do much
Short lived boost
Will increase baseline sales a little

Just announced by Sony, effective from February the 28th. So far they only mentioned the price drop in yen, but I think we can assume the price will be dropped elsewhere too. This is just in time for the batch of games that are releasing soon in Japan.

FFXHD has been briefly shown and the proper announcement with a release date will be made soon.

 

What effect will this have? Will it be enough to save it? What are your thoughts?

Both are $199? What does the WiFi only model have added to it to make up for lacking 3G to justify being the same price?



All I know is now im going to buy a Vita I made $75 last week and I plan to make another $125.
Just drop the memory card prices please....

I know, I don't get it.

Sales should start picking up then after the 28th, albeit a bit slowly.

Time to see some short-term drops though for the next 2 weeks.

We got the Price-drop, now Vita needs its games.

This is only for Japan, right?

And isn't the WiFi already that price? As such I see very little change.

Maybe they meant the Wifi only model is discontinued? Can someone confirm it?

This is for Japan only or all territories?

Wait this stuff only applies to Japan?

The Wifi model was 250 and the 3G one 299.

Well, they only mentioned the price drop in yen but I think we can assume they price will also be dropped elsewhere.
