Either way, like I said before, this shouldn't stop anyone here from buying a Vita.
If the price cut doesn't come this year (now it's harder, but I still believe it's a possibility) it'll only come later next year, as, at least to my knowledge, price cuts don't occur in the first semester - even 3DS "fuck it, let's do it" price cut happened in August.
We're probably 10 months away from it, minimum.
You can actually get a Vita for cheaper than the actual marketed value that Sony put the system on in a few places here and there, I wont be surprised if some more retailers decide to do a surprise temporary holiday price cut for the system.
I'll be getting my Vita sometime in the Fall 2013 (after I purchase a 3DS in Summer 2013). Hopefully it'll have a price cut (especially the 32 gb memory card *_*)
(The memory card prices are the main reason why I'm holding out on buying a Vita, I wont be satisified with a 4gb or 16gb).
