Sony has confirmed that it has no intention of cutting the price of PlayStation Vita in the U.S. just yet.
Quizzed by Joystiq if the high-powered handheld would be getting a price drop, head of Sony Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, replied: “No, it’s not.”
The comments come following the electronic giant’s decision to slash the price of PS Vita in Japan.
Presumably Yoshida’s comments also rules out a PS Vita price cut in Europe, although we’ll have to wait and see.
Sony announced yesterday during the PlayStation Meeting that it will release PlayStation 4 in holiday 2013. The console will share a strong relationship with PS Vita, with remote play being a major focus for Sony going forward.

Would not be surprised if they wait and see what the Nvidia Shield is sold for before they react.

That's a shame. After watching the PS4 reveal and seeing everything that can be done between the Vita and the PS4, I was actually considering getting a Vita sometime in the future. A price drop after the reveal would have made a lot of sales.

I think they are going to wait till E3 or just before. If they want to get the thing in the hands of consumers at or before the launch of the PS4 then they need to drop the price and soon. But not only on the console but also the memory sticks.

@NYFAN75 I agree I think they will drop it at E3 or before the launch PS4 either way I think the price will drop by the Holiday season.
