Official PlayStation sweepstakes hints at Vita price drop

  • Posted May 15th, 2014 at 15:41 EDT by PSU Staff

With Sony’s “Road To Greatness” sweepstakes currently underway, eagle-eyed entrants have noticed something very interesting in the official rules that accompany the promotion.
Section 7 of the rule’s lists all the prizes that are up for grabs, which include a PS4, a DualShock 4 and a variety of games, including inFamous: Second Son. One of the prizes is also a PlayStation Vita.

Under this specific listing, Sony states:

“PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, ARV is $179.99”. ARV stands for “average retail value”.

What’s curious about the listing is that the official price right now is $199, so this either has to be a typo by Sony, or it could be that there's a price drop incoming. With sales of Vita not going as well as expected, a price cut now could be exactly what is needed to give Sony’s handheld the boost it needs.
