    Sony will not price cut vita outside of japan

    Earlier this week, Sony announced that itwould be cutting the price of the PS Vita in Japan*to from 25,000 Yen to 19,980 Yen or roughly $215/140 but it seems those savings will not be offered in other regions. According to PlayStation's Shuhei Yoshida, the company has no plans to cut the price of the PS Vita outside of Japan."When you compare the pricing of PS Vita across regions because of the value of the Yen, in Japan the system has been priced the highest," Yoshida said. "We have been selling the PS Vita for 25,000 Yen that's more than $250 when you compare the exchange rate. It's a region-by-region based decision, always."Yoshida along with other PlayStation representatives went on to say that the company also has no plans to cut the cost of the PS Vita's memory cards, which have been criticized for their exorbitantly high cost to capacity ratio compared to other mediums. The cheapest variant, the 4GB version, costs $19.99 in the U.S., while the maximum capacity 32GB model has an MSRP of $99

    well we're still early in the year so anything could happen, I have a feeling they'll lower the price a month before the ps4 is launch or on the same day.

    Well, if you can't lower the price, bring out more games. Gran Turismo for the PS Vita would be a nice system-seller.

    They'll probably drop the price when another model comes out, and that may happen next year.

    Their new promo following the price cut in Japan:



    I get the feeling Phantasy Star Online 2 won't be localized for the PS Vita either which is a shame since it's the only free-to-play title I'm excited for. :/
