The best UK deals on PlayStation Vita as price cuts arrive

Five months into the life-cycle of PlayStation Vita and retailers have begun to drop the price of Sony’s handheld gaming device by offering cut-price deals to entice gamers.

Play.com has started the ball rolling by bringing the price of the Wi-Fi unit down from £229.99 to £169.99. The 3G SKU is now available for £219.99, a reduction of £60.

Amazon has beaten that deal by throwing in a 4GB memory card for the same price of £169.99 for its Wi-Fi unit. The online retail giant currently does not have any 3G units for sale.

Amazon is also offering those who purchase Vita the choice of one of the following games for just £15.

 – LEGO Batman 2
 – FIFA Football
 – Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition
 – Michael Jackson: The Experience HD
 – Rayman Origins
 – Dungeon Hunter Alliance
 – Lumines Electronic Symphony
 – Virtua Tennis 4

The price cuts are likely to cause other retailers to slash the price of Sony’s gaming handheld, which hasn’t exactly flew off the shelves. Currently, no other retailer comes close to beating Play.com and Amazon, with the best deal outside of the these two coming from Tesco, who is selling Vita for £199.99.
