PlayStation Vita

Price cuts will have to wait until next year, say Sony executives.

It looks like gamers hoping for a price cut for the PlayStation Vita will have to wait.  Earlier this week, Eurogamer interviewed Sony’s Fergal Gara, who confirmed that “a price cut [for the Vita] will have to wait until next year.”

In another interview with Eurogamer, Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida said that “at a certain point in the future [Sony] would like to address the pricing issue for some of the people who are waiting. But this year we [at Sony] are trying to add value by creating different types of bundles.”

So, while it looks like Sony will stick with its current strategy of bundling together games to add value to the Vita, there still is a possibility of a price reduction in 2013.

  • I think the idea of bundling it with the PS3 would help it more.

  • Yeah, bundles work – when you have a fairer price to work with. Instead, all they’re offering are portable versions of Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty with a pitifully small memory card bundled in for what’s basically the same price as a Vita alone. 4GB is terrible for a platform that relies heavily on digital media.

    • Hopefully more attractive games will be coming out for it…until then, I don’t think I’ll be getting one anytime soon.

  • as Jared has said, “sometime next year, it’ll be more affordable to have nothing to play.”
