Are any of you out there still waiting for that eventual price drop for the PlayStation Vita? Well, in a little over a week, your dreams of becoming an owner of Sony’s newest handheld could come true. Now, although this is not an official universal price drop, Target stores around the United States will be selling Vitas for $199. The generous sale begins Sunday, August 18, and will come to an end on Saturday, August 24.

This news comes in the form of a leaked Target advertisement that we can assume was meant to be shown the following week. Nonetheless, this is fantastic news, and should make up (to some, at least) for Sony’s Japan-only price drop for the PlayStation Vita revealed back in February. Since it doesn’t seem like the official price drop for Sony’s handheld is coming elsewhere anytime soon, I highly suggest you jump on this sale like white on rice. And, if you’re on the fence about whether the Vita’s game catalog warrants a purchase, check out our guide to Vita games to help make the decision easier. I assure you, you will not regret it.
