PS Vita

For those living in North America and Europe, Sony has just announced that the PS Vita and its memory cards have now gotten a price drop. The PS Vita is now going to go for $199.99 in North America and €199 in Europe, a 50 Dollar/Euro drop in price. For North America, the memory cards are being reduced by a range of $5 to $20, depending on the memory capacity. Prices haven’t been listed yet for Europe. These are expected tomorrow when the European price drop takes effect.

This new price drop will also effect the Vita bundles available as well, which includes the  limited edition PS Vita The Walking Dead pack that arrives this week. This Walking Dead bundle will come with a PS Vita 3G/Wi-Fi System, a Digital Copy of The Walking Dead, a 4 GB memory card, and will go for $199 as well.

For memory cards, we have the 4GB ones at $15, the 8GB cards are now $20, the 16GB cards are $40, and the finally the 32GB cards are only $80. This price drop should now be reflected in all North American retail shops today, so those who have been waiting for an opportunity to buy the PS Vita, here is your chance.
