The PlayStation Vita, Sony’s portable device that’s been struggling at retail ever since launch, will see a price cut sometime next year.
When, exactly? Well, the date, along with the new price, are yet to be determined. Sony UK boss Fergal Gara confirmed at the Eurogamer Expo that the Vita won’t stay at $250 all next year, but all the details are “still under discussion.”
“We always aim to establish price cuts. So the question is not so much if, but when,” He told Eurogamer. “We won’t have an across the board price down this Christmas. But what you will see us doing is work very hard with our retail partners to add value to the product to make it more compelling.”
All in all, the price of the Vita makes sense when you look at just how technically solid it is. Yet, the software available doesn’t do much to entice buyers – something Sony hopes to remedy as soon as possible.
“We will be working that very hard over the coming weeks as more and more software arrives.”
