Following on from the PlayStation Vita price drop in Japan a few months ago which help boost sales of Sony’s PS Vita handheld gaming console considerably.
Stores throughout the US are now advertising a surprise PlayStation Vita price drop from $299.99 down to $199.97 for the Wi-Fi and 3G PS Vita console, even after Sony said a PlayStation Vita price drop would not happen.
The PlayStation Vita price drop bundle includes a PS Vita 8GB memory card and a voucher for a free PlayStation Network game, when you sign up for a data plan. The image above was snapped at the Century City store in LA.
The Joystiq gaming website made a few calls explaining : “once we started hitting the phones, we called each and every Sony store location to confirm. An employee at the Denver location surmised this was a permanent price drop due to a discontinuation of the model and said there was no time frame on the sale in his system, which means Sony can end the sale whenever.”-“New Jersey and Las Vegas locations also told me the 3G model was being discontinued”
