Sony’s “Hardware sales initiatives” hints to the PS Vita possibly getting a price-drop.
According to their annual report, Sony has promised that it will boost the sales of their handheld platform, the PS Vita, through a process they have coined as “hardware sales initiatives”, which hints towards a possible price-drop for the platform in the future.
Inside said report Sony have said, “for PlayStation Vita, we aim to secure sales and profit growth through various hardware sales initiatives and the release of compelling software titles.”
Even though the PS Vita has had a price-cut in Japan several months ago, the West has yet to recieve such discount. Whilst Sony did say that they had no further plans to price-dropping the PS Vita for the UK, perhaps this is the possible price-drop we’ve been waiting for.
This is good news for those who want a PS Vita but are put off by the price-tag. I not good with industry finance and such the like, but since the Japanese price-cut roughly equals to the price-drop being $215 or £138 it could be possible that Europe could see a similar discount should an actual price-drop come to fruition.
