What ever happened to the price drop?

#1CrmsnFatalis96Posted 2/7/2013 9:05:37 AM
Last year, a Sony executive in Europe (I think it was) said that the Vita would be getting a price drop next year (now this year).

What happened with this? Have we heard anything else about it? Did it turn out to be a fraud?

I'm thinking about getting a Vita, but I don't want to get one yet if there's going to be a price drop soon.

They said there would be a price drop in 2013. It's coming, but no one knows when.

Just buy it if you want it.

The 3DS and PSVita are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.

That's all I needed to know, I'll hold off until the price drop.

I don't need it anytime soon, I mainly wanted to get RO to tide me over until MH comes out next month.

RO is really bad. But considering what a huge fan of MH you are, maybe that's your thing.

It actually really kind of is(then again I hate MH too.)
playing with others dulls the boredom a little at least.

Target has a Vita LEGO Batman 2 bundle for $199. Free game and a price drop on the console.

For the record. The interview with the Sony representative (who likely isn't the one making the decisions anyway) went something like this:

Q: So a price drop will have to wait until 2013 then?
A: Yes.

That is not an announcement and there has been no announcement. What he meant was that there wouldn't be a price drop in 2012 because that was what they were discussing. It's very likely to happen but there has been absolutely no announcement or official confirmation of a price drop in 2013.
