Sony have announced that they are dropping the price of the PlayStation Vita — both the Wi-Fi-only and 4G models — to $199.99, as well as the prices for the Vita memory cards. The price drop is effective immediately, though apparently someone didn’t tell Amazon just yet.
Previously, the 4G-enabled Vita was $299.99 while the Wi-Fi-only edition was $249.99.
As for the memory cards, here’s how that breaks down:
4GB: drops from $19.99 to $14.99
8GB: drop from $29.99 to $19.99
16GB: drops from $59.99 to $39.99
32GB: drops from $99.99 to $79.99
