Sony has been listening to their community a lot recently, but the one major thing they’ve been complaining about for some time is the price of the PlayStation Vita, and more importantly, their expensive memory cards. Well, they have listened and they finally provided a price drop not only for the Vita, but for the memory cards for the system as well.
You can now pick up a PlayStation Vita for $199 in North America. I have not seen details on whether or not the $199 is for the Wi-Fi version only, with the 3G/Wi-Fi going to $249 but we’ll see soon enough. As for the memory cards, they are now priced as follows:
4GB Memory Card – $14.99 (original price $19.99)
8GB Memory Card – $19.99 (original price $29.99)
16GB Memory Card – $39.99 (original price $59.99)
32GB Memory Card – $79.99 (original price $99.99)
