The PS Vita Gets A Price Drop In Japan
Random on February 18, 2013 at 08:46 pm

The big announcement (for Japan, anyway) at this evening's PlayStation Vita 2013 livestream was a price drop for both the WiFi and 3G models of the handheld to ¥19,980 yen (about $214) starting on February 28th. 

Previously, the 3G model of the system was selling for ¥29,980, while the Wi-Fi version cost ¥24,980. This essentially eliminates any reason for the WiFi only model to exist, and should make people more interested in the 3G model, despite it being mostly useless for playing games over 3G anyway. 

No word on any drop in price outside of Japan, or if this indicates that a new model of the handheld is on the way.
