Sony has said it's too soon to drop the price of the PlayStation Vita, regardless of slower than anticipated sales.
However, retailers may start taking matters into their own hands. As reported by JustPushStart , Target apparently has quite the deal for prospective handheld owners.
The retailer's site is currently offering a 3G/Wi-Fi PlayStation Vita launch bundle for only $179.99, which signifies a hefty discount of $120. This is happening only about 10 months after the Vita launched in North America and it appears that retailers are trying to sell their stock of Vitas…and they're willing to take off a fair amount. Either that, or maybe it's a foreshadowing of a sooner-than-expected official price drop. Do you think you'll see this kind of thing from other stores this holiday season? Is this a bad sign or is this just an anomaly? I wonder if more people might get more interested in Sony's portable due to a few big titles on the horizon…
The Vita could use any help it can get at this point.
