Hey, remember the PlayStation Vita? It hasn't been in the news much lately, but a lower price can definitely turn heads.
Unfortunately, it's not an official price drop, but at least you can save a significant chunk of change on a Vita purchase. A leaked Target advertisement (as spotted in the Blu-Ray forums ) says Sony's portable will be marked down to $199 for the week of August 18 through August 24.
We're not sure which model they're talking about, but the ad does say that "all" the systems will be marked down. Currently, the 3G-enabled version sells for $299 while the Wi-Fi-only model goes for $249. The portable did get a price cut in Japan earlier this year, but Sony made it plain that it wouldn't happen in other territories. At least, not yet. Personally, I want to see the price drop right around the holidays when the PlayStation 4 launches. That'd really boost sales, don't you think?
And it would definitely help if Killzone: Mercenary hits big next month.
