PS Vita Gets Price Drop At Last!

 Sony has recently announced that it will be dropping the price of its PS Vita handheld consoles and its memory cards to coincide with the release of the PS4, which is expected to reach UK shelves on the 29th of November 2013, a mere two weeks after its American release on November 15th 2013.

Sony have decided to drop the price of its Wi-Fi console from £250 to £170, making it more affordable for those gamers who have yet to succumb to the wonders that this miniature version of the PlayStation home consoles has for them.  

Sony have also announced that they will be lowering the price of memory cards for the vita. It is unclear at the moment what the final price drop for these cards will be, but news of a price-drop is likely to be welcomed by the many PS Vita users that have been forced to pay anything from £40 to £80 for the larger memory stick sizes.

It is not certain whether the recent announcements will quell or promote rumours of a PS4/PS Vita bundle that some gamers were hoping for,  however, Sony were very eager to remind its fans that nearly all of the PS4’s games will be playable on the Vita using the consoles Remote Play feature.

The news of a memory card price-drop is great for existing PS Vita owners, especially those who are looking to purchase a bit more space for the new digital downloads that will be heading their way over the next few months. So, will this latest move by Sony serve to make the PS Vita handheld even more popular? Only time will tell...
