PS Vita price cut to $199/199

The PS Vita usually gets a lot of love at Sony’s GamesCom press event, and this year, among games announced for platform, the system has seen a uniform price cut to $199/€199 that’s effective tomorrow. And a Sony rep also said that the prices of memory cards for the handheld will be decreased significantly.

The system’s price was one of its stronger points at launch, and this price cut likely just makes the portable a more attractive package. Meanwhile, many gamers have been annoyed at the prices for memory cards, so it’s great to hear that those proprietary devices are finally going to be cheaper. But the question is just how much lower the new price will be. We’ll obviously be keeping our eyes on those memory cards for whenever those go on sale.

Does this inspire any of you readers to finally get a Vita? Or is the price still too much?
