Rumor – PS4 and PS Vita May be Getting a Price Drop soon

PS4PSVbundlebanner

A rumor has cropped up that Sony might be planning to cut the price of the PS4 and PS Vita. On the official PlayStation retail loyalty site, where North American retail employees can sign up and win prizes or learn about new Sony products, there is currently a competition where employees can win PS4 and PS Vita consoles.

WholesomeGamer took a screenshot of the terms and conditions. And to their surprise, the retail values of the PS4 and PS Vita are changed. The PS4 retail value is at $349.00, while the PS Vita is only at $89.00. This could hint at price drops announced at E3 for both devices. However, this is a rumor, so we need to wait till E3 to find out for sure. Via: VGChartz, Source: WholesomeGamer
