PlayStation Vita gets a Price-cut for Japan
Sony of Japan has announced their struggling handheld will get a price cut in Japan. Both the 3G and Wi-fi models of the PlayStation Vita will receive a drop in price this month. More details below.
Both models will be reduced to 19,980 yen by February 28th. That’s about $215 or £138. No price drop has been confirmed in the West but it is expected to come at the PlayStation Meeting this Wednesday.
Phantasy Star Online 2 is getting a bundle to help spur Japanese sales. It will run you 19,980 yen and releases on March 28th.
Toukiden is a new portable action game from Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force. Its a hack-n-slash title that supports up to four players and allows for cross play between the PSP and Vita consoles. A new demo will be released in April.
The highly anticipated Soul Sacrifice will be released on March 7th in Japan, and there will be a red PS Vita bundle that will run you back 24,980 yen.
Valhalla Knights 3, Gundam Breaker, and God Eater 2 were all announced as well. God Eater 2 is the standout though as it uses the “UMD Passport” system that lets players transfer their original PSP game to the PS Vita. No date was given for each of these games or the Passport feature but they should all be expected to come this year.
