Daily, Weekly, and Monthly game sales and bargains
Earlier tonight,Hiroshi Kawano, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan announced that the PS Vita will get a price cut in Japan starting at end of this month. From February 28, 2013 on, Japanese PS Vita prices will drop from 25,000 Yen to 19,980 Yen (Wi-Fi model). The price drop will apply for the 3G model as well.
In addition to the price cut, all PS Vita units sold from then on will include a 7-day trial to PlayStation Plus and a free download for the Torne TV service in Japan. If that wasn’t enough, Sony announced that Uncharted, Ridge Racer, and four other titles will be added to the PlayStation Plus Game collection this month.
Keep in mind that the announcement is only for Japanese PS Vita. However, given Sony’s big reveal and announcement plans on Wednesday, February 20, there’s a big chance that this price cut will also apply to North American and European markets.
