The lights are on
Last month, Sony introduced a new color for the Playstation Vita and dropped the price to 19,980 Yen (translating to $215). It turned out to be a good move for the publisher, as sales for the system nearly quadrupled after the February 28 price drop.
It's a nice stat for Sony, but they still haven't announced any plans to change the pricing here in North America.

That's great, now do the same thing in the US, and they'll see more sales here, too.
I'm surprised they haven't price dropped it in NA yet, its sales are horrendous.
Sony give me some Japanese games
keep calm, it WILL happen.....just wait and see
When a significant price drop happens, I'll buy. Right now, there isn't a single game that justifies a purchase with the current price.
That's great news hopefully it will inspire them to bring that price drop to other territories as well!
Honestly, I really can't rationalize this system to myself anymore. I bought it early, and after a great group of launch titles, this system has been less than an afterthought for Sony.
E3 was abysmal last year for Vita, Call of Duty was an embarassment, the holidays had practically no must-have titles and now I'm holding out until E3 again even though a huge part of me thinks that I should just sell it now. What a shame. A great piece of tech with virtually zero support post-launch.
Honestly, if they just allowed other memory cards or made their own reasonably priced the total investment would not seem so bad. 32gb for $100? Maybe $70 if you are lucky and find it on sale is still ridiculous.
Is Sony finally starting to make good sales decisions?? This is a good look
Basic economic principle of supply and demand here. Price goes down, and quantity demanded goes up.
