Price drop? PS4 bundle?
Sony has published it’s financial objectives for the fiscal year. The report which can be found here covers all areas but one small section said the following about the Vita:
For PlayStation Vita, we aim to secure sales and profit growth through various hardware sales initiatives and the release of compelling software titles.
This could of course mean several things. A price drop would certainly be welcome, as would a bundle with the PS4 (though keeping costs of such a bundle down could prove tricky). It could also of course mean bundled in memory cards and games, but a price drop will most likely have the biggest impact.
Dualshockers also points out:
Gamescom (that will start on August the 21st) would be the perfect place to announce it. Sony announced a price cut for the PS3 in the same Venue in 2011, after all, and the timing is perfect to switch gear in sight of the holiday season.
One thing is for certain; Sony appears to have started listening to gamers more and more recently so hopefully the announcement will be a reality.
