    True but you could make a few bucks =P Or trade for a game you want.

    This would be a real shitty thing to do since NA just got the slim this month and next month a price drop is announced. Talk about pissing off your consumer base.

    Entirely possible, but they could lower the price of the base models and keeping the bundles at $200. That wouldn't be as much of a hit since the bundles would be a deal with having a system, game, and memory card.

    Sony already said they won't lower the price of the oled any more. No point in doing that since they stopped to manufacture the original model and that majority of the resellers in NA is sold out on the original.

    Honestly if we're even going to entertain a price drop, the best would be a combined unit price drop and memory card price drop, with an 8GB card as standard regardless of if it includes a game or not. That'd be where the perception can turn around a good bit. $179.99 with 8GB memory card, then $199 with Game and 8GB memory card is fine, especially if the memory card prices are reduced by over 30%. Sony's real profits lies in the attach rate, with an average of ten games purchased. The die hard base alone is easily purchasing more than 10. With PS+ driving it up more, if the price is reasonable enough, you can get a lot of people moving up to 32 and 64GB no problem, without feeling burned. It'll only get them more money.

    Agreed a 4-8gb memory card should come with it.

    I'm sure $179.99 will be the price for a no bundle slim Vita. No game, no memory card, just the builtin memory.
