Sony wowed audiences around the globe earlier today with its live demonstrations for PlayStation Vita, the spiritual successor to the PSP.
Though the software line-up just kept getting better and better, there’s no doubt some had already turned their focus to the Vita’s price-point. Kazuo Hirai was pleased to announce that both models of the Vita will launch below the $300 mark, the wi-fi only version selling at $249, with its 3G enabled counterpart ramping the cost up to $299.
UK-based GAME is one of the first retailers to come forward with an estimate price; £229.99 for Vita wi-fi and £279.99 for Vita 3G. Before everyone whips out their currency converters and bombard the comment section, this price is likely to drop, Sony announcing that an official UK price will be revealed towards the end of the year.
