During this morning’s PS Vita conference, it was announced that the console will drop to 19,980 yen in Japan starting on February 28th. It seems that both the Wi-Fi and 3G/Wi Fi models will receive the price drop, rendering both the same price. This is just north of $200 in USD, meaning the price has been lowered $50 and $100, respectively.
No word on if this price drop will also happen in the U.S., but with the big U.S. PlayStation conference just around the corner, don’t be surprised if it drops to $199.99 in the U.S.
