Price drop

16 replies 411 views Edited Jan 7, 2013

Has anybody heard of any news on a price drop for the Vita?

 

 

                                                             

Also any news on borderlands 2 for the Vita?  story below

Gearbox boss man Randy Pitchford has once again hinted that he'd love to see Borderlands 2 on the Playstation Vita, a console he describes as "a really neat piece of hardware".

 

He first proclaimed his desire to Eurogamer when he came to Brighton for the Rezzed show in July. "We're too busy to develop it ourselves," he said. "But I know there are a lot of talented developers who could take our code, our source and our content and perhaps create something like that."

 

Clearly, the subject is still on his mind as he said almost the exact same thing this week while appearing as a guest on IGN's Up at Noon

.

"I think it would be awesome to have Borderlands 2 on the Vita but I'm really busy. We can't do it ourselves," Pitchford explains.

He would, however, be quite happy to work with another studio on the project, and once again urged Sony to help make it a reality.

"If some other studio was capable and could be trusted by us, and by a publishing partner, and by Sony, and someone wanted to invest in making that happen? I think Sony should step up and make that happen," he said. "I don't think it would cost a lot, relatively speaking, and I know there's a lot of talented people who have learned how to use the Vita and could do a great job at that. If that machine started to align itself, I wouldn't be the hold up. I would actually be an enabler."

 

He went on describe his "dream scenario" of PlayStation 3 and Vita interaction.

 

"Imagine you could be playing the game on your PS3 and then, OK, I need to go on a road trip or I have to go to work or something. When I take my Vita with me, I have access to the same cloud save and can continue my character. Can you imagine how amazing that would be?"

 

Don't get your hopes up too high, as it sounds like a Vita edition is still very much in the folder marked "Nice Idea But...", although Pitchford finished by saying he meets with Sony regularly and hopes the subject will come up again.

I've seen my Wal - Mart here offering them cheaper,I'm in IL.They started doing it at mine before Christmas.

The 3G version is now $269.96 down from $299.96.The Wi-Fi model is still $249.96 though.

Hope this helps you a little. Smiley Wink

Where were you on Black Friday? Every major store was selling them for $200.

 

If you go to your local at&t store, they might have some 3G versions available for $200...

Bought my WIFI vita used 3 weeks ago at Gamestop for $179.99. I guess the only thing it didn't come with were the AR cards but I really have no interest in them anyway.

Borderlands 2 on the Vita with cross-play on PS3 would be really awesome. It would bring more people into the Vita. More units sold - more games made - even better system - even more units sold. It snowballs.

 

Come on Sony this is money waiting to be deposited into your coffers.
