EDIT: I changed the name of the thread to be on the safe side. I'll keep my eyes peeled to see if the price changes become official on said date.

 

First full credit is due to thekonamicode on NeoGAF and second full credit is due to Wario64 on CAG for posting the info on the mentioned sites. The price drops are for Vita and PS3 titles, there's a few I've been waiting for on this list.

thekonamicode's full post on neoGAF:

 

Sony Lowers MSRP on 17 titles August 14th (PS3 and Vita) #1

Next Tuesday, retailers nationwide will be permanently dropping prices on 17 titles published by Sony on the PS3 and Vita. Here's the breakdown with the new MSRP.

It is not known how soon the price changes will take effect on PSN.

Vita


Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational - $19.99
Little Deviants - $19.99
ModNation Racers: Road Trip - $19.99
Reality Fighter - $19.99
Resistance: Burning Skies - $29.99
Uncharted: Golden Abyss - $39.99
Unit 13 - $29.99
Wipeout 2048 - $19.99

PS3


Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition - $19.99
God of War: Origins Collection - $19.99
Infamous 2 - $19.99
Jak and Daxter Collection - $19.99
Ratchet & Clank Future: All 4 One - $19.99
Sorcery- MOVE Required - $19.99
Twisted Metal - $39.99
Uncharted 1&2 Dual Pack - $29.99
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - $19.99

*edit*

I just got word that Uncharted: Golden Abyss will only be receiving a $10 price drop, not a $20 drop. So I changed the price listed above (from $29.99 to $39.99)
Sorry about the confusion.

I'll get sorcery for 20 and god of war origins for 20.

waiting until oct. 30 to buy the assassins creed vita bundle, so hopefully uncharted vita is even less by then!

For $20 I'll take the God of War and Jak & Daxter collections sometime this year. I just wish Rayman Origins on the Vita was getting a price drop. $40 for a game that's $20 on consoles isn't a deal.

I don't what Ubisoft was thinking about when they set the price for the Vita version. It should have been $30 from the start and dropping to $20 now. Even at $30 I would like to think some people would've hesistated buying it for $10 more than the console versions.

 

If I remember correctly GrayGargoyle was waiting for the price of God of War: Origins Collection to drop to $20. I will definitely take the God of War and Jak & Daxter Collections for $20 each. I wouldn't mind having GT5: XL Edition for the same price either.
