Vita Heaven: PS Vita gets a price cut, new color

Late adopters rejoice

So, "Vita Heaven" came and went just a couple of hours ago, and the news was mostly positive. By far the biggest item of the hour was, of course, a significant price-cut to not one but both available models of the Vita (the 3G-capable and Wi-Fi-only ones), to the lower price of ¥19,980 (about $212). While still pricier than the post-cut position of the Nintendo 3DS XL, that's certainly a significant drop, and at just past a year since the system debuted, may anger some early adopters (though I for one am not off-put).

Sony also announced a new color, Ice White, to be included in a bundle that also comes with Phantasy Star Online 2. It's quite pretty, and seems less liable to be a smudge magnet than the basic black model.

Hopefully the announcement should put a bit more fire in the machine's market performance. They kinda need it, to be honest.
