It's not just PS4 news from Sony at its Gamescom keynote today, the company has also just confirmed a big bit of PlayStation Vita news: it's dropping the MSRP to $199. That price goes into effect tomorrow. Sony also says that it's dropping the cost of the memory cards for the device, although it's not offering specific prices just yet. What's more, the company has also confirmed that a slate of indie games are heading to the handheld console this year, including Fez, which will also be making its way to the PlayStation 4 -- again, further specifics will have to wait, but we'll bring you those as soon as we know them.

Cutting the prices in half would be still be too expensive.

The new price is pretty enticing, though the memory card prices are still too much. There are new price cuts posted on NeoGAF that aren't as "significant" as they need to be, in my opinion. Hopefully, it was a rumor and were not the real price cuts that Sony was talking about in their press conference yesterday.

 

Even with cheaper memory though, I still don't see much Vita games worth playing.
