Japanese PS Vita sales quadruple since price cut
After price cut in island nation, sales of portable device jump by factor of four.
The recent PlayStation Vita price cut in Japan has proven popular. GameWatch reports (translated by Gematsu) that Sony Computer Entertainment Japan president Hiroshi Kawano revealed sales of the portable have jumped by a factor of four since the price cut went into effect February 28.
Speaking as part of a One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 presentation, Kawano said PS Vita sales have quadrupled in the past week, compared to the two-week window before the price cut.
Sony cut the price of both PS Vita models in Japan to ¥19,980 ($214).
Gamers should not expect the price cut to be extended to other markets anytime soon. Sony Worldwide Studios' president said last month that Sony has no plans for a similar price drop in North America. Decisions about price drops are made on a region-by-region basis, he said at the time.
