Today during Sony's Gamescom 2013 media briefing, the company announced that the portable will be available for $199/€199 beginning tomorrow.

In addition, Sony's European CEO Jim Ryan said memory cards will see "significant" price reductions, though he did not reveal specific pricing information.

The price cut is in place for both the Wi-Fi and 3G PS Vita systems. The price drop was first implemented in Japan in February.
