The Sony PlayStation Vita gets an expected price drop for stores in Japan. Both versions of the console will now be priced at ¥19,980, approximately $215/£140. This move is similar to Nintendo's 3DS price drop to make the console more accessible to users. The price is expected to drop this month-end, February 28th, along side the release of the free-to-play software Phantasy Star Online 2 and Ice Silver Vita Model we previously reported. If the price drop wasn't enough for Japan, players can get the PlayStation Plus service for a free week between the period of Feb. 28 to Mar. 18.
