Rumors of PS4 And PS Vita Price Drop

A PS4 price drop may have just been confirmed before an official E3 2015 announcement. One popular U.S. electronics retailer currently lists Sony's flagship console for $349.99 in a non-sale fashion. Could a PS Vita price cut be coming too?

Rumors of a PS4 price drop surfaced days ago when little-known gaming outlet WholesomeGamer posted a screenshot from Sony's official retail loyalty site. According to the evidence, the average retail value of PS4 was listed as $349. This is $50 below the usual asking price of $399. Furthermore, Vita was classified with an ARV of $89. That's $110 lower than the handheld's regular retail price of $199.

All things considered, the aspect of a PS4 price drop remains exceptionally interesting. Should one alleged Sony stat be accurate, it's possible that the speculated Vita news might be as well.

If an official hardware price drop is on the way, it's likely that gamers will hear the first confirmed news of it during Sony's E3 2015 press conference on June 15 at 6 p.m. PST.
