Price Cut Prompts PlayStation Vita Sell Outs in Japan

Celebrate good times
See that red text at the bottom of those PlayStation Vita promotional posters? That's the sign of victory. After having its price slashed to just ¥19,980 yesterday, Sony’s struggling handheld has finally started flying off the shelves, with the above Akihabara retailer only having two models left in stock.
The image won’t mean much until we get official sales data next week – we don’t know how much stock the retailer had in the first place, after all – but it at least shows that the handheld is finally starting to move units in its home region. Let’s hope that the price cut prompts a mini resurgence for the system over the coming months.
