Eurogamer managed to catch Gara for an interview recently, and the Director had some interesting things to say about the new PS3, the Vita and the Wii. In the interview, he confirmed that they were going to have a price cut on the Vita.
Fergal Gara: We always aim to establish price cuts. So the question is not so much if, but when. We won’t have an across the board price down this Christmas. But what you will see us doing is work very hard with our retail partners to add value to the product to make it more compelling.
Even this week there are some tremendously attractive bundles out there, for example wi-fi Vita plus LittleBigPlanet at the £200 price point.
There’s the wi-fi product again plus FIFA 13 plus Uncharted Golden Abyss plus LittleBigPlanet at not much above the £200 price point. We will be working that very hard over the coming weeks as more and more software arrives.
Eurogamer: So a price cut will have to wait until next year then?
Fergal Gara: Yes.
We’re not sure how much the price will drop but you can catch the whole interview here.
