Rumour: Target dropping price of all PS Vitas to $199.99 from August 18 - 24
|

A leaked ad from the US big box retailer Target hints that its dropping the price on all models of Sony's impressive PS Vita to $199.99 from August 18 -24.

Polygon reports that the wi-fi version will be discounted by $50 to bring it down to the $199.99 pricepoint, while the 3G model will see $100 chopped from its price to match the sub-$200 offer.

These circular scans have a mixed history of accuracy, so take this story with a grain of salt, but a leaked Target circular from earlier in the year correctly identified a substantial price drop for the 3DS and 3DS XL systems, including the limited edition Pikachu Yellow XL.

Assuming that it manifests, this sale is a great opportunity to pick up a new handheld capable of playing great games like Pocket Gamer Gold Award-winners Persona 4 Golden and Dragon's Crown or the Silver Award-winners Soul Sacrifice and Gravity Rush.

We'll keep you updated if this rumour is proven out one way or another.
