PS Vita Price Cut 4-Fold in Japan

Hiroshi Kawano, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, said during a One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 presentation in Japan today that ‘PlayStation Vita sales in the country have increased about four times the amount of units the platform was moving two weeks prior—before the system’s February 28 price drop.’ Here is the original Japanese version.

PS Vita was selling around 11,000 units in Japan around two weeks ago. Could mean that sales will be as high as 44,000 this week? Maybe we should wait until Wednesday morning’s full sales breakdown.

Incidentally, the western countries prices have not dropped despite the poor performance of the hand-held console.
