Retailers Free To Compete On Their Own Terms
Sony announced that the PS Vita would receive an official price cut in the US and mainland Europe yesterday, but according to a new statement made to Dealspwn.com, it appears that retailers will have the final say in the UK.
"Regarding the UK price for PS Vita, we don't set recommended retail prices (RRP)," a Sony spokesperson told us earlier today. "Therefore its probably best to check a few retailers in order to find the best price, as this is likely to slightly vary between them."
We've asked for clarification regarding memory sticks. UPDATE: Apparently "nothing has been mentioned" about memory cards, but we'll keep you posted if we hear differently.

UPDATE 2: Zavvi has slashed the Vita's price down to £143.99. Though the price cut may not be official, retailer competition should still lead to some tasty savings.
