Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...

PS Vita 3G Model Slashed To $199 In Select Sony Stores
Posted on Tuesday, March 12 @ 08:18:06 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
If you're in the market for a Vita, but can't justifying spending over $200 for a handheld, I've got good news for you, as the 3G model has been discounted in Sony stores all across the United States.
Instead of paying the $299, you'll be able to pick up one of these bad boys for just $199. When Joystiq discovered the deal, they proceeded to call every Sony store location to confirm the price slash. The responses varied by store, though, a number of stores suggested that the price drop is permanent, as Sony likely plans to discontinue this model.
