PlayStation Vita Online Modes Revealed: Near, Party, LiveArea, and Activity -- Will This Revolutionize Portable Gaming?

The price of Sony's PlayStation Vita has officially been slashed in Japan. An announcement from the company confirms that the formerly 24,980 yen Wi-Fi model and 29,980 yen Wi-Fi/3G model will both be available for the new, lower price of 19,980 yen (roughly $215) as of February 28, 2013.

Vita purchases will now also include a free one-week trial of PlayStation Plus. Good idea, Sony. There's no word on a possible change to pricing plans outside of Japan, though such an announcement could come on Wednesday when Sony holds its PlayStation Meeting -- the presumed site of the next-gen PlayStation reveal -- in New York City.
