Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida did say that engineers are working on significantly cutting manufacturing costs, which will eventually lead to a price cut. However, when asked about 2012, Yoshida says "It's too early."
Adds the president: "At a certain point in the future we would like to address the pricing issue for some of the people who are waiting. But this year we are trying to add value by creating different types of bundles. We announced we will provide LittleBigPlanet PS Vita bundle pack. That's affordable for people who are looking for a good deal."
Recently, the company admitted that third-party support for the console is almost non-existent, which has led to a slow trickle of new "must-have" games.
However, at this year's Gamescom event, Sony unveiled a few flagship titles that gamers seem to be excited for, which should help the company sells some more handhelds.
The overall picture remains Sony needs a price cut on their Vita, but there will not be one this year.
