With business slow for Sony’s PlayStation Vita game system, some might think that a price drop may be in order. Meanwhile, some retailers are clearing out PS Vita inventory with a sale price. This could be merely a way to get rid of slow-moving product, or possibly it’s preparation in advance of newly priced PS Vita inventory.

Target and Best Buy have begun selling both the Wi-Fi and 3G models of the Vita for $199.99, which is roughly about a $50 drop from what the system usually sells for ($100 in the case of the 3G model). Though the quantities are limited online, customers can go into stores and do a price match if they’re able to find it there.

Considering Sony is looking to make big waves at Gamescom this week — and its PS Vita line-up will pick up again next month with the release of Killzone: Mercenary — an official price drop wouldn’t be out of the question. The company’s press conference will be taking place this morning, so we should know more official news soon.
