You can't compare what they did in Japan with what they're doing here. They have to respond to each market appropriately. For one thing, the cost of the unit was absurdly high in Japan to begin with, higher than here. Plus it was selling worse there. And also, improving 6x is really just over the course of a week. Of course an item sells really well the week after a price cut. And we also have no data about whether such a price-cut on the horizon was leaked, which would've HURT sales in the weeks leading up to it. Simply saying sales went up six fold the week after a pricecut doesn't really tell you much of anything.
Sony has repeatedly denied that a pricecut is imminent in the US. I was holding out too, but at $215 for a bundle, this is too good a deal to hold out. A pricecut cannot reasonably yield substantially better prices and if it's not coming until June at E3, then this is a great deal. Of course the price will EVENTUALLY drop, it has to. But I don't see it as imminent.

Yeah I guess the memory card is what really sweetens the deal. Although in NJ I pay tax with Newegg, so most of the "savings" goes to covering the tax.

Isn't this $209 dollar bundle a better deal if you just want the console more then the bundled game?

|tlp||This is so tempting. I'd really rather get just the system and then buy a huge memory card and some games I want.|

The amazon bf bundle was the best deal
$180 shipped for:
- limited edition white vita
- 4gb card
- assassins creed liberation ($20 on eBay)
- all stars battle royals ($20 on eBay)
- 3 Mo. PS+ subscription
- free PS+ games (uncharted, gravity rush, ff tactics)
I sold all the games and men card and ended up paying about $100 for a brand new vita... Bought a 64gb men card for $60 during another slick deal and pretty much never had to buy a game thanks to PS+
