PlayStation TV price cut in the US

Retailers have cut the price of the PlayStation TV in the US, less than six months after its launch there.
 
A number of large US retailers have slashed the price of the PlayStation TV by $20 (£13).
 
In the US, Amazon, GameSpot and Best Buy are all now offering the PlayStation TV for $80 (£53), down from its $100 RRP, as spotted by VG247.
 
The $140 bundle, which comes with the PlayStation TV and a DualShock 3 controller, has been reduced as well, bringing the price down to $99.
 
Here in the UK, the PlayStation TV is still being sold for the full £84.99 RRP in most places, although you might find it for £84 on Amazon or Asda for example.
 
This doesn’t seem to be an official price drop introduced by Sony, but it may well mean we start to see prices for the PS TV decrease in the UK too in the near future.

PlayStation TV went on sale in the US in October, but didn’t arrive in the UK until November last year.
 
It was originally released as a Japanese exclusive as the PlayStation Vita TV back in 2013.
 
The PlayStation TV still lacks key features in the UK, Europe and the US that the Sony gadget boasts in Asia.
 
That includes the option to use streaming services, wider game support and other features that should make this a valuable investment.
