Also, Sony stated that they will make significant reductions to the cost of the overpriced Vita memory cards. I can definitely see myself picking up a Vita next year.

So from £170 to £130, same price as the 3DS, it's a start.

Assuming UK gets same cut and add our VAT on top then PS Vita should cost around £152 if I did the maths right but they'll probably add more on. So lets say a £160-£170 price tag is very very tempting to me especially as I will be getting a PS4 in early 2014 and the remote play and future Gaikai stuff that I assume will let you stream games well away from your PS4 etc.

Edit - Just checked a couple of sites, £169.99 for Vita (I assume thats the new price, I don't remember it being that cheap before). Now for those memory card prices.

^ AC: Liberation is pretty decent... I enjoyed it. Not as much as the proper AC games though.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss was a lot of fun as well.
