If you're holding out for a price cut on the PlayStation Vita handheld games console from sooner, it's safe to say you're not alone. The console has struggled to make a significant splash since launching back in February. But rather…

Sony has seen fit, 9 years after the release of the Playstation 2, to finally bring the price down under $100. The world’s best-selling console ever will be available for $99.99 in the US within a month.

Europe’s seeing a similar discount – from €129.99 to €99.99, but SCE UK is refusing to budge on the UK’s £93 price point. It won’t bother most people – you can get one for £20 on eBay – but it does seem a bit odd that we’re not getting the same reduction.

That’s a saving of £30 over the newer, cheaper RRP of £129 that only took effect in September, a saving which Dan’s girlfriend could then put toward buying Dan a copy of GTA IV to go with it. Dan’s girlfriend would then be left in peace to watch EastEnders while Dan spends hours creating a Dan-like Avatar on Christmas Day.

The Zavvi Xbox 360 madness sale has also seen the price of the regular machine with its 60GB hard drive slashed from £169 to £149, with the price of the Elite CRASHING by…

Klipsch launches new Image X5 earphones, and price cuts for rest of range

Klipsch-Image-X5-earphones.jpg

High-end audio manufacturer Klipsch has just announced a new set of earphones to sit alongside its prosumer X10 and budget Custom-1 models.They’re called the X5s, and they’re ever so slightly larger than the X10s.

That slight embiggening saves £50 in the manufacturing process, which they’ve passed on to the consumer, so the X5s will cost £130. For that, you’re getting 50 ohm impedence, 110dB sensitivity, and -26 dB noise isolation. Klipsch are calling these “the least fatiguing in-ear headphones around”, and they’ll be available in ‘late November’.

BUY THIS GAME: Audiosurf

The incredible, awesome, Audiosurf has just managed itself a 75% price cut, and can now be bought for the staggeringly low price of US$2.50. That’s £1.60. Seriously – at that price you need this game in your life. It’s one of the best PC games this year.

It’s sort-of a cross between Tetris, Guitar Hero, iTunes and crack. It’s a musical puzzle game, but that sounds way more boring than it actually is. You load in any MP3 you like, and from the waveform of the song, it generates a course which you race along picking up and matching coloured blocks. The fast, loud bits of the song are downhill, the slow, quieter bits are uphill. I’ve embedded a video of the gameplay over the jump, to help you get it…
