Sony announces six week PS Vita price cut for France only

Limited time rebate kicks in on Friday.

Sony has announced a six week PS Vita price cut for France only.

It will offer a rebate of €50 on the PlayStation Vita from 1st June to 15th July.

Sony told Eurogamer: "This is a limited retail price promotion that is only available for a short space of time in France."

Sony's handheld just passed 100,000 units sold in the UK, a figure achieved 10 weeks after going on sale on these shores. It's also less than a third of the sales the PlayStation Portable managed 10 weeks after it went on sale in the UK.

Worldwide PlayStation Vita sales were 1.8 million at the end of March 2012. Sony boss Kaz Hirai described the tally as "a good start".

Sony expects there to be 16 million combined PSP and Vita sales this financial year.
