Sony prices PS Vita accessories

Sony unveiled accessories for its upcoming next-gen portable PlayStation Vita back at E3 earlier this year, and with the cavalcade of news arriving from the weekend’s Tokyo Game Show, it was only a matter of time before all these accessories were priced. Now they have been, in Japanese Yens, but it’ll give you a pretty good idea of what’s to come once the handheld launches in regions worldwide.

Surprised? For better or for worse? Some of these price tags might seem a bit steep but then again, this is the way companies actually make money with a product that hardly will. Expect cheaper third party accessories to pop up by the PS Vita’s December launch though because, well, that’s just the way it goes.
