Sony Drops US Price of PSP to $129.99
If you’ve been holding off on buying a PSP-3000, your patience has just been rewarded with a new, lower price.
Sony announced this morning that they will lower the PSP’s price to $129.99 on February 27. This price cut will only be for the US at this time, as a Sony Europe rep has told VG 247, “We have nothing to say at this time regarding the price of PSP within the SCEE region.”
Obviously, this doesn’t preclude the cut coming to Europe as well, it just means that if you’re across the pond, you may want to hold off on buying that new PSP for a little bit. This price cut will also affect the PSP entertainment packs, which will now run you $159.99 (instead of the previous $199.99). Now’s the time to see if you can find that God of War: Ghost of Sparta entertainment pack.
We’ve been expecting this to happen ever since Sony announced their new handheld, currently referred to as the NGP. We’ve laid out why we think the NGP could be awesome, as well as why it could crash and burn, right here.
